A light summer dress is a must right now- but there's nothing more uncomfortable than feeling your thighs rub together in the summer heat. 

And while there's a whole host of products to buy to prevent chafing, there's one item in particular on our radar - Marks & Spencer’s Cool Comfort Anti-Chafing Shorts.

So if, like us, you're searching for a little extra comfort while wearing skirts or dresses this summer, we suggest adding these subtle shorts with hundreds of rave reviews to your basket ASAP. 

Why we rate it

Marks & Spencer’s Anti-Chafing Shorts are not only finally back in stock, but they also now come in more colours to suit shoppers' natural skin tone as part of the brand's “Nothing Neutral About It” campaign.

These shorts tick all the boxes.

They're made from lightweight and breathable Cool Comfort fabric, so the tight-fitting design provides comfort at all times - and in all temperatures.

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.

The best part - they recently have expanded their former collection of three colourways, they now 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 summer ensemble you want to throw on.

The shapewear item is available in dress sizes 8 to 22 and cost a mere £12 - so what's not to love?

You may find you quickly go back for more, as one customer ended up buying six pairs!  

You may also want to add to your basket the matching Flexifit™ Non Wired Crop Top , for which women are ditching their underwired bras. 

The comfy £20 bra alternative, backed up by over 800 reviews, is also now available in the same five new shades.

What the reviews say

Shoppers can’t get enough of the products, which have received, on average, 4.5 stars out of five.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • "I bought one pair and found them so comfortable, I now have 6 pairs."

  • "Bought some of these last year and found they did a great job in stopping my legs from rubbing when it’s hot. Fit really well and give you some support around the tummy and bottom."

  • “Kept me cool, stopped my inner thighs from getting hot and rubbing together, easy to pull on and off, good quality material as I thought I'd snag them like tights and didn’t. Loved them so much.”

  • “Lovely thick waistline that sits nice and low on me. Thin stretchy fabric, really smooth and flattering under clothes. Nice length for when you're wearing skirts and dresses, gives you a sense of protection if there's a sudden gust of wind!”

  • "Yesss, I can wear dresses again! Very comfortable, perfect fit and length. They don't ride up, they don't fall down and they're not too tight around the waist."

  • "Comfy and cool ... very thin and the white may not be suitable as actual cycling shorts, but they are good as underwear."

  • "I don't often write reviews, but felt I had to for these if it means someone else is 'released' from the burden of sore rubbing thighs!!...If you are unsure then all I can say is give them a go, they are really comfortable, I didn't find they made me sweaty...Can't recommend them enough!"
