I wear under armor style bike shorts under dresses/skirts. Mostly to avoid the forest fire my thighs would start from rubbing together all day. Never wore a dress or skirt to the park though.

I wear a lot of skirts/ dresses and always wear the "spankies" (think, cheerleaders) underneath! A pair of spandex bike shorts is the best idea, fits smoothly under everything too!

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

I can speak for most of the guys behind you in Space Mountain when I say, being flashed is not the end of the world, we're tough, we can take it.

Oh and by the way ... When you going?
I started reading this thread wondering how long it would take for the first guy to give an opinion. I'm surprised it made it all the way to post #12.

Too funny.

Never been a woman, so pardon if this is a stupid question but if one is going to wear shorts under your dress (so nothing of significance shows) why wouldn't you just were the shorts and leave the dress home. Isn't that just another layer on a hot day. Sorry, makes no sense to me. Perhaps I can be enlightened.

I love wearing dresses in the parks! I wore those tight Nike shorts underneath... They're like spanks but have a breathable material. So much cooler to wear dresses. I was thankful to have the shorts on when I got on Space Mountain. I would have been fine without shorts on all other rides. Body Glide is good too as PP have said.

I stole a pair of old time "bike shorts" from DH and have claimed them as my own to wear under dresses knee length or shorter. It helps a lot with the thigh "rubbage" I so despise. I would love to go commando as I think that would be most comfortable, but for those of us with skin that wants to rub and then stick in 100 degree heat, gotta find a happy medium.

It is just more comfortable. The shorts being recommended here, are probably not appropriate to walk around in all day by themselves. Generally thin material, tight. They are mostly used when exercising, not when running around all day with toddlers It is much more airy and comfortable to wear thin shorts with a flowy dress over, than thick jean shorts. Comfort wise, probably comparable to...men's boxer shorts

I noticed this in May. Space Mountain is seriously the worst dress wearing coaster ever invented!

Like another said bicycle shorts being worn as regular shorts is like a guy wearing a speedo as regular shorts... Scary and not appropriate for Disney.

I prefer dress + body glide, or shorts. I personally feel like dress + shorts loses the dress-breeze advantage, lol. I carry the body glide in my park bag to reapply as necessary (after a VERY bad experience at AK once... lmao.)

I will not wear a dress on my Space Mountain day, and I have to be conscious to not put my hands up on ToT if I am in a dress. LOL!!

I second the Jockey Skimmies. They don't feel like another layer at all, you can barely tell they're there but you don't chafe or flash anyone. I wear them under dresses even when we're not in the parks.

This is me too. I always wear shorts under my dresses, Disney or not and up until last year I didnt own a normal pair of shorts, I wore a dress or skirt all summer long.

Yup thats it. That is a good way to put it. I dont wear panties under my shorts, so they are kinda like boxers, or more specifically those boxer brief things guys can buy. You dont wear them by themselves do ya? But it is cooler to have those thin shorts and a skirt than undies and heavier shorts for me and it makes me a bit girly, which I like

Too me at least it's more comfortable. I don't do it to hide anything for me it's basically like wearing a long tank top. It's more comfortable and I need the shorts for the pockets. I am not a purse carrying person.

If you feel your normal undies are not enough, but shorts are too much, try athletic shorts.

Underarmour
Nike Pros

Target also has a decent selection.

Honestly, I wear them under some of my tighter fitting sweatpants (lounge wear or whatever they call it these days) as I don't like panty lines and they also give a layer of support. :-)
