When considering the types of underwear that can potentially lead to yeast infections, silk doesn’t typically top the list. Like other natural fibers such as cotton and merino wool, silk tends to breathe. This means that wearing silk underwear shouldn’t really pose a problem, especially if you ensure that they are kept clean and changed frequently.
However, it’s important to be wary of underwear made from artificial fibers like nylon or polyester. Such materials don’t breathe well and can lead to increased warmth and perspiration, creating an environment conducive to vaginal infections. So, if you’re considering wearing silk underwear, you’re in for a treat! Many find silk to be luxurious and comfortable. Merino wool is another excellent choice. It’s a very fine woolen fabric that not only feels great but also breathes well, making it a preferred choice for many.
