    Bib-Shorts for Everyday Use?

    I like bib-shorts. I like them so much that I am tempted to wear them all of the time. It's so nice to not feel the need to hike up my pants every 5 seconds for fear that my butt-crack is showing.

    My question is this: Does anyone know of a bib-short-like undergarment that is appropriate for everyday use? Ideally, I would like something resembling a wrestling singlet that is made of a moisture-wicking material.

    I work in healthcare and wear scrubs. I also have a tendency to sweat (especially when bicycle-commuting to work). The inevitable sweat stains that show up under my man-bosom (read pecs) and down my back make me feel self-conscious. I've taken to wearing Wal-Mart "performance" underwear beneath my scrubs. The tees and shorts work great at preventing sweat stains on my scrubs, but I am constantly readjusting them and hiking up my pants while working. Bib-shorts would seem to me to be the ideal undergarment for my needs.

    Thanks for any and all replies!
    Gettin' my Fred on.

    Not aware of any undergarments that match your description. Outerwear is something else - Lederhosen, I believe.

    Just get some suspenders!

    But DONT wear them with shorts of any kind. You will look like an 80 year old Florida geezer.

    I try not to interfere in the man discussions on their clothing issues but . . .

    I know that there are women's tri-shorts without padding or which just have a bit of fleece. I actually like the compression shorts without padding for rides of less than 20 miles. Maybe there are men's tri-bibs without padding?
