9 of the Best Underwear for Working Out

When it comes to finding the best underwear for working out, comfort, functionality and performance are key. Whether you’re engaging in high-intensity training or a restorative yoga session, having the right underwear can make all the difference. For instance, high-quality shapewear underwear provides desired support and flexibility, and it also offers the benefits of strategic compression and shaping.

The great thing about Leonisa underwear is that it comes in a variety of stylish options for stretching, sprinting, taking a spin class, walking on the treadmill, lifting weights and more. From breathable fabrics to moisture-wicking properties, these options help you feel confident throughout your fitness journey.

1. Boyshorts

A seamless waistband and leg bands make boyshorts a fabulous choice for the woman on the move. It’s all about soft, stretchy fabric in polyamide and elastane and a breathable cotton gusset that won’t ride up and give you the dreaded wedgie. You’re getting full coverage with great sweat-wicking capability.

Our boyshorts are designed to fit right at the hip and flatter a range of bodies. These one-size bottoms are highly flexible and can comfortably fit hip sizes ranging from 34.5 to 44.5 inches. You’ll probably want more than one, so buy them in a convenient three-pack in pretty assorted colors.

2. Bikini Panties

Low-rise bikini panties in stretch cotton are so comfy and never dig into the body — you won’t even know you’re wearing them during your workouts. Cotton is a breathable and highly absorbent material. This style of panty is designed to sit right below the natural waist, and ours are designed with flat, comfortable bands and soft seams for a perfect fit and freedom of motion. You won’t see these panties under your leggings, so they’re ideal to put on when you’re heading to the gym. These classic bikini undies come in sizes XXS to L.

3. Compression High-Waist Briefs

Our compression high-waist brief features a classic design in women’s panties with smooth, stretchy, modern fabric. This style offers complete coverage all over. The front panel features a very comfortable compression fabric that slims the tummy and provides great support.

The 100% cotton gusset is gentle on sensitive areas, and the unique seaming down the center of the rear gives a flattering shape. The compression high-waist brief won’t chafe or ride up as you take off for a run or engage in any kind of exercise. You’ll get amazing softness, security and comfort all in one panty.

4. Cheeky Panties

This undergarment option is versatile and has a subtle, built-in butt-lifting effect. Cheeky panties are designed beautifully to sit at mid-waist and never roll up or down. They’re invisible under your workout clothing and feel soft and buttery-smooth. The pretty scalloped-lace waistband makes them look ultra-feminine.

The cheeky panties feature seamless leg bands, and the ruched seam in the back creates an awesome rear view. They will become your gym favorites, holding up after multiple washes and always offering incredible stretch. Panties that look great are key, but investing in underwear that won’t stretch out or rip after a few uses is just as important when it comes to working out.

5. Thong Panties

Talk about the ultimate invisible underwear! The thong panty is an extremely popular option, and ours is made with laser-cut fabric and a seamless transition. You won’t know you have it on because it feels weightless and stays in place no matter how hard you work out. Try some squats, and you’ll see what everyone’s raving about.

Worried about panty lines? The right thong panties can make you feel like you’ve gone commando, so don’t hesitate to try them out. Who wouldn’t appreciate a thong with soft, light fabric made with DuraFit® to provide all-day comfort? These thong panties fit sizes XXS to XL.

6. Shaper Shorts

Not only do shaper shorts smooth and shape the belly, hips and legs, but their moderate- to high-compression fabric also supports one’s posture while working out. Designed to be undetectable under your workout gear, these shorts can make you feel more confident.

Some shaper shorts also come with contour padding that adds flattering volume to one’s behind. You can remove the padding and wear them as traditional shaper shorts. The fabric includes a 100% cotton gusset for comfort, and the shaper shorts are constructed with a totally seamless finish.

7. Eco-Friendly Panties

It’s one thing to wear comfy undergarments when you work out, but how about choosing a pair of eco-conscious undies at the same time? You’re doing your part to help both your body and the planet when you select an eco-friendly, classic high-waisted shaper panty. The incredible thing is that these soft, seamless panties are made from one recycled bottle! They look and feel luxe and accentuate your curves while flattening your tummy.

Our eco-friendly panties are sustainable undies that offer the seamless design many women favor because they are invisible under clothing, especially your exercise leggings. Also, a fabric made with modern wicking technology draws moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and cool as you engage in physical activity.

8. Lace Panties

Sometimes, you just want to feel glamorous under your workout gear, and lace panties never disappoint. You have tremendous options from Leonisa, including lace thongs, cheeky lace hipster panties, lace smoothing panties and more.

The lace border low-rise cheeky panty is a fine example of pretty details in a super soft, smooth fabric. The entire panty is delicately accentuated with a border featuring our signature SmartLace®. It has no leg bands for a seamless look that is undetectable under clothing. A tiny bow adorns the top of the back of the panty. It’s a simple and minimal design that adds just the right touch of lace and is made of a durable, breathable fabric that is ideal for working out.

9. Period Panties

If leaks are preventing you from going to the gym, there’s a solution. Leonisa’s period panty is made of a revolutionary fabric that is designed to offer extra leak protection from your period or light incontinence. The hipster light-flow period panty has been thoughtfully designed, featuring maximum protection through three gusset layers that have been constructed to hold onto fluids to prevent them from reaching the exterior.

The fabric layers are not bulky, and the anti-odor panties conform to the body with comfortable stretch cotton in a classic hipster style. Our period panties are available in sizes XXS to XL.

Talking about leaks (period or bladder) can be challenging, but you are certainly not alone. Many women experience leaks while exercising, and it’s nice knowing that there’s a modern panty designed especially for that.

Top It Off With a Sports Bra

Leonisa’s sports bras provide support while allowing freedom of movement. Our high-tech reversible sports bras are crafted using our innovative seamless SkinFuse® technology. They are designed to keep your bust securely centered and in place during your workouts. Featuring quick-dry fabric, our sports bras help wick away moisture, keeping you feeling fresh and dry. Since they’re reversible, you get the versatility of a truly two-in-one piece. Our sports bras come in a variety of support levels. The maximum support sports bra has an elasticated underbust band and strategic seams to provide support like an underwire. It’s also made from eco-friendly BIO-PET fabric that’s created from two plastic bottles.
