Bare legs, summer dresses and that oh-so-humid Irish weather – it’s a recipe for disaster.

No matter what shape your thighs are, chub rub’s always a danger once the weather gets close and clammy. If you’re prone to inner thigh chafing once the temperature rises by more than half a degree, panic not.

Before you go ditching all of your dresses and skirts in favour of jeans and leggings, grab yourself an anti-chafing powder or balm, apply, and forget your Chub Rub Anxiety.

Here are three we’re loving…

Caldesene Adult Powder, €9.50
“When you walk, your legs glide off each other instead of sticking together,” says our tester. “It soaks up any sweat when applied and it doesn’t leave any white marks.”

Lush Silky Underwear Dusting Powder, €6.50
This powder is meant for all-over use but it works particularly well as an anti-chafing option under sports bras and skirts, thanks to the cocoa butter it’s jampacked with. “I had to reapply a few times during the day but it still worked a treat,” said our tester.

Bodyglide For Her Balm, €7.00
This is the original and best, and while it’s not widely available in Ireland, it’s well worth ordering online. “I can’t believe how well this works. I even happened to use it on an unusually hot day, and it still held up beautifully,” says Lesley Kinzel over at xoJane.
