We have a mixed relationship with the term Chub Rub. Of course, it’s the common term for thigh chafing. While thigh chafing is our favorite topic, "chub rub" can have negative connotations. The #chubrub hashtag takes ownership of this term. The feed for this tag is full of fun positive posts that celebrate natural thighs.
