Friday’s Fashion – Bras and panties that won’t hinder your performance in the saddle

Not all undergarments were created with riders in mind. It can be tricky to find underwear that are comfortable to wear in the saddle and that do not show a panty line through your breeches. Equally challenging is finding a bra that looks attractive under your white show shirt and provides enough support. I have personally made the grave mistake of wearing unsuitable undergarments to the barn that have given me the wedgie of all wedgies and nearly caused me black eyes when I tried to sit trot.

If your underwear is under performing and you are not comfortable, you cannot put in your best ride. After years of testing out different bras and underwear, I have found some that are riding-friendly and very comfortable under my riding apparel.

Victoria’s Secret seamless raw cut thong: The great thing about thongs is it is physically impossible for them to give you a proper wedgie. This particular thong is made out of smooth and stretchy material and if you purchase it in ‘Nude’ it will be unnoticeable even under your whitest and tightest breeches. So comfortable, you will never get an awkward rub from a seam that starts sitting in the wrong place during your dressage test. I wear these and love them!

Under Armour® Pure Stretch: If thongs are not your cup of tea, these underwear will do the job equally as well. They are made out of a nice stretchy material and are also seamless, making them comfortable to ride even the bounciest of trots. You would need X-ray vision in order to spot them under any pair of breeches so you will never have a panty line ruin your competition photos.

Incredible by Victorias Secret Sports Bra: This is the best underwire sports bra on the market in my opinion. It provides a maximum amount of support but it still looks and feels great to wear. The body-wick fabric will keep you dry on the hottest competition days and it is machine-washable. Order this bra in ‘Nude’ to wear under your classy white show shirt. It also comes in a variety of colours so it can also be worn alone like a bathing suit top for riding at home in the summer. I have been known to do my gallop sets in this one on its own.
