This condition predominantly flares up in summer, causing discomfort and skin irritation that can even of making walking unbearable. So, what is thigh chafing and what are the best ways to prevent it?


5 Common Causes of Thigh Chafing

  1. Heat and humidity.
  2. Exercise related perspiration, such as a gym workout or running.

Redness and burning sensations are some of the discomforts associated with thighs rubbing together, known as chafing.

Chafing Prevention Tips

  1. Keep the area dry and regularly change your clothes especially after any physical activity that induces sweating.
  2. Rub skin cream onto your thighs regularly.
  3. Wear lingerie items that form a barrier between the upper thighs.

Whilst the first two preventative steps are easily managed, finding undergarments that are suitable can be confusing and demoralising. One of the commonly suggested ways to avoid thigh rubbing is to wear bike shorts underneath clothing; however, on a hot day, additional clothing makes you more uncomfortably hot and can also be unattractive.

Take heart: there is a solution in beautiful lingerie! An effective way to prevent the onset of this painful, and at times embarrassing, state.

Even if no one else glimpses it, you'll have the confidence to move as you please, secure in the knowledge that your undergarments are also a beautiful fashion statement.

    Secret Bands
