* Junior high school girls in Japan typically wear their gym shorts (knee-length) under their (calf-length) uniform skirts. This is a practical necessity when they have to switch to their P.E. clothes two or three times a day, in schools which lack changing rooms. Most boys wear their shorts under their uniform slacks for the same reason.
** This also applies to elementary school girls: many of them, especially in the older grades, wear shorts to keep their modesty.
* The majority of schoolgirls around the world wear shorts under their school skirts, whether it's for warmth or modesty.
* Skorts (skirt + shorts), which are ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* Cosplayers dressing as sexy/scantly dressed characters can choose to wear underwear underneath the costume to prevent breaking city codes or harassment.
** Even those who wear more modest costumes sometimes wear modesty shorts, thanks to the distressingly large number of people who try to get peeks or take pictures up skirted cosplayers.
* Cheerleaders typically wear a type of shorts that are a bit of a cross between large panties and tight shorts. They would basically have to since most routines seem at least partly designed to flip up their skirts as much as possible.
* Medieval Icelandic women wore pants -- ''women's'' pants -- under their skirts.
* Many [[IdolSinger idols]] wear them in performances, to keep their pants from showing in dancing numbers.
* At Scottish cultural festivals, male athletes and dancers are required to wear black shorts under their kilts.



* UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers covering Wimbledon and other tennis events used to salivate about skimpy knickers worn underneath short skirts. At one point even respectable broadsheet papers were competing to get the most embarrassing upskirt shots of the women players (together with any NippledAndDimed wardrobe malfunctions). Most women tennis players today wear a variation of a theme of Modesty Shorts as well as better-fitting sports bras, which has caused this old newspaper tradition to wither and die.

This is where [[TitleDrop Modesty Shorts]] come in. They let a girl or woman run, jump, tumble, fight, [[SkirtsAndLadders climb ladders]], or even fly without anyone catching a glimpse of her underwear. Other common variations are large puffy bloomers in non-period pieces which are used as a bit of a fancier version normally on more gothic characters. In Western works, spankies are worn for this purpose under cheerleading outfits, or sometimes tights or leggings.
