Aussies may joke about having ‘chub rub’, but chafing is certainly no laughing matter, with the burning sensation of the skin rubbing together causing pain, a rash, and in the most severe cases, swelling, bleeding or crusting.
This generally occurs when the moist skin continues to rub against skin or clothes, in a similar way to how a blister forms. It can be more common among those who exercise a lot or struggle with their weight, but ultimately, it can effect anyone – no matter their size or level of physical activity.
Over the years people have come up with solutions to either ease the pain or help prevent chafing from occurring, including coating the sensitive area with anything from Vaseline and nappy rash cream, to deodorant. But, the greasy feeling of the skin rubbing together isn’t for everyone.
That’s where Bella Bodies new coolfit shorts come in. The company has created special anti-chafing shorts that have been designed to stop chafing of the thighs. As the name suggests, the company is Australian, and is in fact classed as the favourite online underwear store for women across the country. And they’ve got a lot of experience, delivering comfortable undies to people’s doors for 14 years.
