Thoughts on Men’s Exercise Running Tights
I know this is mostly a bikini and thong blog, but I think tights kind of fit in with them being form fitting. Don’t worry I’ll fit some bikinis and thongs into the post. The tight idea came about while chatting with a friend online about his wearing them to the gym and running along with the potential of the thong triangle showing. Or even the color of the thong depending on the tights color. So I thought I would throw some of my thoughts out there on tights for guys.
I always thought it looked a bit silly seeing guys wearing tights under shorts. Seems like you should just wear one or the other. I know the reasoning why they wear both, but here at the blog we know shorts are not needed. We should not be ashamed to show our package bump. I also don’t believe we should worry about showing underwear lines under tights either. Who cares if bikini lines are showing or thong lines. With showing no lines people probably would assume you are wearing no underwear over a thong. I mean women are wearing form fitting pants all the time and are showing underwear lines and personally seeing bikini underwear lines or skimpier cut underwear lines is sexy to me. Thong lines are even spottable too.
I don’t really have experience with tights working out or running. Normally, I wore shorts when I went to the gym. Now I do have tights and bike shorts for bicycling, so I have experience wearing them. Some believe you don’t wear underwear with them, but I always have. I never worried about showing underwear lines. Actually at times I tried to wear bikinis that would show lines through them. Was one way to promote them and show them off. Of course no one ever mentioned if they saw them.
So why wear tights? One reason would be for comfort. They’re going to hug your body, so no worrying about rubbing anywhere and the hugging material is typically comfy material. With the hugging you’ll have some kind of support for your muscles if you are wearing them for some sort of exercise or activity. Even if they aren’t worn for exercise you’ll still have some muscular support. They’re great for wicking sweat away. No soaking wet sweat or athletic pants and sweat running down your legs. For those that workout in the woods like cross-country skiing, mountain biking, or running you have less worry about getting grabbed by a branch compared to baggy pants or shorts. I know I don’t want a branch getting caught on my clothing while mountain biking single track trails. A bonus with tights is it shows off your legs and butt. Personally, I’m not one for aiming to show off the package especially with the negativity out there with form fitting swimwear. My goal is to try and wear form fitting items in a positive way whenever possible. Now, I’d say it is free game to do so, since women are able to show off their entire silhouette. I just say aim to do it in a respectful manner.
As I mentioned I wouldn’t say I have a lot of experience with wearing tights. I just have a couple pairs of padded cycling tights for cooler weather rides. People seem to think less about form fitting tights or shorts when they are part of a sport. I’m not sure how they are looked at at the gym. I don’t recall many guys wearing just tights when I worked out some at the gym several years back now. My guess around my area they probably still aren’t popular without shorts over them. Now and then I see guys running in them outside, but not very many. Seems most women are running in them though.
Another reason I decided to write this post is I decided it is time for me to explore wearing tights at least more than the padded bike ones. Seems like it should be part of my journey of trying to promote it is fine for guys to wear form fitting items too. So since my wife wanted an exercise/spinning bike, I took the opportunity as an excuse to pick up two pairs of exercise tights (non padded butt) from Amazon. I’ll start experimenting with them with the exercise bike, but will try to incorporate them in other ways. Not sure if they’ll motivate me to go for a run, but we’ll see. What’s your thought on tights? Do you like to wear them to workout in? Run in? Sports? Wear them for just everyday comfort?
