That Little Pocket In Women’s Underwear Actually Has A Purpose

Ladies, we've got an important message for you. It's about something we know you've been curious about for a while now. And honestly, it's mind-blowing.

Have you ever noticed a small pocket in the crotch area of your underwear? You know, the one that matches the color and fabric of your underwear, but it forms a little flap where your vagina sits. Ever wondered about it?

Well, it serves a purpose. And no, in case anyone was wondering, it's not for stuffing extra toilet paper in case there's none on the roll next time you're in the bathroom (not that we've ever done that...).

If you're not sure which pocket we're referring to, go to your underwear drawer right now and take a look at some of your panties. We're almost certain that most of the pairs of underwear in there will have a little flap right at the bottom where your, achem, lady parts go.

This pocket—though it's not really a pocket at all—has a name, and it's called a "gusset." Some people also call it a "crotch lining," but for the sake of our appetites, we'll stick with calling it a gusset.

A gusset is defined as "a triangular or rhomboidal piece of fabric inserted into a seam to add breadth or reduce stress from tight-fitting clothing."

In simpler terms, it's a small piece of additional fabric included in underwear to provide breathing room and safeguard your intimate area from any discomfort.

While we find it beneficial, some might perceive it as absurd. A whole extra piece of fabric just to shield your private parts—sounds a bit excessive, doesn't it?

But it actually makes perfect sense— a woman's genitals are among the most sensitive parts of her body. Numerous factors can trigger irritation, discomfort, or inflammation— even minor changes like switching soap can lead to issues in that area.

In addition to comfort, the gusset also serves as an inner layer of defense against bacteria and potential infections. By enhancing breathability, it helps keep you dry, reducing the chance of yeast and harmful bacteria overgrowth.

In summary, the gusset provides additional protection from the inner seams of the underwear, which could potentially irritate your sensitive areas. We might not even realize the extent of irritation or susceptibility to bacterial infections we'd face if manufacturers didn't include the gusset. So, thank you, underwear gods!

Alright, here's a question: Why do some underwear have a gusset while others don't? You might observe that typically, more sensual and elegant underwear styles won't include a gusset. The speculation behind this is that such underwear is usually intended for shorter durations of wear. Gulp!

Did you know what that little pocket in your underwear was for before this? Did you ever think it was meant for storing something? We'll never see our panties in quite the same light again!
