Women’s fashion can be weird. Many ladies know the curse of having a hard time finding dresses with pockets, but it seems like every underwear has them. What’s the use of that little pocket between your panties? Of course, it’s not meant to replace pockets for other layers of clothing, right? It’s not that big, and let’s not talk about the logistics of how uncomfortable it would be to sit if you stored anything in there. So what’s the problem?
The gusset also has another function. Synthetic materials aren’t always comfortable, so think about how bare lace feels on sensitive skin – lace is a soft, comfortable place for your lady to protect against chafing.
Even if your fancy, synthetic panties have tabs, your best bet is an old pair of cotton panties. A small gusseted area can help, but overall breathability is still important.
Breathing is even more important if you are active throughout the day. If you think you’re likely to sweat, skip synthetic materials. This means that if you’re going for a run or going to the gym, you should wear cotton clothes if you don’t want to risk inflammation or infection. This is especially true if you are prone to bacterial problems down there. Fabric panties may not be as sexy as Victoria’s Secret lace underwear, but they are much more comfortable than yeast infections.
