Vigorous exercise like running can get uncomfortable if your underwear is loose and made of fabric that causes skin irritation. Enter running underwear. Usually made of synthetic fibers like polyester and a stretchy material like spandex, they provide comfort while keeping their shape during your running routine. Notice the length of the inseam (the fabric between the legs). Running underwear with a shorter inseam may ride up. Some prefer a higher waistband while others find it intrusive. There should be enough polyester to wick moisture from your body to avoid chafing, but there should also be sufficient spandex for the underwear to stretch while running while still keeping its shape.
