Default Chub Rub: the Destroyer of Pants

Today I write to you with some sad news. My favorite pair of work pants is on it's last legs. There's an ever-widening whole forming where the fullest part of my thighs rub together, and it won't be too long before they're not appropriate to wear to work anymore.
Is there a way to keep this from happening, or to slow it down? I'd really like to somehow fix these because they make my butt and hips look great, and buying new pants all the time is getting a little expensive.
I've tried those iron-on patches on jeans before, but they don't really last that long in my experience.

I have this happen all the time. One time I successfully patched the area by taking another pair of jeans and sewed them as a patch over the area. I will say though that I only wore them at home after that. I patched them because I loved how they felt when I wore them. So not really successful in keeping them as work pants. Nothing else I have ever done has worked.

You could try support hose or shorts. Jockey makes slip shorts that are pretty comfortable. They don't completely prevent it, but they do slow it down. They're not terribly expensive either, about $25. Hope this helps

I've done that with jeans when I worked outside a lot, but like you I never wore them out and about after that. Someone needs to come up with some reinforced thigh pants... (And while they're at it, add on some decent pockets :P )
I've blown out belt loops too, using them to pull my jeans over my hips. Those are a little easier to fix, thank goodness.

Oh, I never thought of that. I do have a pair of spanx-type shorts, and a whole bunch of hose tucked away in my closet somewhere. Maybe I'll try one of those on my next easy day and see how it feels. Can't hurt...

Amy Jo's hint is a good one.

Two more tricks taught me from my grandmother who was an artisan master tailoress.

1) As long as it is only thinning, sew a patch of similar, but heavy duty material (no knit qualities, no pure wool, jeans or strong polyester-blend are best) against it from the inside.
Stitch back-and-forth with the sewing machine in rows with a narrow zig-zag-stitch.

Can last for years if you find a good cloth patch underneath - and looks as good as new.


2) If the pants already have holes - cut out the torn part and insert a gusset.

This works best of course with neutral colors and materials where you can find a good match for making the gusset. Or if pants are too long when you buy then, always keep the part you cut off as emergency patch. (If it is a thin or fine cloth quality, double it up with something more durable to make mending worthwhile.)

Just like a good pair of shoes, our favorite pants don't last as long as we wish they did. I buy two of something when I like it so I"ll have it longer. (Is that weird? LOL)

No that is actually a smart thing to do.
