How to avoid thigh chafing in summer

If you’re someone who associates the arrival of warm weather with the so-called dreaded ‘chub rub’, you’ll be relieved to know that our latest range of clever anti-chafe shorts are now available in store and online. Made from our moisture-wicking Cool Comfort fabric, they are specially designed to reduce the impact of uncomfortable thigh rubbing while creating a smooth no-VPL silhouette beneath clothing. Choose from seven versatile shades to complement all your favourite summer outfits, safe in the knowledge that the anti-static material won’t give away your secret.

Another tried-and-tested tip is to apply a multi-tasking body balm to affected areas to reduce friction. Try Bloom & Blossom’s Wonder Worker balm, which includes beeswax and shea butter to help provide a barrier against chafing. Apply wherever skin rubs and keep in your handbag to reapply throughout the day to minimise any soreness and discomfort.
