Spandex CAMEL TOE

Alright, here's the run down. Some of us enjoy going commando in spandex so there are no lines, however, I wanted to know if anybody had any tips on AVOIDING camel toe. So far I've been so good, but because of how I've been posing, walking, standing, I've had it in the back of my mind the entire time so I keep... well, apart HA!

Even wearing a stupid g-string shows, so did anybody have any advice?
By anybody, I mean females.

=)

There is underwear specially made so that the lines don't show. Have you tried those??

I've never tried a pair of them though, but they look like they would work for spandex. Victoria's Secret carries them, or Im sure you can find some at any dept. store. I think you want to look for "no lines" or "seamless" panties.

There are also special dancer undergarments, which are basically the seamless panties.

Try lace panties. Lace lies closer to the body than any fabric, and doesn't have a bulky seam on the edges because it doesn't need to be hemmed.

If all else fails, try cutting a piece of poster board into the right shape to use as a little pad of sorts to cover the vital bits. If you're adventurous, you could even try taping said board right to your skin over the problem area so you don't have to worry about the edges making a weird line by pressing out against the fabric.

wow... taping stuff to anything just sounds painful. I would recommend the seamless variety... the no show panties. I think even Wal*Mart has them.

Dancer's ones should come in both men's and women's sizes, I'm not sure about ones found in Wal-Mart.

Oh my goodness, going commando in a costume to avoid panty lines sounds like a bit much to me. Personally I normally go for seamless thongs from Victorias Secret, except for Molotov then I took a pair of boyshorts from VS cut off the back and replaced it with a nude mesh back. I also make my bodysuits so that there is no seam in the middle of the front, just on the sides and the back middle, and this seems to help too.

I tried this route, and you sure can see that lace!
My spandex is... well, SPANDEX! haha

Nah I have no problem being commando. I do it in regular clothes, too.
Thanks for that though!

The tape was a joke =P

But I'll scope out the seamless. My spandex is just THAT tight to where ANYTHING is shown.

A friend once told me to put a panti-liner in there. I haven't tried that because just the sound of it sounds uncomfortable lol
