Count me in on the jeans thing ladies, all my favorite jeans used to wear out there. Don't worry this will get better, it is not so much having a gap as it is just less pressure. So as you lose the weight the pressure lessens and you don't rub the seams out of your jeans any more.

I am wearing denim shorts for the first time in decades without them riding up as well.

I used to do this to jeans when I was at my high weight. I am nowhere near having a "thigh gap" now, but I no longer do this to pants. So I guess the good news is, you don't have to be super thin before this problem goes away.

Meh. I don't care if my thighs touch as long as they don't jiggle.

Invest in better quality jeans. I have NEVER had a thigh gap, not even at a size 0 and 110 lbs, just not the way my body is built---and I've never had that problem with jeans. Ever. I generally wear Seven for All Mankind, Citizens, and I used to wear True Religions (before I got fat---they are not cut for thicker ladies lol) and I still have my fav pair of Citizens that I've had and worn off and on for about 5 years now. Couldn't wear them for about a year bc I got too big, but they fit now, and still no rip in between the thighs. They're well worn, but not close to tearing.

Sure, they're a lot more than $40, but you don't have to replace them NEARLY as often (unless you're planning on losing a substantial amount of weight---don't spend a lot of $ on any clothes in that case) so you're probably breaking even.

My quads are too muscular for a thigh gap. I dont have an issue with pants, but I do have problems with shorts. If they aren't skin tight or super short, they are moving up.

It never occurred to me that there was even such a concept as a "thigh gap." I'm learning so much from this site! Also, I guarantee 99% of guys have never even thought about this... so I wouldn't worry too much :-)


Seriously??? Guys don't think about this??? OMG! I've finally got that gap, probably the first time in my life and I feel like there should be a rush of men to stand outside my door. WTF dude! now you're telling me that no one even effing noticed?

sheez. Keep working girl, I found serious weight training did it for me...I'm shocked, but there it is right freaking there in the mirro.wink

I do not have a thigh gap, and that's never, ever, ever happened to me. I own 10 year old pants and there's nothing wrong with the thighs.
August 2, 2012 2:16 PM
omg i'm right there too, this is the main reason i started wearing yoga style pants all the time, they wear out no question about it, but they are way cheaper to keep replacing and then the jeans become my 'good pants' and last longer!!

This! haha my thighs rub too, but I don't have this problem with jeans. of course, my jeans are $80. I always buy the same brand. I've had some pairs for several years :-) They're still nice

Totally the same thing here! Never ripped my pants but have had many cases of chub rub. I never wear skirts anymore without spandex or something now. I would LOVE to know the feeling of my thighs not touching!

No matter how good the quality of the jeans I buy, my thighs will still destroy them. Only difference is, cheaper jeans fray and then tear and expensive jeans/pants develop a shiny faded patch and THEN fray and tear ohwell

i am not god but i can give you a decent thigh gap laugh

I understand your pain. I've ruined so many pairs of pants because of this same problem. I can't even wear dresses/skirts because I get a heat rash :( But that's why were on MFP, so that we can loose the weight. Maybe we can look into some exercise that are pinpointed to loosing inches in the thigh area? :)

Totally feel your pain! Am wearing jeans that have that problem RIGHT NOW!!! No it's not the type of jeans, all of mine do it. I know it's just what hourglass figures hold their voluptuousness!!!!! Argh!

Even worse is the horrid rubbing/chaffing I get when I wear skirts on my delicate thighs.blushing PS (to combat this I have discovered that using a really good anti-persperant on the area before the chaffing starts will prevent it).


And I feel YOUR pain, or at least I used to. Yesterday was the first day I wore a skirt through the whole day at work with absolutely no problem. My thighs still touch but they aren't rubbing when I walk anymore and they aren't chaffing. What a wonderful feeling!

August 2, 2012 2:26 PM
