through their underwear. These pieces of clothing have
direct and regular contact with your vagina so not
paying them enough thought might cause you to do
Here are 4 underwear rules you must follow.
1. Do not wear thongs to bed
Stick to briefs and boy shorts and avoid wearing thongs
while sleeping. Bacteria can spread and pass to the
vagina via a thong that can lead to vaginal infections.
If you are wearing, briefs ensure that you do not wear
tight briefs while sleeping.
2. Stick to cotton underwear
When it comes to fabrics, cotton can be your best bet.
The fibre can work well to keep your vagina feeling
fresh all the time. Cotton can wick away moisture and
discourage any yeast growth. However ensure that you
do not wear the same pair of cotton underwear to bed
that you have been wearing all day, as this, in turn,
increase the risk of yeast infection.
3. Wear seamless panties
The elastic bands that are too tight can be downright
irritating while sleeping. When you twist and turn in
sleep because of discomfort, all the rubbing can cause
abrasions that could be deep enough to cause darkening
and permanent scarring of the skin. Opt for seamless
styles panties as they are most comforting on your
skin. Opt for cotton undies that have a stretchy lace
at the seams which means no visible underwear lines
and no elastic bands. A total win-win situation.
4. Avoid old and dirty underwear
Also, if your underwear is old, the elastic band in your
underwear can potentially give you a rash called
contact dermatitis. So ensure that you dispose of the
old ones. Dirty underwear can carry up to a gram of
faecal matters so ensure that you always wear clean
underwear. In fact, you should change your underwear
twice a day.
