Summer is here and with the warmer weather some of us experiencing (dare we say it) a little discomfort, as our thighs are rubbing together, or sticking while we sleep.

We have recently recommended a pair of anti-chafe shorts to make things a little more bearable, but for those who don't want to wear an extra layer on hot days, we have an alternative solution. 

Cue the Anti-Chafing Bands, proving to be a huge hit with shoppers who are adding the nifty design to their baskets as we speak. 

Why we rate them

The Anti-Chafing Bands are super-simple and easy to wear. All you have to do is slip one on each thigh and position where necessary to avoid any rubbing or soreness. 

One reason why we love them so much is because you can target specific areas which are more sensitive or need more coverage, whereas some shorts may fall too short. 

John Lewis' designs are made from a polyamide and elastane blend and have a 15 denier, which means they're super stretchy for the wearer's comfort, but also sheer and lightweight to avoid causing more irritation. 

They also feature an anti slip design, so you can be sure they'll stay in place all day long, while still providing protection against any irritation.

They come in two colours, black and nude, both of which are available in sizes small to extra large. 

The best part, is they're super affordable at just £8. 

Whether you slide on under summer dresses or skirts for work, picnics in the park or weddings, or even underneath jeans, they're a subtle protection to make you feel comfortable.

The 15 Denier Anti-Chafing Bands are selling fast, according to John Lewis. 

One happy customer shared: "Really comfortable and discreet. Perfect in hot weather", while another enthused: "These bands are soft, delicate, easy to use and wear. The material is really comfortable and very good quality."
