The sun is out and our wardrobe right now consists of lovely, light summer dresses. However, there's one problem that always crops up when we finally put away our winter trousers and opaque tights: hello thigh chafing.
There are, of course, a whole host of products that can help, including one best-selling item in particular that's on our radar – welcome to Marks & Spencer’s 2-Pack Anti-Chafe Shorts.
If, like us, you're searching for a little extra comfort while wearing skirts or dresses this summer, we suggest adding these nifty chafe-preventing shorts to your basket.
Because, frankly, with hundreds of glowing reviews, it's hard to ignore that they're clearly the anti-chafing product of choice for thousands of UK women.
Why we rate it
Marks & Spencer’s 2-Pack Anti-Chafe Shorts come in seven different colours to suit shoppers' natural skin tone, as well as a black and white option.
And the shorts tick all the boxes.
They're made from lightweight and breathable fabric, so they're comfortable in all temperatures. So, yes, you can take them on that holiday to Spain.
They have a smooth, seamless design and are high-waisted, which means they're supportive around the stomach as well as the thigh area, and also give a smooth finish even when worn under skirts or dresses.
They come in seven unique shades, including opaline, topaz, rich quartz, rich amber, rose quartz, black and white. So there's a pair to suit, whatever your skin tone or summer outfit.
The shapewear item is available in dress sizes 8 to 22 and costs £20 for two pairs – so what's not to love? One customer ended up buying six pairs.
You might also want to consider adding the matching Flexifit™ Non Wired Crop Top to your basket, too. Loads of women are ditching their uncomfortable underwired bras for this £20 alternative which has over a 1,000 rave reviews and is available in eight shades.
