Not to come across rude, folks, but why do you care about lines? Just curious to hear opinions.

Panty lines? I don't really. Although I typically get the no-panty-line panties to start with so... *shrug* :P

I never checked my butt in mirror (may be I have to do that), but panty line is usually the last thing that worries me in breeches.

Panty lines are really unflattering and make your butt look lumpy and definitely don't look good when you're riding (especially while posting). Well, *my* butt, anyway.

The tuffrider ventilated schooling tights are inexpensive and very lightweight, and I second (third?) the kerrits flow rise tights. I just wear a thong with my breeches/tights to prevent pantylines.

My favorite breeches are FITS. So comfy and I don't know how they do it, but great in all weather! The full seat version is the best.

It has to do with the show arena. Panty lines are incredibly noticeable in white and tan breeches or tights. I don't even come from a showing background and it was drilled into me by my instructor not to have them show. It is a huge, big, fat, NO.

As for why I care? Because I don't need some sicko saying, "Hey girlie, I can see your panties! ..*follow up with some gross pick up line*.." It has happened before, I don't want it happening again. And they show, even in tight jeans you can see them on people, so I buy underwear with the thought in mind of whether or not they will show beneath my skirts, my breeches, my jeans, my tights, etc.

Poor example but, it's like seeing women with large breasts never wearing bra's. You are going to notice. If you don't mind people noticing, fine, that's all on you. I don't want people noticing with me. I am very often on the receiving end of rude comments because I am young and approachable (meaning I'm not scary or angry looking enough to be left alone, like say, my husband is).

I'm with Kitten; who cares about panty lines. If you are comfortable, that's all that matters.

I know they say that the "cool" type synthetic fabrics are cooler than cotten, but I disagree. I hate the feel of synthetic material against sweaty skin. I prefer cotton. Boink makes a nice lightweight breech. They are cotton. They do not last a long time under hard usage, but they are very comfy.

Very much agree, tiny. I think cotton is overall is healthier and more breathable in sweaty weather.

I have to disagree, because in my experience it depends on breeches a lot , but I see what you are saying about shows. I was referring to just every-day riding.

I agree with tinyliny and kitten_Val, I prefer cotton breeches as well, cotton breathes better and feels better!
