Compression shorts

I posted a blog a few days ago asking about this very same thing. I am on the search for the perfect running shorts. I have a pair of 2 inch Under Armour compression shorts and they rode up. Maybe because they are so short. I bought a pair of Nike running shorts that a lot of people have raved about. I'm looking forward to trying them out the next nice day. I'll have to look into that spray stuff someone mentioned. Maybe my running store will carry it?

I also went to the longer version of the Under Armour compression shorts because I found the shorter ones always rode up. (they also gave me double-thigh...kinda like an inverted muffin top, where my thigh fat was squishing out the bottom?...nice visual, I know!) I also always wear them under something, never solo...it's not 1984 anymore and this gal does not need to be seen in spandex shorts again!

I am all too familiar with shorts riding up while I run. I use a rubber spray made by Cramer called Firm Grip. I spray some on my inner thighs, where the bottom of my shorts touch. Just a little is needed. No more riding up while I run. It wears off in about a day.

I wear knee length compression shorts with running shorts over them. Knee length compression shorts that fit well should not ride up. I do have a shorter pair of compression shorts and they do ride up.

I'm a big fan of the knee length compression shorts. I bought a pair (can't remember the brand) about 6 weeks ago and absolutely love them. They are so comfy, don't ride up or move around and actually make my legs look better. I just wear them with a long singlet to cover my bum :)

I wear them longer and a little bit looser.

I try and find athletic running shorts with the underwear built in. They're extremely comfortable and tend to have more room in the leg, most specifically on the outside, leaving you with plenty of mobility and little worry with having to keep pulling them back down.

They may be too big?! :D I'm loving that possibility. :)

I also wear longer compression shorts. Also, if they ride up, they may actually be too big.

I just purchased a pair of underarmour compression shorts. They are the longer ones. I really like them.

I had to buy a longer version of the compression shorts because the shorts I wore over the other ones actually rode up while I was doing a mud run, and I got a horrible rash from the chafing and the dirty water on my shorts.

The longer compression shorts are great and they don't ride up, but I always wear shorts over those anyway because I don't like the way my butt looks in something so tight! I also don't wear them with underwear and I don't have a problem with how they feel.

Does anyone have any tips to stop running shorts from riding up? I have a pair of compression shorts from Under Armour as well as a Nike pair and both ride up annoyingly. :( Should I wear them without underwear on? I dunno. That would just feel weird. I'm also definitely not thin enough to try a running skirt yet.. plus I can't imagine the chaffing that would come with that.
