With so many different fabrics on the market, the question of which to choose becomes ever so important. We are here to tell you today, that your choice for your new underwear should be made of natural fiber. It may surprise you, but a lot of fibers that underwear are made of are synthetic and man-made. It may equally surprise you just how many materials that underwear may be made of are natural fibers! If your underwear is from Male Power and is made of silk, bamboo, or cotton, they are most definitely natural fibers. We’re here today to tell you the full-on benefits of natural fibers and why your choice should be natural fibers.
Throughout your life you may have heard that cotton is the best, most breathable fabric but in recent years, bamboo has come around and given cotton a run for its money. Each of these three fibers have different attributes that make them the best, so depending on what you’re looking for in your underwear one of these fabrics might be better for you than others.
If you’re looking for your best everyday underwear, cotton may be your choice. The overall benefits of cotton are not only maximum comfort, but it will also keep you feeling fresh all day long. This is because cotton is naturally breathable and non-restrictive. Not only is there maximum breathability, but cotton wicks moisture away from the skin, which helps prevent bacteria from thriving. This may be a better option for you than man-made fibers, as they typically trap in more heat. All that to say, if you have sensitive skin or sweat a lot, you might want to save the specialty fabrics for special occasions when you need to look sexy. Keep in mind though, that if you wear cotton underwear when you work out, change immediately as it may be great at moisture wicking but can sometimes be slow to dry.
Like cotton, bamboo is naturally breathable and wicks moisture away from the skin. The way it differs is that bamboo fiber is often softer and tighter than cotton fabric. The big game changer? Bamboo fabric allows moisture to quickly evaporate keeping you breathable and dry all day. Bamboo also is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, thermal regulating, and odorless, all because of its natural properties. Additionally, if you’re someone who cares about the environment, bamboo is probably your best bet from a sustainability standpoint. Bamboo can often yield triple the amount as other natural fibers per acre as well as needing much less water to grow. Not only does it require less water, but it is extremely fast growing and can be continually re-harvested. If you’re looking for underwear that’s good for you and good for the environment, then bamboo is for you.
The most luxurious of the three we have spoken about today; silk fabric is surprisingly one of the strongest fabrics. Like bamboo, silk is naturally hypoallergenic so it is very unlikely to cause an allergic reaction when worn. Because of the natural protein structures, it’s very uncommon to have an allergic reaction to it. Unlike some synthetic fibers, silk does not need to be treated with harsh chemicals to attain the look and feel that we look for in a pair of sexy underwear, further limiting the risk of allergic reaction or skin irritation. Another characteristic that makes silk underwear so great, is that it’s season-less and can be worn year-round. It keeps you cool in the heat and warm in the cold because of how it works with your body’s temperature.
Silk has natural moisture wicking properties like the other fabrics we discussed. It pulls moisture away from the body to the surface of the garment and allows it to evaporate easily. Because of this, silk can keep you cool on even the hottest summer days. With its exceptional versatility, silk may be your new favorite fabric.
People often worry about making sure that what they put in their bodies is natural and harmless, but we think it’s time that you start worrying about what you put ON your bodies as well. Underwear is the fabric that stays closest to your body at all times, so why would you want something harmful so close to your skin? If you want to start wearing what’s best for your body, it’s time you look into natural fibers.
