The Problem: Chub Rub
Thighs that rub together while walking, causing clothing in that area to become worn and pilled (a.k.a. thunder thighs, thighscrapers).
Thick tights and bike-shorts-style shapers help relieve chafing and provide control in the thigh region, says Catherine Shannon, director of shapewear design at Maidenform. A-line skirts and thicker fabrics conceal larger thighs as well. "Ponte—a sturdy double knit—is your friend," says Glassman.
Pants made of thin, drapey fabrics.
"Pill-resistant acetate keeps these pants from looking worn out." —Adam
