Gym Underwear We Can’t Be Without!
13th September 2023
When it comes to hitting the gym, we all know how important it is to have the right workout clothes, from comfortable trainers to breathable tops and supportive leggings. However, one garment that often gets overlooked but is essential for optimal workout performance is gym underwear.
Gym underwear plays a crucial role in providing support, comfort, and moisture-wicking properties during intense physical activities. Wearing the wrong type of underwear can lead to discomfort, chafing, and even hygiene issues and no one wants that! To help you find the perfect gym underwear that you can't be without, we've compiled a list of the most suitable bras and knickers to support you through your next workout.
While not technically underwear, sports bras are a must-have when working out. They provide the necessary level of support and compression to minimise breast movement during exercise, reducing the risk of discomfort and potential long-term damage to the breast tissue. Luckily for you, we’ve got plenty of fabulous sports bras to suit your size, shape and activity! For more intense workouts, think HIIT, running, tennis etc. you'll want a high support sports bra. That’s where the Energy Empower Underwired Lightly Padded Convertible Sports Bra comes in. This underwired and lightly padded bra supports your bust giving you a subtle lift while feeling light and comfortable thanks to the added stretch and breathable material. And with adjustable straps, this bra allows you to cross the straps into a racerback giving you even more support!
If you’re a gym lover, a medium sports bra like the Energy Reach Underwired Lightly Padded Sports Bra will be your best friend. With breathable lightly padded foam cups, underwiring and cushioned straps you’ll feel comfortable, supported and secure during your next workout. This must-have sports bra also features a clever J-hook fastening at the back allowing you to convert it into a racer back style to give you the extra support and hold you need. For yoga and Pilates fanatics, the light support Energy Logo Elastic Yoga Crop Top is a must-have. This seamless style feels comfy when you put it on, and lets you move, twist and bend with ease so it will never get in your way.

Seamless underwear, often made from nylon or polyester blends, is a fantastic option for those who prefer a minimalistic and sleek design. They eliminate the risk of chafing and don't leave any visible panty lines, making them a favourite of ours. So, when you next go to the gym why not slip on the Off Duty Invisible Thong. Comfortable, breathable and super soft we have a range of seamless knickers such as the Off Duty Invisible Deep Brief, in a variety of different cuts and colours. Virtually undetectable under your gym clothes our seamless knickers are so soft, you’ll forget you’re even wearing any!
These are perfect if you prefer a more traditional underwear style. Moisture-wicking briefs are made from materials that quickly absorb sweat and evaporate moisture, preventing bacterial growth and odor. Look for briefs that have a breathable mesh panel such as the Viva Luxe High Leg Brief for added comfort and ventilation. In a range of colours to suit your workout gear, these flattering knickers give a clean, smooth shape under your leggings so there will be no VPL in sight!
There's no need to skip on style even when it comes to your gym underwear. Performance thongs, made from moisture-wicking fabrics and featuring a seamless design, offer comfort and support without compromising on aesthetics. They're perfect for high-intensity workouts and activities that require a full range of motion. We have the perfect thong for just this, the India High Leg Thong. In a soft, comfortable fabric with breathable mesh panels, these super soft thongs will support even the hardest of workouts.
