Okay, seems a bit personal. But what underwear is acceptable to wear whilst running? If I wear leggings, I get really visable pantline, but wearing a thong doesn't seem right for exercise? HELP!

The usual convention is to wear none.

Briefs. I find with nothing there is a lot of movement down below, which seems to put a lot of drivers off

I wear my wifes knickers sometimes when i forget to take them off from the night before. Can't say i've ever noticed a visable line.

VPL is not something to stress about, comfort is more important. Don't forget a good sports bra too.

^^ what he said, its a run not a night club, dont worry what people think, be comfortable.

that said, my gf uses the nike combat pro ones, she says they are amazing. not cheap mind you, sports direct do/did them cheap though or a while so worth a look there.

I would say that when the back ground noise of traffic accidents subsides to only the odd ding. Then your choice of underwear is suitable.

You are quite correct in avoiding the thong option or worse (better for some) the commando line.

A run in public under these conditions could result in something resembling a Hollywood blockbuster involving Bruce Willis.

Decathlon do some good sports pants/knickers. Well they do for boys, so I'm assuming the same for the lasses too!

red pants white leggings is the way to go.

why is it only blokes responding to this question?

Acceptable? This isn't the Ritz, there isn't a dress code. Wear whatever feels comfortable and that includes a thong or nothing at all. I don't wear anything.

wear what is the most comfortable........I used to wear a pair of bikini bottom when i first started running..........

but after a few people told me that comando is the most comfortable......I has ran commando for the lastfew years and wouldn't go back to wearing knickers now for running...........just don't wear thin tights or shorts,,,,,,,,and definitely not white ones that go see through in the rain

All the shorts I own now have a stitched in brief lining, and I have to say it is far more comfortable than any shorts/underwear combo I had previously worn. 

But I have no idea if such things exist for women.

Personally I couldn't give two hoots whether I have a VPL or not - I'm out to run not at a beauty pageant.  Shock horror, I don't even wear makeup either........!

I wear nothing under my running shorts/tights, less risk of chafing.

Less stuff to wash, too 

There is no "acceptable" underwear for running - wear what you are comfortable in.
