Love Your Thighs Day is observed annually on the fourth Thursday of April, which falls on April 27 this year. Everywhere in the world, women have a love-hate relationship with their bodies. In a society where beauty standards have been predetermined and are often unattainable, they are continually encouraged to love their bodies. Love Your Thighs Day aims to combat this by reminding women everywhere that their bodies are theirs to venerate, regardless of their physical appearance.
The background of Love Your Thighs Day
Love Your Thighs Day was established to honour women everywhere. It promotes self-love among women of all sizes and kicks off thigh-chafing season, allowing women to feel confident and prepared for the upcoming spring and summer. Over the years, women have been encouraged to feel confident in their bodies and to disregard the beauty standards established by the beauty industry.
Bandelettes is one of the companies that consistently supports this cause. Rena Abramoff and Julia Abasova founded the company in 2013 based on their personal experiences and frustrations with thigh irritation. Bandelettes are lace-based thigh bands with two strips of non-slip silicone to hold each band in place on the upper thigh and prevent painful inner thigh chafing.
Bandelettes have become a fashion mainstay for women of all sizes to prevent thigh chafing since the company’s establishment. Bandelettes are sold nationwide at Lane Bryant and are worn under skirts and dresses by women with no thigh gap to prevent uncomfortable and excruciating friction. The company has been featured on “The Today Show” and made its runway debut with Chromat at New York Fashion Week in 2017.
The purpose of Love Your Thighs Day is to honour women and encourage them to appreciate their bodies, particularly their thighs. Spreading positivity should be done by everyone, not just a select few groups.

5 TYPES OF UNDERWEAR EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
They are exceptionally comfortable and are inspired by men’s boxers.
These are standard pants purchased in packs of three or five.
They prioritise utility and comfort and feature a snug elastic waistband to keep your midriff in place.
In addition to being extremely seductive, they are the ideal knickers to wear with outfits where the bump of a panty line would spoil the look.
They have a high leg hole cut, which makes them better for circulation than regular socks and pairs well with trousers with a high waist.
