OK ladies, I have a serious panty recommendation for you! I recently purchased the merino wool thong underwear from Icebreaker. Unfamililar with Icebreaker? They are a performance clothing company, that makes “purposeful” clothing made from quality merino wool. Founded in “land of merino sheep”. Icebreaker also strives to “provide natural performance alternatives to synthetic based apparel to create a healthier more sustainable future for our species and the planet.”. The company amazing story and business structure. I highly recommend checking out their website and reading up about them! There is real science to the quality clothing they produce. They also make everything with the planet and human race in mind.
Merino Wool Thong + Benefits
I had heard about the comfort of the merino wool thong, and wanted to give it a try. However, (full disclosure) I really don’t wear underwear that often, so it has taken me a while to try it out. Sorry, but it’s totally true! I am easily grossed out and annoyed by the sh*tty quality of most underwear and lingerie companies. They are over-priced, uncomfortable, and just overall bad for my feminine hygiene.
I see it constantly at my acupuncture practice; women coming in with tight unbreathable underwear, yoga pants, and even denim on. Drives me crazy because it just so unhealthy. Let’s face it ladies, we have all experienced time when our feminine health just felt “a little off”. Yes, your doctor clears you. Sends you on your way, but still something is just not right. Girl, don’t worry, I SO believe you! Most times, it’s simply because your coochie can’t BREATHE!
I can not stress it enough! Wearing breathable underwear made from quality ingredients is one of the best things you can do for your feminine well-being. The Icebreaker merino wool thong is just that. It’s so incredibly comfortable, light, breathable. For someone who hates wearing underwear- well, I barely even noticed that I had it on!
They are available for $30 and if a thong isn’t your cup of tea don’t fret! Icebreaker makes boy shorts, hipkini’s, and regular bikini’s that are all equally cute and cool. Yep, I know $30 per panty is a bit steep. Especially, compared to the 5 pairs for $20 you can get at Victoria’s Secret. But, if I am willing to spend X amount of dollars on my skincare routine, then why would I not do the same for my feminine health?
Not only is merino wool extremely soft, but it is also known for it’s sweat wicking, anti-microbial, AND temperature regulating. When you wear this underwear it’s protecting you from sitting in any damp panties no matter how active you are. Wear it to the gym, yoga, hot yoga even, hiking, or simply on a daily basis. It’s incredibly versatile and a breath of fresh air (pun intended). Like I said, it’s like a little hug for your coochie!
