What is moisture-wicking underwear?

Moisture-wicking underwear are panties made of special fabric that draw moisture (such as sweat) away from your body rather than just absorbing it.

Picture this: you’re halfway through a basketball game and you’re killing it. You’re three points up and you’ve got this in the bag. But then you start to notice it: a slight itchy feeling that starts off small but then gets unbearableAs you exercise, your panties become soaked in sweat and they start to itch, chafe, and generally cause you grief, distracting you from your game. We've all been there, and it’s not nice. This is where moisture-wicking underwear comes in. These are panties that are made out of specially-designed fabric that protects your sensitive vagina.

Instead of just absorbing your sweat and making you feel gross all day, moisture-wicking panties draw up the moisture to the outside of the fabric, just like a candle draws wax up its wick towards the flame (get it?). This lets the sweat evaporate easier, keeping your vagina feeling fresh for longer. #YAASSSS

Moisture-wicking panties aren’t just for sport either. Frankly, some of us just sweat more than others do — that’s just a fact. If you’re one of those females, sweat-absorbing underwear is an absolute lifesaver.

Finally, it has to be said: lots of us sweat more when you’re on your period. And Knixteens aren’t just moisture-wicking— they’re also period-proof panties too. Sweating? Covered. Bleeding? Check. Knixteens are good.
