I know this is totally radom, but I am really curious.
What do you wear to the gym in regards to underwear?
I always wear track shorts (with cotton briefs underneath), but would like to start wearing more yoga-like capris for my crossfit workouts since I’m bending all over the place and you can see right up my shorts. I don’t understand how all these ladies wear them and have no panty lines unless they are wearing a thong. Are you people really wearing a thong to the gym? I just don’t believe it. There is no way a thong is conducive to a successful squat (Hello, front wedgie!).
In any case, am I thinking too much into this? Should I just let the panty lines fly? Or is there some secret underwear I just don’t know about yet?

I wear a thong or… nothing at all for everything from weight lifting to rugby games. Once you get used to it, it won’t get in the way of squatting.

I wear a thong. I am most comfortable in them. have you tried biy shorts? Or seamless underwear?

I wonder the same thing! I am so uncomfortable wearing a thong at the gym, but I can’t stand panty lines either!

If thongs fit properly, you aren’t even aware you have one on.

I suck it up and don’t worry about the panty lines. But mine is an amazing all-women’s gym (Healthworks, for anyone in the Boston area), and somehow I’m not as self-conscious as I would be at a coed gym.

Man…I was thinking this the other day. And what about going to the gym when AF is in town? Do people rock the panty line then? Does this mean that no one at my gym ever have an AF workout day ever? Or does it mean that they are all super women who can rock thongs all.the.time….?

@julies1949: In that case, I have never in my life had a properly fitted thong.

@julies1949: Agree!!! I teach aerobics and I wear a thong but a lot of my associates go without anything.

@mightywombat: Try getting them a size smaller than you think they should be. I had this problem too at first: Medium thongs at Lasenza or other undergarment stores were WAY too big! So I buy smalls now… It makes me feel cute and little!

I got some unbelievably comfy thongs at La Senza that have no seams and a breathable gusset. Although I’d like to, I can’t go commando because I tend to be…*TMI WARNING* fairly juicy down there, especially when I’m working up a sweat. I’m envious of women who can go panty-less and not look end up looking like they wet themselves.

I wear my bikini cut underwear and rock the minimal panty lines with my spandex capris. I’m working out – not making a fashion statement.

*GASP* I just wear my underwear. If I have panty lines, who cares? I’m working out. Although I have seen my backside with the spandex shorts and panty lines and it’s hysterical. I’m probably on a ‘what not to wear’ column somewhere. I’m fashion conscious everywhere but the gym.

Thong or brazillian (cross between a thong and boy short, usually a thin lace edge which doesn’t show through).
A longer t-shirt would also work?

I wear thongs all the time, I find them much more comfortable than bikinis-so thats what I wear to the gym too.
