I know there are loads of over posts out there about preventing chafing…but what’s one more? LOL
I KNOW I will chafe on the wedding day (only 16 days to go!) if I don’t take precautions, and I have thought of using the Monistat chafe gel and the Body Glide…but those are all temporary fixes and I don’t want to have to worry about re-applying throughout the day. And I am wearing 2 garters so I don’t want it to get them all messy. So that leaves me with shapewear…I want a low waist, mid thigh shaper. I want low waist so that it can easily be pulled down to, you know, use the restroom! (I already have a tummy shaper that has bra clips to make that more convenient).
Any thoughts on wear I can find a low waist version? I have found one that should come below the belly button on JCPenny’s website, but is that low enough?
Here’s a picture:
And here is my dress. It’s not a drop waist so I think these would work. What do you ladies think?

I love Body Glide. I use it while running and it is amazing.

I’m sort of not understanding why you’d need to reapply BodyGlide. I thought that stuff lasted like 12 hours. Or so I’m told by a couple of chefs who use it in the kitchen.
Anyway, if you’re set against it, try the skinny britches Spanx – they’re more like control-tops without the hosiery, and they breathe.

I’d be concerned that you will see the waist band through your dress because there is nothing there to camouflage it. Are you wearing a belt/sash?
I’d be more apt to look into shapewear that sits higher to avoid the potential of it showing a line through your dress

So… spanx makes a high waist one that is crotchless…. Not sure if that’s mean for bathroom breaks but it could work…
I’m a fan.

@geekspice: I don’t know anyone that uses it but a lot of the reviews I have read online said that it wears off after a couple of hours??? But you say it lasts 12 hours? Maybe it would work then. I just didn’t want to have to worry about reapplying every few hours, its going to be busy enough as it is!
And would it be ok to wear with my garters? One my grandma is making for me and I want to keep it for like ever! LOL so I don’t want it to get all gross 🙂

I’m having the same issue. I’ve opted for high rise panty hose, as my wedding shoes give me blisters. The Spanx shorts that come up high might work well for you.

@PolkaDotLaceBride: I have not worn panty hose in years! But I heard that they can cause chafing when you sweat…is that not true?

My running gear does not get gross, I would be pissed off if my gear (spent way more than I should to get tha dry fit stuff) got icky. I wear it for at least 8 hours and I have not had a problem.

Dove deoderant. Works like a charm.
