Marks & Spencer's anti-chafing shorts are back on shelves - just in time for this week's heatwave!

In times of uncertainty it’s a relief to know that there are some things we can still rely on.

With a mini heatwave expected, many women this week will face the unpleasant sensation of sweaty thigh-chafe –an experience we can all do without in hot weather.

Fortunately, M&S is working hard to ease the pain with its lightweight Cool Comfort Anti-chafing Shorts.

Just £12 a pair and rated an impressive 4.5 stars on the retailer’s website, these shorts not only offer a 'smooth and fuss-free finish' they prevent chafing, are comfortable, seamless and, perhaps most importantly, come with cooling technology to help prevent us overheating in the sun.

In fact, these anti-chafing shorts have proved so popular they were out of stock until recently, so don’t take any chances and grab yours while you can.

The high-waisted undergarment helps hold the stomach in place so you can wear your favourite summer dress or skirt without any concerns of ‘over-hang’.

'Fine fabric and great under dresses and skirts,' wrote one customer while another added, 'Kept me cool, stopped my inner thighs from getting hot and rubbing together, easy to pull on and off, good quality material as I thought I would snag them like tights and didn’t.'

'I’m absolutely chuffed with these shorts, so soft and comfortable,' added another fan. 'I know there not meant to be slimming shorts but they do seem to shape my bum and tummy nicely without being really tight.'
