Dear Runners Who Wear Running Tights,
A.k.a. 95% of the running community. We have mentioned maybe only one time before how your running tights are NOT acceptable for wearing. Rarely do we tell you to your face because, um, if we did, you’d be stuck knowing how not a good idea it was to wear those tights outside of your home and here you are partaking in a lengthy workout that is not close to being done.
What are we talking about?
Your butt crack. The design of your panties.
Because we can see them through your running tights!
Here’s our advice to you – when you purchase said running tights try them on either before you buy them or immediately upon receiving them in the mail. Get in front of a mirror, turn around and bend over. Can you see your butt crack through them? Can you see your underwear through them?
If you answered yes to any of those questions either a) don’t buy them b) return them or c) never wear them without a shirt that completely covers your rear end.
Additionally, here’s yet another piece of advice from us to you – do not stop checking your butt in the mirror before leaving the house in said running tights. Why? Because the fabric could have worn thin and just because originally we couldn’t see through them, um, NOW we can! OR because you developed a tear that just happens to run parallel to your butt crack. Trust us, we have seen it before.
At this stage of our running life, we just feel it is our duty to put this information out there. Please heed our advice!
And for those of you who don’t have this problem due to you already being conscious of the need to look out for your butt and the pattern of your panties or just your butt crack you pat yourself on the back right now!
