HOW TO CHOOSE UNDERWEAR THAT IS HEALTHY FOR YOU

how to choose underwear that is healthy for you

SO MANY OPTIONS? HOW TO CHOOSE A HEALTHY ONE?

There are so many options out there when it comes to underwear. Most of us just grab the pair off the shelf that catches our eye and fits. But there must be a better way! You might be asking yourself, how to choose underwear that is healthy for your body? If you could, would you rather be in underwear that’s actually helping, healthy and also cute for your body? I think most if not all people would say yes, right?

HEALTHY DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO FORFEIT CUTE

Keep in mind healthy underwear does not mean you don’t get cute options. It’s good for you, and can look good too! So pretty much the opposite of vegetables; good for you, but usually doesn't taste so good 😉

SYNTHETIC MASS PRODUCED PRODUCTS

A lot of mass-produced clothing using synthetic materials don’t allow our bodies to transfer heat effectively and trap bacteria and odours. It’s not hard to identify which articles of clothing these are, just go through your laundry hamper and the smell test will hit the mark. 👃🏽Many people these days are switching to 100% cotton and bamboo textiles due to the many benefits to our body’s health! When we choose cotton and bamboo we get clothing that stays fresh and hygienic all day!

BAMBOO FABRIC DOES MORE THAN JUST HELP KEEP YOU COOL

Bamboo is such a great material to make clothing with because its cross-section fibres allow micro-gaps to release heat and moisture, the usual culprits for creating bacteria and bad odours.

IT'S A HEALTH ISSUE, NOT A SMELL ISSUE

For a lot of women, this is a health issue, not a smell issue. You want to keep good ventilation in your underwear to prevent bacterial infections. The bamboo plant also contains a very cool anti-bacterial bio-agent called “Bamboo Kun”. This not only means the plants don’t need to be sprayed with pesticides during the farming process, the bamboo clothing it produces retains this anti-bacterial quality.

SOFT LIKE SILK

Bamboo is also very soft and comfortable like silk. The material is also naturally hypoallergenic, which is great for those that have reactions to different textiles. This makes it one of the least irritating materials for sensitive skin. Bamboo also doesn’t require the same chemical treatments that other textiles receive so it doesn't irritate the skin. Some people have been known to find hemp or other textiles to have a sharp and irritating feel on the skin.

THE OLD CLASSIC COTTON


There is good reason cotton has been such a staple of the textiles industries of the world for hundreds of years! Like bamboo, organic cotton is truly a gift from nature. It keeps your body cool with a nice thin layer between the fabric and your skin. Most t-shirts these days are largely made of regular cotton which is produced with the use of pesticides and chemicals. Just like our food, when we produce without the use chemicals we see huge health benefits. The difference is extremely noticeable. Trade that regular cotton blend for a certified organic cotton shirt and your skin and body will thank you.

KEEP YOUR NETHER REGIONS DRY AND COOL

When shopping for quality cotton underwear it's important to see that the company adheres to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This will mean you're getting certified organic cotton. GOTS is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. So when we opt for a pair of cotton underwear we know that we are keeping our nether regions dry, cool, and hygienic as well. The other reason certified organic cotton is so great is that it is also hypoallergenic. Most people don’t realize that their irritations to the clothing they wear could be avoided if they just sought out certified organic cotton. Just because it says cotton on the tag does not mean it will have all the benefits of certified organic cotton! SHOP OUR BAMBOO/COTTON BLEND UNDIES NOW
