I know most of you want to break out your skirts and dresses now that the weather is warmer. Over the last few months, I’ve had a lot of questions about preventing chafing, better known as “chub rub”. Over the years, I’ve avoided chub rub by wearing tights or leggings. A few readers suggested products from Monostat - which help prevent and relieve chafing.
In reality, not everyone wants to wear stockings during the summer - and with the amount of sweat I build up in my thigh area, I can’t keep up on applying chemical product. Your questions led me to search for a product that would be easy to use during the summer months. And I found Bandelettes!
Bandelettes are the cute little tan lace yoo-hoos I’m wearing in the picture. They look like the tops of thigh-highs but are worn alone in the upper thigh area to prevent chub rub.
I didn’t expect to love them as much as I do - I have no complaints. After a day of walking in the city, they needed minimal adjustments. On top of that, they are sexy. If you check out Bianca’s post about Bandelettes, you can see how she styled a black pair under her shorts.
Bandelettes are $14.99/pair and come in tan and black. I suggest ordering your pair true to size. If you are 24.4” at the largest part of your thigh (like me), order a size B. If you size up, you risk the chance of them sliding around on you.
Have any of you guys tried out Bandelettes already? If so, what do you think of them?
