Product Review: UA Seamless Shorty

Posted Nov 09 2012 11:57am
When I got contacted by Under Armour and asked if I would be willing to review a product I was immediately interested. I own one UA Running skirt, that I purchased myself, and love it...especially the words of power on the inside of the waistband...but that is another post.

The UA Representative was a doll and asked what items intrigued me. I gave her a list of a few and simply asked, "surprise me!". I was afraid she would insist I make a firm decision but she immediately "played" along with me and in no time my little surprise arrived. That means a lot since I live in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

I was excited to receive not one, but two pairs, of their Seamless Shorties. Now since I am a running mom, and host a running blog, I am not about to model these UA underwear for you but I will tell you, I like them. And perhaps love them. And here's why.

If I had my choice I would spend all day and night in my running skirts. I honestly am very comfortable in them and yes, some are better for running long and some for short runs or comfort. So when I can't be in my running clothes I want to be equally comfortable.

I say I am not a girlie-girl mainly because I don't take the time to fuss too much with doing my hair, nails (and never my fingernails), or putting on make-up. Occasionally I may spritz on some body mist or perfume and even less frequently I put on a nice fancy dress and heels. But in all reality, I do like to feel "pampered" and like a lady at times. And the UA Seamless Shorty makes me feel that way as they are nice and silky and feel like a gentle hug. Score 1!

Recently I have been liking the boy short design a bit more too perhaps because it reminds me of the shorts under my running skirts. Perhaps because it provides a bit more coverage if a short skirt does an oopsie in the windy harbor I work at (and that doesn't happen but it is nice to know I am covered). But one main reason is due to that darn rash on my tailbone that breaks out from time to time, especially in times of stress. Anything rubbing against it can be annoying and painful.

They say every dark cloud has a silver lining and I guess that is true. As much as I dread outbreaks of the rash I was "fortunate" to have one when testing the UA Seamless Shorty . Not the worst outbreak but still bothersome and I can say, I could wear the Shorties in comfort. Score 2!

How do they work for coverage? I can't give them an A+ since they do ride up some but perhaps that is because I just have curves and things need to be snug to stay put. But I feel the gentle fit is great for other reasons - comfort and no panty lines. And this is equally important and being able to wear the Shorties under a sundress with no lines is indeed a Score 3!

Under Armour's mission is to "make all athletes better" and although the shorties do feel nice I would not recommend them for any athletic performance, just due to the riding up issue. But hey, being an athlete isn't just about performance but also about how you take care of yourself "off the field" and perhaps it is just as good to feel better between runs!
