Importance of Cotton in Panties
Did you know cotton underwear is the best to wear? It’s breathable and absorbent. Synthetic materials like nylon and spandex don’t allow the area to breathe. Instead, they end up trapping heat and moisture. Dr. Alyse Kelly-Jones, board-certified OB-GYN says “The vulva is a very sensitive and delicate area, similar to the lips on your face. You want to treat it gently.”
Aim to change your underwear every day. It seems like we typically wear one pair of underwear a day and then put it in the laundry to be washed. This may not always be necessary. Some doctors say that you can get away with wearing a pair of underwear two days in a row if there’s not much discharge or sweat. However, take caution – unlike jeans, underwear shouldn’t be re-worn just to save on doing a load.
