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!

For most people who know me, know that I'm a pretty open book. But sometimes we all come to something that we don't feel we can talk about. I'm even creating this video, and I don't know whether it'll ever be seen. But I'm creating this video because I know R U OK Day is coming up, and for me it's important to share my story so other people do actually understand that there's struggles that no one will ever see.

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, alternatively we have a video taking you through each step.

Finding your size:

All you need to do is take 2 simple measurements; your 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.

Measurement 1: Your waist

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

Measurement 2: Your hips

Now wrap the soft measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, this is approximately 7 inches below your waist (see image to right). Use the mirror to check that your measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor – write this measurement down.

Example: If your waist is 78 cm and hips 104 cm we would recommend a size 12, however if you want a slight looser fit you may opt for a size 14.

ELC Size 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22
Waist Measurement (cm) 70 75 80 85 93 100 107 114
Hip Measurement (cm) 92 98 104 110 117 124 131 137
USA 4 to 6 6 to 8 8 to 10 10 to 12 12 to 14 14 to 16 16 to 18 18 to 20
UK 6 to 8 8 to 10 10 to 12 12 to 14 14 to 16 16 to 18 18 to 20 20 to 22
EUROPE 34 to 36 36 to 38 38 to 40 40 to 42 42 to 44 44 to 46 46 to 48 48 to 50
