The Sticky Warm Weather Secret
MY SISTER-IN-LAW BEGGED ME TO SHARE
Do you dream of sunshine, sand and sandals? Painted toes, pina colada’s and… PAIN – from your sticky, naked thighs rubbing together?
Ok, minus the PAIN part. Let me explain…
To celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and my brother-in-law and his wife, Brenda’s 25th anniversary – we took an 18 day adventure to Thailand. It was really AMAZING!! (get this…I used CARRY-ON ONLY – ya, I sure did!! I’ll share those tricks in a future article).
It was HOT, HUMID, SWEATY and STICKY every day. Ahhhhh, glorious!
Brenda and I packed skirts, a dress or two, tank tops – you get it, typical warm weather stuff, right? After our first few days in Bangkok, Brenda complained of a prickly, painful rash between her thighs.
Now, here’s the thing – I had encouraged her to pack skirts – and ditch shorts. OF course I did!! They transition from daytime to dinnertime effortlessly, they make a versatile bathing suit cover-up, AND they look great!
But now she was walking like she had ridden an elephant from Bangkok to Chang Mai (a loooooong way!)
Here’s the secret she begged me to share…
“Bren, don’t you have a bike short shaper on?”
I asked as I pulled my skirt up over my head to proudly show her mine.
“Les! Why didn’t you TELL me about those BEFORE?” Yikes. I had to do some swift back peddling here.
I seriously didn’t even give it a thought!
I wear a bike short shaper ALL THE TIME. Really. Under dress pants, skirts, dresses, leggings – everything.
And not just in hot weather. All THE TIME, at home too. And THIS is why Brenda begged me to share my secret with you. (Although I didn’t realize it was a secret!)
