    Exclamation I learned something - don't ever wear "boy shorts" style underwear under breeches...

    why? Cause they make you look like you are wearing a diaper! OMG! My husband took all kinds of pictures of me on a hunter pace this week, and I couldn't believe I didn't turn around in a mirror and look.

    so on that note - where are the recommendations for the most flattering breeches (and cost is not an issue)....

    I'm not being caught like that again! LOL!

    Yeah, we need to see this, promise not to laugh.
    We need information. I was considering getting some boyshorts to ride in. Currently I always ride in my "big girl underwear" AKA Granny panties because I can not stand to ride in thongs. I know some of you love them, but my experience has been different & VERY uncomfortable.
    So, I was thinking lately I might try some boyshorts for something different.
    Jophoto, were they comfortable & just unattractive, or were they uncomfortable too?

    I always ride in boy shorts because I have what I call Ride-Up problems. The trick is to make sure they aren't too small therefore too tight on your legs. I buy mine from Under Armour as there is an outlet about 30 min from my house.

    I can't stand them. I thought they looked so comfy so I bought a few pairs. They all give me wedgies and run up uncomfortably high like a thong the minute you start walking...yuck. I'll keep them on my "dont-try-again" list after hearing yet another negative review.

    Same experience I had.


    Alagirl, that is a great question. I do not see where that name comes from either.

    I think it depends on the brand and the fit, as the most comfy and best-looking (i.e. no lines) for me are the boy short cut, especially the UnderArmour ones.

    Granny panties under breeches for me. The ones with a bit of "control"

    And yes, we must see pictures, please!

    Fit is important with the boy shorts. If they are too small they will creep up and leave really odd lines.
    I wear Victoria's Secret Pink boy shorts under my running tights. The smalls would creep, but mediums stay put very nicely and don't cause VPL.

    If this is going to be another thread about how VPL is one of the major problems in the universe, I'm going to run away now.

    Oh yeah, one of those threads where everyone complains about VPLs but it is OK to have their contrasting bra straps and bra show thru/around their shirt, having made no effort to cover it (like using a T-strap bra with their T-backed tank top). Oh the irony.

    What's VPL? Oh, wait. Vaginal Panty Lines? Wait. Virtual Panty Lines? No, wait.

    VPL. Virgin Panty Lines. Vaginal Pulp Loss.

    I don't know, what is it?

    Oh. Am I making this about VPL?
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

    I tried them, too, in different sizes thinking that was the problem. Nope, they just ride up something horrible. I was told that they were great because there is almost no VPL, but they were so uncomfortable that I switched back to bikinis, VPL be damned!

    No, silly. That's called camel toe.

    Default I wear bike shorts

    which I get in Wal-Mart.
    Comfy, and no ride up!

    I have a couple of pairs of underarmour ones as well but they are a bit slippy and it's hard to really sit down in them, so I keep them for trail riding days. But they are comfy otherwise and no VPLs.
