    Underwear for riding with no chamois

    Can anyone recommend some compression shorts to wear under my baggy shorts? I have several pairs of under armor and various other brands, but they all have seams right under where my sitbones contact the saddle, causing a bit of chaffing after about an hour of riding. Really just looking for something with no seams in the butt/crotch area.
    Somersaults... that's how I roll.

    I wear SAXX. Ill have to check and see if there is a seam on them as Im really not sure. They arent compression shorts but they hold the goods up in place just fine. They have a sort of "pouch" or netting on the sides. Favorite underwear by far.

    I can't tolerate a chamois anymore. Even the thin ones are too bulky and hold too much moisture, leading to major chafing in our hot AZ climate. Thin lycra-like underwear under baggies for me. Brands that work for me include Duluth Trading Armachillo, Reebok, and Adidas. All have a gussetted crotch with a panel under the taint area and seams off to the side. All work equally well but I like the feel of the Reeboks material best.

    Reeboks are my favorite but cheeks get chaffed. I have done fifteen mile runs with no creams in them without an issue. Endura trekkit is my go to on the trail. I find the only time I chaffe is if the shorts are a bit snug around my calves.

    I think I've found your problem.

    I like Tesla's mus17 compression short. I can't post a link from amazon app, but they are $10-14 and on prime. I have only ordered my regular size. They fit well and provide light compression when worn under riding shorts, but the vendor states to size down if you want more compression.

    I just came across Cariloha underwear and noticed the seams are different from my Under Armor and Ex Officio. They look like they may be what you need:

    Try the Patagonia thin boxer briefs. I wear them in hot days and they work great.

    Duluth Trading Buck Naked Boxer Briefs. Not compression but excellent wicking and most importantly, no uncomfortable seams.
    I like the longer ones. Just like bike shorts.

    I only ride with 2xu compression underwear and baggies these days. Definitely more expensive than other brands, but they have excellent compression and do a great job wicking away sweat. No seams and I've used them for rides over 7 hours. If you take care of them they last a long time so you save $ in the long run.

    I have used a variety of synthetic boxers and boxer briefs and not had any issues at all.
    Safe riding,
