Summer is meant for twirling around in the park, strutting down the boardwalk, and wandering through new streets in pretty dresses and skirts. But how can you look cute and live your life to the max if the skin on your thighs keeps rubbing against itself? The simple answer: Boody’s anti-chafing Smoothing Shorts, which are on sale for under $20 through June 22.

Sure, any old pair of spandex shorts could work to prevent chafing, but Boody’s Smoothing Shorts offer so much more. They’re 79% viscose, 15% nylon, and 6% elastane viscose fiber made from bamboo. The brand is known for making bamboo clothing and underwear, but what exactly does that mean? Boody’s bamboo viscose gets softer with wear and wash. It’s also breathable, moisture-wicking, non-toxic, and good for the environment.

The material sounds like a dream for summer, but you might be wondering how the Smoothing Shorts feel on the body. They’re lightweight, comfortable, and almost like a second skin (similar to the Boody bralette Billie Eilish wore on the Grammys red carpet!). The shorts are also meant to sit right above your waistline and on the upper thigh, providing full coverage and an ultra-flattering, high-waist fit.

Whether you’re sporting a cute summer dress or an on-trend maxi skirt, you won’t have to stress over thigh chafing or sweating through your clothes. There’s also no need to worry about the shorts rolling down, as many shoppers have flocked to the reviews section to applaud the garment’s ability to stay put.

“Very comfy, stays in place, and tucks everything nicely,” commented one shopper. 

“I’m 5’4″, long-waisted, athletic but lean, but am too old to worry about dresses flying up or riding up on public transportation seats during travel. I also have a lifelong battle with underwear lines because of my hip/waist shape,” wrote another five-star reviewer. “Most women’s long briefs either ride up or if they don’t, they leave a line in my thighs/visible through pants. These are smooth, fit beautifully, and were instantly cooling on a humid day.”

“Love this smoothing short. Cool, comfy, and allows me to wear a dress comfortably in hot climates without uncomfortable chafing. Love this product,” raved another wearer.

These shoppers are clearly onto something with Boody’s Smoothing Shorts. Coming in sizes XS through 4XL and in three color options (black, white, and nude), stock up on these summer life savers for 20% off. The brand’s Design Room Sale runs through June 22 and offers discounts of up to 50% on almost everything, so here are a few more options to order before the deals disappear.
