I have been a chubby gal my entire life, and as much as I love my curves, there are things I have to think of that others may not. When I was about 8 years old at summer camp, we were outside playing games and all of a sudden my inner thighs hurt every time I moved my legs. At
the time, I had no idea that the cause of this was chafing, it was just something that was painful and embarrassing. Over the years, when the sun was brighter than ever and my friends were in
shorts and skirts, there was me in pants and leggings under my skirts, dying in the heat, but it was better than the pain that came if I wore my bare legs.
Through those hot months, I was never able to wear what I wanted. If you know me, I have an affinity for all things skirts and dresses, so something had to change. I have been on an eternal search for the right hack for my chub rub. For years I wore shapewear, which helped with the chafing, but man are they ever hot—I would work up a sweat just trying to get them on! Also in the past few years, I have fallen more in love with the way I look and no longer depend on shapewear to conceal my belly, lumps and bumps, so I needed a new option, stat!
That’s when I found Undersummers by CarrieRae: these Shortlette Slip Shorts have a seam free inner thigh that ensures additional chafe protection and durability. The stay-put leg resists the dreaded pull-your-shorts-down leg creep. These features insure a perfect fit! Available up to size 4X, Undersummers are designed for maximum comfort and made for all-year-round wear.
And did I mention how extremely breathable they are with their stay-cool fabric? I barely feel like I have anything on, except my oh-so-happy thighs know that I do… as they aren’t chafing at all. They also have the added benefit of being adorable and coming in many colours for any occasion or need, which is great for this gal, who has been known for having a few Marilyn moments in her day.
