Open Up Your Wardrobe

Door Kelly Spears via Bandelettes


For centuries, skirts and dresses have been associated with sensuality and femininity. Sure, the urge to grab those basic pants sometimes wins, but there’s just something about pulling on a long Bohemian style or a figure-flatteirng pencil design that makes a woman look and feel beautiful.

If you’re anything like me, you most-likely have pieces in your wardrobe that never see the light of day. It’s not that they’re out of style (they’re not!); they simply pose a problem…

The Question: Do I wear pantyhose (ugh!), or do I simply skip the shape-wear and risk the inevitable reality that, not too far into my day, I’m going to have to deal with the dreaded chafing?

The Answer: I’m going to be honest here; prior to finding Bandelettes, I would have skipped the skirt altogether. But this discreet, pretty, and completely practical alternative to traditional hose have opened up my eyes…. and my wardrobe… to so many possibilities!

Because the attractive thigh bands stay put, you can place them where you would normally chafe, and voila! You can wear those skirts and dresses, and everyone will think you’ve splurged on a new outfit. Plus, when you don one of the lace designs, you’re adding an extra element of that feel-good vibe into your day. We all need a little more of that!

Don’t let the dreaded chafe keep you from showing off those beautiful clothes you’ve been hiding. You deserve to feel good! Your closet is the perfect place to start!

Dress Up Your Pear Shaped Figure With Bandelettes

                                 

Dressing up a pear shaped figure can be one of the most difficult body types to find attire for, but it can  also be one of the most stunning when styled right. Women with a pear shaped figure typically have small to medium measurements in the chest region while having a wider and curvier hip and thigh area. Here are some of our best tips on dressing up this particular shape to accentuate and enhance your gorgeous physique:

The idea is to give the illusion that your lower section is in proportion to your upper section. You can lengthen your silhouette by wearing things like long shirts, dusters, or jackets that hit mid thigh. This will draw attention away from the fact that you have wider hips. You also want to stay away from embellished or printed bottoms that draw the eye to your lower region.

If you prefer an hour glass figure, you can easily fake one by wearing a dress or top that is cinched in at the waist and flows freely at the bottom. Try wearing a pushup bra that has a little padding to give yourself a little extra oomph up top and you’ll have the perfect hourglass frame. If you want to show of your collarbone or cleavage a little more, try choosing a top that has a slightly lower neckline that will show off just the right amount of skin.

One of the main concerns for women who have a pair shaped figure is the thick thighs that come with it. Having curvier thighs can create a bit of rubbing when you walk or are active which ultimately leads to irritating rashes and bumps from the friction. That’s where Bandelettes come in! Wear them under any outfit or dress to get rid of the “chub rub” for good. Visit our Store to pick up your pair today.

5 Ways to Stop Thigh Chafing While Running

Woensdag 13 augustus 2015 ( text Bandelettes)

Chafing is the runner’s constant companion. No matter what the season, there’s always the risk of red, irritated, raw-feeling thighs (and that’s just one common area for runners). Some people are more prone to it than others — but fortunately, there’s no shortage of solutions to this dreaded issue. Start by staying hydrated while you run — not only is it important for your health, but salt crystals left behind when you stop sweating and the perspiration dries actually become an irritant.

There’s no one elegant solution to thigh chafing, as it’s a highly personal choice. But we’ve put together some of the best options to stop the irritation of your thighs rubbing together while running.

1. Proper Clothing

All too often, running clothes are at least part of the problem when it comes to irritated thighs. Seams on shorts can rub up against skin and exacerbate the issue. If your running shorts are the culprit, try switching to another pair, one that’s a bit longer. As an alternative, you can try wearing a pair of compression shorts, which tend to be a bit longer, under your running shorts.

Material choice is important, too: Cotton shorts are a bad idea, because once they’re wet, they stay wet. Synthetic fabrics with moisture-wicking properties, such as Lycra or Spandex, are a much, much better option.

2. Lubricants, Gels, and Balms

Chaffing on the thigh from a trail run

A gel-like lubricant on your thighs can ease friction and reduce chafing while running. Petroleum jelly is an inexpensive, widely available option that works well, but you can also find more specialized products for runners, including BodyGlide, Run-Goo (and its sibling product Hike-goo), as well as Red11 (originally meant for nipple chafing, it can also be used on thighs). This can be a slightly messier solution than other alternatives

3. Powder

If gels and lubricants aren’t to your preference, some powder products can also stop thighs from chafing during your run. Baby powder (or talcum powder) is a simple no-frills option. More specialized products include Lush’s Silky Underwear or Anti-Monkey Butt powder, which also has a ladies’ variant.

4. Bandelettes

Men

Our unisex Bandelettes are a great option to prevent thigh chafing while running. Made from a soft synthetic microfiber, they are specially designed to prevent skin irritation caused by the friction of skin on skin or even skin on fabric. Bandelettes won’t slide down your thighs thanks to nonslip silicone. They only cover the area that needs to be covered, making them a more comfortable, breathable option, especially in warm weather. Unisex bandelettes area available in either black or beige, in a variety of sizes.

5. Proper After-Care

Taking care of your legs after a run will also help minimize your discomfort. Start by showering as soon as possible, in lukewarm water. Hot water and chafed thighs is just a recipe for pain! Pat your skin dry — don’t rub — to minimize irritation. And then be sure to follow up by moisturizing your skin with a good lotion, coconut oil or shea butter. If you are dealing with raw, irritated skin, skip the moisturizing step and instead go for a diaper rash cream like Desitin or A+D Zinc Oxide cream. It sounds crazy, but the active ingredient is zinc oxide, which makes it antibacterial as well as soothing.

Who Can Wear Bandelettes?

zaterdag 27 juni 2015 (text Amber Norell, Bandelettes)

The assumption that Bandelettes are just for plus sized ladies and gentlemen couldn’t be further from the truth. Believe it or not, our top selling sizes are “B” and “C” meaning that the majority of our customers range from a size 4 to a size 12. Chances are, if you aren’t part of the very small percentage of the population with a thigh gap you have probably suffered from uncomfortable chafing between your thighs.

This chafing is especially apparent when you are wearing shorts or a dress and are engaging in vigorous exercise or walking for long periods of time. This chafing is caused from the friction of your legs rubbing together which can lead to dryness, ingrown hairs, redness, and unpleasant irritation. For those of you who deal with this often, you know that the more you continue to create that friction, the worse the chafing and irritation becomes.

That’s where Bandelettes come in.

They protect your inner thighs from rubbing against one another to eliminate chafing and irritation. This is why Bandelettes have also become a huge hit among athletic, fashion-forward men. They look great under gym shorts and provide a buffer along the inner thighs when you are active or playing sports.

Bandelettes were designed with fashion and  functionality in mind. They comfortably conform to your legs so that you don’t have to worry about them riding up or down and they are offered in a range of great colors and fabrics. They even come in a unisex option which is great for athletic gals and also allows men to wear them with confidence and ease. You will definitely look and feel great wearing Bandelettes.
