More and more people seem to be wearing bicycle shorts under their short dresses, but have you ever wondered why that might be?
There’s nothing worse than experiencing chafe when you’re totally feeling your outfit and your short dress, and one of the main reasons why everyone is wearing bike shorts under their dresses is for this reason exactly. Creating a protective layer between your skin can be the difference between a fun-filled afternoon and hobbling back home an hour after you leave the house because the chafe is real.
Although it was once pretty strange to wear shorts under your dress, we’re here to tell you that it’s now pretty cool.
