Hey Girl Hey!! So listen boos, I have to send a small apology out because recently I’ve totally been obsessing over all things I love about the summer trends like maxi dresses, jumpsuits, and swimsuit. That I completely forgot to tell with you the most important bit of information I could share during the season. So as your official #teamthickthighs representative and boo, before you buy another romper and serve me a mean side eye…
Girl, IT’S CHUB RUB SEASON and WE (our thighs) need to survive!
Known as “chub rub,” anyone who has ample thighs, knows and has experienced this skin irritation that happens when our thighs happily rub against each other, most often in hot weather, causing pain. And some chub rub can turn into a painful scaly rash, which is usually brought on by a lot of walking or other activity in a wet or humid environment. This is how summer becomes miserable.
Here are 7 Products To Help You Survive Chub Rub Season
And over the years, I tried numerous products to prevent, relieve, and ease the many ills of chaffing and as a lifetime member of #teamthickthigh, I must share with you a few finds to help you survive Chub Rub Season.
Bandelettes are fancy wide lace bands designed to stay put and provide comfort and protection against chafing all day long. Once you pull them up over your thick thighs they’re held in place with silicone stay-up bands very similar to the make of lace top thigh-highs and they don’t move! With an array of colors and going up to cover thighs up to 32,” I’m super excited to check out the collection team Bandelettes is bringing to this year’s TCFStyle Expo as they are one of our sponsors!

Monistat Complete Care Chafing Relief Powder Gel
So this is my favorite. Known for their history of curing yeast infections, Monistat had now added a complete feminine care to their brand. This non-greasy, fragrance free gel provides on-the-go daily prevention and relief from chafing and irritation of skin in between the inner thigh, bikini area, underarms and breasts. I applied my 2 quarter size dollops (that dime size application is a joke to these thighs) to my inner thighs in the morning before walking to breakfast and the protective layer would last all day. This was my go to product the entire time of my vacation. I highly recommend it. It can be found at your local drugstore of choice.

I’m a big fan of Sonsee Woman hosiery, so you can guess my excitement when discovering their Anti Chafing Shorts. It’s the little things like the seamless construction in the leg and waistbands for a smooth finish without bunching and riding that makes the comfy anti chafing short so great. Plus the super lightweight breathable fabric is the perfect protector of thick thighs during those hot sticky days of summer in the south.
