No More Chub Rub
No matter what size I've been, I've never been one of those people with a thigh gap big enough to absolve me from the worst bit of summer - CHUB RUB. When the tops of our thighs rub together, it causes friction burns that can make even the most glorious of sunny days a miserable pit of hell (no exaggeration. THE BURN).
This year, though, retailers have finally cottoned on to the fact that maybe wearing lycra cycling shorts under everything (my go-to solution for the past decade) isn't the nicest way to spend a blisteringly hot day, and finally put some thought into alternative solutions. Here's the tried-and-tested best - and most affordable - solutions on the market...
The Physical Barrier - Anti-Chafing Bands
Bandelettes have been around for years, but cost about £20 a pair and the elastic goes after a couple of wears, meaning their cost-per-wear is just not really ideal for a summer-long heatwave. Here to save the day, though, is Pretty Little Thing. Their anti-chafing bands are sturdy, stay in place all day, and cost £8.99. They currently only come in black, but I had a word with the powers that be, and they're being restocked in both black and nude. Can I get an AMEN up in here?
