Whether you are wearing dresses, skirts or pants here are some tips to help you pick the right undies to support you all day long.

Underwear to prevent chafe


Since moisture is a main cause of chafe, it it is important to ensure that the fabric is moisture wicking to ensure you stay cool and dry.

Doesn’t roll up

You want to make sure you buy the right size so it doesn’t roll up or down during wear. This can cause more irritation and discomfort. Typically if they roll down, they are too small and if they roll up at the thigh, they are too big. That is why it is important to measure before you buy and to try on for a few minutes at home first over clean underwear incase you need to return it.

Is comfortable

This one goes without saying, but you want to make sure the pair you choose is comfortable! Some anti-chafing shorts on the market are also shapewear which can leave you feeling squished. Last time I wore a pair I took them right back off before I even left the house. So make sure that your undergarments are usable when you need them.

Doesn't require layering

The best anti-chafe underwear for women is comfortable enough to wear on its own without the need for extra layers.

Soft fabric

Again, comfort is key when it comes to anti-chafing underwear for women. The pair you choose should ideally be made of soft and breathable. This helps you stay comfortable and at ease all day long.

No panty lines

One of the most important bonuses to consider before purchasing anti-chafe  underwear is to find a pair that won't show up any unappealing lines or VPL through your clothing. Smooth lines is important - especially when wearing tight clothes.

So if you're looking for a way to stay chafe-free this summer, don't forget to pick up a pair of anti chafing shorts!
