So being a fuller figured girl who holds most of her weight on her lower half, thigh rub has unfortunately become a very real reality for me the past 2 years. Especially in the height of the Australian summer when I hang up my stockings, I get caught in this halfway place where its too hot for pants but wearing a dress leaves me open to thigh rub. Being allergic to the silicone means any kind of leg banding just wasn’t going to work for me and the fabric being breathable and comfortable was also important. So I was super excited to be able to road test some Miss Monroe’s anti chaffing shorts, which I was absolutely thrilled with!
Miss Monroe’s is an Australian brand of anti-thigh chaffing shorts, aimed at being functional yet pretty these shorts are great for gals who don’t want to feel like they’re stuck wearing bike shorts. Miss Monroe’s is a boss babe business, owned and run by the wonderful Lisa who started her business to offer women a fun, feminine, flirty option to stopping thigh chaffing! And its a sentiment I truly applaud! Just because something is functional, doesn’t mean it can’t have all the bells and whistles that make me love foundations so much.
Made from a comfortable supplex fabric that not only breaths but has some moisture wick, it means not only do I not feel stifling hot but they stopped me feeling slimey sweaty when I wore them. I was excited for the lace trims on these shorts, which aren’t just pretty but I found also helped stop rolling of these on both the top and the bottom, which was something I was very concerned with initially that I was DELIGHTED they didn’t do (its why I RARELY wear full pantyhose as they always roll on my body). Another bonus of Miss Monroe’s is that they aren’t shapewear! Now don’t get me wrong, I love my shape wear but when its steamy and hot the last thing I want is something constricting me. Miss Monroe’s are stretchy and comfortable to wear without feeling like I’ve got everything sucked it.
I’ve been road testing my Miss Monroe’s for a while now in their pink ‘LA VIE EN ROSE’ Short leg and their ‘SILVER SCREEN GODDESS’ mid leg length shorts which I’ve worn under a mix of outfits. The short leg have been a life saver with my wiggle dresses that have splits, as they’re short enough to stop the chaffing without being too long that you can see them. I recently wore my Mid-length pair to the Australian tattoo expo for a day of walking which allowed me to wear a skirt instead of pants. I did find the black had more tummy stretch initially than the pink, though after two or so swears it wasn’t noticeable.
Miss Monroe’s, being an Australian brand mean they are made for our summers from the best possible materials. By buying from Miss Monroe’s you are supporting a local business and local industry, which is always a massive plus! For size reference I’m wearing the 16-18 in both of my Miss Monroe’s. The fabric does have some stretch but if in doubt I’d recommend sizing up.
Overall I give my Miss Monroe’s a 10 out of 10 for helping gals who suffer from thigh rub still feel and look cute while offering a functional way to combat the discomfort. It was such a liberating feeling to be able to just throw a dress on and not worry about if I wasn’t gonna be able to do the walking I needed while wearing it due to thigh rub. Free and frilly is something I definitely love.
