If you have spent years wearing underwear all day and all night, then you might want to hear some of the benefits of ditching the knickers.
After reading the benefits of not wearing underwear, we’re pretty sure you’ll be keen to give yourself some freedom downstairs.
1. Ditching the underwear increases comfort
There are some women who can’t bear the discomfort that comes with wearing underwear. If you don’t want to ditch it completely, try different cuts, styles and patterns, but if you can let it go, there’s nothing like it. After all, wouldn’t you want to feel comfortable? You could wear a long dress and toss your undies aside. No one will even know!
2. It helps to relieve dampness
Wearing underwear sometimes causes dampness, which eventually leads to discomfort. If you are someone who sweats a lot and experiences discharge, then ditching the underwear is a good idea. Even if you decide to skip the underwear and wear fitted pants, it’s not going to help.
3. Fall asleep faster, better
Skip underwear if you want an instant lull into dreamland, and a full night of uninterrupted sleep. In fact, consider skipping all clothes.
According to doctors at Healthline, the body’s ideal temperature for sleep is 65 degrees Fahrenheit. But even in cold weather, with underwear, pyjamas, your partner and a duvet, you might be too warm to drift off easily.
“Sleeping n.ak.ed can help the skin cool off faster, which may help lower body temperature and allow a person to get to sleep sooner,” Medical News Today said.
4. Reduces heartburn
Acid reflux is a fairly common disease but even if you have never had to deal with it, wearing tight underwear over a period of two weeks could trigger it.
However, it depends on how high your underwear reaches, meaning that high-rise and tight underwear, unlike hipsters, is more likely to squeeze your stomach and force stomach acid up your throat. When the acid settles there, expect an onset of heartburn.
5. Relief for butt acne
The aeration could do wonders for your bum skin pores. Butt acne is a symptom of folliculitis caused by clogged pores due to trapped sweat or friction.
Instead of rushing to get a remedy for these inflamed hair follicles, try skipping underwear and wearing loose clothing to support your sensitive skin.
6. It prevents yeast infections
Wearing tight underwear can also lead to vaginitis, which is quite troublesome. The infection causes itching as well as a white discharge like cottage cheese. It also causes trichomoniasis, which causes similar symptoms but is characterised by greenish-yellow discharge.
