How to Avoid Thigh Chafing? The Slip Short Solution

How to Avoid Thigh Chafing? The Slip Short Solution

Thigh chafing… a real problem that totally sucks. If you have this problem, you’re not alone. So many women experience thigh chafing. Why? Because it’s so common! If your skin is rubbing against itself or clothing or becomes irritated due to sweat, you’re chafing - that uncomfortable, itchy, red, and raw look. 

Although this problem is very real (and annoying), it’s also entirely preventable. There are several effective ways to prevent thigh-chafing. But here at Undersummers, we know the best way to avoid this painful situation: to wear shorts underneath your dress and skirts to help create a barrier between your perspiration and skin.

Besides providing a barrier, let’s dive deeper into all the reasons why anti-chafing shortlettes are a game-changer:

Reasons to Wear Anti-Chafing Shortlettes

Effective Defense

Plain and simple, and like we said already, anti-chafing slip shorts prevent your thighs from rubbing against each other, given that extra fabric protection. 


Slip shorts are designed with comfort in mind. They are typically made from soft, breathable materials that allow for easy movement without causing discomfort or restricting your mobility.


Anti-chafing shortlettes come in various styles and can be worn under various clothing. Not just dresses and skirts, but also shorts and even pants. They are discreet and won't show through your outerwear unless you want them to.

Prevent Skin Irritation

By preventing skin-on-skin friction, these shorts help avoid irritation, redness, and rawness, which are painful symptoms of thigh chafing.

Confidence Boost

Knowing that you are protected from chafing can boost your confidence and allow you to enjoy your day without worrying about discomfort and skin issues.


Slip shorts help maintain better hygiene by preventing sweat and moisture from accumulating in chafing-prone areas, reducing the risk of fungal or bacterial infections.


Anti-chafing shortlettes come in cute patterns, styles, and lengths, making it easy to find options that complement your fashion choices and personal style.


When cared for properly, these slip short undergarments can be durable and provide long-lasting relief from thigh chafing.

For these reasons, plus so many more, shortlettes are a fantastic solution for preventing and alleviating this all-too-common issue of thigh chafing.

Choosing the right style that best suits your needs and preferences? That’s another conversation that we’re excited to dive into with you.

Meet our founder: CarrieRae

Undersummers Shortlettes were created CarrieRae's personal need for comfortable thigh protection when she was working as a teacher. In 2011, her thick thighs rubbed and she needed a comfortable solution.  Pants are blazing hot in the Houston spring/summer months, shorts are not acceptable to wear to work, so she was left with capris and dresses.  Her thighs did not support wearing dresses, thigh chafing was too uncomfortable.  The idea of wearing a breezy dress sounded so comfortable to her, that she created the solution to her problem:  The Original Lace Shortlette®️. She wanted something to wear that was a single layer, the legs stayed put, comfy, and most importantly, pretty.
