Love Your Thighs Day is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of April every year, and this year, it falls on April 27. Women all over the world have a love-hate relationship with their bodies. They are constantly encouraged to love their bodies in a society where beauty standards have been predefined and sometimes are unreachable. Love Your Thighs Day seeks to mitigate this and tell all women around the world that no matter what their bodies look like, they should love them because it’s theirs to cherish.
History of Love Your Thighs Day
Love Your Thighs Day was created to celebrate all women around the world. It promotes self-love among women of all shapes and sizes and serves to kick off the thigh-chafing season so women feel confident and ready for the coming spring and summer. Over the years, women have received support to feel confident in their bodies and thrash the standards set by the beauty industry on what is considered beautiful.
One of the companies that continually support this cause is Bandelettes. The company was launched in 2013 by Rena Abramoff and Julia Abasova after their personal experiences and frustrations with thigh chafing. Bandelettes are thigh bands made of lace material that have two strips of non-slip silicone to help keep each band on the upper thigh to prevent painful inner thigh chafing.
Since its establishment, the company has quickly grown, and Bandelettes has become a fashion staple for women of all shapes and sizes to prevent thigh chafing. Bandelettes are worn under skirts and dresses to prevent uncomfortable and painful friction for women with no thigh gap and are sold nationwide at Lane Bryant. The company has been featured on “The Today Show” and debuted in the New York Fashion Week runway show with Chromat in 2017.
Love Your Thighs Day is to celebrate women and encourage them to love their bodies, especially their thighs. Spreading positivity shouldn’t be done only by a select few groups but by all.
