The Chub Rub Club – Chub Rub Solutions Your Thighs Will Thank You

Ways to Keep Thighs From Chafing That Actually Work. Chub Rub

This is the pain felt by every woman without a thigh gap – and there are more of us than you think.

But what to do about it. We want to wear pretty dresses or short shorts but can’t bear the idea of stepping 3 feet without some sort of inner thigh protection.

As a life-long member of the Chub Rub Club, I have had my fair share of uncomfortable situations and dramatic wardrobe changes. Here are a few of the products that I have found do the trick, and a few strategies to keep things cool down there.

Keeping things cool and dry

Preventing sweat before it starts is key to keeping cool and dry in rub-prone areas.

Lush Silky Underwear Dusting Powder

MONISTAT Complete Care Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder


Conversely, lathering it up and giving the skin something to ‘slip and slide’ on is another way of preventing chaffing. Are these starting to sound a little familiar? I feel like this is straight out of “What to Expect the First Year “

Coconut Oil


Anti-chafing balm

An anti-chafing balm will help prevent the skin irritation caused by friction. Balms are an alternative for people who don’t want to deal with messier products.


Gold Bond Friction Defense Stick Unscented

BodyGlide Body Glide For Her Anti Chafe Balm

Physical layers of protection

And the #1 sure fire way to prevent chub rub is to put a physical barrier between each thigh.

JTANIB Slip Shorts for Women Mid-Thigh Leggings Lace High Waist Safety Undershorts

Undersummers Lace Shortlette, Short Length: Anti Thigh Chafing Slip Shorts

Bandelettes Elastic Anti-Chafing Thigh Bands

Thus far, my personal favorites have been Bandelettes (unless you buy the wrong size, then they are horrible and useless), Bodyglide – kinda like deodorant but your inner thighs won’t smell like Raspberries, it lasts longer and the bottle is smaller so it hides better in your clutch- and the sport shorts

These are great for when you have little ones around and aren’t sure if someone is going to flip your skirt or get a little handsy. I dislike Spanx; mostly because of how tight they are but they hide mummy-tummy pretty well so they aren’t completely useless.
