Just got into running, but not sure what the 'dress code' is. I also do a lot of cyling and wear lydra for that. Just wondering what runners wear? Lycra shorts/leggings or baggys and what is the ladies perspective. i.e. what would they prefer men to wear?

All thoughts and opinions appreciated!

Depends on the shape of the man in the lycra. :o)

If you do a lot of cycling, you are probably ok. However, you may want to wear something baggy over the top, for modesty, if you get the drift.

But lycra does stop chafing, so it's well worth wearing.

I'm really not keen on those little flappy shorts, no matter HOW impressive the thighs. I'm always worried that something might make an untimely appearance.

After yet another case of race-induced "runner's inner thigh", I think I may have to go down the lycra route.

But from what I was informed in the pub on Friday night (if I can remember properly), regular shorts should be worn over the top of lycra shorts and underwear worn under tights!

That sounds like pants to me SVT ;-)

Lycra alone would be enough, surely?

lycra alone - commando style - is fine.........if the seams rub, use seamless trolleys under..........

Ah, but lycra alone with a large, erm, lunchbox could cause traffic accidents Wilkie.

Best to be on the safe side.

Commando in tights is fine, but I prefer to have a longish top for modesty's sake.

A thong could always be worn! Nice!

Not in cold weather, Nessie.

My original question remians, do women like men in lycra?
31/10/2005 at 16:11
Speaking for my wife, I'd say no.

As Nessie said, it depends on the shape of the man.

Fit bloke with flat stomach, pert buttocks and firm thighs - yes

Fat bloke with overhangin gut and saggy @rse - no!

Ah, I can see my problem now.
31/10/2005 at 16:12
This wimmin does. But I can't spik for others. And to be honest, and in line with other threads where chaps have been rather less than caring in their comments about LADIES in Lycra (if said ladies aren't Nell McAndrew), it rather depends on the men.
