Exercise! - Running = Massive wedgie.

This has got to be the most annoying thing about the treadmill, for me. I feel like I'm digging my panties out of my crack every quarter lap. I don't have wedgie problems any other time.
What do you do to avoid this???? I wear hipsters with looseish shorts over the top. I tried going commando once and my shorts themselves crawled into my bum!!!! :mad::dizzy: Would it help if I wore tighter bottoms?

I don't get wedgies......I just get a clump of shorts between my thighs :/ I just keep on pickin' and grinnin' :D

I wear a pair of mid-thigh compression shorts (http://www.championusa.com/workout-clothes/women/new-arrivals/-cm445--1?d1=CSEC&cm_mmc=ComparisonShopping-_-pricegrabber.com-_-Women%3EShorts_and_Skirts%3EView%20all%20Shorts_an d_Skirts-_-CM445)--commando style. I usually put a pair of looser shorts over them, but not always. I typically wear a top that covers just to the area right below my cheeks (not too long, not too short). I hate pulling, grabbing, flopping things while I run. It is super annoying!

Oh thanks! Those look like they might work!

Same as peachypeg, my shorts just tend to ride up in the crotch area. BUT, I have noticed whenever I wear hipsters or boyshorts, I get a wedgie constantly (exercise or not). I personally find bikini briefs to be the least likely to cause wedgies!

Try proper running garments--either tights/bike-shorts-type shorts that are designed to be worn without anything under them or gym-shorts-type-shorts with a built-in "liner" which is code for built-in undies. Eiither way, don't wear separate underwear.

Um...I don't wear underwear when I run...ever! It will completely solve your problem!

I wear "compression" capris (http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=116535002&tid=onfr1r) but I wear my regular undies. Thong... so I guess I already have a perma-wedgie :)

I always wear cotton thong undies. You get used to the feeling and then you never have to adjust your underwear again.

Well, I don't go commando, but I wear microfiber high brief undies and then compression thigh length pants. I don't get wedgies.
I can't go undie-less because of my leakage problem and needing to wear a pad when doing cardio. I don't get wedgies.

I like microfiber briefs too. Hipsters always ride up on me. I wear yoga capris, no riding up in the crotch!
