Thongs tend to earn a bad rep as the least comfortable underwear. But despite their negative notoriety as "butt floss," they're actually ideal for not only avoiding panty lines but also irritating wedgies — especially during a workout. Enter: the best workout thongs, which are as comfortable as they are functional.
Of course, everyone has their own notion of the the best underwear for working out. But if you haven't given thongs a chance in the gym, there's plenty of reasons to try one out. Sure, the no-show cut is great if you're not into sporting visible panty lines, but for many people, the real draw to a workout thong is the lack of fabric. If you've ever had to stop in the middle of spin class to readjust your underwear, you know how irritating bunched up panties can be, but with the right thong, you'll never have to worry about them riding up again.
Additionally, many workout thongs are specially designed to stay in place while exercising and offer a moveable four-way stretch that's ideal for unconstricted movement. Their sport-focused design also means many of these thongs are made to handle sweat and offer quick-drying technology.
