The Fight Against Chub Rub: The RETURN!

Y’all, we started talking about chub rub about this time last year as the warmer weather came out of hibernation. And I posted twice before forgetting altogether to finish with round three.

In case you’ve forgotten or are new here, I have giant quads in part because I am a strong human and in part because of genetics. Summer can be a nightmare if I wear skirts or shorter shorts.

Part I: I tried deodorant (ha) and slip shorts (HAHAHAHAHAH). No dice.

Part II: Monistat anti-chafe cream–also a no.

The last item I tried was Body Glide and it–largely–works. It goes on kind of like deodorant and generally, as long as I’m not too sweaty, does the job of keeping my thighs from creating their own angry rash. Is it perfect? No. But it’s better than my other options.

Apologies that it took a year, but since it’s going to be in the 80s this week this information felt especially needed.

The Battle Against Chub Rub: Part 2

In case you were wondering about my battle against chub rub since we last spoke, I’m here to fill you in. Last we talked, I’d picked up  Monistat anti chafe cream to try after other stuff was a bust. Alas, it is only ok. It’s a little messy to put on (not entirely on-the-go since you need to be able to wash up after applying). It lasts only so long before sweatiness wears it down–maybe a few hours. I’ll pick up some BodyGlide this week and see how that goes.

To recap

Slip Shorts: nope

Deodorant: nope

Monistat cream: enh

Here’s hoping Body Glide is the champ in fighting chub rub!
