Going Commando In Your Yoga Pants


Do you Go Commando in your yoga pants? Here's why I do, and why I'd love to Go Commando at Wanderlust 108 in San Diego 


Yoga people are a funny thing. We each have our preferences on what style we like to practice, music our practices is set to, brand(s) of clothes we prefer to practice in and... If we go commando under those clothes! I know, I know. Going commando is a strange thing to talk about. Makes people uncomfortable. So obvi, you know that's just the topic I like to discuss! I don't get the ladies I see at the studio in yoga pants and panties. Here's why I go commando in my yoga pants:

This post is so funny, but it's so true! Panty lines with yoga pants are not a good look

Okay, for starters, how on earth is that thong comfortable when you're hanging out in down dog? Let's get real here. There's NO WAY you can tell me that after a few sun salutations and bending over, reverse swan diving up and floating back down again, that thing isn't riding all kinds of up your bum. Tell me it isn't and I'll call your bluff! Also, thong wearers, you do know it's visible to all of us in the studio, correct? Best case senairio I'm only seeing the outline through your yoga pants. Worst case, your pants don't stay put and your T strap is flying higher than your pigeon pose, waving "Hi!" for the whole class to see.

It's not a good look, that one.

Then there's the brief wearing gals. These just really get me! All your lines are hangin' and flangin' and odds are, one side is riding higher than the other. I kinda want to whisper in your ear, "It's ok... Just pick that wedgie real quick. Everyone can see that you have one so just go ahead and pick it." I mean, seriously. Why even bother! The compression of your yoga pants is going to make that brief go all over the place, and you don't need your undies distracting you (um... and others!) during your yoga practice!



That leaves me with my type of ladies: the go commando squad! We don't have to worry about thongs popping out mid-down-dog. We don't worry about a wedgie that everyone at Wanderlust, an AMAZING yoga festival, can see. The compression of your yoga pants holds everything in place and you're just free to practice freely! Oh, you're concerned you're not "clean enough" to go commando? Don't be silly! Cottonelle® is the only brand with CleanRipple Texture that easily fits into your zen lifestyle and your "clean routine"! It's specifically designed to clean you better, so you can go commando in your yoga pants.

Cottonelle® CleanRipple Texture gets you so clean, you can remove your safety net (that dumb thong and unsightly briefs!) and go for advanced pose.

  1. Hahahaha I love this post. I go commando in my barre pants like 50% of the time, it really depends on if I'm coming from work or not. It definitely is more comfy to me as well and I need to check out that dry shampoo!

  3. Yaass! Every time I see someone wearing panties under their yoga, barre, you name it tight workout pants, I'm thinking, "For the love. That is not a good look and must be so uncomfortable." Free yourselves ladies!

  8. This is so funny! I always go commando in yoga pants and leggings. It's the best way to go! I hate panty lines and I hate when underwear crawl, so I opt to just avoid them whenever possible LOL.

  9. OMG are too funny and brave! I have to admit, I have been both the thong girl and the granny panties! I have no shame! I do love using wet ones though so maybe I just need to be brave! Love how you always tell it like it is!
