We need to talk about toxic underwear. Okay, not in the way that your undies are likely to kill you, but some undies are seriously healthier than others.
I know, I know, Australia is on its 5th prime minister in 5 years and I'm talking about your knickers?! Believe me, if it wasn't an important conversation, I wouldn't bother you, but please hear me out. If you won't do it for me, do it for your privates, as they do have a preference of what you wear down below.
When you go shopping for undies, you probably first look at the colour and style (“is it sexy enough...? Stuff it, I won’t wear these ones on Friday night…” and then you almost always do). Then you might fit them to see if they feel good and sit comfy. But did you ever think about how the fabric of your underwear can affect your vagina health?
Think about those 5 for $30 lace underwear that you probably have in your drawer and wear day in and day out. Did you know this kind of underwear can trigger redness, dryness, itching, chafing and other skin irritation? And don't even get me started on the fact that wearing those fabrics can cause vaginal infections like thrush. Yup, those 5 for $30 ‘sexy’ underwear aren't so sexy after all.
I hear you thinking; ‘Well how do I look sexy, but also take care of my lady parts?’
The answer is simple: The healthiest underwear fabric to keep your hoo-ha happy is organic bamboo.
Bamboo underwear works with your anatomy, which makes it feel like a second skin and it is super soft.
Another amazing benefit of bamboo knickers is that they are breathable, moisture-wicking, antibacterial, antifungal, hypoallergenic and very durable, which helps to fight off common lady issues such as thrush, UTI’s and general irritation.
If you are not convinced to buy bamboo underwear by now but care about the environment, I have some more good news for you, bamboo is also very environmentally friendly.
Let me quickly sum up the sustainability benefits of bamboo - one of the most eco-friendly fabrics in the world.
- Bamboo is an extremely fast-growing plant and doesn't require any pesticides, insecticides and fertilisers to grow.
- Bamboo needs very little water to grow and is one of the most water-conserving resources on the planet.
- Bamboo also detoxifies the air we breathe which is beneficial for both your health and the environment.
So long story short: Choose sustainable bamboo underwear as it’s good for your vagina and the planet.
