Yes, thongs are sexy. However, they're not meant to be worn every single day. Sometimes, you should swap them out for something more comfortable. According to Cosmopolitan, you shouldn't wear a thong on these occasions:
1. You're Planning to Wear Your Workout Clothes All Day
You don't want to wear a thong while exercising, and then keep it on for the rest of the day. "It can foster bacterial growth that disrupts your vagina's healthy balance." Make sure you have an extra pair of underwear with you.
2. You're Wearing a Short Skirt
If your skirt is so short that your actual booty ends up pressed against chairs, then you don't want a thong on. Why? When you sit on a public seat, like a bus, "you could sweep up bacteria and viruses."
3. You're Prone to Yeast or Bacterial Vaginal Infections
You don't want to get a urinary tract infection. They're not any fun.
4. You're Going Swimsuit Shopping
You don't want to get germs on you from the last women who tried on the swimsuit. That's why you should wear underwear that covers you up a bit more when trying on swimsuits.
5. You're Skipping Your Daily Shower
"Daily washing with gentle soap can help reduce skin and vaginal infections."
6. You're Sick
"Your immune system is already compromised." That means it'll be easier for you to get an infection.
7. You're Leaking
"When even a few drops of acidic urine hangs out in the crotch of tight-fitting thongs, it could irritate sensitive skin and cause a rash."
