Whether you call them cheerleading bloomers, spankies or cheerleader briefs, this is one piece of equipment you cannot live without!
Cheerleading bloomers, generally referred to as "spankies" in cheer speak, are most often made of some combination of Lycra and polyester and will have the feel of spandex.
This is one of those questions that young cheerleaders always want to ask, but they can be a little embarrassed to do so in front of the entire squad: should you wear your underwear with your spankies?
To put it plainly, you are not really being modest if you have your underwear hanging out of your spankies.
With that said, some girls, especially those who are very new to cheerleading, find it very uncomfortable to wear spankies by themselves.
