Rundies – Sports Underwear That Doesn’t Ride Up!

I have always worn minimal underwear due to that horrible undie line you always seem to get underneath your gym wear. You can feel it creasing as you walk and consciously are forever pulling them down to lessen the effects of ”that” line.

Then along came the Berlei Free Cut Boyleg Briefs.  Super light and comfy, you feel confident knowing you don’t have a baggy bum!

wwrw1a_neq_1WWRW1A_BA1_3As a She Science Ambassador, we get to try lots of different types of apparel and underwear and when I saw the Berlei rundies, I wasn’t convinced they were for me.  However, upon starting to wear them, initially just under a pair of jeans – which I highly recommend, I noticed how comfortable and light they really were.

I am now a convert, wearing my Berlei rundies under all my gym gear and even casual gear from time to time, mainly because I need a few more pairs!

These are undies you can count on, the inside tape holds them in place so they don’t ride up and the cool max material keeps the moisture away from your skin. Truly comfy undies!

A review of performance underwear for horse-riding

By Linda Lewis, She Science Ambassador and HRCAV competitor

Imagine this ‘you’re preparing for a competition; you start your list…’

  • Wash and prepare horse
  • Pack float with saddlery, feed, grooming supplies
  • Pack riding apparel; boots, helmet, jodhpurs, shirt, vest, jacket

You may even consider your sports bra, makeup and what you will eat, but have you thought about your underwear?

Before meeting the girls at She Science my choice of underwear was never a conscious decision. They suggested I try technical underwear aka ‘rundies’ that were getting great reviews from the equestrian community. So over the past months I have put the 2XU, Moving Comfort and Panache ‘rundies’ to test.

The overall verdict

I found that all three styles provided a seamless finish under jodhpurs which was important to me, as it is most riders. Being full coverage underwear all three styles also stayed in place and didn’t ride up at all. The light moisture wicking fabrics were comfortable and kept me cool.

2XU Performance Briefs

The 2XU fit especially well on me, I now wear them as my everyday underwear. They are a bikini cut with a little bit of stick on the edges to stop them moving, along with seam free edges all around. Very comfy! As a bonus these are available in nude so they work well under my white Jodhpurs.

Panache Sports Brief

The Panache are great as a ‘tummy tucker’. They are a higher cut and provide more support to all the ‘post-baby wobbly bits’. The firmer materials also help to contribute to this supportive feeling.

Moving Comfort Bikini Brief

The Moving Comfort fabrics are extremely light, with a mesh panel across the back that helps prevent sweat patches. The waist band height is fairly standard.

I felt all three styles offer supreme comfort, quality and performance over any store bought underwear. I had tried dance underwear before however they didn’t survive the rough treatment of jodhpurs and saddles, and didn’t have the moisture wicking capabilities of sports underwear.

Am I converted? Absolutely! When I think about it, why shouldn’t we choose underwear for horse riding based on performance.
