Let's stop the shame of thigh chafe

Let's stop the shame of thigh chafe

Ladies everywhere... thigh chafing happens! 

We all have uniquely shaped bodies. We all sweat. 

We all have different natural body temperatures and we all have our unique skin type. 

Preventing thigh chafe should be as normal as using a bra for support, wearing active apparel while sweating it out, using deodorant and wearing shoes to protect and support our feet.

Most of us will experience it at some point in our lives... 

Thigh chafe, thigh rub or chub rub (as it's often nicknamed), happens to a great number of us.

Unfortunately many women feel too embarrassed to admit they suffer from it.  

For too long we have been made to feel that thigh chafing is a fat problem.

And yet even when I was at my slimmest (size 8) my thighs still chafed!

The fact is - Men suffer from chafing (just ask any marathon runner! Women included.)
Men, women, children and babies all can suffer from chafing right?

Why then are women left feeling shameful and embarrassed when it happens to them? 

Chafing is a universal discomfort and one of the most common misconceptions is that it is a result of being fat or overweight.  This is simply not true–chafing can happen to anyone, and can occur on any part of your body.

If you have suffered from any type of chafing you will know the potential of it turning from a light irritating rub to a debilitating and painful chafing which can cause scarring.

Did you know women from all over the world, during all seasons, suffer from thigh chafe?
In fact chafing can happen...

  • during as well as post pregnancy
  • while waking along the beach or running a marathon
  • walking back up the beach after a swim
  • on holiday, whether in the tropics or sightseeing a new city
  • during the heat of mid summer
  • whilst out dancing in a club or at a music festival
  • cheerleading, playing netball and beach volleyball
  • working in an office, hair salon, child care centre, hospital (the list is endless)
  • and of course out shopping (even in air conditioning)

When the sun is shining, wearing summery dresses and skirts evoke feelings of being carefree and can elevate our mood.  Don't let chafing interfere with your plans, or compromise what you wear or stop you from enjoying the moment.  There are lots of great products out there that help to prevent chafing.

At Miss Monroes we believe chafe prevention should be as fashionable as the clothes we love and as sexy as wearing lingerie.

Stop the shame of chafing. Let's empower other women by letting them know it's commonly experienced and there's nothing to feel embarrassed about.

This is my story in finding peace with my body...
Since 15 years old, I thought if I could just be slim, I'd be happy. I searched for years for the quick fix to that happiness. Oh how many years I wasted in this depressing pursuit, instead of living my life. 
If only I had made peace with my body, I would have found happiness in an instant (free of charge, no diet or program or years of struggling and frustration needed).
The reason so many women struggle with making peace with their body, is they...

Sizing Chart

SIZING:

Miss Monroes, Lingerie for Thighs are designed to fit comfortable and snug, without the pressure of slim wear. 

  • The 4 way stretch of this high tech breathable fabric means that it will stretch with your body. 
  • The gorgeous lace trim on the leg should hug your thigh to keep them in place and not pinch or be too tight.
  • There may be slight differences in the stretchiness of each type of lace trim.  If you feel your thigh shape needs a little extra room, go up a size.**   : )
**If you are unsure, buy the next size up and if it’s not right,
we are happy to exchange or refund (check our refund policy here).

If you are in between sizes follow this table:
For best results, select the size range you are closest too. 
  • For example if you are in between sizes 14 and 16, yet closer to 16, select size 16-18. (Remember size is just a number!)
    Or
  • In between size 14-16, but you are closer to a size 14? (choose Size 12-14) 
  • If you are truly in-between sizes (e.g. size 11) then use your judgement on whether you think you need a little more give around the leg and lace trim... and select the next size up or down accordingly.

PLUS SIZING?
 At the moment, our
 sizes are based on Australian Standard sizing and don't yet have the specific plus+ sizing applied, so will run smaller than plus sizes. 
I can understand your concern ladies, I would hate to invest in quality lingerie and not have it do the job! Especially from a fellow luscious thighed sister I know the pain! Rest assured Lingerie For Thighs cater to all body shapes and sizes and we also understand that everyone's fit and body shape will be different.  If you would like to try before you buy, you are more than welcome to come and try for yourself at the markets we visit several times a year (join our Facebook page for posts about these events). Or take the plunge and purchase a pair to try on at home and if you need to adjust the size or return them, I offer a 30 day return policy!
You can also contact me to ask specific questions at info@missmonroes.com.au.

Waist Rise: 

There are two waist rise options for preference and comfort (Low and Mid Rise).
Please check the image of our models above to help you compare waist rises,
then refer to the chart for waist measurements.

Leg Length:
The longer length sits approx. mid thigh (on a taller frame) 
and just below mid thigh (on a petite frame).

If in doubt and you want maximum coverage for thigh chafing,
start with our mid thigh length.

Mid Leg
:
Is approx. 18cm from inseam. (Measure from the top of the inside leg at crotch).
Note: This differs slightly on each body shape.
Short Leg:
Is approx. 15cm from inseam. (Measure from the top of the inside leg at crotch).
Note: This differs slightly on each body shape.

Need a longer or shorter length? Need a higher waist?
