We welcome sunny days, but not the unwanted side effect that often comes with them — inner thigh chafing, also known as chub rub (here’s why we’re embracing that term). Warmer temperatures call for skirts, dresses and shorts, but that can also lead to our thighs rubbing together. This can become painful over time, leaving the skin feeling inflamed and irritated.

There are many ways to prevent chafing, and we think the best one is what we’re famous for — our chub rub shorts. Anti-chafing shorts are specifically designed to serve as a physical barrier between your thighs to prevent the dreaded burning sensation created by your skin rubbing together. They help reduce sweat, too, allowing you to go out and about during your day feeling comfortable.

How will chub shorts change your life? 

Thigh chafing can range from a slight annoyance to outright pain, causing redness, welts or rashes on your skin. It might be a small change, but adding a pair of shorts to wear under your clothes can be truly life-changing.

Chafe-Free Days: How many enjoyable days have been cut short because they’ve been ruined by inner thigh chafing? Too many to count. Anti-chafing shorts allow you to go about your day’s activities, whether that’s walking, sightseeing or meeting friends, without a second thought about your thighs chafing.

No Extra Baggage: Some people try to stop chafing through products such as powders, deodorants or anti-chafe creams. Often these products work, but only for limited amounts of time, meaning you have to re-apply which can be inconvenient and time-consuming.

Barely There: Imagine feeling nothing at all on a warm day — no chafing, no excess sweating, no discomfort, no digging in. That’s what happens when you’re wearing the right pair of anti-chafing shorts, since they create a breezy, comfy barrier for your thighs.
