According to Healthline, an online health information resource, there are several reasons why it’s unhealthy for women to wear panties to bed.
One of the most significant risks of wearing panties to bed is the increased risk of vaginal infections. The warm, moist, and dark environment created by tight-fitting panties offers a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, fungi, and viruses to grow, leading to infections like yeast infections and urinary tract infections (UTIs) (Berman, 2015).
In addition, wearing tight panties to bed can restrict blood flow to the vaginal area and obstruct the natural circulation of air, leading to skin irritation and chafing. According to Women's Health, skin irritation can lead to skin infections like folliculitis, a condition that causes red, itchy bumps on the skin (Zegers, 2021).
Furthermore, wearing panties to bed can cause discomfort and prevent relaxation. Tight panties can cause discomfort and lead to poor blood circulation, making it difficult for women to fall asleep and stay asleep. A study published in the Journal of Sleep Research found that wearing constricting clothing during sleep decreased sleep efficiency and quality (van den Berg et al., 2010).
In conclusion, while some women may find it comfortable to sleep in panties, it’s important to note that doing so could potentially lead to health complications. In addition to the risk of skin infections, discomfort, and poor sleep quality, wearing panties to bed could increase the risk of genital infections, making it advisable to opt for a comfortable nightgown or pajamas instead.
