The summer season seems to have seen the purchase of more floaty skirts and dresses than any other, with thousands of us filling our wardrobes with must-have midi dresses and silky satin skirts.
But while they look beautiful, there’s one issue that often befalls you when you choose them: chafing. It happens to the best of us, and is quite frankly almost impossible to avoid during the extreme heatwave we’re experiencing in the UK right now. Or at least that’s what we thought – until we heard of Marks & Spencer’s new launch.
The British retail giant has come to save us all with their new pair of easy, breezy culottes. Designed to wear under your maxi dress or skirt, the shorts feature M&S’s impressive Cool Comfort technology, to help you stay sweat free between your thighs by preventing them from rubbing against each other – all while maintaining a streamlined silhouette.
The culottes are available in both an almond shade and in black and are priced at £18 each. According to the brand, they are ‘designed to flatter your figure in a discreet and seamless manner’ and are made with lightweight fabric than comes with added stretch for easy movement.
The product has already received tons of rave reviews on the M&S websites, with happy customer’s praising how effective the shorts are in preventing chafing.
‘Just what I was looking for and perfect under summer dresses,’ wrote one reviewer. ‘The Cool Comfort technology really does the job and these culottes feel soft and silky. I read other reviews and, as advised by others, bought a size smaller than normal which are perfect for me.’
Similarly, another wrote: ‘These are great, better than a slip during all this hot weather. No more chafing!’ while a third customer wrote: ‘I use these for summer dresses – fantastic! Have cut one leg shorter so I can wear it with a dress that has a slit.’
The culottes are currently available on the M&S website in a variety of sizes. We’re planning on getting a pair for every day of the week.
