Chafing is irritation of the skin. This skin irritation is caused by moisture and friction resulting in a rash. When you have cheap underwear that doesn't cover the upper thighs properly, your thighs rubbing together causes red spots that can become very sore. Not only can chafing happen in the thighs, but it can also go to the groin area as well. This skin irritation can be extremely uncomfortable and make you self-conscious.

What causes chafing?

Your skin may be strong, but it can only handle so much friction. Chafing occurs when your skin is constantly rubbing against skin or other materials like clothing. Add moisture to the mix and you have the extreme discomfort that comes from chafing. Many different things cause this to happen. Things that cause chafing include:
  • Exercise: During your workout, you have repeated motions along with sweat causing the friction to be worse and create problem areas.
  • Clothing: Having clothing that fits too tight can cause chafing, especially in your upper thighs.
  • Weather: While everyone loves fun in the sun, it can be a breeding ground for moisture and combined with friction, you have trouble on your hands. Not only can this hot and humid weather cause chafing itself but can also exacerbate symptoms due to excess sweating.

How To Prevent Chafing

There are many ways that you can prevent chafing and stay comfortable. Below you'll find ways in which you can prevent chafing so you can continue living your most comfortable life.

Anti-chafing Underwear
Having the right pair of underwear is key to preventing chafing. Anti-chafing boxer briefs are the perfect fit to keep you at maximum comfort levels. These types of underwear offer optimal comfort by giving you thigh coverage and a breathable groin.

Powders, Creams, Lubricants

Once chafing has occurred you may feel like you've lost against moisture, but there are ways to help this. Many companies have come out with different products including powders, creams, and lubricants to prevent chafing and help it heal once it starts.

As you go on your search for the right pair of anti-chafing boxer briefs, you'll want to look for materials that are moisture-wicking. This means materials that have two jobs.

This material will help keep you dry and avoid any rashes, keeping you comfortable all day long.


Fabric type is one of the most important aspects of finding the right underwear to prevent chafing. Some materials lock moisture in and prevent breathability, which will only cause further irritation. Modal is a breathable material that keeps you cool and keeps moisture at bay.

Long-leg boxer briefs are a wonderful option for preventing chafing because they offer total coverage. Chafing occurs between the thighs and groin and these boxer briefs cover these areas.


Having the right fit of boxer briefs is crucial to preventing rashes. If you have a pair of underwear that's restrictive and tight, this will keep moisture in and cause chafing. You want a stretchable fabric that hugs you just right without being too tight. Finding the right fit also includes the right length as we discussed previously. You want to find a pair of boxer briefs that covers the areas where chafing is most likely to occur.
