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:

Note, these stays are best used with shorts,¬†like these¬†from rue21, that have a “true” crotch, meaning the crotch touches your crotch. I just said crotch too many times. This is because the shorts will stop riding the second the stays reach your panooch.

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.

I have to preface this post by saying nothing will ever replace crop tops in my heart. Nothing. Feeling myself hard enough to wear a crop top was a life-changing experience. I understand how trivial that sounds but imagine if you were my fupa and you spent your entire life in hiding and one day, a magical piece of clothing set you free. So, yeah. Just let that simmer for a while.

Even though crop tops were my number one middle finger to fatphobic fashion, mesh tops are really rising to the top of my list. But how about a mesh top you can tie into a knotted crop? Mind blown.

Pink concha

Sure fine I gave you life but I can see that’s not enough so here take my delicious concha. Grumble.

I actually blame the serendipitous concha/lipstick matching to my recent pinktastic episodes in which I just pile on the blush and bashful to an obscene degree like right about now…

Yep. Those are fuzzy pink sandals. And pink velvet.

And it’s imperative that I talk about this bralette I am wearing–my first purchase from Rue 21. While I love bralettes and have learned to embrace my natural breast shape in return for ditching fucking underwires, this magical thing told me I could have it all. It has structure AND comfort. It is Christmas.

So do you guys remember those Magic Slate things where you can draw or write on neon pink plastic that clings to a white board underneath? This top makes me feel like a human version of that.
