Brilliant for the dreaded thigh rub!’ raved one fan. ‘Ordered this item as I have not worn dresses for years because of the dreaded thigh rub which can be so painful.

‘These pants are excellent, lovely and light weight, fit beautifully’.

‘Great for summer,’ added another. ‘Love these shorts. They feel great under dresses and skirts.

‘Not designed to be overly slimming but they make you feel secure and eliminate thigh chafing. Would recommend’.

‘A must for wearing with skirts and dresses,’ wrote another customer. ‘I bought it so my thighs don’t rub together in summer.

‘It is very comfortable and tucks you in without being too constricting. Very happy with my purchase’.

‘Super comfortable,’ commented another, ‘These are so soft and so easy to put on! (No more broken nails).

‘They are also very light and do not make you sweat. Would throughly recommend’.

Another pointed out how smoothing they are when wearing trousers, adding, ‘Wore these under smart trousers to flatten out the knicker line and smooth where my vest top ended. Perfect solution’.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
