Medicated baby powder (with zinc oxide) helps if you don't have Glide.

This has happened to me MORE THAN ONCE!! :( I miss those jeans... *sigh*

I agree with the body glide comment but also I used to wear shorts underneath. You know the spandex ones like cycling shorts (minus the padding) or running shorts as long as they are long enough : )

That's happened to me too! I hate that! Damn my big thighs!

I have found that unscented stick antiperspirant woulds great. NOT the clear kind the regular kind.

My thighs have always rubbed a bit - no matter how thin I get -it's the way I'm built. I've only started running recently so WHEN I get down to my goal weight it will be interesting to see if that changes...

The exact same reason I won't wear a dress or skirt....I tried it this summer and like you said, big mistake. I had a friend who wore the long dresses and skirts but she wore leggings underneath lol.....What are some exercises that you are doing to help?


Well... I think the machine I use at the gym, is called the Hip Adduction machine?? Where you push the weight OUT. ... or is it the one that's called the Hip Abduction... Where you push the weight IN.... One of those...

Well... I do BOTH of them...

I used Desitin in the past. After reading this though, I'm going to try the Body Glide. Thanks all.

I remember years ago I went to an amusement park wearing a pair of shorts because it's Florida and it's HOT. On one of the rides I got a little wet, but thought nothing of it. If anything I was grateful for a break from the blistering sun. Well, then we started walking. A lot. And OMG my inner thighs were rubbing, plus my denim shorts were wet and that just created more chaos with the rubbing and the friction and the moisture and the heat and ljb094nf45vke5425ljnfg;kwejngr. I was waddling everywhere and not having fun anymore...

When I got home I saw I had some serious chaffing going on and it really did look like I was burned on both thighs with like a curling iron, or something. I couldn't but my bare legs together for two weeks. Since then, I have not worn pants shorter than bermudas to any place I knew would have a moderate to severe amount of walking.

Oh, and it was so severe I even still have faint scars. RIDICULOUS.

I have very toned thin legs but at the top I have that aweful "inner leg chub" I recently have started holding a weight in my hands and squating sitting into the squat really low. I do 2-3 sets of 15. I also use a 10 lb weight and have noticed a HUGE difference!! I am so close t the no leg rubbing now! I also use powder on my inner thighs when its super hot out! It helps a ton! Hope you find something that works for you love!

Funny. I just today posted my chub rub NSV. My thighs still touch, but they haven't chafed in months :-)

I used to wear bike shorts under skirts and dresses. They come in various lengths so you can find some for shorter skirts if need be. They helped prevent the chafing, AND I felt they flatted my tummy a bit too.

Yes, that's actually where I got the idea to post this!! ahhaha. Thanks?!

I probably wont be wearing any dresses or skirts for the next couple of months... (winter) BUT, I will keep that in mind!

my lower thighs are incredibly thin and toned especially compared to the rest of me due to walking (fast) and tons of squats, lunges, etc etc.

However my upper thighs still have tons of fat on them - I imagine underneath they are toned but until i lose that fat they are gonna rub.

If you don't already do squats and lunges (And for inner thighs, sumo squats) you will certainly see improvement just from doing that but if you carry a lot of fat there you probably won't be in the no-rub zone until you lose more fat.

I feel your pain though, I basically had to give up wearing skirts because it would be SO painful by the end of the day. Stuff like baby powder or glide should help for shorter term walking.


I need to figure out how to incorporate those exercises into my routine!!

OMG, that is the worst. Then you are uncomfortable (more like in agony) for a few days. noway

Also, sucks, when you're putting the shorts under a skirt or dress, and THOSE RIDE too!! UGH! So embarrassing to pick those out of your bum!

There's this stuff you can get at most work out/running stores. It's an anti-chafe stick, looks like deodarent, but I think it's like silicone. You need to wash it off after you're done with whatever you were using it for, but supposedly it works wonderfully.


I've seen this too but have not tried.

I wear my husband's boxer briefs under dresses and skirts- works for me.

What I hate most is when wearing shorts and they keep running up the middle because of legs rubbing together and then having to pull them back down- very embarassing

When I quote more than one, I right click on quote and select open in a new tab. I do this several times until I have multiple tabs opened. When i have finished reading and selecting which ones I want to comment on I click post reply then copy and paste the quotes from each opened tab. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions of how to do this do not hesitate to ask! flowerforyou

I know what you mean.... I use oil (olive oil or vasline) between my thighs. They justt glide after that . I also use corn starch to control sweat....

Yes. Or you do that nonchalant walk and twist and just hope they loosen and fall back down into place. Sadly, it almost never works. At least for me that is....ohwell
