  • "Delicate" question

    Okay guys...warm weather is approaching and I'm picking your brains as to your favorite undies for the summer time for riding. I usually wear cotton thongs but I am a huge sweater...I sweat like a pig, and then they're soaked and disgusting. I also tend to get heat rash...ugh. Any recommendations? I've been recommended the Vanishing Edge undies at Soma but I don't have a Soma near me and am nervous to order online on one person's recommendation. Thanks!

    Summer is the worst isn't it
    Wear dark colored breeches or wear cotton undies with a liner to catch the sweat! Also try to wear LIGHTER breeches so that you aren't a living furnace

      It sure is the worst...although after the winter we've had, I'll take the heat. Haha. Do you have any breeches recommendations by chance? Ones that are a little better about hiding sweat?

        I actually like the soma underwear. The silicon edges keep them in place even if you sweat (... and I do a fair bit). The fabric is thin enough that they dry out quickly too. Those, paired with light weight riding tights, tend to be my best option to avoid chafing or heat rash in summer.

          No, I don't wear any tan breeches when I know I'm going to sweat, haha. If I'm showing and need tan breeches I'll wear a liner to make sure I don't sweat through other than that breeches that have silicon full seat can distract from the sweat.

            Ooh, good to know! They definitely looked intriguing and I'm glad to hear you like them. I might have to splurge and get a few pairs...

              Ugh, yes tan breeches and any other lighter color are the devil. I wore my beautiful light blue breeches on Sunday when it was only 70 degrees and sweated right through them. I have to say I usually gravitate towards black in the summer even though they're hotter, just because my sweat doesn't show through them as easily!

                While I don't have any suggestions on breeches or undies. I go thru about 5 bottles of Anti-Monkey Butt powder each summer.. I apply liberally. And while it may be too much TMI.. I found one summer i had to use some athletes foot cream )cheaper than the same exact ingredient in the women's vaginal creams ) to help with rashes in that area.

                  I have navy breeches that don't show any, also hunter green SmartPak Piper breeches (WHICH I LOVE!!!) honestly it's kind of just like a hit and miss thing, look for what you think would help! If you don't have the money for buying a ton of breeches (I'm sure we can all relate my mom often says out of all the sports and I had to choose the most expensive one!) I suggest using TackHunter, it's a secondhand equestrian app just like PoshMark! I LOVE IT!

                    I think I bought Anti-Monkey Butt about 6 or 7 years ago and never used it. Maybe I should give it a go...and thanks for the tip on athletes foot cream!

                        So I am a total sweater! I actually find that full bottom panties help at least catch some of the sweat. Also cotton, a little thicker, to really absorb. I have been known to still sweat through that, but that is usually X number of horses in and at that point I am glad to be wet because it creates a cool "breeze" as I ride I think of it as AC!!
                        Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then ALWAYS be a unicorn.

                          I am a sweater. I find it is best to spit test breeches (just soak a tiny corner of a waistband or something, preferably with a water bottle but spit works in a jam). I have some if all sorts of colors that show nothing.

                          I actually do this with all clothes because I had hyperhydrosis as a teen and I am very self conscious about it.

                          For panties, I stick with cotton...you can use your deodorant anywhere you tend to get heat rash, or something like runners' BodyGlide. It helps a lot.

                            Awesome tips, thank you. The spit test is an awesome idea.

                                I sweat a ton! I love the knixwear leakproof panties. I've worn the boyshorts under too tight whites and been completely confident. As a bonus, they are terrific period backup. Also pretty handy on Classic Sundays that are always ALWAYS during that time of the month.

                                  I have the same issue! I don't sweat THAT much, but I do chafe and get irritated down there very easily. My OBGYN told me that wearing normal cotton undies are my best bet, and she also told me to look into an anti-chafing gel by monistat that goes on like a gel but dries like a powder, if I find it I will let you know where to get it!

                                      As for the chafing, there is nothing better than Assos chamois cream. It's got a bit of a cooling effect (so, be careful where applied), antibacterial, etc. https://www.competitivecyclist.com/a...NDYXQxMDA0NDE=

                                      Can't say I have used it for riding horses, but it's a requirement when I'm on my bike.

                                      I'm not much help with the sweat part though.

                                        Assos chamois cream is so much better than Chamois Butt'r. I tried to include a link, but it got blocked. It's got minty cooling-ness to it, though, so be careful where you apply. It will help with chafing. I haven't used it riding horses, but it's a necessity when I'm on my bike. Can't say I have a solution for the sweat.
