Which underwear fabric to choose, when you need to get some air – down there!

We all wear it every day, but have you ever stopped to think about how your choice of ladies lingerie could be affecting your health? It’s not something we tend to talk about, but the fabric that your underwear is made of can have a serious impact on your vaginal health, and your general mood – so it’s time to take your women’s lingerie seriously!

In this blog, we’re sharing our go-to underwear fabric to keep your lady-parts happy, every day!

Our founder Danielle has spent many years trying and testing out different underwear fabrics to find the most comfortable and breathable underwear to wear. And not only has she road-tested just about every fabric you can imagine, she has also done countless hours of research into the features and benefits of pretty much every fabric you can imagine. And you know what? It’s paid off! She has created a range of ladies lingerie that is pretty special. Want to know why?

Our Everyday Lingerie Co pieces are made of a fabric that is naturally:

  • Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Breathable
  • It keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter
  • It’s static and wrinkle free
  • It’s seriously durable and will stay in perfect shape, wash after wash

Have you guessed which fabric we’re talking about yet? It’s bamboo – a wonder fabric like no other!

It’s time to ditch the irritating undies in your drawer that don’t last and quickly lose shape! Including styles made with lace, it just causes irritation and chaffing – and who needs that in women’s lingerie?!

Don’t get us started on the gym gear that doesn’t allow you to breathe like bamboo - they just make you sweaty and smelly and can lead to serious health issues like thrush and UTIs.

We don’t want to get too personal, but if you are prone to yeast infections, keeping your vagina dry is seriously important – as yeast tends to thrive in warm, wet environments. Bamboo fibre is breathable and helps allow any moisture down there to quickly evaporate, drawing it away from the skin. Win!

Have we convinced you? It’s time to shop our latest collection – you (and your vagina) will thank us later!

Finding out I was pregnant was one of the most exciting times in my life. I will always remember the day.  We had decided a couple of months back to leave it in the universes hands to see what happened, and sure enough within 8 weeks I was pregnant, but at the time I was unaware.

Sizing

Trying to find the right underwear size can be difficult due to different companies making different sizes. To make things easier we have created a step by step guide to take the guess work out of the equation.

Below we have measuring instructions with images to assist you.  

Finding your size in our Underwear Range:

All you need to do is take a couple of simple measurements; your waist, your lower waist and your hips. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.  If possible stand in front of a mirror when taking your measurements to ensure that the measuring tape is also parallel to the floor and is flat.

Measurement 1: Your waist

Your waist is the natural in indentation above your hips or just below your rib cage (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down.

Measurement 2: Your Lower Waist

Your lower waist is approx. 12cm down from your waist.  Take your measuring tape and run this down from your waist to 12cm (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around this area firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down.  

Measurement 3: Your hips

Now wrap the soft measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, this is approximately 25cm below your waist (see image). Use the mirror to check that your measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor – write this measurement down.

 

 

Finding your size in our Crop Top Bralette Range:

All you need to do is take a couple of simple measurements; your Full Bust and your Lower or under bust. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.

Measurement 1: Your Full Bust

Your Full Bust is the fullest part of your bust (see image). Ensure that the measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor. Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down

Measurement 2: Your Lower or Under Bust

The Lower or Under bust is measured by wrapping the measuring tape around your rib cage directly under your bust (see image). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down
