    Ladies: undergarment dilemma

    I canít believe I am sharing this, but here we go:

    Conventional undergarments must be removed before entering the hammock for comfort reasons, especially because of wires.

    What do you do with it?

    I had been hanging it from my ridgeline, but Iíve decided that that is outside my comfort zone because of privacy (especially when I am camping in a group, which seems frequent).

    I have been entertaining the idea of a gear hammock to hold my shoes, but I donít want to use that because I donít want said undergarment touching the shoes and getting damp from damp shoes.

    All of my sports undergarments are high impact, so they are too heavy duty to just wear all night comfortably.

    I have been thinking about getting a yoga style bra that I could actually just sleep in (and wake up nearly dressed!!!).

    What do you do? Thoughts appreciated.

    My go to hiking bra. I have a defect in my chest that makes underwire almost impossible and these are so comfy. If they are damp because of hiking during the day they're small and discreet enough to shove in your dry clothes or in the bottom of your sleeping bag

    Why not just toss it up in a peak bag?

    Ladies: undergarment dilemma

    Maybe I could sew a special undergarment bag for my ridgeline. It would have to be fabulous.

    But what I really want is something comfortable enough to sleep in.

    CustomFlexFit sounds like it hits all the check marks.

    No chance I could sleep wearing one. In warm weather, I have worn Prana dresses with built in soft bra with no problems. Otherwise it's hanging from my ridgeline.

    Unless itís been really hot and sweaty all day, I sleep in the sports bra I wore, or I switch out to a clean one and let that one dry on my ridge line. I never wear underwires, I gave those up years ago.
    If Iím solo or with gals, I donít wear any bra to sleep, just my sleep shirt.

    I throw it over the ridgeline and let it air out. I don't sleep with one on. If I felt like putting it over the ridgeline was perhaps too public, I would go with a peak shelf as Flash Grundelore suggested.

    I throw the hiking bra over the ridgeline and put on an ultra comfy sports bra for sleeping.

    I usually use a yoga-style bra that is OK to sleep in, but I don't need much support... not a practical solution for the more well-endowed among us.

    Peak bag sounds like a good call... maybe even mesh to allow overnight drying? But I have no shame, and would be fine slinging the ***-sling over my ridgeline.

    If you make a fabulous undergarment ridgeline bag, you have to post pics!

    Never occurred to me to use a ridgeline. I wear underwire, can't stand to be without my U.Wires. I wear fresh delicates every morning, so I put them where they are easy to reach.

    I have an antique cotton I wear to sleep in. I have a defibrillator that protrudes a lot plus both shoulders are pinned in place, so sypport is manditory.

    I Use the pocket at the head of my RR. For my bra I will put on in the morning. With my BB the fresh garment goes in the shelf.
