When iced coffee season hits and the last thing I want to do is leave my air-conditioned apartment to trek out into that unbearable summer heat, the main thing stopping me is thigh chafe. Or, I should say, the main thing that used to stop me. I don’t want to toot my own horn, but I may be the queen of chub rub avoidance. I’ve tested countless products created to combat it, from the Gold Bond Friction Defense Stick to Soma Smoothing Shorts to Bandalettes (lingerie for your thighs!). But on extra-sticky days when I can’t take chances, there’s no strategy more ironclad than just making my outfit thigh-chafe-proof.
3. The cropped set: Blue is my favorite color, especially in vibrant shades that really pop. This two-piece set from Eloquii is a sexy way to avoid thigh chafe, with just a little skin shown in the middle. Its light fabric and embroidered detail keep me cool all day; matched with a pair of gold platform sandals and a color-coordinated blue bag, this look is a win-win.
