4 Pairs of Breathable Underwear for Working Out

4 Pairs of Breathable Underwear for Working Out

When you think of working out, you give a lot of attention to your leggings, sports bras, and shoes, but what about the best breathable underwear for working out? We all know that feeling – you're crushing your workout, feeling strong and energized, but then, the dreaded dampness. Let's face it: sweaty gym sessions are part of the territory, but that doesn't mean you must sacrifice comfort. And more than just how they make you feel, breathable undies are essential for keeping your nether regions healthy.


Criteria for Selecting Breathable Underwear

When choosing gym underwear for ladies, there are a few key factors to consider. First and foremost, the fabric should be moisture-wicking, breathable, and quick-drying to prevent any sweat buildup. No one wants to feel swampy during a spin class. Additionally, you want underwear that will not give you wedgies or VPLs or cause chafing while you're out running. In general, cotton underwear (or undies with a cotton gusset - which all of ThirdLove’s underwear features) is the best for workouts. 


Best Workout Underwear for Women

Now that you know what to look for, let's outfit you. Here are our favorite moisture-wicking underwear that will keep you feeling fresh during your next workout.

1. Hipster

Our 24/7® Classic Hipster is a perfect blend of comfort and style for your active lifestyle. Made from our signature lightweight microfiber (like our 24/7® Bra collection), these hipsters are unbelievably soft and breathable and move with you through every squat, lunge, or burpee. The hipster cut offers full coverage in the back, making it an excellent choice for all types of workouts. It also rocks a 100% cotton gusset to keep everything fresh.


2. Brief

For those who prefer a more classic silhouette, the Organic Cloud Cotton Brief is your best friend. Crafted with ultra-soft organic cotton, these briefs are designed to be gentle on the skin. The fabric is naturally breathable and wicks away moisture, keeping you feeling fresh during your workouts. These briefs offer a snug fit without feeling restrictive, making it perfect for low-impact exercises where comfort is key. The higher-waisted cut also provides extra coverage and a smooth, flattering look.

3. Bikini

The ComfortStretch Bikini strikes the perfect balance between coverage and freedom of movement. It is made with a four-way stretch fabric that moves to fit your body, allowing unrestricted movement during your fitness activities. It is lightweight and moisture-wicking, ensuring you stay cool, while the seamless construction eliminates chafing, whether you are hitting the treadmill or tackling a spin class. Plus, its sleek design lays flat against your body with no elastic or bulky stitches, which means no visible panty lines.


4. Thong

For those who prefer a minimal approach, our Organic Cloud Cotton Thong is the ultimate in lightweight and breathable underwear. The soft, organic cotton fabric wicks away moisture, keeping you dry and comfortable throughout your workout. It offers the same luxurious, breathable organic cotton as its brief counterpart but with a minimalist silhouette that disappears seamlessly beneath even the most unforgiving leggings. Despite this minimal design, these thongs are incredibly comfortable and stay in place. Plus, they work well, even for sensitive skin.

So there you have it - four pairs of the best breathable underwear for working out, each designed to keep you comfortable, dry, and focused on your fitness goals. Whether you are a hipster, brief, bikini, or thong kind of gal, ThirdLove has a perfect pair for you. While undies might be underrated in workouts, investing in high-quality, breathable underwear is a game-changer for your workout routine. You can crush your goals all while feeling confident and relaxed.
