Attention men: Forget Victoria’s Secret. Active ladies need active undies, and this ensemble fits the bill and still looks cute. Made from thin, soft, 18-micron merino, with flat seams and no-chafe straps and waistbands, these unmentionables wick moisture, repel stink on multi-day trips, and just plain feel good.

The boy shorts are low rise, so they’ll stay hidden under her favorite jeans, and the sports bra has enough support for low impact activities for A-, B-, and C- sized chests. $35 each; women’s xs-xl; 5.64 oz. (ea); io-bio.com
