Just Can’t Get Enough: Gap Stretch Cotton Bikinis

We’re close enough now that I can start writing about my underwear.  Right?  Right.

When I first got back in to running regularly, about two years ago, I ran in the same undergarments that I typically wore to the gym:  various thongs in a variety of fabrics (cotton, modal, nylon); and quickly paid the price.  Gradually, I began turning to some undergarments that I typically saved for those less pleasant days of the month:  cotton bikinis.

Yes, I know, you’re not supposed to wear cotton when you exercise.  It has no magical moisture wicking powers and doesn’t hold up as well as technical fabrics.  But still, they do the trick.

I just can’t get enough of my Gap Stretch Cotton Bikinis!

– The flat-seamed elastic trim never digs in at the thigh or waist.

– They do not leave marks, chafe or irritate in any way.

– They never ride up or slide down – presuming you’ve purchased the correct size.  I may have, once or twice, in a moment of sheer vanity purchased these in an extra-small when in reality those are made for teenagers and my butt cheeks clearly belong in a small.  Those extra-smalls, I assure you, do ride up.

– They offer full butt cheek coverage.  This is crucial.

– I never seem to notice any moisture issues.  Maybe my high-tech moisture wicking pants osmote the moisture right out of my underthings.  Who knows? And who cares really, if you’re comfortable?

– They’re pretty affordable, and I always stock up during sales.

They come in some great prints and colors, too; so you don’t have to feel all granny-style when you’re running hardcore hill repeats. Not that you would, anyway.
