If your saddle fits you well, it shouldn't cause crotch irritation. my old saddle, that I dearly loved and gave a very close contact feel, was just not shaped for my pelvis and I always ended a long day of riding with "road rash". now, with my current Dressage saddle, this is never an issue.

Some ladies have used a feminine pad to help, though honestly, I don't understand how the seams in u-wear can be uncomfortable there. There are no seams "there" - at least not in any u-wear I buy.

My problem isn't the crotch area it's butt chaffing. Maybe that's why the VS panties worked for me. They stick to my butt but not to my pants so I don't get the rubbing. Hope you find a solution that works well for you.

My main problem is irritation in the crease of my leg, right when the fabric ends. I've ridden in box brief-type underwear this past week and it seems to help that issue, since the fabric goes beyond that area, down to about mid-thigh. I tired twice riding in a thong, and, well, let's just say, you know where that fabric ends, and it was very unpleasant.

"unpleasant" Poor girl.

Yes, the boxer/man style briefs should help for sure with that specific area. Also the type of material - one of my kids can only wear nylon or silk boxers - anything slippery - or he has chaffing happening too.

Yes, poor me, indeed!

I've been sticking with the combo of the compression shorts/boxer-briefs and some Anti Monkey Butt and seem to be doing better. I still think I'm going to invest in better bike shorts, though, as a Saturday ride following my Saturday morning long bike ride still proves to be troublesome.

I used to get rubs and irritation on the crease where the fabric ends as well. I found out it was an issue with dryness. I had mild dry skin along that seam and now use a coco butter lotion every day to keep the dryness at bay. I haven't had any issues since. :)

Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.

Regular bikini underwear has never rubbed me, ever. HOWEVER, I once rode in thong underwear, very uncomfortable, won't make that mistake again.

My trainer suggested yesterday that it might be my saddle. It's the only saddle I've ever used, so I really don't know the difference. She said it appears to fit me well, but it could be the cause of the irritation. Perhaps I should start looking for something else.

Funny you should mention this - I use coco butter every morning as a matter of course on a surgery scar, but I've never though to apply it directly to the irritated areas. Maybe I'll give this a try!
