For some ladies (and men if you are so inclined) wearing a dress without hosiery (sometimes with hosiery) and without sore chafing thighs is only a dream. Not only is this a real shame as dresses and skirts are so flattering and make many ladies feel more feminine but on those hot summer days, it can become an absolute nightmare as ladies struggle to find long shorts that relieve the chafing but don’t make them sweat or ride up their legs.
I have spoken to many women all of different shapes and sizes and some chafe on their thighs and others don’t. Whilst for many years I assumed thigh chafing was the result of being overweight, I now know that not to be completely true. Coming to think of it, thousands of runner/joggers/fast walkers/hikers chafe and it’s not only women who chafe but men chafe too. I know quite a few men who chafe due to working in heat whether that be indoors or outdoors. Adding all this together then I can only conclude that some people do and some people don’t regardless of their age, size, shape, gender or lifestyle.
Wikipedia states: Chafing refers to the irritation of skin caused by repetitive friction, usually generated through skin to skin contact of multiple bodyparts. Chafing is usually contracted in the inner thighs and inner glutes; armpits and nipples can also develop chafing although it is less common. Add sweating into this equation and that about cover chafing in my opinion.
So for the people who are overweight and chafe, don’t beat yourself up about it. You are not alone, whilst there is no official statistics for chafing it is thought that millions of people suffer from chafing every year.
