    No need. I run and workout at home! ;)

    I'm mostly confused at how people think that this ISN"T happening.

    It never occurred to me to wear underwear while working out. The only time I do is when it's my TOM and it drives me a little batty. If I could get away with not wearing socks, I would, but seeing as I don't want blisters they are a must. I might reevaluate this when I start going to the gym again, but as of now underwear aren't a must for me.

    I do exercise classes. I see things, things that make me feel very happy I wear underwear under my workout clothes.

    If your yoga pants split while you are in down dog, you and everyone else around you will be happy it's just your underwear showing.

    If your yoga pants are surprisingly see-through when stretched and you don't know because you can't see your own hiney, again, underwear to the rescue.

    I try not to look, but some things you can't not see. B)

    Maybe this is because I am a really big girl, but how in the heck do yall go without underwear???? I would feel so naked! and if by some crazy turn of events your pants should split....ummm your bum would be hanging out. I like snug hi-cuts by the way. I do not do cycling much because it hurts my tushy, but I do alot of walking! They do not ride up. Good luck!

    We were just talking about this at work! I need technical underwear! I tried going comando, but there are seams in my compression pants that make it impossible...but I need something that wicks the moisture away, as I seem to end up almost with diaper rash (sorry if tmi!!).

    Ex officio is technical underwear. Synthetic, wicking and seamless. I got a pair for an obstacle course race and they are swell. Bought them at r.e.I. All cuts were available.
    Will check them out - thanks!

    hahaha oh my goodness what have I started here?!

    thanks everyone - I think I kind of agree about the not-going-commando at the gym thing - will definitely be wiping the machines down before I use them now though!!

    Wow. There are a lot of different responses here. I just wear whatever underpants. Typically bikini. They are the best bet for staying out of my *kitten* crack. Forget thongs, boy shorts or anything like that. Also forget commando. I don't sweat much when I train so I don't wash my shorts every time. They usually have chalk on them but whatever. Also, I predominantly train at home and go braless.

    I would like to point out that you should never ever ever wear undies with cycling shorts that have a chamois.

    I don't use the equipment (I mean not the kind you sit on) lol.

    I think that if women are sweating and/or leaking enough to leave a disturbing residue on equipment, an extra layer of thin cotton won't do much to prevent this. I wear underwear to the gym because I fear camel toe more than visible panty line (not to imply that women who do go commando always have camel toe, they probably have nicer work out pants than I do).
