The Best Underwear For Every Workout
The Pro:Andrea Speir of SPEIR Pilates
“I need something seamless that won’t bunch up, which is why I love these,” she says. This super soft, wet-wicking set definitely has that barely-there feel, plus the bonded seams and delicate cut means no irritation or VPLs.
The Pro:Charlee Atkins, C.S.C.S., founder of Le Sweat
“I’ve ditched all other brands of underwear for this brand because they are quite simply the best for working out and for every day,” Atkins says. “They fit my body well, with no annoying wedgie.” She opts for either the thong or the bikini, both of which feature an extra lightweight nylon fabric.
The pro: Holly Rilinger, Flywheel master trainer
Rilinger is another fan of the thong to help limit the amount of material trapping moisture in your nether region. “For me, personally, the less fabric the better so I can focus on my ride,” she says. But if you just can’t get on board the thong train—or you can’t get rid of that sore booty every time you hit the saddle, padded undies may help.
The pro: Jess Movold, a run coach at Mile High Run Club
Movold prefers to go commando when running, but she’s not fully panty-free. “Underwear can get uncomfortable and bunch up when you sweat a lot,” she says. So instead, she goes for tight shorts with built-in bottoms. Her favorite: New Balance’s running collection.
The pros: Natalie Uhling, Creator of NuFit; Anna Kaiser, celebrity trainer and founder of AKT InMotion
Shimmying your way through a Beyoncé song requires undies that aren’t going to give you a wedgie every time you thrust a hip. So Uhling and Kaiser both turn to thongs: “They stays put so I don’t have to keep adjusting—or I just go bare,” says Uhling.
(Note: If you prefer to go commando, Dweck says you should make sure you’re wearing breathable pants.)
The pro:Kristin McGee, celebrity yoga and Pilates instructor
McGee reaches for briefs with seamless design. Knix is her go-to brand—the company designed their Athletic Boyshorts after surveying over 350 female personal trainers to ensure their product held up to plenty of sweat.
The Pro: Kirsten Trued, a coach at Uplift Studios.
“This is the only underwear I own,” Trued says. And that’s because it’s mostly cotton with a hit of spandex, making it soft and flexible (a must for HIIT). Plus, zero lines.
The pro: , adventure traveler and Icebreaker ambassador
The combo of merino wool and feminine (but not thong-style) cut makes this feel like “magic” for Mareedu, who loves wearing them on hikes, walks, or just every day. They come in some cute colors, too.
The pro: Koly Swistak, a Backcountry product tester
Great for taking your stride to the outdoors, Swistak says these are the best she’s ever tried. “The fabric is soft and breathable, with an elastic hip band and low cut that stays in place even on the longest hiking days,” she says.
