G-strings are the right type of lingerie for wearing in summer. You can wear them under your skintight and see-through outfits. Your body is likely to get an even, steady tan if you wear g-string swimwear while relaxing on the beach. However, wearing g-strings all the time can be risky in terms of women’s health.
Dr. Liza Masterson, a gynecologist from Los Angeles, has carried out a research to find out whether the prolonged use of g-strings would be safe for the female body. Dr. Masterson released the results of her study a while ago. According to her, that fancy underwear otherwise known as g-strings can pose a real threat to women’s health.

First, women who wear g-strings day in and day out are more susceptible to developing yeast vaginal infections and venereal diseases. G-strings are usually made from synthetic fabrics e.g. nylon. The fabrics of the kind are well-known for their ability to retain moisture, thus creating excellent conditions for rapid growth of pathogenic bacteria. Besides, g-strings help the infection spread from one organ to another. Bacteria can easily get to the vagina by “sliding” down the narrow strip of cloth at the back of the underwear, says Dr. Masterson’s study.
Second, indulging too much in the use of such lingerie can cause irritation on the skin, anal fissures or even hemorrhoids. A tidy strip at the back of the underwear seems to be designed to rub against the delicate skin, which can be damaged by constant rubbing. Besides, statistics suggest that women wearing g-strings run a greater risk of injuring their genitals during a fall or traffic accident.

Dr. Masterson recommends that women try to avoid wearing g-strings on a regular basis. The basic rules will come in handy for those who have a penchant for this type of fancy underwear:
1. Do not wear g-strings when the weather is hot and wet.
2. Use g-strings made from natural fabric e.g. cotton or silk.
3. Choose the right size at all times. G-strings that sit somewhat loose are thought to be less dangerous in terms of the spread of infection than those fitting closely to the body.
4. Do not wear g-strings around the clock. Change into more closed underwear at the earliest opportunity.
5. Use daily sanitary towels and change them regularly if you wear g-strings made from synthetic material.
6. Try to avoid wearing g-string swimwear.
