Of the many different types of women’s underwear, the single most important one that every woman needs in her top drawer is a pair of silk panties.
Silk is rare, and elegant. Although it can be on the pricier end, we firmly believe that silk panties are worth every penny for all the benefits they provide. Keep reading to learn 9 reasons why silk is a must-have in your underwear collection.
Why Every Woman Needs a Pair of Silk Underwear
1. They’re hypoallergenic
Silk is hypoallergenic, or very unlikely to cause an allergic reaction, because of its natural protein structure and smooth texture. In addition, it doesn’t need to be treated with harsh chemicals to achieve its look or feel. So to those of us with sensitive skin, there’s no need to worry about a potential irritation resulting from silk underwear.
2. Silk is seasonless
Silk not only helps keep you warm in cold weather, but it also keeps you cool when temperatures rise. The temperature controlling qualities of silk work with your body’s temperature, so the best time to wear your silk panties is all the time. How can this be? Silk is a very breathable fabric with incredible moisture-wicking abilities. It pulls moisture away from the body to the fabric’s surface where it can evaporate, so you can stay dry and comfortable on hot summer days instead of sweaty.
3. They’re ideal for rocking pajamas
There’s nothing more satisfying on a night in than to get all snuggled up in the luxury of silk undergarments, and then pig out on junk food while catching up with Netflix. We would even go so far as to argue that it’s easier to relax in fabric that’s as soft as silk.
4. They’re fit for a queen
Silk panties will make you feel like royalty. Up until the 20th century, silk material was strictly reserved for the upper class. Only the royal family and aristocracy had the honor of wearing this luxurious fabric. Now that us commoners can don the fabric as well, we should certainly take advantage of the privilege!
5. They hug your curves
Put on a couple pounds over the holidays? Never fear! One of the best qualities of silk fabric is that it’s naturally elastic. Silk fibers can stretch up to 20% of their length and not break. Silk underwear also retains its shape very well and resists wrinkling better than most fabrics. So no matter what shape you’re in, silk panties will always be there for you.
6. They shimmer and shine
You’ll glow in silk underwear. This material has a natural luster that only enhances the appearance of your most personal assets. Wikipedia attributes this luminosity to the “triangular prism-like structure of silk fiber, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles.” Whatever the cause, we love how silk highlights our favorite features.
7. They’re timeless
Silk always has and always will be in fashion. One contributing factor to its ability to remain such a classic material is that it literally can stand the test of time. When properly cared for, silk stays beautiful for years, and even generations! Silk apparel has commonly been passed down within families as an heirloom over the centuries.
8. They’re ideal for rocking the boardroom
Yes, we know. It might sound like we’re contradicting ourselves, but we can’t help it how versatile this fabric is! Silk panties are just as appropriate for days in the office as they are for cozy nights in. They’re so comfortable you’ll feel like a goddess and they’re lightweight enough to be invisible under the tightest work slacks.
9. Most importantly, because you deserve it
If you’ve made it this far, it’s safe to say you care a lot about your underwear. (But in all honesty, shouldn’t everyone?) With all these benefits of silk in mind, you don’t need to make up any excuses to treat yourself with silk panties. Show your body the love it deserves by treating yourself to quality underwear.
