This is too funny not to share. I've recently started back running/jogging. There are certain kinds of underwear (panties) that fall down as soon as I start running. And when they fall down its not all the way to my ankles, its just below my buttcheeks lol. Anyone else ever experience this? I don't think they are too big because they stay up just fine but only do that when I run. So yesterday on my run my underwear stayed down around my thighs the entire time, annoying, but funny. I could only think the cars driving past saw my buttcheeks just flapping away! =) So obviously I will no longer wear those on my runs.

haha i've had the same problem and sometimes even my shorts fall down. I would stop and pull up and tie my shorts tighter. Tying them helped but I eventually gave up on the underwear. haha. I think we should go with tighter outer and under wear :-

I'd trade underwear falling down for shorts riding up any day!

This happens when I do Tae-Bo, certain underwear just slip off. I started wearing booty shorts and ones with elastic around the this and waist, these don't slip of anymore :P

go commando, its the best =) underwear are a pain, i own a bunch but most the time skip that process when getting ready, lol.

most run specific short/pants/tights are designed to be worn without underwear so I'll second or third the commando suggestion.

I am a comando girl as ell - or I likethe Under Armor panties but holy $15 a pair!

Happens to me too! But once I actually wore some that started falling under my buttcheeks and my workout pants were falling too - LUCKILY the pants had that adjustment string and tightened them up and had to wait till I got home to pick up the undies---they were completely under my butt and running was so uncomfortable!

Hmmmmm never heard of the commando thing for running. My husband is a real runner, as in runs marathons, and he had never heard of running commando either. Might have to give it a try since I'm not gonna go out and spend money on special pants or shorts for running, at least not around christmas time. Thanks to those who suggested that very interesting tip!

If you're not comfy with commado, try a thong with spandex. VS makes them in a nice, breathable material.

I used to run commando all the time but my running pants/tights would bunch up in a place that no woman should have that happen...so, I started wearing the underwear again. I don't have the falling down issue but, dang, that is funny!
