I cant find any information about my question. Do I need to wear underpants under my tri suit at ironman?

Nope.
Commando when wearing bike shorts, tri shorts, tri suits, etc. Please DO make sure that you wear a trisuit or something similar underneath your wetsuit!

Trisuits and tri shorts are made to dry out "on the fly", as you're biking. Underclothes with cotton would stay damp much longer and probably cause chaffing.

I do for comfort and my tri suit is somewhat see through.

Nike pro compression shorts.

Most tri shorts and suits have a modesty panel up front so your stuff isn’t visible. Wearing something underneath adds risk for chaffing.

No, you want to have direct contact as tri suites are designed to minimize chafing issues. Underwear will definitely cause issues...

People do it... but not me.

Cycling and triathlon shorts with chamois are designed to be worn without undies. If you are wearing straight compression shorts maybe it's not the same.

I'm very sensitive to the seams against my skin. I can take it for a little while and then it becomes an excruciating pain. Not everybody feels this way. For me there is no way I could add undies.

This is a super common question ... along with do I wear a sports bra under a tri suit. At the end of the day it's up to you.

I wrote a whole blog post about it. You can read it here. https://www.amysaysso.com/2019/06/27/what-do-you-wear-under-your-tri...
