God knows how much money I've wasted in the endless search for the best cotton underwear for women. Before the internet, you really only had two options. You could grab a multi-pack off the shelf and try to determine the size and fit from the picture, or you could head to a lingerie store where you'd spend $15 on one pair that may or may not hold up in the wash. But these days, the best cotton undies come backed by near perfect ratings on Amazon, with reviewers weighing in on fit, design, durability, and comfort levels.
Since you're here, I'm guessing you already know about the countless benefits of cotton underwear (including its benefits for vaginal health). What you may not know is how to sort through all the options to find a new go-to pair for you.
When shopping for the best cotton panties, keep in mind that 100% cotton may not be ideal. Yeah, they'll be breathable and skin-friendly, but they may also bunch up, and lose their shape. For that reason, consider options with at least 5% elastic — maybe more in the waistband, so the underwear won’t roll down. That said, if you're keen on finding super soft, breathable underwear made with 100% cotton, look for options that come pre-shrunk to prevent shape issues.
After that, it's all about preference and high ratings, so check out these well-loved options for all different bodies and budgets.
