Men go commando all the time, so why shouldn’t women too? Actually, it is healthy for women to go commando sometimes. There are certain times when it is acceptable for women to not wear underwear. And during the times when it wouldn’t be acceptable to go commando, no one needs to know you are. People shouldn’t be able to tell you’re not wearing underwear, so if you don’t think people would accept that you’re going commando, don’t tell them. Some people think it’s gross for women to go commando or a health issue; others think it’s not ladylike. However, there are many times when it is just necessary to go commando, and there are other times when it is just more comfortable to do so. There are certain types of underwear that are just uncomfortable when paired with a particular pair of pants. It’s much easier to avoid being uncomfortable by ditching your panties. It’s time to get with the times and jump on the commando train.
12 With high-low skirts
One of the worst things about wearing a skirt is the wardrobe malfunction after you go to the bathroom when your skirt inadvertently gets stuck in your underwear. You’ll never have to worry about this problem again if you go commando under your high-low skirt. This kind of skirt also won’t ride up because it is shorter in the front than it is in the back, so you don’t have to worry about anything being exposed. High-low skirts are one of the easiest articles of clothing to wear when going commando according to Bustle.
11 When running
The main reason women choose not to wear underwear when they are going for a run is because most running gear will show their underwear lines. If women don’t wear underwear when running, there are no unsightly underwear lines. The last thing women want when they are going on a run is for people to be staring at their underwear lines. Women have enough reasons to be self-conscious as it is. Women also report feeling more free when they go running without wearing underwear. It is also more comfortable to run this way in the summer when it’s so hot.
10 When you’re wearing something tight that would show panty lines
Whether you are wearing something skin tight or something light colored, you are bound to be exposing your panties to the rest of the world. In some cases, the unsightly panty lines can be seen. However, other times, the color of your underwear or the design on them can be seen right through your light colored pants or dress. Nude colored underwear can often times prevent visible panty lines but not always. The safest bet is to just skip the undergarments altogether.
9 When wearing a revealing dress/skirt
Many celebrities have had to go commando at certain times because their fancy expensive dresses that they wear to award shows and Hollywood functions had unnatural cuts that prevented them from wearing underwear. While the chances of you wearing an extravagant dress like that are much slimmer than a celebrity’s, you might at some point in your life wear a dress with a cut that would expose your underwear if you wore any. You’ll never find a pair of underwear that were made for dresses with cuts like that, so save yourself the trouble and just go commando.
8 When you’re going somewhere with your man
If you’re going on a date with your man, or even if you are both just going to the same function, pass on the underwear. It will make you feel sexier, and if you whisper in his ear in a public place that you aren’t wearing any underwear, he will be instantly turned on. And it will drive him crazy because there’s nothing he can do about it at that moment. This will spice up your relationship if you are having trouble sexually of if you have been together for a long time and the sex appeal is gone.
7 When you’re doing laundry
If you’re like a lot of people, you probably wait till the last possible minute to do your laundry, as in, when you have absolutely no clean underwear to wear. If you’re going to do laundry, you might as well wash everything, including the pair of underwear that you would normally be wearing while doing laundry. You’re just giving yourself an extra day so you can wait even longer to do laundry the next time.
6 With stretchy or baggy pants
With most pants, no one will be able to tell you’re going commando. This is also a great way to avoid getting wedgies. It is still possible to get a wedgy when going commando, but it is less likely because there is less fabric. Sweat pants are one of the most comfortable types of pants to go commando in because the seams are softs and unnoticeable. As long as your pants are tight around the waist and baggy everywhere else, you should be fine. But if they don’t fit around the waist, they might slide down throughout the day.
5 With leggings
Leggings fit so tight that I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to wear underwear without having visible panty lines. Also, some leggings are so tight that I’m not sure underwear would even fit under them. As long as your leggings aren’t made of a see-through material, you should be safe to go commando. However, be careful because camel toe is a real possibility according to Bustle, which said that camel toe is likely because leggings fit so tightly and by not wearing underwear, you only increase the likelihood of camel toe.
4 When wearing biking shorts
Similar to when running, if you wear biking shorts when doing any sort of exercising, you can skip the underwear. Just like with running, you are likely to have visible panty lines when you wear biking shorts or really any type of tight exercise wear. Bustle also recommends making sure the bike shorts are tight fitting enough so that you can avoid chafing. Nobody wants that. Underwear would just be another article of clothing that will get all sweaty anyway, so you might as well just pass on it.
3 On your wedding day
Going to the bathroom with a big bushy wedding dress is a difficult process and often requires the help of your maid of honor. By not wearing underwear underneath your wedding dress, you are making the process slightly easier. Also, no one will be able to tell you’re not wearing anything under your dress. It will also be a great surprise for the groom on the wedding night. Just be sure not to hike up your dress too far when dancing or during other wedding reception traditions.
2 When wearing pajamas
It’s as comfortable to go without underwear when you’re wearing pajamas as it is when you’re wearing sweat pants. It is also a good idea to go commando when sleeping for health reasons. One of the main reasons you shouldn’t wear underwear to bed is to give your lady parts some breathing room and let it air out. Not getting enough air can affect the PH balance. When you don’t have the right PH balance, it can lead to yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis, which is when there is more bad bacteria than good bacteria in your vagina.
1 When you’re sleeping
It’s healthy to skip wearing underwear under your pajamas when you’re sleeping, but you can take it one step further and improve your health even more by sleeping completely naked. Sleeping naked has been linked to better sleep, reducing belly fat, and much more. Sleeping naked allows your body to naturally cool down to the temperature that it is supposed to at night, which has several health benefits including keeping off weight. It can also spice up your love life in the same way it does when you’re not wearing underwear underneath your outfit when you’re on a date with your man.
