For some reason, this seems to be a sensitive subject, but that’s a bit silly, so let’s get real. For those of us with thighs that are friendly with each other, summer can be a bit painful. However, I’ve blissfully lived in dresses and skirts for the past couple of hot seasons with help from some underwear discoveries.
I have about five pairs of these. They come in ‘Cooling’ which functions a bit like sports stay-dry. Go for mid-length ones, the short ones don’t offer much in the way of chafing prevention. These are not shapewear, but they are super comfy and won’t leave weird lumpy bits where the shorts begin and end. They go on sale fairly regularly, so keep your eyes peeled.
I’ve had a pair of these for many years, and the elastic has stood the test of time. It prevents nasty chafing and gives you a bit of holding in around the tummy and waist. It’s not Spanx level constriction by any means, more of a medium level of support. Perfect for those days you don’t want to work up a sweat wrestling your way into serious shapewear.
So break out those dresses and do some twirling.
