I take a deep breath every time I take antibiotics out of fear of copping an itchy vag because thrush sucks. And sometimes you don’t even need to be on medication to cop it. But did you know there is bamboo underwear that can help you avoid the scratchy enemy? Enter Vee Underwear.

Made from organic bamboo, Vee Underwear boasts natural properties that ensure your knickers are breathable, antifungal and antibacterial, moisture-wicking and odour-resistant.

That’s a lot to take in but basically in translation: bamboo underwear will help your bits avoid thriving bacteria and therefore reduce the risk of irritation and exposure to yeast infections. Who knew? Not I.

Here’s the deal. Synthetic fabrics (think lace, polyester, silk) can cause havoc on your vagina’s health because the material traps heat and moisture. This irritates the skin and creates a nice little opportunity for bacteria (or a fungus) to thrive.

Things like diet, clothing, soaps and medication can also be causes of thrush — not just underwear. But bamboo underwear sure is an easier, more easily-identifiable change.

Cotton undies are also a good swap, but bamboo is four times more absorbent and three times more breathable. I’m a big believer in the undies you wear influencing your overall day, so it’s a good thing that Vee Underwear is aesthetically pleasing too.
