Bare-leg season is upon us, which, for some of us, stirs up a deep dread in the pit of our stomachs.

We love a floral dress or a midi as much as the next person. We enjoy wearing them while strolling through parks and sipping rosé with our friends at actual pubs, but there's one part of it all that we don't love: chafing.

Which is likely why these Tessa Light Control Thigh Slimmer Shorts are selling so well at John Lewis right now.

Did we mention, they're 20% off right now?

Why we rate them:

Not only do they prevent chafing, these also help to create a flattering shape, without leaving us feeling restricted. 

They're seam-free, so go unnoticed under figure skimming outfits, and are high-waisted so you needn't worry about them creating lines around your midriff or falling down as the day goes on. 

Wearing them means the only thing you need worry about when you're out and about is where your next pint is coming from. 

While they may be new to the site, the shorts are already getting complimentary reviews and currently have five star ratings across the board.

"I find these support shorts are really comfortable to wear while, at the same time, they give me just the right amount of light support that I wanted," said one customer. 

While another added: "Great for avoiding chafing! True to size and comfortable material, these are essential under dresses in the summer."

The shorts are available in a nude almond, as well as black so there is a pair to go with whatever summer dress you choose.
