I believe every woman’s body is beautiful in its own way. I have never understood that just because a woman has thick thighs, she is considered fat. For so long, I’ve been around in the modeling world and have tried to break that barrier. But I think now it’s turning around.Coco Austin
The beauty industry is known for its selective choices in what qualifies as beautiful. As that definition of beauty is changing in mainstream media, women all over the world are learning to love themselves and see the beautiful parts of their body. Love Your Thighs Day is specifically a day dedicated to learning to love your thighs no matter what they look like.
History of Love Your Thighs Day
Love Your Thighs Day is a day to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes, and to kick off thigh chafing season so women everywhere can feel confident and be ready to take on the hot spring and summer months ahead! One company that helps women feel more confident with their thighs is Bandelettes.
Launched in 2013 by Rena Abramoff and Julia Abasova, Bandelettes are lace thigh bands that feature two strips of non-slip silicone to help keep each band positioned on the upper thigh to prevent painful inner thigh chafing.
Rena and Julia started their business just a few years ago out of their own personal experiences and frustrations with thigh chafing, but the company has quickly grown and Bandelettes have become a fashion staple for women of all shapes and sizes to prevent painful thigh chafing.
Bandelettes can be worn under skirts and dresses to prevent that uncomfortable and painful friction for women with no thigh gap. Bandelettes are now sold nationwide at Lane Bryant, have been featured on The TODAY Show, and recently completed their third NYFW runway show with Chromat.
While that is one company aimed at helping women love their thighs, Love Your Thighs Day is a day to celebrate your thighs and spread body positivity and there are many people all over aiming to help women love themselves little by little, starting by the shape of their thighs.
How to celebrate Love Your Thighs Day
If you’re curious about how to celebrate Love Your Thigh Day, start by giving yourself a love mantra you and your friends can say. Love mantras work great against fighting against the negativity from the media or negativity in general.

If you still don’t love your thighs, then change the way your thighs look by going to a gym, partnering with your friends, and make workouts fun by turning it into a positive experience.
