I am a size 26 and my best friend is a small size 10 we both get thigh chaff ...its so nice to know its not just a size thing..we are both mad sewers so we decided bloomers were the way to go ...rather victorian but cute ...I myself favour satin bloomers with lace frills in black  she makes hers in tie dyed flannel (for warmth) any costume reproduction site well be able to point people in the right direction ..
and yes, spilt bloomers are still comfy and modest as well as useful under corsets Smiley

Bloomers rock!  I always wear skirts, and bloomers really do help with the chafing problem.  I made mine out of lightweight cotton broadcloth or calico, and they're very comfortable, even in hot weather.  I'd love to find a split bloomer pattern, if you can recommend one. 

I despise pantyhose.  I can usually find hose that fit, but I can't stand the things.  And they don't do a thing to prevent chafing.  I usually wear my skirts long enough so that I can wear knee-highs and nobody will know the difference.  Smiley

Alright, after walking for hours on end at bonnaroo this year, i've discovered something that works.  THAT WORKS!  It was suntan oil.  I just greased them up and BAM!  no pain!  no chafing!  It was like I weighed 80 pounds!  magic!  Not practical for everyday application, perhaps, but certainly good to know.

My new blog.  Crochet, recipes, whatever.

Ok, pantyhose are the devil. I have not worn them since prom, (seven years and counting) and I absolutely hate them.

Fortunately, I don't have chafing issues. Strangely enough though, my husband does. We got him some Monistat (don't tell his friends) and it works great for him. Even though it is designed for women, it works great in the manly areas... maybe more than you wanted to know, but it doesn't cost much and it is worth a shot. We also tried getting him some boxer briefs (to keep his legs covered in fabric) but it didn't help at all.

The slippery feeling isn't a bad thing. My legs feel slippery after I shave them, just because they are smooth.

Boxer-briefs rock. Plus, they don't ride up like panties do. I wear them all the time.
