I’d like to wear a sundress this summer, but I find I get so sweaty that my legs rub together and it is very uncomfortable. Is there any way to fix this problem? Thanks, Jean
Dresses are a great summer option if you don’t want to wear shorts or Capris, but with the warm weather many gals suffer from chaffing. There are a couple of things you can do about this.
I highly recommend that you try some shapewear under your dress. The little “bike short” style is perfect to go under any sundress and will totally eliminate the chafing problem.
Be sure to buy the thigh slimmers that have a flat band around the leg so they don’t roll up, and that are long enough for comfort (probably right above the knee). Not only will they stop your thighs from rubbing together, they will smooth out your legs and midsection too!
Another option is a product called Body Glide. It’s like an antiperspirant stick. It’s non-greasy, stops friction and creates a protective barrier on the skin. It allows perspiration to pass through to cool the body, but it doesn’t get trapped on the skin.
You can use Body Glide on your legs, under your arms, or where your bra straps irritate your shoulders. It also works on your skin where sandal straps may rub. This product has had rave reviews.
I hope that helps! Cheers, Deborah
