The heat is on…. and the thigh chafing struggle is real! LOL

If your thighs are on the thicker side like mine are, then you most likely can relate to having red, irritated upper thighs when wearing skirts!

In fact, I recently shared why I love Friction Defense from Gold Bond. It’s a brilliant way to help prevent burning thighs. After that post went live, so many of you have thanked me, commented, and wrote to me about how you use it now, too! 🙌

I find (especially during the summer) that thigh chafing can be worse when wearing dresses, skirts, shorts, and swimsuits. I still keep a stick of Friction Defense balm handy, but today I’m also sharing another brilliant way to fight the summer chafe!

I love these comfy Emprella cotton slip shorts from Amazon.

I’m a fan of these affordable Emprella cotton slip shorts via Amazon.com, and they have amazing reviews by many others, too! Here’s why I’m loving them…

  • These shorts are made of soft, thin cotton, and are so comfy to wear, plus they don’t ride or roll up.
  • I actually wear them as my undergarment sometimes if I’m wearing a dress or skirt and know I’ll be walking.
  • They aren’t hot, they breathe well, and they wash up great!
  • These shorts are also comfy to wear to bed! I wear slip shorts with a t-shirt sometimes, and it’s a really comfy combo to sleep in.

These aren’t actual workout shorts though.

While not thick enough to be worn as shorts alone, they are lightweight and work great to prevent chafing under clothing. Try these slip shorts as a layer under shorter running shorts!

I’m winning the war against summer thigh chafing!

For me, these Emprella slip shorts just create an overall feeling of comfort, support, and have been a helpful garment for me. I love them, and you may, too!


I also bought these Amazon best-selling leggings, and here’s why I hate them! 🤪

    Try out the cotton shorts at Forever 21. They’re 100% cotton and under $5.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, Mary!

    I wore a similar pair to Disney last week. I wore short dresses to help with the heat and I was afraid of up skirts with the wind and while getting in and out of rides with my 3 kiddos.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Great idea, dblD amber!

  5. Christine

    Chub rub is a must! Lol

  6. big girl

    If your thighs are thicker, you need a bigger size than XL!!!

    • Kathy

      I am bigger than an xl. I wear these and love them. I like the normal ones not the special ones they sell.

        Thanks for the recommendation, Kathy!

    • Meemarie

      Fruit of the loom has plus sizes 3 pack for under $12

    This is great. I wonder if you can workout with them well? I workout a lot but I am an extreme pear shape and my thighs always, always get painful chafing. The skin get’s rubbed raw.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Lisa, I personally would wear them to exercise. I did read reviews and saw people use them under clothing for chafing, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work for exercise as well. They are not too heavy and are made out of cotton.

    • dblD amber

      Maybe too thin for workout. I just bought some compression shorts from old navy and their amazing for working out.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for the recommendation, dblB amber!

    Can you please share what size you ordered Lina?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I ordered an xl – thanks!

  9. H

    Could someone share regarding how the material holds up after several wearings? I have been disappointed by how much many leggings pill and fall apart from friction. Thanks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      These have held up really well! I’ve not been disappointed!

  10. Emilytwinmom

    I have worn slip shorts from amazon for years. Love mine and they wash so well and aren’t control top – I won’t wear clothes that suffocate me!! I have a black pr, tan pr and white pr. Loooove them for under dresses and skirts.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Awesome thanks for sharing!

    • Angie M.

      Do you mind sharing what kind do you wear from Amazon?

  11. CJ

    Has anyone see something similar to this in plus sizes (2x-3x)? TIA

    • Melanie

      I do like the 7 inch+ Danskin shorts ($15 for 2 or so at WalMart) but they are pretty thick and obviously, more expensive. They aren’t always readily available online but I bought my last pairs about 2 years ago and still going strong. I wear under skirts or dresses, as shorts, and to just lounge around or clean (my version of working out). The JMS ones aren’t bad either. I also wear the capris a lot.

      • CJ

        Thank you so much!!!

  12. riss

    I bought these last year when it was posted here and worn them under summer dress when we were in Greece. Very comfy, and I was confident that even when it was windy, i knew I won’t be totally exposed 😉

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks for adding your review! I still wear mine mans love these! Thanks Riss

  13. Heather Freeman

    Target carries, Body Glide for her – Anti chaf and moisturizing balm and it’s awesome!

  14. MaryKay

    Hi Lina, Just want you to know that I adore you. All your research, baking, trying new products and even putting up with experimental fails is totally appreciated. I get excited when I see a new post from you! All of the sidekicks are amazing!🤩

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thank you so much MaryKay! This has already made my day! 💕👏I appreciate your kindness so much.

    I saw the chub rub stick on here and got that. Love it! Feels good.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)
