Trophy Wife Tip: Dress Comfort

Ladies, can I talk to you about chub rub? That’s the technical term for when your thighs rub together when you walk.  (sexy, right?)

With this unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having in Michigan, (90 degrees at the end of September??? WHAT?) I’ve been wearing a lot of dresses.

You’ve seen pictures of me, so you know that while I’ve been making progress with my fitness, I mos def do not have a thigh gap!  I love wearing dresses, though, so I’ve tried a few solutions to try and combat the chub rub.

One option is to wear a thigh slimmer ( like this one) that will give you some shaping in the thighs, hips, and waist.  This type of garment is pretty structured and can feel pretty warm under a dress.  Not ideal for a hot summer day!

I’ve also tried a slip short, which is similar to a thigh slimmer, but has less control in it and doesn’t come up as high on the waist.  This is great when you want some smoothing without the restrictiveness of a thigh slimmer, or if you have a more sheer fabric dress and want a little more modesty.  I actually have this style from the JKY line at Target and love it.  The only problem that I’ve found is that the bottom tends to show when I sit down in a shorter dress.  Not cute!

The best solution that I’ve found for me is a product that I hope most of you are using on a daily basis.  Are you ready for this??? It’s deodorant!

It’s no secret! this stuff is magic!

Seriously- take the deodorant that you are using for your underarms and rub some on your inner thighs.  It totally prevents chafing, aka chub rub.
