Where do you guys get your running briefs/tights from?

I bought some cheap pairs from Aldi but they chafe where the seam is.

Various places for me, including Aldi.  You could always get the expensive ones like Skins or 2XU, but I have Slazenger from Woolies, Nike fron the Nike Store, and I think there is a Puma one in there too.

I use 2XU and have one pair that chafe on the seam, so expensive ones are not a guarantee of zero chafing.  A bit of Body Glide in the area seems to fix the issue

Thanks guys. So to summarise:
  • There is no correlation between price and comfort.
  • Lube up more.

Agreed. No perfect correlation between price and comfort but you've got a greater chance of success with more expensive options.

it probably depends - are you wearing tights to:
  • reduce thigh chafage, perhaps as alternative to lube
  • as 'minimal' attire or
  • for compression / performance reasons?
Personally I wear onbe mostly for #1 and I'min the market to atm, my pair are wearing pretty thin so interested in recommendations...
