Did you know that the type of underwear you’re wearing can affect your health?
According to Dr. Eden Fromberg, a New York City Gynecologist, “Vaginal health relies on an intricate ecosystem of microorganisms—[and] the fabric that underwear is made of influences this ecosystem in various ways.”
The main cause of infections are moisture, so when you are searching for your next pair of underwear, avoid overly tight styles that are made out of synthetic fabrics like nylon or lycra. These synthetic, unbreathable fabrics trap in heat and moisture which throws off the pH balance in your body.
Vogue editors recommend that you, "let the area breathe. Stay away from moisture-retaining synthetic fabrics and opt for organic cotton underwear, such as Skin’s organic cotton Lola Boyshort briefs." They are made out of organic pima cotton.
