Is it time to break up with your g-string?

Once upon a time, I was on the G-train. All day, every day, I had a g-string wedged tightly up my bum crack and you know what? They were pretty comfy once I got used to them and the added benefit of zero VPL was a winner.

But then, I had my first kid and after a stint of big, loose granny undies to keep those surfboard-sized post-bleed pads in check, I jumped ship. How COMFORTABLE and non-restrictive those giant bum huggers were. It was a revelation… and I’ve never looked back. The bigger, higher and looser they are, the better. I know, my husband is one lucky cat.

If you’re a lass who loves to rock a bit of bum floss, then you might not like this news. Apparently, g-bangers have been linked to a heap of nasty stuff, most notably infections in your lady bits. Why? Well, put simply, bacteria from your BUM HOLE can easily spread into your vag and can lead to some pretty awful conditions such as thrush, bacterial vaginosis and even UTIs. And NO ONE wants to be alternating their glass of bubbly with Ural.

This could really ruin a night out.

And it doesn’t end there. Ill-fitting g-strings, particularly those made from synthetic fabrics or covered in lace, can also leave you with minor cuts and irritation to your very delicate lady bits. Add the friction of wearing them under fitted clothing and you could find yourself on the express train to ingrown hairville, with a stop-over at itchy rash city.

While this isn’t the case for everyone, it’s pretty safe to say that many of us have felt a bit of discomfort at one time or another while wearing a g-string.  For some women, they are the ONLY form of underwear they care to wear, so go forth and keep on keepin’ on girls. Just make sure you’re rocking nothing but the cotton variety and be sure to change them after sweat-inducing activities like exercising.

And for those of us who don’t enjoy any kind of bum floss but also don’t want an undie line on display? U.S gyno Donnica Moore gave Health mag the answer… and it’s to go commando. “It’s not good to always have the lady parts locked up. They need air like all other body parts,” she said. That’s one move I won’t be trying, but if you’re game, just be careful when out and about…. particularly when getting in and out of cars. No one wants to do a Britney.
