ANDIAMO! Briefs.

Today was the day to try out a new underwear garment and the ANDIAMO! brief is the item. For the life of me I felt like I was wearing women's panties!! However, I'm pleased to report they ARE an improvement over the cotton briefs I'd been wearing. So, I'm giving them my recommendation, for what it's worth.

The most disturbing part of your post, is that you know how it feels to wear women's panties...

I hope you're not saying you wear underwear under your cycling shorts. I hope that's not what you're saying . . . any kind of underwear.

You clearly should wear them over your tights like Superman (or Wonderwoman), whichever floats your boat.

That's EXACTLY what I'm saying and it's comfortable too.

I fought that battle for years, wearing something under my bibs, and - well - I now wear nothing under my bibs - the same as I wear nothing under my swimsuit. Since I do a lot of swimming, and hate the drag of one one of those canvas "swim suit" monstrosities, I wear these. Very comfortable, hide what needs to be hidden.



Same with my bibs. Nothing under them.

Louis, you kinda stepped in it this time. Thanks for the info and entertainment.

On a serious note, I have a couple different kind of stretchy nylon-something underwear for backpacking: briefs and longer legged ones. They are remarkably comfortable.

The Underwear Nazi and I had many facetious exchanges. However, we discovered that our tongue-in-cheek discussions were taken rather seriously by some folks, and things got out of hand, and we stopped. Somewhere along the way I was told who the UN was, and I promptly forgot (well, in your 70's, almost everything is promptly forgotten). Then I was told that the UN had left the forum.

However, it was someone with a double identity, and the forum mods were aware of this, as I understand it.

Reading the entire thread, there is a lot a really funny stuff in there. It's too bad too many have no sense of humor these days. Oh well.

There were numerous threads between me and UN. I have learned that some folks have senses of humor far different from mine (or perhaps none at all). I tend to be very tongue-in-cheek, and folks take me seriously, and I have to watch myself. Others end up on my ignore list.
