Chub rub is no joke. It’s a real fact of life for many women who weren’t born with a thigh gap. It makes summer even more unbearable for millions of us. What is it? It’s when your inner thighs rub together while you wear skirts or dresses — lots of friction from walking irritate your tender skin and a rash occurs. Chub rub itches, burns, and stings and you don’t want to be caught with your hands in your crotch area. (Because of it I have a girl friend who only wears shorts or jeans in the summer). It’s a shame because there are lots of solutions, from powders to oils to undergarments. Check them out and get some silky thighs!
1. Jockey Skimmies ($20)
Made from comfy microfiber with extra cotton along the inner thigh to prevent chafing.
2. Bandlettes ($16)
Sexy lace bands to wrap around your upper thighs. Think of garter belts without the panty hose.
3. American Apparel, Motion Shorts ($40)
I love these booty shorts for underneath shorter skirts and dresses. Plus I don’t have to worry about bending over. Since their cotton, they are breathable and can double as work-out shorts.
4. The Body Shop, Beautifying Oils ($14)
I love these dry oils from The Body Shop because they are always on sale and smell divine. Of course, there are lots of dry oils on the market and they’re a great alternative to heavy body creams in the summer. I just apply it to my inner thighs after my morning shower.
5. Lush, Silky Underwear ($8)
I love this all-natrual green brand. “Grated cocoa butter melts onto the skin for a silky sensation, and the absorbent powders make sure your body doesn’t feel greasy.” Think of it as a luxurious Gold Bond. The main ingredient in both products is cornstarch, a long time secret of chefs for anti-chaffing that readily accessible.
This is a wax-based product that’s sweat-proof and also water-resistant. It can be used all over your body, including your feet. Bonus points for you if it fits nicely into your purse.
