Why bamboo underwear may be better for you
Whether you’re a boxers or briefs man, you can appreciate the comfort of a well-made pair of undies. If you’re going to be in them all day long, you want to be sure they keep you cool, comfortable and stink-free.
While cotton underwear is likely your first pick, have you considered bamboo? There are plenty of reasons why it’s a great choice, and here are a selection.
Keeps you cool
Bamboo fabric has fantastic thermoregulation properties – i.e. it keeps you cool in hot weather, and warm in cooler weather. It draws moisture away from your body but doesn’t hold it, like cotton does. Instead, the moisture is released from the fabric and quickly evaporates.
If you get particularly sweaty from a hard day at work, or tough work out session, bamboo underwear may help you ward off a case of the ‘stinks’, as it’s naturally odour-resistant.
Soft and silky
While durable, bamboo is also a very light fabric that offers a soft silken feeling. The extra bonus? It’s static and wrinkle free.
Great for sensitive skin
If you’re prone to getting a case of the itches, or have a skin condition, bamboo is a great option as it’s hypoallergenic.
Good for the environment
There are many ways bamboo is superior to cotton when it comes to being good for the planet. It grows rapidly without the need for much water, plus is 100% biodegradable and renewable. Plus, no fertilizers and pesticides are needed during the growing process.
Now that you’ve got the lowdown on all things bamboo, all you need to do is get shopping eBay’s huge range and grab a bamboo jocks and socksbargain or two.
