Though we wear (men or women) thong underwear but we tend to forget it's not like other styles. From washing to wearing on occasions, we treat it just like other versions such as men's brief, boxer briefs etc but we should never forget "it's different" and requires certain rules for maintaining it and because of that we end up creating chaos.
What are these mistakes that we are doing? Let's find out.
1. You treat them like your sleepwear
Men's thong underwear is one of the most comfortable versions of underwear crafted by designers yet it's not recommended for sleeping purposes because they are made out of non-breathable fabrics such as lace, lycra which are known as synthetic fabrics as well.
You can look out for something which is 100% cotton based and is loosely fitted as well such as boxers that can be worn while sleeping.
2. Avoid wearing synthetic lingerie
The second mistake that you should avoid in men's thong underwear is opting for synthetic fabric. Cotton underwear is highly recommended for your better health because not only it's comfortable but it's breathable as well that helps to keep you free of any excess moisture which can cause infection.
And when you are unable to spot cotton thongs its good to have them for your special occasions rather than for your regular wear.
3. Washing and drying them incorrectly
To keep them safe and sound for a long time it's better if you opt for hand washing technique using warm water( No hot water) rather than machine wash because its a delicate clothing which can be easily ruined when not taken proper care. Besides that, you should even invest in gentle detergent.
Machine wash is only recommended when you are running out of time and not without a lingerie bag or mesh bag. Make sure you don't twist or wring thongs and dry it in the shade where there is the minimal entrance of sunlight so that colours won't fade away. Clothespin, again not recommended.
4. Incorrect placement of male thongs
Whether it's your briefs, boxer briefs, bikinis or male thongs, you need to keep them properly i.e. folding them rather than just tossing away. There are different folding techniques through which you can easily keep your underwear save and sound. If you don't have drawer invest in closet organisers that are easily available online as well as in your local market.
Closet organisers are not only good for your delicate clothing but help you in saving a lot of space which you can use for keeping other stuff. You can even organise your styles depending upon the occasion, for example, one section for office wear or your daily wear, one for gym wear and one for your intimate moments.
5. Pairing white thong with white pants
Wearing white underwear when wearing white pants is an age-old tradition which is going on since ages but you are not realising the fact that instead of complimenting your clothing it's just diminishing it. Rather switch to nude coloured underwear whether it's your briefs or men's thong underwear, this rule is applicable on all sorts of styles.
6. Sticking to same lingerie
Sticking to one style makes sense only if that fits you well, consists no more holes and is in the same colour which means red is still red otherwise it's better to throw them away. According to experts, "One should not carry his underwear in his closet more than 6 months". So if your underwear is just lying there because your better half gifted you on your first anniversary, Nah! it doesn't make sense.
So now when you are aware of its do's and don't hope you treat them properly.
