Three Reasons To Buy The Man In Your Life Cotton Lingerie

Updated on October 13, 2009

AND it's organic!

Ladies, results of recent Internet polls have revealed what was to me, a surprising revelation. Men love cotton lingerie. Just can't get enough of it. That's the ones who like to wear lingerie, that is. The ones who prefer not to probably won't be overly excited by the appearance of pink cotton bikini panties in amongst their boxer shorts and tighty whities, then again, maybe they will be. One just never really knows with men, does one?

Anyway, if you're on the fence about buying your favorite fellow some cotton lingerie, here are a few reasons to do it.

Cotton lingerie does have its advantages in that you can toss it in the wash with the rest of his clothing without it taking too much of a beating. (If you do this too often it could end up grey and threadbare, but once or twice won't hurt.) Perfect for those days when the pesky mother in law is coming around, you want the house clean and the cat has taken the lingerie wash bag to have kittens on.

Cotton lingerie also breathes better than synthetic fabrics, and is therefore better for people with sensitive skin. If your man happens to suffer from conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, then cotton lingerie might even represent his only option. Because it breathes better, it also means that his manly scent will permeate the fabric less intensely than with other lingerie.

Now yes, the last two reasons did presuppose that the woman of the house is doing the washing. It's not sexist, I'm just being practical. Most men I've known are less than fastidious about getting the laundry done unless you have a cattle prod about the place to encourage them. Oh there's me being sexist again.

If you're into organic products (because what did chemicals and science ever do from us apart from double our lifespan and provides cures for ailments, making conditions which were once deadly now little more than an inconvenience, but I digress), then organic cotton lingerie is everywhere. Literally everywhere, you can't get away from the stuff, its just coming out of people's ears. Okay, perhaps not quite that plentiful, but it is out there, so you can buy it and feel good about protecting the environment.

A bonus reason: Perhaps the best reason to buy your man some cotton lingerie isn't the fact that it cleans easy, or smells better, or allows you to feel smug about your contribution to the environment. The best reason to buy a man some cotton lingerie is because he'll absolutely love it. Don't believe me? Check out the ecstatic comments on this hub.

      I love panties, many styles the tanga cut is wonderful, and any that hug the cheeks. Thongs are great depending on the style, a broad low cut front is my fav!

      All guys should definitely try cotton lingerie. Theres no harm in it and plus its cheaper and if you go with hanes you can sometimes find the packages with a bonus pair or two.

      I recently discovered cotton lingerie panties, bras, nighties, chemises..not to give up on my poly favourites but a whole new world has been opened for me. I encourage all men to own if only a few pairs of cotton panties.
