No Chub Rub, No Problem.

Hi there everyone!

I'm very sorry for the non posting that has been happening on this site. I've got a lot of stuff to take care of, and unfortunately blogging has slipped to the back burner for now, but I have been very active on my facebook and twitter accounts so please keep checking there for updates and interesting conversations.

Nontheless, I am here to share nice things with you!

As some of you who follow my facebook page might already know,  I have been testing a anti-chub rub product called Bandelettes.

There is nothing worse than feeling over layered and suffocated with bike shorts under a skirt or dress in the hot hot summer heat. Or leaving little crumbs of baby powder behind as you walk, it might be helpful if you get lost in the woods, but it probably isn't very stylish in the city or very comfortable in the heat, so lets just leave the navigation to our maps and smartphones.

This is where Bandelettes come in, they only go around your upper thigh and are made out of thin lace so your skin can breathe. They are a few inches wider than the top of knee highs and they have a silicone lining on the top and bottom to prevent slipping.  They are prettey much invisible underneath your clothes and even if they aren't, they look sexy and fun.

I did have a slight problem with the sizing when I orderd them. The actual size for my thighs was too small, even though I measured my thighs correctly a few times before sending in my order, but the nice people at Bandelettes were kind enough to send me a bigger pair to test out, which ended up fitting really well. I wore them all day with minor - to no complaints. Just once after having them on all day, the lace stretched out around my leg causing my skin to peek out from between the lace which caused uncomfortable rubbing, but a super quick adjustment fixed the problem completely and I could go on like it never happened. I guess another sort of non lacey fabric could prevent that, but lace is sexy and we love that. The best part is, they ship to Austria! well pretty much everywhere in Europe! Hurrah for that!

I do love this product and I think it is a great idea, and I do recommend it to anyone who seeks chub rub relief this summer. I will definitely wear mine whenever I get the chance.

No Bandelettes in sight......

Still no Bandelettes in sight....

OH, what's this, a slight clue of a Bandelette! :) 

The company wanted me to inform all international buyers to please check their countries customs office to find out what and if there are any additional costs with the shipping, because import duties and taxes are not included in the item price or shipping cost. HINT: It would be a good idea to order them one at a time instead of a few at once.

Thanks to Bandelettes for letting me test and review this product! Make sure to get a pair of your own.

Over and out,

Anita Riot

It looks good. I usually put sun cream on my tights if I think it's gonna rub (now, sun cream is expensive!)
Anyway, it's great and pretty. I prefer the black ones. I just don't know how comfortable those would be if you're running. Also summer is gone :)
