I’ve not found sports-specialist underwear for women very easy to find. There seems to be a lack of understanding about why ladies need performance kit and I hope that more brands start paying attention and providing us with a greater range of cheaper products.
Unlike the boys, we don’t need any support in this area 😉 but I do expect my underwear to stay in place, not chafe, and not to show through my Lycra yoga pants.
And on a busy day when I do loads of classes, I’d like to stay fresh, if you know what I mean! I started my search in earnest after a particularly embarrassing patch of sweat stopped me enjoying my workout a few weeks ago.
I found a few designs online (mainly American) but wasn’t thrilled with the hefty price tag. I work out almost every day and the price of this most basic aspect of my outfit was soon going to stack up.
I was dubious about the “one size fits all” label, but decided to give them a go especially as I’m now a size 10. I don’t know how well they would work for other people, but they fit me pretty well, stay in place, and I have no complaints about pantylines. Even better, they performed perfectly on my busiest day of classes, wicking sweat so I could avoid that nasty sticky feeling.
Pleased with the trial run, I’m going back to get more, as Fitco currently has them marked down by 40%. I wouldn’t be too happy if I had to pay the £10 RRP but even that is cheaper than the brands I originally saw online.
