Preventing skin marks from clothing

Hi costume and wardrobe people! I'm in a short film in a few weeks, low budget, where I need to remove clothing to reveal underwear. Problem is, I get those red crease marks on my skin from jeans etc (part of the wardrobe) and it looks gross. Any tips on preventing it? A MUA suggested foam strips inside the jeans, but so far, while it works, you can kind of see it. Thanks!

Unfortunately, those red marks are part of wearing clothing. There are ways of getting around them, but they involve changing the shooting order so that you actually spend as little time in costume as possible or touch up in post production. Is it the director who has an issue with the marks or do they just throw you off your game?
