Default Workout UNDERWEAR????

???? Seriously, is there any brands out there that makes a COMFY underwear (FOR WOMEN) that doesn't ride up???

I currently wear boy shorts that are made of cotton and whenever I'm running or on the elliptical and I'm working up a sweat my underwear rides up.

And NO I will NOT wear a thong and I will NOT go commando! I refuse!

So if anyone knows of a good brand that makes underwear SPECIFIC for working out that DOESN"T ride up PLEASE let me know!

Perhaps the cotton is the issue?

Cotton doesn't wick moisture, it just absorbs.

If your workout clothes are made of a wicking poly wunder-fabric I think you might be having some compatability issues.

Patagonia makes wicking underwear of all types for men and women. I can't give a personal recommendation (since I errr go commando---long-time cyclist here!) but I will say that I have been very pleased with every other piece of Patagonia clothing I have ever owned.

UnderArmour.

It's expensive, but it's pretty much the best out there. Once you use it, you'll never use anything else when you work out.

My wife swears by her thongs and would not even consider wearing anything else. I guess she likes to see her body while working out as it inspires her.

If you refuse to go with a thong, then UnderArmor is the way to go.

I wear running shorts with built-in liner. These work great for me.

True, I never wear cotton anymore when I work out. I don't necessarily always use UA brand, but always a wicking sythetic. You can actually get knock off UnderArmour at WalMart and Target for less than 1/2 price. It doesn't last as long, but it is the same material.

I may have to try underarmour again, with all the recommendations here. I tried them a few years ago and the fit just did not work for me. By the time I found a size that was large enough to not bind tightly around my hips, the rear end was way too big. I'm not a large person (size 6 - 8) but I carry most of my body fat on my hips and thighs. I can't stand a tight waist/hip band as it causes such a noticeable line in anything I wear - especially my gym shorts and pants.

I've had great luck with the Moving Comfort micro brief....but now I see they have been discontinued!!!! I've been wearing these for years...and they fit me perfectly. Darn it...I guess I need to go scour the internet and see who has some left!!!
