Everyone knows that summer is the best season, like, by far. You get to wear your cutest outfits, you get to go swimming, the sun is out and the fun is out. I especially love summer because I get to wear my shortest skirts and dresses and not worry about being cold. I also get to wear Gold Bond Friction Defense. I mean, really, I get to wear it year round, but it’s especially relevant in the summer. If your thighs touch, then you know about the pain that is chub rub or thigh chafing. It’s seriously a nightmare; who knew that just being a living human being with thighs that touch could cause you so much pain? But there’s good news! Your summer doesn’t have to be ruined if you use these terrific, chafing-preventing products!
This post is not sponsored by Gold Bond Friction Defense, I just really love it.
This is what I use literally every day of my life. I’m very fat, and last year I decided I wanted to get rid of all my pants and all my leggings, so every day I wear a skirt or dress, and every day I use Gold Bond Friction Defense, and every day it works like a wonder. I haven’t had a single minute of chafing or discomfort since I started using this. It’s basically a stick of deodorant designed to wear on your inner thighs. It’s simple, it’s easy, and it works like a charm.
I have a pair of these and they’re really cute! They look like lingerie, so if you want to add a cute or sexy look to your outfit while also preventing chub rub, this is what I’d suggest. They don’t always stay up for me if I’m walking around all day, but it could just be me and my giant thighs. But I’d definitely recommend these if you want to make your outfit look extra cute while preventing chub rub.
These are a classic solution. They’re underwear, but the legs go down your thighs a few inches so that they cover up the exact part of your thighs that would normally be rubbing together. Supergirl wore these for a while as a part of her costume so that she could fly and not have people look up her skirt. If they’re good enough for Supergirl, they’re good enough for your thighs.
I use this product every day of my life. It’s no joke, no exaggeration, my favorite product that I use or buy. I can’t recommend it enough or enough times. It withstands sweat, water, a full day of walking, 100 degree weather, anything. It’s a miracle product and I don’t know how it was made without the use of magic.
Out of every chub rub solution I’ve heard, this one gets the most praise. Like, Lush is a high quality brand, everyone loves their bath bombs and soaps and body washes, and everyone also swears by their Silky Underwear Dusting Powder. If I were to try something other than Gold Bond Friction Defense, this would be my first choice.
I don’t know anyone personally who uses this, but Monistat is usually well regarded by women, right? I’m also very unsure what a powder gel is, but the box says it “combines the protective benefits of lotion and powder” so that sounds pretty good.
Now, I have heard a lot of good stuff about Bodyglide, and it’s packaging calls it the “original” anti chafing balm, so I think this stuff works. If you’ve heard lots of good things from your friends and are looking for a sure shot, this is what I’d go for. Unless you can choose Gold Bond Friction Defense.
I’m in love with Gold Bond Friction Defense. If I could get a sponsorship from one company, one product, I’d want it to be this. Like, I’ll star in commercials for them in exchange for a lifetime supply, they don’t need to actually pay me. Actually, if we’re being real, I’d pay them to let me be in their commercials. Seriously, My thighs have about seven square miles of skin that are constantly touching and rubbing each other. I don’t wear pants, shorts or leggings and it’s extremely rare that I wear tights. Gold Bond Friction Defense is what I use. If you ever listen to one piece of advice from me, let it be to wear Gold Bond Friction Defense.
