    something like this, with yoga pants over it:

    comfortable, no chafe, wick away sweat and stay cool, Not to mention additional support for the torn hamstring....

    I wear moisture wicking underwear, I have them in boy shorts and thongs. The thought of not wearing underwear makes me nauseous.

    I started going commando a few months ago....My workout pants have nice cotton crotch so I figure that is good enough...

    Umm, I don't go to the gym to look "cute". I go to work and sweat. But I just wear my regular bikini breifs and could care less about a panty line, lol.

    Always a thong! Maybe a liner would help with Uti?

    You know I would try this if I wasnt afraid that somehow it would work itself out and be stuck to my calf while doing squats . hahahaha or worse fall out with a trip to the bathroom then get stuck on my shoe.

    Maybe I worry to much.. hahaha

    I'm thinking that a woman at my gym did this because one day, not long ago, she had a liner stuck to the inside of her thigh. She didn't even know it. Yes, I walked over and said something IN CASE she cared. She did. I haven't seen her at the gym lately. Hopefully, she will recover.

    I stick to boy shorts. I can't get used to thongs and I refuse to go commando. Took awhile to find the right pair of boy shorts though. I have Vanity Fair now and they are super silky and actually make the butt look better in lycra.

    I know this is gross, but the reason thongs cause UTIs is because very small amounts of fecal matter get on the thong and travel down to where your urethra is (not to mention other lady parts). I stopped wearing thongs years ago once I learned that they are a poop highway :noway:

    I wear mostly seamless panties (briefs, bikinis, hipsters, whatever) in some kind of blended wicking fabric. For me the concern is more swamp butt and bunching than panty lines, because really people should mind their own damn business during workout time in terms of what other people are wearing (besides things like "hey, where did you get that, it looks cute and comfortable and functional", which people have asked me, and that I don't mind - it's also kind of funny because the leggings that have gotten the most comments are from Old Navy - they're decently functional and they look good but, you know, you get what you pay for and they're pilling up already). I don't go commando because then I'd have to wash my gym clothes just that much more often.

    Clearly thongs are not an option if they give you UTI's. Wear seamless panties or seamless briefs, or if you're comfortable in shorts, wear running shorts with lining and go commando.
