Clearly Christiana Guzman was on to something when she came up with the idea of vintage inspired cycling underwear for women as the project is already over funded on Kickstarter with 21 days to go. The chamois equipped undergarments are designed to be worn under every day clothing, but with the added comfort of a chamois. There are currently two models being offered based on the type of coverage you’re looking for.
Check out the different models after the break.
The Bettie is for the ladies that want to feel a little sexier while they ride. The sheer mesh sides, and ruching on the back give these panties a feminine touch. You definitely won’t feel like you are wearing your grandmother’s bike undies (huh? Just go with it). Betties are lower rise in the front and show a little more cheek in the back. They are great for those cute low waisted pants or shorts but there’s still plenty of coverage so you don’t end up with plumbers’ crack. The chamois insert is a thinner, triathlon style pad offering just that extra bit of comfort you need while you bike about the city. Great for shorter, lower impact rides.
The Brigitte is for women of all shapes and sizes. They are flattering and comfortable with a chamois insert thick enough to protect your precious lady parts from the pains of those longer urban rides. They are full coverage with a higher, ’50s style rise in the back. They are 100% discreet under any type of skirt, pant, or short you desire to wear. In lieu of elastic is an attractive stretch lace band to avoid muffin top (no thanks, right?). Great for spin class and daily commutes.
$50 gets you a pair of chamois panties of your choice, with quantity discounts available for larger orders. Get more information or order a pair or two for yourself on the Urbanist Kickstarter.
