18 Aug How to Keep Shorts From Riding Up
One thing I am living for is all the solutions we are seeing addressing chub rub (inner thigh chafing) in this godforsaken summer heat. My life is immeasurably better for them. Thank you, Universe. However, a summer problem that still gets my goat is shorts riding up, up, and away into my coocoo. No bueno.
I told my husband, in classic infomercial dramatization fashion, there has got to be something out there for this. It’s gotta be like a liner or a little piece of boning that keeps the inner seams straight and prevents them from rumpling. And wouldn’t you know, after a bit of googling, I found just that.
NoRiders come in various lengths in either sew-in or self-adhesive versions. For my trial, I went with the self-adhesive, which is a little misleading because they are iron-on, not stick-on.
The “stays” run under the seam allowance and the patches iron over them. Honestly, the patches don’t stay on for long but the stays stick! Watch me walk in these shorts after a quick install:
Also, can we talk about the best $8 shirt in the whole damn world? It leaves me satisfied and smiling. That’s what she said.
