While I'm enjoying gorgeous weather now, summer usually starts in my area around April. I'm trying to find hot weather clothing appropriate for running 10k or more, preferably with a lot of UV protection built in. The two most urgent  items I need are moisture wicking underwear and socks, so as to prevent foot yuck and groin irritation.

 

Once I'm at my target weight, I'll start investing in more pants and shirts, but I have enough to get me through the next few months at least.

If you have a Mountain Equipment Coop or similar (Sail, REI) nearby, they often carry moisture-wicking gear for hiking, running, etc. I know Under Armour does a line called HeatGear that's for hot weather, but I don't know if it includes underwear/socks

I am pretty large in all regards, so I just barely can use Under Armour pants, but unfortunately haven't been able to use those bras since 2002. Panache has great bras in hat sizes, but the search for plus sized active underwear continues.

I've had good luck in the past with underwear from Ex Officio but I dont like ALL their models (some the fabric is weird texture and easy to see under workout wear..WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS WHY?!) They are nice and wicking. I liked the "classic" line of the Give-n-Go stuff, but the sport mesh ones were the ones you can see under literally everything because texture. It looks like they come in up to a 2XL. Not sure what size you need but if that would work for you it's worth checking them out!

 

Editing to add: my number one recommendation is no cotton anything because that will equal swampy nether regions. Ugh. (Which sucks because I don't like poly/wicking underwear/ I feel cotton is better breathing but like...not for when I KNOW I am going to be drenched in sweat!)

Sorry about making an assumption about brand sizing - I have a hard-to-find bra size at the small boobs extreme so I am in the bad habit of assuming that if a brand stocks stuff that fits me, they'll fit anyone and that's obviously not the case. My bad.
