9 painful struggles every girl who gets chub rub must face

The BURNING.

FOR MANY GALS, summery clothing (not that we’re getting to wear it much these days) means just one thing: Chub rub.

If you’re not already acquainted – lucky you – chub rub is when your thighs touch together while you walk, causing painful friction. It is no picnic.

1. Chub rub is one of the few reasons we dread summer

Well, along with the constant shaving. Bare legs + warm weather = maximum discomfort.

2. And that’s because it really f**king hurts

No joke! You could cook an egg on our thighs at the end of a day of chub rub. Burning.

3. AND makes us never want to wear dresses, ever

Who are these women rambling about carefree in floaty sundresses? How do they do it?

4. We’ve all done the duck walk to stop our thighs from touching

Actual footage of said walk:

5. And examined our red raw legs, aghast

Your legs look like you’ve been hiking in a forest for days, but really you just rambled around the shops for an hour.

6. Wearing biker shorts under everything is but an impossible dream

But fail safe, if your outfit permits.

7. So you can be seen at all times smearing cream deodorant on yourself

It’s worth it for thighs that GLIDE.

8. We may have lost countless pairs of jeans to it

Oh yes- it even strikes when you’re wearing clothes. There’s no escape!

9. But it’s comforting to remember that it can happen to anyone

Here’s Amy Schumer lubing herself up with deodorant before the Met Gala this year:
