The Compression Shorts Debate & North Moore Review

I love wearing compression shorts and I know many wear tights in colder climates.  The problem? It's difficult to keep your privates... well.. Private!

Many choose to wear shorts over them.  Others throw caution to the wind and stay comfortable.  When I turned to Facebook for answers, I discovered just how heated the debate really was! 

I asked a large group I follow, Trail and Ultra Running, what they thought. Shorts vs. No Shorts? The response was overwhelming! Since I posted the question, over 250 people have responded... and they continue to comment how the feel.


Some felt very strongly that shorts over the top are a must.  While tons of others claimed "letting the boys breathe" is the best alternative. But the majority were declarative in one thing. You shouldn't worry about what others think and you should wear whatever you like, however you want!

So why did I even bother asking the social media world for fashion advice?  I've always worn a thin pair of shorts over my compression wear. Never gave it another moments thought... until I tried on the new North Moore compression shorts from Wola-Co.  I realized I loved them too much to want to hide them! 


Full disclosure, Wola-Co did provide me with a pair to review, but these thoughts are my own. And it was in my review of them that prodded me to research more this controversial men's fashion debate! 

There have actually been some great articles and blog posts written on this very topic.  The two that stood out to me were one from Runner's World... and another from Runblogger.com.

I've always been on the side of modesty in this debate... but with the Wola-Co shorts, I realized they made me want to show em off! 

I loved the color, loved the fit, and even more... the convenient pockets!  




Don't want to take my word for it on the North Moore shorts? They're Kickstarter campaign launched two days ago... and they've already reached their goal funding!  Now that says a lot.  People love these shorts!

How do you get your hands on a pair? Go back them on their Kickstarter (check out the video below) and get in on the sweet deal!  It only lasts until the end of the month so I suggest you check em out while you can! I've already backed them, not just to get another pair.. but because displaying how much I love these shorts is something I'm definitely NOT modest about! 


So it looks like my stance on the debate has been shattered, all thanks to the North Moore Shorts and Facebook.  If you see me running and notice I'm proudly sporting the compression... and nothing else.  At least now you'll know why. ;-)

Now tell me what YOU think.  Would you wear these under anything else? Or would you sport them proudly for all the see? Tell me where you stand on this debate in the comments below!

  2. I had always kinda wondered what the "proper" way to wear compression shorts was. I don't personally wear them but I just assumed that they were supposed to be without shorts. But yea, I agree that you should just wear what you want. Happy running!

  3. I have tried wearing compression shorts and I love wearing them when I run. They stop from chaffing and hold my muscles together which helps them from becoming fatigue quickly.

  4. I enjoy wearing compression shorts when I bike. It helps with chafing and doesn't make me stick to the bike seat as much.

  14. Wearing pantyhose is beneficial for both boys and girls. It is better to wear pantyhose on long trips for sports or work. It is more comfortable in winter. Some fashionable manufacturers make pantyhose for men. If you don't know how to choose and buy men pantyhose suitable for men's wearing than I suggest you read this article.

  15. I love wearing my nylon elastane tights with nothing under or over. If I wear a singlet to just cover my man bits I am fine. I also wear the ladies panty hose thin stretched weave . around the top of the thighs they are slightly thicker and look like shorts. Of course there is a bulge and in all honesty I am proud of my package and if you got it flaunt it I say. sick of the debate and all the people going ewwww. When i run I often have a dozen or so girls staring and oggling and wondering. some in sheer disbelief and in awe of my confidence. Being a sports exhibitionist means in spandex you can get away with alot. I also teach in these and the young college girls all admire my brazzeness . I think I may have stretched the boundries of decency on occassions but no one's complaining . I get wolf whistled, whoops claps cheers and positive comments . Girls love it and I feel like I am doing my bit. how many times do we see great butts running past with a thong or G string on and black stretched fabric revealing a very nice ass, to this end I feel confident that if we push the boundries men can feel free to express themselves and run bare and emboldened . we have buges and some have big packages and we should be out there proudly being who we are. many girls stop and chat and pretend to be interested in my tights when really all they want to do is check me out some more. I get incredibly turned on running in sweaty tight clingy tights going commando there is no where to hide if you are sporting a boner.
