Chub rub thingies

54 replies

AlternativelyWired · 08/04/2022 20:26

Blush I have well cushioned thighs and the tendency to sweat a great deal as I am pretty active walking up hill and down Dale on t'school run. I have seen the horribly named chub rub snag tights thingies and wondered if these are the ugly answer to my sweaty inner thighs? I would love to be a cool chic woman wafting about the woods in my floaty summer dresses but fear I will look more like a sweaty tomato with a strange walk due to inner thigh sweat rash.

Sloggies and Jockey chafing shorts! Both available on Amazon and both good! Not sure how they’ll hold out on summer but not a bit sweaty for the moment.

I don't know what shorts to recommend, but there's a product called BodyGlide that I think is marvellous.

Usually marketed for distance runners, it's fab against all foms of chafing

Jockey Skimmies!

They were a god send for me when holidaying in Orlando (a lot of walking & very hot/humid).

Got mine from Amazon

Snag tights do them too - shorts for under dresses

I have several pairs from Snag tights of their chub rub shorts. I like them! I do actually feel cooler with them on than without as my skin doesn't feel sweaty under them. They were pretty cheap too so not much to invest to give it a go x

A good thing about the Snag ones is they come in a range of colours that can complement the outfit!

Yep snag ones are pretty good. I use them under all dresses.

The snag ones are really good. I've never found Body Glide or similar products to be up to much - I need a physical barrier.

I'd been wondering about these for ages. Then i had to make a trip to a hot country last summer in the middle of a heat wave. I was panicking over clothing as I was going to be out in it the whole time. I took 10 light cotton dresses and pairs of these chub rub things and they were a delight. Wish I'd bought them sooner! It took me 3 brands to get the right size and fit mind.

Bodyglide is amazing. Plus one tube last practically forever.

I'm going to order some of the jockey skimmies and will look at snag too.

Love my Snag ones! They’re cooling, lightweight and stay put.

I don’t like the snag ones because they’re tights material and feel sweaty and hot. I like the sloggi cotton long leg ones and wear them under dresses and skirts in hot weather. I have them in nude.

I use cotton cycling shorts under my skirts and dresses and sometimes by themselves. The fact that they are all cotton makes.me feel better.

Another vote for the Jockey Skimmies. I love these ones amzn.to/3DS8HFe

I've got them in a couple colours. They're great to wear under summer dresses, but also under shorter dresses on a night out. I never worry about my dress blowing up or sitting down and my skirt riding up a bit too much. They're fab!

I’ve tried a few different brands. My favourite re the m+S anti chafing ones. They keep me cool, dresses don’t cling to them and they don’t dig into my waist.

These come in nude, cream , black or red if you want something glam for under a frock. They look like stocking tops on.

I haven't tried them but in answer to a question on here a few years back a recommendation was to use roll on deodorant ... I know but I tried it & it works

The M&S ones are brilliant. Really cool, and non bulky.
