Surprising Underwear Facts That You Don’t Believe It’s True

Underwear is something we put on every day, it provides the foundation to our overall attire experience. Male and female, underwear gives us protection and support to our important bits and protects our outerwear from soiling. Donning underwear has become a second nature habit and generally few of us give any thought to what we put on during the day or whether our underwear is fit for purpose or suited to the right occasion. Our underwear habits can speak volumes about personality and can have a marked effect on underwear production globally.

The following facts about underwear should give you some food for thought in underwear choices and habits and a head start in ensuring you are properly attired and healthy in mind and body.

Should You Sit In Satin?

Satin underwear is very pretty and essentially comes under that special occasion selection. However if your underwear is all satin then you need to be aware of the downsides that can occur from wearing the fabric. Satin is a non-breathable fabric and when those enclosed areas around anus, groin and genitalia get hot and sweaty a breeding ground for infections is created. Satin will not soak up the moisture so it stays put. Most panties will have a cotton gusset which will help to alleviate the problem, so do check them out before you buy. Bras too, especially if you suffer from boob sweat , can allow bacteria to thrive on the underside of the breast, which can cause sores to develop. Loose fitting satin camisoles are ok as they allow air between the fabric and the body. There is no need to ditch the satin, just keep it for those special occasions.


It’s A Match

Making sure you have a clean pair of panties on in case of the unexpected is one thing. Another is, as much as possible, to ensure you are wearing a matching bra and panties, or at least common in fabric and or colour scheme. Only a very small percentage of women (approx. 15%) wear matching underwear. How many times do you go out without thinking about it. We have a tendency to just grab the first pair of panties and bra that come to hand. Some may say that at least you are wearing some, however it is so much nicer to have something on that sembles a match, to make you feel properly dressed. It shows you have given some thought to your appearance. Next time you purchase new underwear also give some thought to what bras you already have at home and do your best to select panties that will look good with them.

What Sort Of Woman Are You?

Does the type of panties you wear give away the person you are? Research suggests that they can. If you wear white cotton panties you are low maintenance and down to earth. Put it to the test and check out the type of panties you have with the person you are. Perhaps you are high maintenance and wear frilly, lacy ones, or are a daring confident women in a thong. Style and colour all play a part in giving our personality traits away. Who knew that underwear could speak for us. If you are one of the lads, sporty or up for a laugh then boy shorts or boxers are for you. Bikinis suggest you are laid back. Are you a passionate red, or a joyful bright yellow, a peaceful blue or romantic pink? Our moods fluctuate so wear something that reflects your mood and if you want a change then just go change your panties.

In general, thongs put you at a higher risk for infections

In order for them to do their job, thongs usually fit pretty snug. When you combine the tight fit with the abrasive material they’re often made of (like lace), you have a pretty good equation that could equal infection. Dr. Ghofrany says frequently wearing them could increase your chances of developing one, especially if you’ve had infections down there before. “Thongs are not the most breathable type of underwear,” she says. “You want underwear that won’t trap moisture because moisture attracts bacteria.”

So while Dr. Ghofrany doesn’t urge everyone to toss their thong collection, she recommends toning it down a bit if they’re your daily go-to. This will give your lady parts a bit of a breather—literally.

Keeping Abreast Of Things

Bras keep breasts in check, enhance the appearance under clothing, provide support and help prevent back strain if you have large breasts. It is recommended that a bra should be replaced every 6 months to ensure you are getting the support you need. A new bra should be fastened on the first hooks, (the ones at the end). Once the bra is worn a few times, and elastic becomes less effective, you should then use the middle set of hooks and eventually the third set. Straps should be tightened to a point where they can only be lifted to an inch above your shoulders. The panel between cups should sit tight against your skin and should remain there when you lift your arms above your head. These steps will ensure you have a good fitting bra. If you have reached the point of using the third set of hooks you start to lose proper support and the bra has little or no effect and it is time to replace it.

Things To Consider When Buying Underwear

So, you need new underwear. Are you the sort of person who just goes out and buys the same as always or do you give more thought to this very important purchase? It is estimated that about 80% of women are wearing the wrong sized bra. What’s the point if it does not fit properly. A good bra outfitter will always provide a measuring service. Underwear should fit comfortably and correctly and serve the purpose for whatever reason you are buying it. For example, if you are wearing a tight fitting dress there is no point wearing bikini or midi’s, the last thing you want is a visible pantie line, better to go for a thong or shapewear. Materials can react to each other too and make clothes cling to your body, so bear in mind every aspect of your outfit. Make sure your purchases are appropriate and cater for the occasion. Underwear serves a purpose, so get it right.

Lucky In Red

Red underwear is for those feeling lucky because Italian women ring in the new years by wearing red underwear because it is considered lucky, and not just women, the men do it to. The same tradition happens in Turkey too. It seems that the wearing of red underwear wards off bad. In China, if the year you were born under (horse, pig, rabbit etc.), is happening, then you should wear red underwear for the entirety of that year. In Poland, students wear red underwear when taking exams, as a lucky charm after rumours spread that top grades were achieved by girls wearing red underwear. Red is a colour that protects you, which makes sense when you consider red for danger, not a wise idea to go near. It is superstition but if it helps then why not. On the one hand red spells danger but it seems that if you are feeling lucky then red underwear has the pulling power.

Single Measures

It is a fine line, but statistics say that ‘Singletons are much less likely to put on fresh undies that their married counterparts—82 percent versus 88 percent’. 1This applies to men more than women. So, is the reason simply to cut down on laundry or because single people are lazy, or because single people have no partner in life to impress? One theory in regards to men is that their mum used to go out a buy it for them, so getting into a routine of regularly buying new underwear themselves is a slow process and of course mum used to do the laundry. The downsides of not changing underwear daily are, and this goes for women as well as men, a build-up of bacteria, causing irritation or infection, increase in odour, yeast infection, and urinary tract infections (UTIs) such as cystitis. And remember what your mother told you about wearing a clean pair every day in case something happens to you.

The looser the better

When it comes to the fit of underwear, you obviously don’t want it drooping and falling off, but you should seek a fit that isn’t so tight that it’s leaving uncomfortable marks on your waistline. Aside from discomfort, tight underwear traps moisture, even more so when worn under skinny jeans or leggings—and you want that area to breathe! Dr. Ghofrany also recommends skipping underwear altogether at night. “I don’t advise going commando during the day under tight-fitting clothes, but letting your genital region breathe at night while sleeping can be beneficial,” she says.
