To Panty or NOT to Panty....That is the Question!

OK, maybe that's not entirely what Shakespeare pondered, but the debate on whether to wear panties or Go Commando still rages.  Whether you're running low on clean undies or avoiding VPL (visible panty lines),  feeling a little scandalous, or just enjoying the breeze, chances are you've gone Commando (or sans panties) at some point in your life. Some people choose Commando on a regular basis, possibly inspired by the sexy Sharon Stone.

There are no hard & fast rules when it comes to wearing (or not wearing) undergarmets.  Do what feels comfortable for you.    

But when you ditch the panties, pay attention to how things feel down below before you leave home.  Be conscious that scratchy or tight fabrics can be irritating. If you are experiencing even mild discomfort while at home, it may escalate as the day goes on.

Another consideration is LAUNDRY!  This is a big one for me as I don't love doing laundry.  We wouldn't wear panties multiple times without washing them, so the same should go with whatever bottoms you wear without undies.  

And is it OK to go commando in workout gear?  What if you're going to Spinning Class??  Are you going to sit on a "germy" seat that someone else has been sitting on with so little protection?  Yikes!!!  Experts advice that workout pants are a sufficient barrier against any bugs lurking at the gym, however they also recommend getting out of sweaty workout clothes immediately after your workout to make sure moisture-loving yeast don't cause a full-on yeast infection.

There are times where going commando doesn't make sense. If you have a heavy flow, it could be a bit embarrassing to leak so you may want that extra bit of protection. Or if wearing a short skirt - - wardrobe malfunctions are a concern. 

In the end, it all comes down to what you're most comfortable wearing—or NOT wearing.  Do you!
