Coming Clean About What I Wear Under My Running, Workout, and Yoga Pants

what_I_Wear_under_running_workout_yoga_pantsI decided to discuss the topic of “What do you wear under your running, workout, and yoga pants?” because I hear this a lot. Here is my answer, I go commando.  Yep, truth. Chafing is no fun.  When I was a newish runner I ran a half marathon in a pair of underwear that gave me such bad chafing where the elastic was.  It hurt so bad on my upper thighs, the part where my legs meet my body.  I said, “Never again!”.  I did some research and sure enough going commando is a common thing! 

FullSizeRenderI have never had a problem once I started going commando.  My workouts, yoga classes, and my running have all been a lot more comfortable.  No more painful chafing from undies on that bottom part of your bum that rubs the elastic.  Let’s face it, underwear is the last thing you need standing in the way of you and nailing that inversion or setting a new personal record.  No to mention VPL, visible panty lines.  We have all seen those and don’t want to be that person.

FullSizeRenderDo I ever have chafing from going commando?  NEVER ONCE!  Once I started running and working out commando I never looked back.  I don’t need to worry about glide for chafing protection or anything down there.  

FullSizeRenderI know, this can seem like TMI to some people, but when I was first in this situation I wish there was a blog post of a person saying this!  It would have been very helpful to me.  I feel like at races, the gym, and the yoga studio people talk about so much openly, so why not this?  Do you see every picture in this post?  All commando! Sorry, not sorry because I know this will help answer the question for a lot of people.  It is pretty amazing how just eliminating undies can be so comfortable. 

FullSizeRenderI feel totally confident and comfortable doing it too.  Cottonelle® toilet paper and flushable cleansing cloths are amazing. Only Cottonelle® has CleanRipple Texture designed to clean better, so you’re clean enough to Go Commando.  Still on the fence?  Just try it it!  You never know until you try.
