Talc!!!!  And lots of – that’s what I did and it worked a treat.

24hr anti persperant deoderant works a treat….especially if you sweat under breasts or under the tummy area. You can also get a small bottle of it and get one of your girls to keep it on them in a bag (then you can re spray if needed). 

I lost over 20kg (3 stone, I think) and that helped a lot.

I’m a big girl, my thighs always rub.  Talc can help but it’s very likely you’ll sweat so much it’ll run off.  Plus talc isn’t good for your lady parts, can cause infections. 

Anyways, I bought some “petti-shorts”. They were white cotton shorts and they did wonders. My legs didn’t rub or hurt at all. Plus it was a very hot wedding day and they soaked up some sweat lol

Just wear the tights, and then whip them off.  Be comfortable!  My BFF wore tights under her dress and was very happy with the choice.

My friend got married last weekend, and for her rehearsal and dinner, I wore a long skirt. My thighs kept rupping together and it was very hard to walk up and down the aisle for the rehearsal. I expressed my frustration to the brides sister, so the day of the wedding she gave me some anti-chafing cream, and it worked great. I didn’t have any problems. If you get very hot during the evening you could always re-apply! Best of luck to you.

What about the shaperwear with legs? Like the longs ones that go over the knee or just above the knee spanxx style. Powder (talc) is helpful but you’ll probaby have to reapply throughout the event.

@Lyndzo:  +1 to pettishorts or something breezier and more comfy than tights (if i know i’m going to be doing a lot of walking in a dress,i usually sliip on thing spandex shorts underneath- comfy, provide some action of spanx without being restricting, and stop thigh rub!)

no one will even know you have them on, and you can probably find some that are really pretty & can double as sexy lingerie for the night of! 

maybe something like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/98866814/silk-wrap-around-boxers-bridal-lingerie?ref=sr_gallery_10&ga_search_query=bridal+lingerie&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_min=0&ga_max=0&ga_search_type=all

Go to a sporting goods store of look online for body glide, it looks like a deodorant tube. It is antichaffing used forathletes but works wonders for thighs. Also works wonders on your feet to prevent blisters. I wear a full business suit and heels all week and would die without it.

several things

Spanx has a new mid-thigh slimmer that is made of very soft, wicking fabric.  They are wonderful.

Body Glide or Lanacaine’s anti-chafing creams work wonders.  I prefer the Lanacaine because it goes on silky smooth.  Body Glide I use more for preventing blisters when wearing not so comfortable shoes

@mecattacow:  Have you tried long stockings with a good suspender belt? If you’ve got a small waist and bigger hips they’ll stay up and with a little trial and error you’ll find stocking that are a perfect fit. I wear stockings with really short suspender straps (so that they sit right up by my knickers) and it’s a really good way of preventing chafing.

I’m pretty sure that would fit in with your fiance’s ideal whilst protecting your thighs.
