new to running..underwear?
The running shorts with built in underwear are good. They don't rub the skin raw like panties do. If you opt to wear panties under these shorts, something NON-cotton will be your best bet.0
Just ditch 'em whilst exercising. Lotsa "exercising" clothes have built in liners and such now.
Much more comfy to move w/out that extra layer.0
Thanks for all the suggestions and opinions. I think I am going to try commando. I don't want to go spend money on stuff when all I have to do is take them off. Lol. I hate thongs but I like the no lines so commando is really what I will try.0
Moving Comfort has a line of athletic underwear. I will NEVER wear cotton again after these. I like the bikini style, they stay in place, keep you dry. Under armor also carries thongs. I have a couple. But some people prefer not to work out in a thong, depends on your preference. I would avoid the boy short style of underwear as they don't stay in place.0
I just wear spandex knee length pants... I wear them for an hour and they have to be washed anyway.. no panties!!!!0
Personally, I love to wear boyshorts and yoga underwear that come from Victoria Secret's PINK selection. My problem is that my underwear likes to ride UP as I run though (big butt problems lol), so your case may be different. Maybe try hipsters or cheekies if boyshorts don't work.0

I never thought about that!!! Maybe I'll try this too! lol0
Let'em be free!0
I wear boring bikini briefs from Hanes. I almost never have an issue with them.
I will say some running pants often are the culprit not the underwear. I have retired some running capris before because they won't stay up or they always ride up.0
In all honesty, I don't wear underwear while running. I wear dance shorts or yoga pants lol. Sometimes, I'll even just throw on a skirt or something over my tights and leo0
Do your pants fall down too? I haven't had a problem with my underwear specifically but I have had plenty of problems with my pants falling down, I think its all the up/down jiggle of my butt makes them work their way south. I either get really high waisted pants w/ a thick elastic waist OR I get pants w/ a draw string. As for underwear I wear any and everything, nothing special. Although anything with lace around the legs is a no no, and cotton on hot days or long runs is no good....0
Skip the underwear.0
Trust me, this is the most comfortable:
With Spandex- none.
With lined shorts- none.
If you NEED to wear something, wear the smallest thong you can find.
I don't wear any, at least when I'm working out :blushing: My leggings have a built in liner and I wash them after every workout to keep things kosher. I ONLY wear leggings on the bottom to work out. No riding up, no falling down, no chafing. I've even safety pinned my under-tanktop to my leggings to keep everything in its place. It really works.0
One more thing, after a long run (aka half marathon) I bring a change of clothes and typically just change in public, can't really do that unless you've got some undies on under your running shorts/pants0
Depending... but briefs, bikinis, and even a jock straps (for males at least)... anything on the leg is going to ride up.0
Yes this seems silly but I don't know so I figured I would just ask.I have recently started running. I am still at the jog/walk stage but whatever. My issue is my underwear fall down. I got new ones because after losing thirty lbs I figured that they were obviously too big. Even with the new ones they are not comfortable for running. Before I go underwear shopping do any of you mfp ladies have any suggestions on style. It's not like I can try them out first. Thanks
I recommend 2 in 1 running shorts (compression shorts).
I avoid wearing underwear whenever possible. It's really more of a life motto. But if shorty running shorts aren't your thing, both Athleta and Oiselle make longer shorts with liners. Or you can get a longer running skirt with compression shorts underneath.0
So far my favorite boy shorts are maidenform. No panty lines yay! I would be too grossed out to go commando because I don't want a wet spot of sweat all over the crotch of my pants especially when I stretch afterward. Gross.0
in good weather, i wear running shorts with the built in underwear. i buy them at Target. When it's cooler, i wear either yoga capris or sweats. you don't need underwear with either. If the yoga capris make you feel immodest, wear a big shirt that covers your hips.0
