ok ladies this one's for you...question on the panty line!
Ooooook........thanks to The Potato's Mom for reminding me to post this question....what is the choice of panties for showing in breeches???
I HATE the panty line...it drives me CRAZY. I feel like it draws attention to my booty....I don't want people walking around thinking "oh look I can see that girl's panty line!" noooo!!!
What do you guys prefer?? Regular undies (but they ride up), thong (just don't go there, its not pretty), boxer breifs (ok but they can get bunched up around thighs). I will be the first to admit I have ridden panty-less (thanks to the recommendation from a previous trainer).....please tell me I'm not the only one!
I call them my "Big girl riding underwear". Full coverage breif, preferrably not cotton, as they tend to stick to my breech & ride up with it.
My trainer rides in the new Silver riding underwear & loves them - says she won't ride in anything else.
I make sure it is beige. One time I was getting on a horse and my breeches split down the back. At first, it was just a tiny tear, so I went in anyway- figured I'd change between trips. Needless to say, the first fence- rrrrrrrRRRRRRIIIIIPPPPPPPP! Everyone, I say everyone, knew I was wearing a hot pink lacey number from VS. I did my hunter circle and as I rode by the judge, she was laughing her arse off- she quietly said "beige next time please"...
I still got 2nd out of 36... won my division, but I was refered to as "the pink thong lady" for the remainder of the show....
I'm not ashamed to say that I go commando! I can't wear a thong because they rub my skin right off...
I wouldn't be ashamed of doing it but found the center seam very uncomfortable the only time I tried it. And when they stay in place thongs can be the best solution. My problem is that sometimes they end up "out of position." I think I'll try the Silver panties next.
I found some no show boy shorts that are great for riding. The only time I wear them is when showing because they are big and ugly, but they do the trick. I think I picked them up at Costco. They are made of microfiber and are tapered so they don't show.
In daily life thongs are great, as is going commando if need be, but I will NEVER do that again at a horse show after I took a bad fall and the first thing they wanted to do was pull my belt off and undo my pants.
Although I found some underwear at Target the other day made of some material I've never seen used on undies before- VERY thin, and no seams along the edges. They feel like wearing nothing, don't seem to show (haven't tried them under breeches yet though), and cost a whopping $3.
