Why a "pocket" is sewn into panties: it has a special function
Lingerie is one of the most important elements of a wardrobe, as it is in constant contact with the most vulnerable part of the body. It is not for nothing that they say it is important not to save on it, because a high-quality model can help prevent many women's health problems. In particular, for this purpose, a "pocket" is sewn into the panties - an additional cotton insert called a gusset.
This "pocket" performs a special function, because the mucous membrane of the intimate organs needs extra attention. OBOZREVATEL decided to tell you why it is important to make sure that the gusset is on the underwear before you buy it (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The gusset, usually sewn to the panties on two or three sides (depending on the model), protects the intimate organs from discomfort and painful friction against, for example, tight trousers.
Moreover, an additional layer of fabric in the most intimate area will help prevent diseases that can develop due to poor ventilation and heavy discharge. In particular, vaginosis and thrush.
The gusset has other advantages as well. For example, the gusset protects the main material of the underwear from discharge. This way, the underwear will last longer and look neater.
However, it is important to remember that an additional layer of fabric is not a guarantee of comfort and hygiene if it is made of synthetic materials. The "pocket" should be made of cotton fabrics. They absorb moisture better and prevent the creation of a comfortable environment for fungi and other microorganisms.
Interestingly, the gusset is not provided on exquisite lingerie with lace, many thongs and other specific models, as manufacturers assume that such panties will be used exclusively for intimate purposes, so there is no need for additional protection.
