I agree with most of the posters that if you want "no lines" thongs are your best option. You can also try underwear from Moving Comfort which are made for working out - I have a few pairs but they are thongs!
My favorite by far though are the workout shorts with underwear in them. These won't work for yoga but are great for lifting weights or any other gym workout. I wear them to my work gym so I don't get my underwear sweaty and don't have to worry about it bunching up in front of my co-workers!

microfiber does the best for me. There may be a little VPL with some of my yoga pants, but nothing major.
when I'm wearing dress pants I love my boy shorts, but I hate them for running! I do okay in spin class wearing boy shorts, but HIIT or running they bunch up and drive me crazy.

I gave up caring about the underwear visuals after college when realized I was the only one that actually cared...but as far as bunching and staying put I think it's like finding the right shoe. Every booty is different. My personal favorite, although expensive, are the VS cotton. But they keep changing styles and they don't work as well as they used to. American Eagle and Aeropostale's boy briefs are next in line for me.

I usually wear thongs to work out due to the bunching/falling down/riding up issue. Or I wear running shorts with built-in underwear. I have no problem with those riding up or bunching, and they can't fall down as they are attached to the shorts! Lol. They are definitely a little weird at first, but really are a great option.

I wear thongs everyday and I find them comfortable to work in. Some of my running shorts have built in underwear, so I don't worry about underwear when I'm wearing those.
I'd go without any. As long as it's not super short shorts, there shouldn't be a problem.

I wish I could go without underwear. :) Unfortunately, having children has completely eliminated that option for me.

Thongs are an option, although I don't always find them too comfortable. I buy boybriefs from Aerie (American Eagle)...they're my "runnin' undies" as I call them, haha. They don't show through my tights or yoga pants, and they also don't bunch up or slip down like other undies have a tendency to do.

No underwear is most comfortable. Most fitness apparel bottoms are made to be worn without underwear.

I could honesty care less about panty lines, or showing, or anything. ;) I wear what's comfortable for me, and bedamned what anyone else thinks. I'm at the gym to work out, not win a fashion show!
Thongs are the way to go! I know it's personal preference but I find them much more comfortable than other types of underwear, they don't ride up (where would they go? LOL!) and there are never lines. I wear very fitted workout pants (Nike Legend Slim Fit) and nothing ever shows.
I know they sell yoga underwear at Victoria's Secret. They might sell them at other places as well. They are almost the same material as yoga pants, and they fit comfortably. I like to wear those when I'm working out.

Honestly, I prefer thongs when I work out. They don't bunch up, no panty lines, etc- it's like going commando, but you still have something so you don't feel totally exposed. I hardly notice they are there.

I either go commando or I buy the hanes microfiber
I make sure my underwear isn't too tight or too loose, which helps prevent "bunching". I think it's always a risk regardless, but if the fit is good it is less likely. I'm not a huge fan of going w/o but that's just me.
SO! How do you all deal with the whole underwear showing through fitted workout pants situation? This may be specific to my own (admittedly cheap) yoga pants. I mostly don't care-but the other day whilst kickboxing they got all bunchy and uncomfortable. Then I went sans underwear at yoga, but later wondered how much I was showing (will get the boyfriend to check later, haha). What would you all recommend?
