Now that spring is here, many of us are trading in our jeans and trousers for our favourite dresses and skirts. However, thigh chafing can be painful and annoying, and can cause many people of all shapes and sizes to avoid wearing their favourite spring and summer looks.

The friction caused by thighs rubbing together can be extremely uncomfortable and painful, causing everything from redness to burning sensations, itchy skin to blisters. Luckily, there are easy ways to save your skin and enjoy your favourite warm weather styles, like sporting a pair of cotton boy shorts under your skirts and dresses.

Amazon Canada's four-pack of boy shorts from Wirarpa make a great option for those looking to protect their skin from chafing — and they're currently on sale for just $37 (that's $9.25 each!).

What people are saying

Wirarpa's multi-packs have earned a solid 4.4-star rating based on more than 1,700 customer reviews from Amazon shoppers.

The shorts have been called a “go-to” to wear under dresses to “prevent chub rub” in the summer months. Amazon shoppers have said they’re “stretchy, comfy” and “not see through” which makes them ideal for wearing on their own.

“They’re very comfortable,” one shopper wrote, adding that they “prevent chafing” and fit over their belly while feeling like they’re “barely there.”

“They are my new favourite underclothing,” an Amazon reviewer said.

Despite the positive reviews, some shoppers have cautioned that the shorts can shrink after washing, and have a very high waist that might be uncomfortable for some people. Other shoppers have noted that they've had to size up to get a more comfortable fit, which might be a good idea considering that they could possibly shrink after washing and drying.


If you're on the look out for a pair of comfortable shorts you can wear under your spring and summer looks to prevent chafing, Wirarpa's four pack might be for you. The high-rise bike shorts are designed to prevent rolling and can be worn on their own as a trendy bike short for summer. Although there are tons of positive reviews online, you should be cautious of sizing when you order — since some shoppers have said that the cotton and spandex blend shorts can shrink after washing.
