Oh, I had a pair of gray running tights…before my friends told me why one should not wear gray running tights: Gray doesn’t hide crotch sweat. Like at all.
You gotta wonder why they even make them.
It’s such a bummer because I keep seeing fun colors in stores, but then I think Do I want to look like I peed my pants after I run? There’ve been a couple of times I thought way too long about the answer to that question.
So, just say “no” to gray tights…or pink…or blue…or purple…unless you plan on wearing a skirt over them.
Just a friendly public service announcement. Have a great evening!
I have 3 pairs of running capris from INKnBURN that are not black. One is black/white striped, one looks like robot and one is denim print. Neither of them show crotch sweat, even when running 40 miles in them. I think the quality of the product is a bigger determining factor than the color alone. I have seen MANY black tights with huge post run crotch sweat stains.
You are probably right!
I think this exact same thing every time I want to buy the cute capris at Marshall’s.
Man, they had some fun bright pink ones. If they’d been a little cheaper, I’d have purchased them anyway just to go under skirts.
I always wear shorts over my running tights 😉
I tend to wear a skirt for modesty purposes anyway. I don’t know if I could do shorts over tights. Seems confining. 🙂
Yeah I have had this same situation and didn’t discover it until after a hard workout at a very crowded gym. Mortification was complete.
So funny! I actually have gray running tights and they don’t show the sweat too bad. Maybe it’s because I only run in them when it’s really cold and I don’t sweat much in those conditions? Or I just don’t notice it and people are secretly laughing behind my back;)
