Some might be prudish about going without underwear and letting your privates get some air, but there are some benefits to it. Dr. Alyssa Dweck, told Shape magazine that if your vagina is constantly covered, more moisture collects down there, which cultivates an ideal environment for yeast growth. So maybe you shouldn’t knock it before you try it. Here are 5 benefits: Your Bits Can Breathe At Night If you’re not comfortable without undies during the day, then at least do so at night. It’s much better to go commando at night to let your nether regions breathe and to avoid bacterial and fungal infection. Bad Bacteria Is Less Likely To Migrate If you're a fan of thongs, it may be time to rethink your choice as they may aid in bacterial transfer from the anus to the vagina. Yeast Infections Can Clear Up Yeast infections can be a nightmare. Skipping underwear can help clear things up. Allowing air to hit the area is important because it stops the moisture trapped by your underwear from causing a yeast infection and skin irritation externally. No irritation Moisture in your underwear can lead to chaffing and irritation of your private bits, and tiny underwear and especially shape wear can get to be too tight. So why not skip the discomfort and decreased circulation by just not wearing any? No panty lines If you go commando you won’t have issues with tight-fitting clothing or unforgiving fabrics, and you’ll have no panty lines.
