Women’s fashion can be weird. Many ladies know the curse of having a hard time finding dresses with pockets, but it seems like every underwear has them. What is that little pocket in the crotch of your panties for? Of course, it’s not meant to replace pockets for other layers of clothing, right? It’s not that big, and let’s not talk about the logistics of how uncomfortable it would be to sit if you stored anything in there. So what’s the problem?
First, the pocket is not designed for storage. It is not decorative or additional protection in case of wardrobe damage. The pocket in the hem of women’s underwear is actually called a “gusset”. Gussets are very important and designed to protect your lady parts, and we all agree that’s a good thing.
Here’s what gussets are for
Women’s underwear is usually made of synthetic materials such as lace. Lace may look attractive, but it doesn’t breathe very well, meaning bacteria and sweat can collect more easily and get trapped in your underwear. It’s not fun. Gussets are usually made of cotton – a breathable, non-synthetic fabric that helps keep things dry and ventilated. Spruce not only ensures hygiene, but the extra fabric reduces the risk of unpleasant conditions such as yeast infections and urinary tract infections, and improves the breathability of the panties.
