Prevent Chafing this Summer with The Big Tights Company

The Big Tights Company Anti-Chafing Knickers

We’ve all been there.  Wearing our favourite 50’s skirt or floaty maxi for a day exploring in the sunshine (normally with a few outdoor pub stops along the way) when the day gets ruined from a little overheating and the springs of a rash, sometimes a gaping wound, appearing between your legs from the tops of your thighs rubbing painfully against one another in the heat.

Wearing anti-chafing shorts has long been the solutions for this but I’ve often found them too long to be hidden beneath shooter skirts, or they pop out when crossing your legs in a midi skirt.   The Big Tights Company have taken this on board and bought our a shorter anti-chafing knicker that, I’m pleased to say, sits much higher up on the leg.

Please note, I’ve deliberately hiked my skirt up in all these pictures so you can get an idea of the length of these. 

The knickers (although I wore mine as shorts over the top of my knickers so that I won’t need to wash them with every wear) are made from a soft and comfy cotton material that, unlike many anti-chafing shorts, lets your skin breath in the hot weather.

They sit just above my mid-thigh covering the bulge at the top of my thighs that is the worst culprit for chub-rub.  I’m also glad to say that after several wears they have not rolled up or moved around at all.

I’m wearing the UK size 18 – 22 and they fit very comfortably.   The are nice and roomy with quite a bit of stretch to the material.   I could potentially have sized down but I was smack on the periphery of the two sizes and opted for comfort over constraint – no-one wants to be constrained on a warm, sunny, summer day.

I’m also glad to say that they seem to work!  My thighs have remained fresh, non-sticky, and chub rub free with every where and I’m pretty sure this will continue as temperatures rise.

I actually wore these a lot last week after a pair of tights slipped down and ripped holes in my thighs after a 4k walk across London.   They not only prevents further rubbing but actually soothed the sores – miraculously!

The shorts are priced at £13.95 for one or £38 for a pack of three.   They come in sizes 12 – 36 and in Black, White and Neutral colours.

I highly recommend getting yourself a pair.

Have you tried these anti-chafing knickers yet?   I’d love to know if you found them as miraculous as I have.

    This post is so timely! I am having problems with rubbing even when I am wearing jeans. I don’t know if it’s the length of the crotch or if the waist is too big for me but I end the day uncomfortable. 🙁 Do you think these pants are thin enough that I could wear them under jeans too?

      Hello 🙂 I get this sometimes if the jeans slip down bit when walking. A belt to hold them up does help but you could definitely wear these under trousers! In fact, I have done just that!

        Thanks for replying. I have ordered a 3-pack so I’m hoping they work as well for me as they do you! 🙂

    Great write up Charlotte xx I’ve often looked at anti chafing shorts and thought they seemed a lot of money for what they were but £13.95 makes these reasonable and worth giving a go.

    I haven’t tried these yet but I really want to! Shorter lengths can be so handy, I don’t mind flashing my shorts a bit, but you don’t want them to be too obvious
