Why You Should Not Wear Any Underwear To Bed At Night
Do you want to be healthy?
Kindly follow this step?
One of our fears with sleeping totally n*ked is that should something terrible happen (touch wood), we can’t think of much worse than a paramedic, police officer or fireman arriving on the scene to find us completely starkers.
Therefore, many of us sleep in pyjamas in winter, and underwear in summer. However it turns out the latter could be doing more harm than good.
According to health professionals, going commando at night is necessary to let your nether regions “breathe” and to avoid infection.
“I often tell my patients to sleep without underwear,” Dr Alyssa Dweck told Shape. “If [the area] is constantly covered – especially by a fabric that’s not moisture-wicking or absorbent – moisture collects, [creating the] perfect breeding ground for bacteria or yeast.” In spite of this, one study found that only 18 per cent of women go pants-less for bed, the magazine reported.
If you can’t forgo the undies for the night, Dweck recommends wearing a loose-fitting cotton pair. “If there’s ever a time to break out the granny panties, this would be it,” She Said. The same rationale goes for men, who are just as prone to bacterial infection down there – but there’s also another factor at play for those trying to conceive.
