So being a fuller figured girl who holds most of her weight on her lower half, thigh rub has unfortunately become a very real reality for me the past 2 years. Especially in the height of the Australian summer when I hang up my stockings, I get caught in this halfway place where its too hot for pants but wearing a dress leaves me open to thigh rub. Being allergic to the silicone means any kind of leg banding just wasn’t going to work for me and the fabric being breathable and comfortable was also important. So I was super excited to be able to road test some Miss Monroe’s anti chaffing shorts, which I was absolutely thrilled with!
Miss Monroe’s is an Australian brand of anti-thigh chaffing shorts, aimed at being functional yet pretty these shorts are great for gals who don’t want to feel like they’re stuck wearing bike shorts. Miss Monroe’s is a boss babe business, owned and run by the wonderful Lisa who started her business to offer women a fun, feminine, flirty option to stopping thigh chaffing! And its a sentiment I truly applaud! Just because something is functional, doesn’t mean it can’t have all the bells and whistles that make me love foundations so much.
Made from a comfortable supplex fabric that not only breaths but has some moisture wick, it means not only do I not feel stifling hot but they stopped me feeling slimey sweaty when I wore them. I was excited for the lace trims on these shorts, which aren’t just pretty but I found also helped stop rolling of these on both the top and the bottom, which was something I was very concerned with initially that I was DELIGHTED they didn’t do (its why I RARELY wear full pantyhose as they always roll on my body). Another bonus of Miss Monroe’s is that they aren’t shapewear! Now don’t get me wrong, I love my shape wear but when its steamy and hot the last thing I want is something constricting me. Miss Monroe’s are stretchy and comfortable to wear without feeling like I’ve got everything sucked in.
I’ve been road testing my Miss Monroe’s for a while now in their pink ‘LA VIE EN ROSE’ Short leg and their ‘SILVER SCREEN GODDESS’ mid leg length shortswhich I’ve worn under a mix of outfits. The short leg have been a life saver with my wiggle dresses that have splits, as they’re short enough to stop the chaffing without being too long that you can see them. I recently wore my Mid-length pair to the Australian tattoo expo for a day of walking which allowed me to wear a skirt instead of pants. I did find the black had more tummy stretch initially than the pink, though after two or so swears it wasn’t noticeable.
I hope you’ve all loved this post and that its helped connect ladies who also suffer from thigh rub with a totally cute way to combat it. Miss Monroe’s range from $69.95-$79.95AU style depending + postage. And Miss Monroe’s also has afterpay for their Australian customers which splits it down to 4 fortnightly payments for you! So if you want to fight thigh rub and look hella cute doing it, snap yourself up a pair now!

*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.
