Your vagina will thank you: These breathable leggings are ultra-comfy and moisture-wicking.
We all want performance bottoms that will help us power through that ridiculously difficult bootcamp class or super-sweaty hot yoga session. But when it comes to your vaginal health, certain materials may be better than others.
In a previous interview with Health, Alyssa Dweck, MD, an ob-gyn at Mount Kisco Medical Group in Westchester, New York, told us she recommends leggings that are made of breathable, moisture-wicking fabric to prevent perspiration from building up down there.
No matter the leggings you wear, though, it's probably not a great idea to lounge around in sweat-soaked tights after a hard workout, says Orlando-based ob-gyn Christine Greves, MD, a fellow of the American Association of Obstetrics and Gynecology. This is especially true if you're someone who is particularly prone to vaginal infections. No matter the fabric, Dr. Greves advises changing into something dry immediately after your workout, since the dark, warm, and moist environment can create an ideal breeding ground for bacteria and yeast.
Here, we've got the leggings that will help you cool and dry, so you can get through your sprints, reps, yoga flow, or just errand-running without feeling uncomfortable.
