Hear us out. Silk, not cotton, is the best natural fiber for underwear. Silk is highly absorbent, naturally temperature-regulating, and durable. (Amazing, right?) While it may cost more, when you invest in silk panties you’re making a sustainable lingerie choice that is also stylish and comfortable.

Satin vs. Silk vs. Cotton

You might be wondering: what is the difference between silk and satin? Well, silk is a material and satin is a finish. Materials, including synthetics, can have a satin finish and thus feel silky. But for all the natural benefits of silk, you want to look for something that is 100% natural fiber silk, like our Soft Silk Underwear Briefs

As a fabric, silk has a higher tensile strength and longer average fiber length than cotton. “This translates to a superior performance of silk fabric over cotton, meaning it will wear better over a longer period of time,” explains Samantha Benassai, Uwila Warrior’s Product Development manager. Silk is also better than cotton at keeping moisture out, as we’ll discuss below. 

The Natural Benefits of Silk Underwear 

Silk is the ultimate moisture-wicking fabric and one of the healthiest underwear choices you can make. Unlike cotton, silk locks moisture inside of its material so you cannot feel it. Whether you work out a lot, sweat (even a little) during the day or night, or tend to get yeast infections that just won’t go away, a pair of silk underwear can change your life.  

Silk is also more comfortable than cotton, which can be rough and itchy. And unlike synthetics, it is less likely to irritate your skin. 

Silk fibers are among the most durable. You can also wash them relentlessly and keep them for years. And as Samantha explains, that’s not the only reason they're good for the planet: “Silk also uses fewer pesticides and water in its cultivation and processing, making it more earth-friendly than conventionally grown cotton.”

Stylish Silk Panties Options

Silk might feel like a traditional or old-fashioned lingerie fabric, but it’s stuck around for a long time for a reason. Plus today, you can buy modern styles. “Our silk panties are both refined and colorful, which is a unique find in the lingerie market,” explains Samantha. Instead of creating a precious, delicate panty, we've engineered them to be your everyday panties in a universal brief cut.” They come in 10 different gorgeous colors and sizes XXS to 3X.
