Ah, the age old question: should I wear undies with gym leggings? Personally, my answer is no; when I hit the gym, I go commando. And I know that I’m not alone in this fact. According to a study done by Cottonelle, 25% of women report going commando to the gym sometimes and 8% say they go commando everytime. Why, you ask? There are numerous health benefits that come from skipping the undies, including no rubbing/irritation and breathability. Overall, wearing no underwear with my leggings increases my general comfort. VISAKAI recognized all of the benefits of going commando to the gym, and designed leggings that safely and stylishly allow me to do so. Read below for the five major reasons that I go commando to the gym and why VISAKAI leggings are perfect for it:
When I’m working hard at yoga or pilates and sweat is everywhere, the last thing I want is to feel extra constricted and extra toasty because of my undies. Going commando allows me to stay as cool as possible throughout my workout. VISAKAI’s Freeluxe Technology also helps me out with this, as the gusset of every legging is made of an extremely breathable cotton fabric that absorbs moisture, and is leak resistant.
My underwear always rides up when I work out. It is unavoidable. But, going commando solves the problem: there is no bunching, scrunching, or pulling in inconvenient places. Instead, I can focus completely on my workout.
After an intense workout, I feel gross in sweaty underwear. Furthermore, this is actually really bad for vaginal health. Wearing unbreathable undies with overly-tight leggings can lead to yeast infections and UTIs--painful and uncomfortable infections that can be easily avoided if you go commando. Good thing VISAKAI leggings are totally breathable.
There’s certain freeing feeling that comes along with going commando. This makes a big difference to me as I workout. It feels liberating to feel less constrained during yoga or pilates. VISAKAI leggings still provide a sense of security though--with the layered gusset, I can be free without worrying about leaks or thin fabric.
This is my number one reason for going commando with my leggings. I hate it when my underwear lines are visible through the fabric of my leggings. I don’t want to be left with big seams circling my hips. I definitely don’t pay top dollar for my leggings just for people to see my panty lines through them. VISAKAI leggings allow for me to avoid this pet peeve, while also keeping me protected.
