By now, you're probably a pro at purchasing sneakers. You've found the perfect pair of squat-proof leggings. And you're a master a selecting the right sports bra for your workout. But have you ever given much thought to the underwear you chose to workout in?

Aside from wanting a pair that isn't going to ride up while you run or cut into your skin in all the wrong places, you also want them to be made from the right kinds of fabrics to maintain good vagina health.

Wearing the right kind of underwear while you exercise can play a huge role in helping you avoid a painful yeast infection as MD and Ob-gyn, Kameelah Phillips, previously told POPSUGAR. "It's moisture-wicking whereas some of the other fabrics keep an already moist area more moist, and are a nice home and breeding ground for bacteria and yeast infections."

It's recommended that you wear undies made from more natural fabrics like cotton, bamboo and nylon, and not just ones with a cotton lining as these tend to shift around while you work out. While these are all good options to wear to your next workout, it's still recommended that you change your underwear post-workout.

Below, we've rounded up a few of the best options you can invest in before your next workout.
