We are now less than a week away from the 2018 TCFStyle Expo! We hope you are ready because this year is going to be amazing! Panels, Performances, and Fashion. It’s our fourth year, and we are getting better and better every time. The expo is going to be in Hotlanta, and you know what that means Chubrub season in full effect. No worries though because you are going to love 2018 TCFstyle Expo Sponsor, Thigh Society!
Because we take our thighs very seriously, we spoke to Thigh Society founder, Marnie Consky and her team about the brand, their philosophy and of course, chubrub! Join us as we welcome the anti-chafing experts of Thigh Society to the Expo!
What is the story behind Thigh Society?
I’ve always loved wearing breezy skirts and dresses, especially in the summer – but with the heat and humidity, my thighs would rub together, and the resulting fiery rash was unbearable. In the summer of 2008, I decided that I was tired of cutting my tights and leggings, wearing bike shorts and men’s boxer briefs, and I was done squeezing into suffocating shapewear and hosiery to get some fabric coverage on my thighs. Powders, creams, and gels helped for 10 minutes but needed to be carried around and re-applied regularly throughout the day. I knew there HAD to be a better solution. I scoured the internet, local boutiques, and department stores for months looking for seamless long leg underwear that were breathable, wicking and wouldn’t squeeze me in like a sausage. I posted in online forums looking for help, and no one could suggest any good alternatives. So I set out to develop my own – and that’s how Thigh Society came to be.
Why this focus?
I didn’t like the implication of the big brands that women need to wear gut-wrenching (literally!) undergarments to look and feel beautiful. Nope, not having it. A woman should have the option to wear what she wants in comfort, whether she’s looking for modesty or thigh chafing protection. Shapewear doesn’t need to be the default.
How do you think the plus size industry has grown over the years?
It’s been great to watch the industry grow, especially straight-sized companies who have started to expand their size range and feature (so-called) plus models in their marketing. But I still think there’s a long way to go regarding showing more variety in size, body types, and diversity.
What can the attendees of the TCFStyle Expo look forward to seeing from you?
We base our product development on customer feedback, and are working on some new slip shorts to add to our existing line that we’ll be launching in the Fall. While many customers love our products for anti-chafing in hot weather, they can also be worn year-round with tights/pantyhose to extend hosiery life, for an extra layer of warmth in Winter, light exercise, or just lounging around at home.
We are so excited to have Thigh Society partner up with us sponsoring the 2018 TCFStyle Expo. Are you ready for the TCFStyle Expo? Tickets are on sale now!
