10 Ways to Wear Athletic Lingerie
Sporty underthings that score points in comfort without compromising style
Borrowing materials and themes from athleisure trends that make appearances both on the runway and in the gym, fall’s fresh selection of lingerie is decidedly sporty. From lace sports bras to mesh panties, it’s clear that even intimates are getting in on the athletic look. While these underthings aren’t necessarily meant for working out, they employ fabrics often seen in activewear for the ultimate in comfort.
