Why struggle with chafing when you could be....Chaffree??04:10
I must admit, I wasn't holding out much hope for any miracles when I agreed to review +Chaffree 's Womens Knickerboxers.
The pitch: "Chaffree underwear is designed to offer relief from sweating and chafing."
I was dubious, I have tried other shorts such as Sloggis and the like and even Primark's shapewear and nothing managed to achieve what Chaffree were promising. Could they really keep me sweat-free? Could these shorts see me through a whole Bunny Hop Fitness class without the usual uncomfortable feeling of my undies sticking to my skin?
My first trial of the shorties was for the Regent's Park 10k Charity run/walk for the British Heart Foundation. Now walking that distance for anyone who's thighs touch could be a real concern, no one wants to experience that unneccesary sensitivity between their thighs. Sometimes walking can be extremely uncomfortable, especially when it's warm or when your sweating.
I teamed the Chaffree Knickerboxers with a +PanacheLingerie Sports bra in pink that was very kindly provided for me for the walk too!
Together this pair made my walk a breeze! The walk took me 2 hours and although I was sweating everywhere else my nether regions were super dry! I was in shock! I was so wrong! What is this wizardry? How is it possible?
Chafree's products are made of a seamless and lightweight performance wicking material called COOLMAX®, which is designed to keep skin cool and dry. They are also latex free and they have built in anti-bacterial properties giving relief from sweating and chafing.
OK so they stood the test of walking...how would they cope with an exercise class?
Well...I was again floored by how dry I felt. Sweaty all over...except...there!!
Simply put people I cannot rave about these enough. Gone are my days of chafing, gone are those sweaty uncomfortable journeys home after an exercise class. You just have to try them...
They come up large so upon the advice of Chaffree themselves I sized down. I'm between a size 18/20 and I was sent a size M/L and they fit like a glove, almost like a second skin (you can barely tell you're wearing undies!!
I think for exercise the longer leg lengths would be a good shout to tackle the inevitable odd roll up situation. But even saying that...I readjusted once during the whole hours class when wearing regular undies I'd spend a good 40% of my time "de-wedgying" myself and this class is a wiggle-fest!
Check out the website for styles and sizes but these are for both Men & Women and they are thoroughly worth every penny!!
...now excuse me I'm off to order my lifetime supply....
