Going commando, yes or no?

We’ve all considered it at one point or another; when you suddenly realize you need to do some serious underwear laundry … is it worth just going commando? EmpressBody has done the research for you and looked into the benefits of wearing underwear and the benefits of tossing those panties out of the window and being underwear-free for optimal yoni health. We’ve also put together a couple of extra EmpressBody recommendations to keep your yoni feeling healthy and fresh!

The low-down on going Commando:

People have been arguing about the benefits of being underwear free and most agree that it’s a great idea to go commando in bed. Depending on your yoni’s pH and susceptibility to BV or yeast infections, going commando can help you get over thrush faster and prevent reoccurrence.

Wearing underwear can help moisture build up creating a warm, moist environment for bacteria to thrive, so going commando can be good for you!

But if you’re not comfortable feeling naked down there, you could try wearing a looser garment but make sure to wash it regularly.

But if you prefer panties, here are a couple pointers for the underwear-savvy:

1. Cotton, cotton, cotton

There are a lot of styles of underwear out there and lots of different fabrics to choose from too. The general rule of thumb is; the cheaper the underwear the higher the likelihood that they’re made from synthetic materials … and that’s not good for your yoni.

Cotton is breathable and absorbent, this means – less build up of bacteria and … you guessed it, yeast infections (again).

2. Change your undies regularly

It seems obvious, but changing your underwear regularly will reduce any discomfort caused by yeast infections, moisture or chaffing from synthetic materials. Changing your panties will also help you combat any issues linked to yoni odour.

3. Invest in some hypoallergenic soap

All types of underwear should be handled more gently then the rest of your wardrobe because they sit up against your more sensitive skin area for long periods of time. Toxins from the soap in your soap can build up and cause problems like yeast infections, rashes, BV and more.

4. Treat yourself to new undies!

Sounds a bit excessive, especially for something that gets washed so regularly. But according to the Good Housekeeping Institute, even clean underwear can contain up to 10,000 living bacteria.

This is because there’s bacteria in washing machine water — about one million bacteria in just 2 tablespoons of used water! Further, about 83 percent of “clean” underwear contains up to 10,000 bacteria.

EmpressBody recommends: sensitive, organic products to go with your new underwear habits!
