You CAN Wear Dresses Again!

You CAN Wear Dresses Again!

Yes!  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?...

They all suffered from thigh chafing.

This is a painful condition when your thighs feel like they are burning from the friction of rubbing together just by walking. This happens when your thighs touch as you walk.

Sometimes it's worse on very hot or cold days. But mostly, if your thighs rub, and you don't have protection, all you can think about is:

- My thighs are on fire!  oh how they burn! 
- Will I be able to keep walking without the pain getting worse?
- I shouldn't have worn this dress!
- Can everybody tell I'm walking funny?
- I'm never wearing dresses again...

It can ruin your day!

Thigh chafe is similar to how a blister forms wearing new shoes... at first you feel some discomfort on your heel, then it gets worse and the blister forms. And if it bursts? You know how painful that is!

Imagine this on the sensitive skin of your inner thigh? #OUCH

It may sound yuk but it's actually a VERY common problem experienced by thousands of women of all shapes and sizes. And I'm here to tell you, there is no shame or need to feel embarrassed or alone.

I too, suffer from my thighs rubbing together. I've had it since I was a teenager and there were no undergarments available that were either pretty or not heavy bike shorts or that didn't cut into my leg (like shapewear).

But I was determined to wear my dresses and skirts again, so I designed my own range of undergarments called Miss Monroes, Lingerie for Thighs!

These will save your skin, you'll feel ultra comfortable and confident all day and best of all you will look and feel gorgeous!

Bring dresses back into your life.  Wear anti-chafing lingerie that makes you feel fabulous and won't ride up or roll down and makes you feel like flashing a bit of leg!

Frocktober 2019

Help Frock Cancer! Each year I wear a dress every day during October to raise money for Frocktober... I encourage other women to participate...but what if you suffer from thigh chafe and can't wear dresses? This is how I hoped to bring awareness to both issues and raise money for an important cause and have fun!

Miss Monroes wants to empower women of all backgrounds and fashion styles to help support this common cause. We know there are a lot of women out there suffering from chafe, who have given up on wearing dresses...We hope to change this forever and as an amazing bonus they can join in this frocking fabulous fundraising campaign each year!

Sizing Chart




Size Guide

Size Guide


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!)
  • 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.

  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. :)
