Every chick knows that panties with breathable fabrics (a.k.a cotton) are the way to go when it comes to your vaginal health. And yet we still buy lace, nylon and even satin panties that are basically a yeast infection waiting to happen. There's a reason gynos tell us over and over again to stick with 100 % cotton underwear. It's literally the only breathable panty option out there. Synthetic fabrics tend to trap heat and moisture, creating a nasty breeding ground for bacteria that could lead to a yeast overgrowth or bacterial infection. But the problem is most cotton panties are NOT cute!

You can buy cheeky lace undies, just make sure it has a 100 % cotton panel in the middle, unless you don't mind waking up the next morning with an itchy vagina and thick, white discharge. Here are 10 sexy panties that won't--I repeat won't--give you a yeast infection!
