Making Thigh Chafe Sexy...

Making Thigh Chafe Sexy...

Hello Wednesday! 

Today I've teamed my navy blue wrap dress with my "Silver Screen Goddess" Lingerie For Thighs (LFTs)  and feeling rather Hollywood!

Why do I wear these?

Well if you've seen any of my Facebook posts @missmonroes you'll know that I am passionate about changing the stigma of thigh chafe (also nicknamed chub rub in the USA) to a more empowered way of thinking.


Just as a little known fact here... I found out that some of our US friends actually like the name chub rub and think it's a cute description. Who knew?

My goal is not to simply apply a positive slant to the issue of thigh rub. I actually feel it's about removing the shame that too many women have around their thighs. I personally spent most of my 20's and 30's in shame about my legs, particularly my thighs. 

I suffered from thigh chafe and if I ever mentioned it, I was immediately ridiculed for not being thin enough. 
So I dieted and lost weight, got down from size 14 to size 8 - and it took all my focus to do so, I had no life!

And guess what? 
I still suffered thigh chafe! And I was grumpy and hungry!

Oh and in case you wonder... My thighs don't suddenly change shape in winter and stop chafing!  Some will only experience it during summer but most have it year round.  #ilovemycurves

My message to all ladies is, if you don't personally experience thigh rub, have a thought for the women in your life.... your friend or colleague or family member probably has had it at one point in their life, it's that common!

Be kind, every human has a thing they wish they didn't. We are all in it together. Spreading awareness never hurts. 💖

Love THIGH self!

You CAN Wear Dresses Again!

I receive many comments from women expressing how they haven't worn dresses or skirts for years.

They felt it was their "lot" in life to wear trousers or leggings under dresses. The reason?...

From size 0 to Infinity

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

 

 

  

Size Guide

Size Guide

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?
  Hey Gorgeous ladies!  I am gradually improving my Sizes 20-22 and 24-26 by applying the
plus+ sizing to certain styles.  This is because I still have stock in those sizes, that were made with the Australian Standard sizing. So at the moment, these are the styles that have the Plus sizing applied... The Marilyn, Swan Lace and Deja Nude. As I order more stock the other styles will become available in Plus Sizing. Thank you for your patience lovelies.
If you are unsure of the sizing, just drop me a line on info@missmonroes.com.au!  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? 

Please let us know using our contact us page…. your request counts!  
We will release these styles sooner if we get enough interest. :)
