Great quality. Great design
Shipped & arrived quickly. Great quality. Great design. I'm 5'6", 217lbs and carry a majority of my weight in my butt and thighs. I got the largest size and they fit perfectly. They could of stretched a little further as well. I wore them out to dinner and they worked like a charm, I wasn't uncomfortable at all. I was hesitant because I was worried that they would fall (that would of been mortifying) but they truly stayed in place all night. I highly recommend these for any lady who gets the chub rub, especially in the summer! I intend on taking them on vacation with me because they worked so well!

Best thing youll ever have between your legs
I don't care how big you think your thighs are, or what your measuring tape says about you...order in a size down.
Yes.. I'm looking at you, gorgeous.

Saved my life!
These things literally saved my life at EDC! Going to music festivals and raves where the typical fashion involves little to no pants/shorts is hard for us bigger girls. I used these to create my own leg wraps and Its amazing what just a little fabric can do for the chub rub! They never even slob down a little!

These worked like a charm for me. I used the size chart and ordered the size specified and they fit perfectly. They stayed in place all night long, through walking, sitting, standing, and lots of dancing. They were cool and comfortable the whole time. I used to always wear shorts that rolled and bunched up on my thighs and also created unsightly lines. This product solved all those issues! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product to anyone, and I plan to buy more.

sometimes like they are even falling off
Found these after a buzzfeed article which featured the product. I was skeptical, but they worked so well. They have a rubber lining on the top and bottom to stay in place against your skin. I would make sure that you accurately measure your legs to make sure you have the right size. I could see these not working if you do not find the proper fit. I will say that if you have a booty, they will sit a bit lower on the back of your leg, as they will roll if you pull them up too high. They feel strange, sometimes like they are even falling off. But I found they stayed in place all night and I didn't have to worry about them. Prevented my legs rubbing together perfectly. I was not super active in these, so I do not know how they would do with higher impact movements (like dancing). But walking around in them was perfect. I am so excited I found these!

Thick-thighed girls, fear no more!
I wore these to my college graduations under my dress. I've always been thicker-thighed, regardless of how in shape I am, and thigh-chaffing has always been a problem for me. With graduation being on a hot day in a crowded auditorium, I was in desperate need of something to stop the chaffing. Lo and behold, my bandelettes did the trick! I was able to make my way across the stage and accept my diploma without doing that weird "cowboy walk" to keep my thighs from sticking, while not worrying about them showing from under my dress. I have very short legs and wore a short dress, and the bandelettes weren't noticeable at all. They didn't move on me at all either for the entire 5 hours I wore them. I didn't have to worry about readjusting or yanking them up. Most of the time, I forgot they were even there.
I'm very happy I bought the lacey pair (for my graduation dress) and the plain black ones. My thighs tend to bleed when I go running in the summer from the chaffing, and it hurts like none other. I wear them under my shorts to the gym now and don't have to worry about the constant sticking and chaffing. Whoever invented these needs an award.

Summer comfort at last!
I'm definitely not a small woman (size 18/20 top & bottom), but my legs are relatively slim. I measured carefully and ordered a size B. They fit perfectly. The right band was rolling a little bit on top, but I read that moving the Bandelette down a little would help...and it did. I love them! I used to wear my tennis ball shorts under skirts and dresses, but that often got too hot during humid Maryland summers. I am so glad I tried Bandelettes. They are thoughtfully made, soft, pretty and fit well. I will definitely order more and recommend them to my friends who might also suffer from "chub rub!"

)They are really thin material and look like something that's going to suck
I decided to review these because I was really, really skeptical that they would work before I bought them. (I bought the nude-colored "athletic" variety.)They are really thin material and look like something that's going to suck, honestly. But! I was so surprised that, after a little wiggling and adjusting to get them in just the right spot, these things stay exactly where they're supposed to and haven't ended up around my ankles. :P Trust the others who say to order a size smaller than you need or a size down if you're in between.
The placement is very important; you have to get them in the right spot or else they will roll down/up somewhat. (For me, it's like right up under the 'butt flap.' :P ) However, once they're in place, they don't go anywhere. I've even put on my usual coconut oil moisturizer and then slipped these on immediately and they still stay just fine. I've even worn these under uncomfortable tights just to avoid chafing and they still laid flat and worked just fine! They're so thin that once they're on, they basically disappear. Good stuff! Really, really comfortable! I will buy another pair.

The Angelic Armbands of Kevin Sorbo: Bandelettes Are Magical
Picture an angel. Actually, picture Kevin Sorbo circa 1998--you know, when he was Hercules and his arms were huge and muscular. Got it? Okay, imagine that he wore pretty lace armbands that were imbued with magic. Then imagine that he gifted them to the mortals. This was the dawning of the Age of Bandelettes. In all seriousness, these things are WONDERFUL. I didn't think that they'd ever stay up--my thighs are definitely wider at the top and taper down. Thigh-highs never stay up on me, but these things do. While they might require one to two adjustments in a day, I can comfortably wear these all day long. I bought the nude unisex pair at first, then these black ones, and then a pair of red ones. They all work great. I work in an office and have an aversion to pants, so I wear skirts and dresses most of the time. In the Virginia August heat, you bet your biscuit that I'm wearing these things almost every day to beat the enemy known as chub-rub! To keep mine nice, I usually just wash them in a sink of warm water with a few drops of Woolite. I've used hotel shampoo in a pinch, and that worked fine, too. A few tips: 1) Make sure you wear the seams on the OUTSIDE. 2) Colors. Know that your red bandelettes will show through a white skirt. Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything...3) Confidence. Wear these to a job interview. They'll make you feel sexy and confident, and I'm not saying that bandelettes got me my job, but they definitely helped me feel my best during the interview.
