moisture wicking underwear


Moisture wicking underwear draws sweat and moisture away from your skin. This will prevent chafing and irritation and will keep you cool, dry, and comfortable throughout the day. You need moisture wicking underwear if you sweat even just a little bit while traveling, exercising, cooking, working, walking, talking, Netflixing, or sleeping. So . . . basically, all the time. Luckily, we have some pretty cute moisture wicking options available in both a rainbow of fun colors and easy-to-wear neutrals.

The Benefits of Moisture Wicking Underwear 

If you don’t already use moisture wicking underwear, you might experience a build-up of sweat and bacteria in your underwear, which can lead to skin irritation and yeast infections. Any amount of moisture in your underwear can breed bacteria or fungus, causing you to itch, feel inflamed, or even smell down there. (No, thank you.) 

When you wear moisture wicking underwear, the material pulls the moisture away from your body and helps you dry more quickly. There are synthetic and natural moisture wicking options available out there, but one natural material works best: silk. 

Silk: A Gentle and Durable Moisture Wicking Fabric

Silk is the ultimate moisture-wicking fabric and one of the healthiest underwear choices you can make. Our soft silk undies feel good on the skin and pair beauty with function. When cotton gets wet, it stays that way — but that’s not the case with silk. With silk, moisture gets locked inside the material so you cannot feel it. 

Silk is much more comfortable than cotton, too. Cotton can be quite rough and itchy, while silk is soft and gentle against the skin. It’s also less likely to cause skin irritation than man-made fibers like nylon. Overall, silk is more absorbent and can help keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. 

When compared against other common underwear materials, here are some of the top benefits of silk. 

  • Silk vs. Cotton: Silk is more absorbent and dries faster than cotton. 
  • Silk vs. Nylon: Silk is more breathable than nylon.
  • Silk vs. Polyester: Silk is more odor resistant than polyester. 

In addition, silk is naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial. It’s also highly durable and simply feels great compared to other natural and synthetic materials. We told you it’s the best!
