Which is the right underwear for your teen girl? An essential guide
The meaning of being cool has changed drastically over 10 to 20 years. Teens in 2022 India are more aware of everything than ever before. Being aware of and responsible is the new cool, be it being vocal about climate change, shopping for organic alternatives, or leading a healthy life.
As a teen, you never bought clothes for yourself or never thought of fabrics, design, fibres, etc., but you do now. Buying undergarments is one of the most tough decisions you make once/twice a year. Now that your daughter is also involved in the decision, you need to take care of all the nitty-gritties.
4 factors to look for when buying the perfect pair of undies
Natural fabrics, plant-based fibres, comfortable threads, flexible design, odourless, and anti-bacterial. All these are a must-have for your daughter's intimate hygiene. Of course, you will say, are regular underwear not at this par? We must tell you they are fine.
But your teen body experiences constant change at this stage. Nothing would be enough. Her body changes, body odour changes, hormone level fluctuates, body weight changes constantly, the menstruation cycle starts, and god knows what not. At such a time, your junior may be very vulnerable (and the insta-perfect body images on social media certainly don’t help.)
It is time to be open with them about all the walks of their puberty lives, even 'Do I smell bad down there?' questions. Some girls are aware of wipes and other products to make them feel cleaner, more hygienic, and more confident. But some don’t, which is also alright.
Lay your eyes on Vitamin infused underwear which has:
These are the healthiest fabrics of all to manufacture intimate garments from. They provide breathability and prevent moisture. Examples of these natural fabrics are cotton, hemp, silk, etc. Main key is that the gusset line must be made out of cotton and its natural alternatives. Most daily underwear use these fabrics to make the product airy, breathable, and healthy. However, there also exist a few cases where people buy synthetic-fibre-made undies due to their smoothness and style quotient. You must restrict your kids' wardrobe to natural fabrics but assemble playful pairs. This will keep them fresh and more comfortable.
2.Plant-based Gusset Line
As mentioned above, gusset lines are a crucial area in your underwear. A gusset is a triangular-shaped fabric that sits in the crotch area. Teens' vaginas and vulva region increase in size along with the occurrence of pubic hair and discharge during puberty. They will also start experiencing their first period during this time. These changes are inevitable.
Hence, it is important to have a healthy nether region to avoid bacterial infections. Some underwear brands have opted to infuse plant-based fibres with traditional cotton to benefit from minerals and vitamins. Intimate Queen's plant-based range of undies includes lemon trees, vitamin C, yew trees, and corn plant fibres in the gusset area. It keeps the moisture away, feels light, prevents bacterial growth, and hence proves to balance pH value.
Your girl deserves to feel super comfy in her undergarments, be it a bra or an underwear. The threads used in stitching must be soft to avoid rashes or friction. Select the pair of underwear that provides her comfort in these areas. Fabrics like cotton, taxol, antimicrobial cotton, and others are meant to be smooth without causing any irritation. These fabrics are flexible and seamless to make them super-comfy.
Soft weaves and natural threads make the gusset area moisture resistant/wicking. It is a functional design to prevent the vagina from bacteria. It enhances protection from infection, irritation, and friction.
Consider body-weight fluctuations while making a decision
Body weight is directly proportional to confidence, particularly in this filters-loving era. It is reasonable to feel uncomfortable with all the body changes. However this should not affect your self-confidence. Buying new clothes due to every fluctuation just makes matters worse. Body weight fluctuations also come with buying clothes frequently.
There are many innovations and solutions for this problem, and the most feasible one is one-size-fits-many. Once you buy one-sized clothes, you don't need to worry about body weight. They will be perfect even if you lose or gain 5-10 kgs. The one-size undies offered by Intimate Queen were devised to tackle such problems.
Please follow the size chart before shopping.
Do you feel natural and plant-based alternatives to regular undies can be expensive?
Well, here is the good news. First, buying natural underwear or garments costs way less than buying frequently and ends up with less used clothes in the wardrobe. Second, many brands come with accessible solutions. It is the first time in India such a solution is available at an affordable price range.
The right underwear will not cost you much and make your girl all comfy
Shop online or offline, our brand or others, but consider naturals over synthetics, one-size over rigid sizes, and cost-effective solutions over expensive brands. And, knock knock! Don't forget to discuss it with your girl before purchasing.
