What underwear to wear whilst running?



  • m&s shorts which are vpl free image

  • ferbreeze is good for freshening up sports gear saves washing image

  • I wear stuff, I wash it.

    I couldn't even think of wearing running gear that hadn't been washed since the last run. image

    I have three pairs of running tights, that gives me plenty of time to wash them before they are needed - even if I ran every day!


  • +1 for M&S no VLP ones- my favourite, but I've run in all kinds, including thong and cotton boxer shorts. Not a great choice. Haven't tried commando, some tights like skins are too see -through for this option.
  • Couldn't give a stuff about VPL..

    Must admit in the winter I get a couple of goes out of tights. I figure if I run 5 one day then 5 the next what's the difference than running 10 in one go. Tops and undies only one go.image

    Summer is different!


  • I use Nike underwear,really soft shorts like a tight boxer short or cycle short,and it helps prevent inner thigh rub too

    I sometimes go commando but I end up with bruises on the side of my knees...


    if you do wear white shorts commando without shaving your arse then people are going to give you a right kicking....no wonder you have bruises

  • A thong definitely, it's loads more comfortable and you don't get any chafing from the seams inside your leggings.....

    Triathlon shorts under regular running shorts. Stop chafing and prevent everything bouncing about but don't look out of place.
