French company Thuasne Sport has released a range of seamless sports underwear called TooSkin.

Thuasne (pronounced too-arne) claims that the stitch-free knickers and bras will keep you comfortable in the saddle, be invisible under jodhpurs and shirts, and “feel like a second skin”.

Moisture wicking fabric aids evaporation of perspiration, reducing chances of chafing and saddle sores.

And the bra’s moulded cups and anatomically designed back are said to reduce upward and outward “bust bounce”.

The underwear, suitable for all sports in which underwear can restrict movement and cause chafing, is available in white, black and beige.

TooSkin pants, sizes small to XL, are £23.95 and the support bras, sizes 30A to 38C, are £49.95
