Workout shorts have got a lot going for them. They’re generally cute, comfortable, and keep your legs from feeling like they’re trapped in a set of heavy leggings during a warm-weather workout. But there’s one problem: With the combination of sweat, movement, and exposed skin, chafing is pretty much inevitable. That is, unless you’ve got the right pair.
When choosing a chafe-free style, you’ll want to look for a few different elements that will help prevent any uncomfy thigh-to-thigh contact. They have to be long enough to cover your skin, sweat-wicking so that they don’t cause irritation, and made from super-soft materials that won’t rub. To help you find a pair that checks all three boxes, we rounded up the best anti-chafe shorts money can buy. Shop our picks below, and prepare for a thigh-happy summer, ahead.
