The Pros of Wearing Underwear Under Compression Shorts

For some women, the main benefit of wearing underwear under compression shorts is the extra layer of protection. If you're particularly active or tend to sweat a lot, you may find that underwear helps keep your shorts in place and prevents them from riding up. However, the right pair of compression shorts should stay in place on their own, so this may not be a concern for everyone. Another pro of wearing underwear under compression shorts is the added support it can provide. If you're concerned about things like chafing or discomfort in your groin area, wearing underwear adds a barrier between your skin and the fabric of your shorts. This can be particularly helpful if you're wearing a cheaper pair of compression shorts that might not be as soft, comfortable, or supportive as you'd ideally like. Additionally, some people simply prefer how they look and feel when they're wearing underwear under compression shorts. The right choice of underwear, like our shaper shorts, can often enhance one's appearance in compression shorts. If you like the feeling of that extra layer of support, there's no reason not to wear them!

The Cons of Wearing Underwear Under Compression Shorts

While there are some benefits to wearing underwear under compression shorts, there are also a few potential drawbacks. One of the biggest problems with wearing an undergarment is that it can create more friction when worn under supportive shorts, leading to unnecessary chafing and discomfort. If you're susceptible to these issues, you may want to avoid wearing underwear under your shorts. An additional downside of wearing underwear is that it can make your shorts feel tighter than they are. This can be a problem if you're trying to achieve a certain level of compression for recovery or performance purposes. In general, it's best to choose a pair of shorts that fit you well without the added layer of underwear. Finally, some people find that they dislike how an undergarment feels or looks under their shorts. Some styles and materials of underwear are less suitable to pair with compression shorts than others, so if you're adamant about wearing underwear with compression shorts, you may need to experiment with a few different types of underwear to find the right fit.

Choosing the Right Underwear for Your Compression Shorts

If you've decided that you want to wear panties under your compression shorts, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the right pair. First, make sure that the underwear is made from a moisture-wicking material. This will help keep you dry and comfortable even if you sweat during your workout. You'll also want to choose a pair of underwear with a supportive fit - they shouldn't be too tight or loose. If too tight, the underwear could lead to unwanted friction. If too loose, it may not provide the level of support you need. This is where tummy-control shapewear can come in handy. Above all, it's important to choose a pair of underwear that you find comfortable. If you're constantly adjusting or readjusting the undergarment, likely, it's not the right fit. If you're comfortable, you'll be able to focus on your workout instead of your clothing.
