The One Where I Discuss Chafing Solutions

Finally, I am back. 
Too many computer glitches last week.


Now, on to the post.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yes, I am going there.
Please forgive me,
but the warm weather has this concern on my mind.

I have some chunka monka on my inner thighs,
don't be afraid,
I will not share it with you.

I will save you the horror.

However, this can cause a HUGE problem
in the fun and warm weather of
Spring, Summer, and even California Fall.

I adore dresses, and I even wear shorts,
which I know many gals do not do.


I even wore this get up to the Farmer's Market last week; 
that's why I am holding a carrot.

Skirt: Nordstrom BP (OLD), Shirt: Target, Black flats: Macy's, Yellow Hair Bow: Nordstrom (OLD),
Black Hoops: Target (OLD), Heart Necklace: Mervyn's/gift, Bracelet: MA Gift from mom

With these types of garments my 
oh so lovely inner thighs that rub together
(GROSS. I know. Again, I apologize).
I need something to help keep from getting chafed and burned.

Enter my awesome pal Jackie
who about four years ago shared with me this 
AWESOME
tip.

DEODORANT.
Oh yes ladies, deodorant is for far more
than those lovely pits. 

There are two ways you can do this.
First, you can just use your deodorant stick, preferably not the gel kind though.
It doesn't really work as well.

Or, you can use spray on deodorant.
This is often my prefered method.

In addition to chafing;
again I forwarn you that this is a bit personal; 
if you are a larger busted woman and you experience
some stickyness and sweating due to this,
spray some of that spray on deodorant
under the lovelies too.

I just hate when my shirt is sweaty under the girls.
It is in NO WAY attractive or comfortable.

Okay, so now that you probably are disgusted
by me and never want to visit me or my blog again,
go get some deodorant
and think outside the, eh, packaging.


Other chafing helpers are:
Baby Powder
SPANX (they can get sweaty and moist though. YUCK!)
Corn Starch

Love ya, mean it!

  1. On the contrary--I LOVE this post. I always tried powder but it didn't last--I never even considered deodorant!

  2. Genius! I always go the powder route too and after a few hours it fails miserably. I LOVE that you are open about this!

  4. As a distance runner, we have our own solution - Body Glide! Things that are only mildly annoying just walking around become insanely painful when multiplied x26 miles! After a couple of bad experiences, I learned to Glide everything up before a long run - the list includes between the toes, inner thigh, top of the crack (tmi!!), below the bust, and inside the arms. Aquaphor also works pretty well, but doesn't have as much staying power.

  8. Oh my gosh this cracked me up when you said "I'm going there"! Great tip :)

  9. Oh yeah-I use this method all the time. But, I find it wears off after a couple of hours...so I guess I need to carry some deoderant in my purse and take advantage of bathroom breaks.
