There’s A Pretty Gross Reason Why You Shouldn’t Ever Wear Underwear To Bed
Rejoice nudey sleepers!
There are two types of people in this world: those who love the snug, cosy feeling of sleeping in a fresh, fleecy pair of PJs and those who’d rather lie there buck naked in all their nudey glory when getting their shut-eye.
However, according to Gynaecologist Dr Alyssa Dweck one is markedly better for you body hygiene-wise.
Chatting to Shape she reveals that sleeping with your underwear on is actually pretty gross because if the vagina is “constantly covered – especially by a fabric that’s not moisture-wicking or absorbent – moisture collects.” The problem? “That’s a perfect breeding ground for bacteria or yeast,” Alyssa explains.
In short, you need to let your lady bits breathe every once in a while.
Not comfortable going fully nude when going to bed? “If there’s ever a time to break out the granny panties, this would be the time,” suggests Alyssa.
So it’s big, breathable panties for the win then, yeah? Got it.
