Twitter is already obsessed with the Snag Chub Rub shorts, and they're a hit among fellow mermaid-thigh women. One Twitter user asked, "Ladies out there with mermaid thighs (thighs that touch), what do you use in summer to avoid the dreaded chafe when you’re not wearing pants?" Someone replied, "Just bought Snag tights chub rub shorts and adore them - they’re the same weight as pantyhose so don’t really feel like an extra layer. If you don’t want shorts, bodyglide or men’s stick deodorant work best for me."
