We all want to look our very best, wherever we are and whatever we’re doing. So, there’s nothing worse than experiencing thigh chafing that prevents you from wearing your favourite wardrobe classics. There are undergarments available that can help relieve skin rash or burn from pesky inner thigh rubbing, but most of them aren’t compatible with your favourite pants, skirt or activewear. We’ve put together a few ideas to help you stay chic during ‘the chafe’.
Ladies, opt for the two T's – Tunic-dresses and tights
The beauty of the tunic dress is that anyone can wear it. It’s pretty easy to find a tunic to suit your figure, no matter what size or shape you are. What’s more, you can convert a fabulous long top that’s a few sizes too large into a chic A-line or belted tunic dress.
Skin that is chafed or burned loves natural fibres, so choose leggings, tights or stockings in a soft cotton or bamboo to help discourage more thigh burn and allow that rash to breathe.
Dress trousers and chinos cover a multitude of sins and… chafing rash
Dress jeans can be way too abrasive on sensitive and chafed skin and can often cause more problems than they solve. Invest in a few pairs of flattering dress pants or chinos that are light and comfortable. These look great with a contrasting jacket and ensure your thighs aren’t regularly meeting down at the ‘chafé’.
Gents, remember, low on the hips may look cool but low in the crotch could be the reason you’re totally on fire down there! Keep those inner thighs covered with a dress pant that fits you perfectly.
Wear comfort thigh bands or anti-chafing guards
Honestly, this is the easiest way to dress when you have thigh rash or burn. Even better, anti chafing bands can be worn with just about every outfit to prevent thigh rubbing or rashes in the first place. Imagine being chafe-free and not having to select your leisure or dress wardrobe based on that embarrassing and uncomfortable inner thigh problem.
Why manage a problem when you can avoid it? These beauties fix one of the biggest problems that underwear and activewear don’t - they prevent thigh chafing and heat rash without covering your crotch. Let’s face it, we all need to breathe down there and your crotch just doesn’t need to be suffocated with more layers.
Thigh bands are discreet and specifically cover the upper quad or top of the leg. This means you can go back to wearing your favourite shorts or skirt without having that bike short, camel toe look. They fit comfortably under your jeans, shorts, or suit pants and can be hand washed and dried in a jiffy. With anti-chafe guards, your inner thighs get a holiday and you get your entire holiday wardrobe back! What’s not to love about that?
Anti-chafe thigh bands are available in a size and colour that’s just right for you, so fashion is not forgotten. These little wonders are style and substance, so go ahead and add them to your wardrobe of fashion staples, and get back to dressing exactly the way you love!
