As the temperature rises we drop the textile and showcase our summer wardrobe of skirts, dresses. We enjoy going out but are we all so worry-free? I am definitely not as summer means the time for thigh chafing wars which I try to win every year, with more or less success.
Many tips and advice are circulating on internet and I tried them all but honestly putting baby powder onto your thighs while straddle-legged in the toilet of a bar is not so pleasant just as discovering the spots babyoil leaves on your dresses. My secret weapon in the last years was a shapewear with leg parts (like a spanx), laser cut and in nude colour which protected me on hot summer days against the irritating chafing and red dots. There is only one problem with it: it is insanely hot like a sauna belt!
I have heard of Bandelettes before but now the time arrived to test these lace beauties after reading so many positive comments about it. They look like the upper parts of a hold up tights and on the inner side contain 2 silicone straps to provide no slipping. They come in different sizes so measure your thighs before ordering. I chose the black ones but also red, white and nude are available on their site. So it was time for testing!
Frankly I had some doubts: how will it feel to walk around while wearing these bands? How much time I have before they start moving down my legs? When I put them on first it was definitely a strange feeling as I continuously wanted to fix „something” what is going down on my legs but after overcoming this paranoia I pleasently noticed that no chafing occured! Silicone straps really do their job, I just adjusted the bands after wearing them for a couple of hours!
Happiness and joy as the sauna days are over and a new era starts with these lace bands. I am even not afraid if the wind lifts up my dress as they look super cute and sexy!
I’m curious what is your top solution for hot summer days against thigh chafing? Let me know in the comments!
