5 Reasons Why Bamboo Underwear is Better than Cotton

We’re not sure if you can tell, but at Vee, we’re pretty obsessed with bamboo.

The world has had a longstanding love affair with cotton, but ladies, it’s time to make room for a new fabric to sweep you off your feet.

Here are a few reasons why bamboo fabric is our new ‘boo’ and why it should be yours too.


Cotton requires fertilizer and large amounts of pesticides in order to grow and be maintained for harvest. But because bamboo has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, it makes it completely resistant to insects and infecting pathogens. This means that bamboo can be naturally grown without the need for any pesticides or toxic chemicals. Think about that the next time your lady bits are cosying up to a pair of panties.


Not only does bamboo use one-third less water than cotton to grow, it also produces 35% more oxygen than most trees, while absorbing high levels of carbon dioxide. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and, as a bonus, is 100% biodegradable. So slip on a pair of Vee Bamboo Underwear. Your vagina, and the planet, will thank you.

A big softy

Enjoy a fabric that’s hyper aware of your sensitivities, ultra soft to touch and hypoallergenic. 

Let’s you breathe

One of the best things about your new bamboo boo is it lets you breathe. Bamboo fabric is known for its moisture wicking properties and is four times more absorbent than cotton. This helps air out your lady bits and remove any heat and moisture that gets built up in there throughout the day. 

Has your back (and bits)

Unlike cotton, bamboo has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. It transforms a regular pair of panties into a superhero, helping to fight off any thriving bacteria in the downstairs department. This will not only support your everyday hoo-ha health, it will also decrease your risk of fungal or yeast infections, UTIs and allergies.

It seems the only thing our favourite plant-based fabric can’t do is serenade you with a live acoustic love song... but that's the exception to the rule. 

Happy falling in love lovelies xxx
