TMI: Lingerie Edition
Dear lingerie lovers,
Lingerie for the most part while being popular and glamorous is often considered not polite conversation. That means it isn’t exactly a topic we would bring up casually in conversation or speak of loudly in public. Even with that, there are certain areas we mostly refrain from truly discussing and sideline for a personal conversation.
Whatever your personal feelings may be on the matter, it is important to note that these areas are just as important and should be spoken of more freely. I’m talking about the health aspects of lingerie and personal care.
Today we explore basic lingerie health guides. We all love to buy sexy lingerie occasionally, if we didn’t, we likely wouldn’t be on this site, but you know what isn’t sexy? A UTI. Yup. Although, these are common for many people and not a sign that you are unhygienic. It is still important to know these things and to keep our health at the forefront of our decisions. Here are three basic tips to keep in mind,
Buying a hundred percent cotton. This one goes out to all vagina owners. Regardless of gender, your lower region needs to breathe and the only material that does that perfectly is cotton. This means none of that varied percentages, you want a hundred percent cotton. For those who can’t say goodbye to their favorite styles, go for panties with a hundred percent cotton in the pubic area. This goes for your one-piece lingerie as well.
Buy it in your size. Shorts, panties, lingerie teddy, bras or shapers. Most lingerie is designed to be form-fitting, whether they are shapers or not. This means the lingerie cannot do its job or create the necessary effect if it is worn in the wrong size. This is more popular with bras and shapers where there is a myth that wearing a size smaller will either make your breast look bigger or create an even more impressive shaping effect. Not only does this decrease the shelf life of your lingerie it also leads to negative effects on your body.
Cleaning habits, while we are advised to hand wash our lingerie not many people have the time or patience for that. A light wash is allowed in a washing machine. However, under no circumstance should your lingerie be left in a dryer, this not only because it reduces the shelf life and functionality of your lingerie but also because it is not safe, I mean it could cause a fire due to the metal bars inside. Air drying lingerie is not only safer for the machine safety but also for personal reproductive health.
Remember, health is always the sexiest state of being.
