How Do You Avoid Thigh Chafing When Wearing Shorts Or Pants?

When wearing shorts or pants it’s common to experience chafing or ‘chub rub’ between your legs. Unfortunately, this painful inner thigh chafing can deter you from wearing certain clothes. But if you suffer from chafing, you actually don’t need to restrict your wardrobe choices! Read on to learn how to avoid thigh chafing when wearing shorts or pants.

What Causes Thigh Chafing When Wearing Shorts Or Pants?

When thighs rub against each other or clothing they get irritated. Sweat and moisture only worsen chafing. Common pant materials, such as the denim used in jeans, are particularly irritating to the skin. Skin-on-skin or skin-on-fabric friction can lead to chafing of the inner thighs, groin or buttocks. Chafing or 'chub rub' is a common issue that both men and women suffer from, and it can affect people of all shapes and sizes.

How Do You Stop Thighs From Chafing When Wearing Shorts?

When wearing shorts, you should wear something tight and fitted underneath. This will help you avoid inner thigh chafing. The layer of protection could be bike shorts or underwear shorts, such as Bandelettes Elegance Panty Shorts.

Summer is the time of year most people experience chafing. It’s also the most common time to experience chafing when wearing shorts. Shorts are a common wardrobe choice for the beach, wearing during exercise, or just enjoying the summer sun. And that summer sun brings sweat, and with sweat comes friction, bacteria, and chafing. Yuck.

So how do we stop the dreaded friction that's the root cause of thigh chafing or ‘chub rub’? You can prevent friction by wearing tight shorts. But tight-fitting shorts are restrictive... and body-con style sorts are not a style everyone is comfortable with. Bandelettes solve this issue. They are worn discreetly under all other short styles. With Bandelettes you can wear denim, culottes, cargos, running or any other style of shorts!
