Okay, so this tip is mostly for the ladies, but it could apply to you gents as well. We’re about to get a little personal, but I hope you’ll stick with me because I love this tip, courtesy of a friend of mine. She told me about this about three years ago and I haven’t turned back since.
What’s one of the best things about getting into your PJs at night, ladies? Taking off our bras, right? I know not everyone does this (I’m looking at you, Carrie Bradshaw!), but I believe most women do.
So then I ask you, why not your underwear as well?
Hear me out: many of us sit all day, have our legs crossed, wear underwear with synthetic fabric (great when working out, not so great after), have on tight pants (hello skinny jeans!) or tights. Think about the lack of air circulation. That’s prime breeding ground for all kinds of yucky issues we don’t want going on down there.
Forgoing underwear may pose an issue if you sleep in only a top. Or perhaps it’s no issue at all and you don’t have a problem flying free. I personally like to have something covering my lower half. It it’s hot and I’m only wearing a tank to bed, I will put on loose cotton underwear. In the winter or months I’m not sweating like a pig, I’m usually in pants or shorts, so no problemo letting it breathe.

Of course, you may ask about what to do during “that time of the month.” Sure, I definitely wear underwear on most nights as a necessity. But as soon as I don’t need to, they come right back off.
Thankfully, I’ve never been one to have issues down there, but I do feel this has made the whole area “healthier,” if you will. If you tend to have some issues, I believe this may really help. I dare you to try it. It’s as liberating as taking off that bra at the end of the night. 🙂
Questions: I won’t get too personal and ask if you currently do this (though feel free to share if you’re comfortable), so let me ask if you would consider doing this. Do you love getting into your PJs at the end of the day as much as I do (or is that just a dumb question, because why wouldn’t everyone)? Any health tips you’d like to share for “down there”?
