As long as the dress is light and flowy, I find it more comfortable than shorts. The dress shields my legs from the sun, and the bike shorts protect from the thigh problem. Note, I live in Texas. My go-to for Six Flags in the summer is bike shorts and a broomstick skirt. I also have a sun hat that I soak in water every now and then. That helps a lot.I'm worried about being way too hot with the slip shorts or bike shorts and a dress... we tend to go in August, so that's a real concern. Anyone have any feedback about melting or not?
Wow, wish I were tall and blessed I wasn't going to reply with my $$ idea and am super happy about other suggestions here, then you mentioned needing something taller. LuluLemon has some very light and cool fabric with pockets on each side of their knee-length (on me - should hit you just right) tights. I am a very hot and sweaty person and their light-weight tights are the only ones I can stand - and pockets!Questions on Jockey slipshorts....
So they do they stay in place? you know they don't roll down, and the legs stay put so they aren't riding and bunching up?
I have long legs, so finding something that hits me correctly on the thigh is really hard... I'm 5'9 if that helps, and I am more than blessed in the rear end department... suggestions... do these come in lengths?
We are going down to the Keys with DH's work, and dresses at dinner are what most women wear, casual, beach styles yet very nice...and for whatever reason they always have cocktails outside, pool or beach side and while beautiful setting, its sooooo hot and humid.. and you feel like your melting... so I want something that has wicking for sure... will these do the trick?
I'm heading to Target later on today so I will have to see...

Regardless of thigh covering solution chosen, I also use G... B... Friction Defense - cheaper than B... Glide and works better for us. DS uses it for chub rub - yes, guys in shorts get this too. DD and I don't go a day without it where we are "blessed"...
Because they want to wear a dress, for whatever reason? Maybe they have a cute one, maybe they don’t like regular shorts, many reasons.If you are going to wear shorts anyway, then why bother with a dress? Just put a t-shirt or tank top on. I feel most comfortable with loose shorts and a tank or T-shirt. Definitely need the fabric to be breathable.
In my case, I like the sun coverage of a calf length skirt. I am a pale, practically sun-phobic redhead. I do use sunscreen, but I've found clothing more effective. Also, bike shorts are more comfortable than regular shorts. I'm too fat to wear bike shorts in public where they could be seen. I do sometimes wear regular shorts and t-shirt.If you are going to wear shorts anyway, then why bother with a dress? Just put a t-shirt or tank top on.

We use Body Glide sometimes, or Anti-Monkey Butt Powder. The 'girl' AMBP has cornstarch instead of talc. I use it under 'the girls' too.Oh Thanks for the reminder about Luluemon, we have a outlet here.. so hopefully I can find something that won't break the bank... while I like the jockey material, no way would they ever be long enough.
Yes, with living in Florida, with all that heat and humidity... you need something to keep everything from chaffing, and rubbing, and with all that friction you absolutely need something to protect your skin... all sizes, shapes and yep both women and men...
DH likes Body Glide for him it works best... I have tried body glide for Her and it works good, As well I like Chafing Relief Powder Gel, by Monistat, and the price point is much better, I use it everyday during the summer, pretty much everywhere, not just on the chub rub, it works great around "the ladies". As well it is from a manufacture that specialize in women's products.
We spend alot of time in the water, and I prefer the Chafing Gel... it seems to last longer for me, with all that drying off, and swimming, walking and climbing stairs around the water parks, snorkeling, spending all day on the water on our boat.
I do this as well, with the C9 champion shorts Target used to carry.I wear runners compression shorts under my dresses/ skirts at Disney (like bike shorts but a little thicker material so no see thru), they are moisture wicking but no chance of showing off anything. Walmart carries them in Avia and athletic works brands. They also carry an athletic maoisture wicking skirt with these shorts already sewn in.
