I don’t know what it’s called but I saw on another post a while ago there’s stuff you can get at running stores for chafing.

Bodyglide is the running tool to prevent chafing – http://www.bodyglide.com/

I usually rub deodorant on my inner thighs to prevent chafing, but I don’t know if it would last that long.

Should this be under “Full Figured”? I’m 5’1″ and 122 lbs. and my thighs can start a forest fire. Ugh and I never even thought about this issues until I saw this post. There’s also a product I’ve used, also for runners, called Udder Cream that works.

I wore some long-line spanx that were a size too “big” so they just did a little bit of contouring and not so much “sucking it in.” They were long – like to the knees, so they helped prevent chafing nicely.

I agree with deodorant though! When I wear shorter summer dresses that’s what I use. It’s something you can easily keep with you, too!

I think short leggings would work too, if they won’t be too hot under your dress.

there is a chafing cream they sell at bicycle shops for riders, it’s supposed to be the hard core stuff… but i know at target Band Aid heel blister cream works really well and you can use it anywhere, it looks like a really small  teal stick of deodorant… or even Cortizone jock itch cream, i know it sounds weird, but it kills the bateria in sweat that causes the chaffing

Baby powder helps.

I’m not full-figured but I definitely recommend “Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

Super random but I came across it when looking for a good primer for my FACE. You can find it for cheap at any Walgreens or Rite-Aid. Yes, I did try it on my face and it works as a decent primer! I tried it on my inner thighs once when I was wearing a dress on a hot summer day and it actually worked for chafing haha.

I haven’t tried them yet, but if you don’t want to mess with Spanx and such, there is Thigh Society

I wore a flesh-colored, spandex shaper, in a very relaxed (too large) size so that it didn’t squeeze my body into a different shape, but it did exactly what it needed to do. 🙂
