Just a quick #chicktip today! We're going to talk knicks, going commando, and lady parts. Who's in??
It's a strange thing, as a woman, to forego underwear - in almost any situation. Britney Spears and LIndsay Lohan taught us, if anything, that if you go without, you will be caught out. Plus, it just feels weird, squishy and moist (that word we all love).
(Men, I think, are a bit more used to 'freedom' down there, and seem to do it often enough under shorts, and even jeans - omg could you imagine aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!)
When I first started riding, I was so weirded out by having everything smushed into bike pants...
When I first started riding, I refused to wear bike shorts. I was set on wearing normal underpants with either leggings or a pair of shorts overtop and for some reason, was pretty insistent that I would never change...
I think it took me a full year before I trusted the shorts manufacturer and stopped wearing underpants beneath my knicks - and you know what?
And it was the best thing I ever did!
Bike shorts these days are specifically designed for you to get all of your kit off. The paid has anti-bacterial properties, it's thick and foamy, and is shaped to fit our undercarriage when we are sitting on a bike.
Putting a layer of cotton, lace, or other fabric in between our delicate areas and this bacterial properties actually increases the chances of sweat being trapped, of itching to occur and for unwanted rubbing and chafing.
Ladies - it's time to leave the house without underwear!
PS - if you want some super comfy knicks of ours, buy them here in Navy or Black!
