    With everyone from Alexander Wang to Stella McCartney making athletic-inspired undies these days, it's easy to forget that the idea of sporty lingerie used to be sort of a mind-blower.

With the tagline “underwear, outerwear, anywhere,” VPL's become the gold standard in cheeky, color-blocked jersey underthings that double as sporty layering pieces (seriously — chicest yoga bra, ever).
