Fatty Hack #374
But like fuck I’m going to let chub rub dictate my life. This is a fairly strict No Pants Zone, and I’ve adopted certain ways of making this possible. There are sticks (I’m partial to Secret Shield; there’s also deodorant and anti-chaffing sticks marketed to athletes). There are powders (or just plain corn starch from the grocery store). There are undergarments (I have some bike shorts from Walmart that are meh, but there are other bike short options and shapewear like spanx can work too).
Sometimes these are just not enough. When I’m walking around without a stick, bike shorts or powder, and chub rub has already made its presence known, I break out the skirt tuck.
Isn’t the skirt pretty? Thanks! I made it myself.
1) This is awesome
2) Fat hacks should be a zine. Please. I will help.
3) Woman Within makes these AMAZING bike shorts that are incredibly comfy, don’t ride up, come in a pretty wide color selection, and go up to a size 5x (38w-40w). Plus they’re relatively cheap, last pretty long, wash well, and the site gives out coupons regularly through their email list. I wear shorts under all my skirts (remnants of the decade and a half of catholic school), even when the skirt is shorter than the shorts and these are my go-to.
