Activewear has been some of my favourite clothing for as long as I can remember. They stretch they breathe, they look good. They are functional as well as stylish. I’ve always loved it, but I only recently started using it for its intended purpose. With my new found love for actually being active, I realized there is a whole level of activewear I had never noticed; yet is so very important. Activewear underwear. I’m not talking about the ever-popular sports bra. No, I am talking about actual activewear underwear.

This was a bit of a learning curve for me. I mean underwear is underwear right. You have those special “date night” ones, but working doesn’t need any special treatment. Boy, was I wrong. Nobody wants to bunch up fabric riding up your back, midway through a run. Or worse yet, odour from trapped moisture. Activewear underwear is here to help solve both those potential issues.

Choosing Activewear Underwear

When looking for activewear underwear, choose a pair with sweat-wicking fabric. Just like the rest of your activewear, it eliminates moisture quickly so you can stay dry even when you’re working up a real sweat. This won’t just make your workout more comfortable, it will also keep your underwear from becoming a breeding ground for bacteria. – Which sounds like a recipe for disaster – Add in the order eliminating technology that goes hand in hand with any activewear and you’re on the path to a winner. Activewear underwear generally doesn’t come in fabrics that aren’t, workout-friendly fabrics, but just in case steer clear of cotton, silk and lace because they’re not very breathable.

Making sure your activewear underwear is sized properly is another important step to consider. The tighter it is, the more it’s going to uphold against you and potentially trap moisture, bacteria, and sweat that can lead to that bacteria growth we were talking about earlier.”  If, when you put it on, you fee feel restricted, or you see indentation lines in the skin, they’re probably too small.

Just like regular underwear, activewear underwear comes in all the cuts. Yes, even thongs. So, depending on what sort of activity you’re doing there may one or another that works better for you.  Whether you’re a fan of thongs or boyshorts, you’re looking for something that hugs your body enough to stay in place without riding or bunching. I generally spend FAR to much time worrying about panty lines with my leggings so I steer towards thongs, however, when running they can rub in all the wrong places.

Deciding what type of activewear underwear you prefer may take some trial and error. Every woman is shaped differently and has different style and preferences. So try a few brands, sizes, cuts, and fabrics. Not that you needed an excuse to go shopping. Right?

Do you have a favourite activewear underwear?

I haven’t heard of an active wear underwear. If time comes that I would need one, I would definitely go back to this post! Thanks for your tips!

I do have favorite types that I like best. I used to only wear white or black and then a couple of years ago, my daughters told me I was SO boring! haha. I ventured into blues and pinks, but still only the same type!
