More often than not, some of our favorite buys are small, how-didn’t-I-know-about-this products that solve an everyday problem. That’s what we’re highlighting in our Little Lifesavers series: cheap, simple purchases that you’ll use on the daily. Hit “Add to Cart” and thank us later!
Problem: I hate underwear that rides up or slides down when I'm running or relaxing, but thanks to my tall frame and bone structure similar to a stout draft horse, no underwear has ever seemed to fit me properly.
Solution: The Reebok Seamless Briefs are soft, comfortable, and breathable, and they stay exactly where they belong on your butt.
I have a love/hate relationship with underwear. I can’t stand going without it, but then again, I have rarely found a brand or cut that really suits my needs. Most underwear labeled “seamless” never, ever seems to stay up, and usually ends up somewhere between hemispheres A and B within the first hour of wear. I also have a hard time with cotton underwear because it doesn't effectively wick away moisture when I work out.
On a lark, I decided to search Amazon for what was hot and popular in the land of underthings. Scrolling through what must’ve been hundreds of options, I came across the reviewer-favorite Reebok Seamless Briefs and thought, “What could be the harm of trying?” This five-pack is $20 and made by a brand that I happen to love for my workout gear and shoes, so I was immediately on board with hitting that “one-click.”
I have never been so happy about making an impulse purchase in my life. This underwear is the perfect texture and cut for my body. They're made of a blend of nylon and spandex, and they feel like almost nothing when they’re on. They aren’t mesh — they’re actual, solid underpants, but they feel like they could be mesh, they’re so breathable. They’re high-waisted and the waistband is soft and about an inch wide, providing just about the perfect amount of hold at the top.
Arguably, the Reebok Seamless Briefs are not truly seamless. They definitely have seams, they're just not super noticeable. However, thanks to those delightful stretchy stitches, you won't end up fishing for your knickers down the back of your leggings after you take the dog for a walk.
And let me tell you about the way they hug the booty. The Reebok Seamless Briefs cover my backside entirely, yet somehow manage to not look like granny panties? I can only reason that it’s Reebok’s own brand of sorcery that is responsible. My husband actually said, “Dang, those make your butt look hot.” I mean — we’ve been married for almost 17 years, so I will take that compliment and immediately order a few more sets of five, thank you kindly.
My only issues with these are that they are darn near impossible to put on if your moisturizer or body oil isn't 100% soaked into your skin or if you're a little wet from the pool or shower. They will find a way to hide from your fingers as you attempt to pull them up your thighs.
My other irritation is that they aren't very size-inclusive. On Amazon's website, you can only get them in sizes small to extra large, which in my opinion, isn't enough. Reebok does sell plus-size clothing, so why is the sizing on their underwear so limited?
Frustrations aside, the Reebok Seamless Briefs are, without a doubt, the best underwear I have ever worn. They're the perfect underthings for working out and well beyond, and I don't plan on ever buying another brand if I can help it. They're basically perfect.
