Ever experienced the uncomfortable (and unfortunate) sensation of a post-workout chafe? Many men have!

One minute you’re riding the high of a solid workout session, the next you’re limping and wincing your way to the change room.

And If there’s no time to freshen up, you can expect discomfort, intense chafing and potential sweat pimples in the not-so-distant future.

it's no surprise bamboo underwear is sky-rocketing in popularity for Aussie men and women.

Here are six reasons to switch to bamboo underwear.

1. Comfort and softness: Bamboo underwear is known for its exceptional softness and luxurious feel. The fabric is smooth against the skin, making it comfortable to wear throughout the day. The natural fibres of bamboo are hypoallergenic and gentle, making them an excellent choice for men with sensitive skin.

2. Innovative fabric: Ever heard of bamboo viscose? That’s the magic fabric used by Step One. an Australian ethical, eco friendly bamboo underwear brand which sells one pair around every eight seconds. Not only is the material naturally breathable, hypoallergenic, and moisture-wicking (which means it dries much faster than cotton), it also has anti-odour properties, so you can say goodbye to your post-workout stench as well.

Because the fabric allows air to circulate more effectively, it keeps you cool and comfortable, and its moisture-wicking abilities allow it to keep moisture away from your skin, helping to prevent pimples, rashes and yeast infections.(Yes, men can get them too!)

Step One underwear also incorporates small amounts of spandex and polyamide into their fabric, which means all products offer unrestricted movement and a nice, snug fit.

You know what that means – wedgies (and tearing or sagging) are a thing of the past.

3. Eco-Friendly and sustainable: Bamboo is a highly sustainable plant that grows rapidly without the need for pesticides or chemicals. Choosing bamboo underwear over conventional cotton ones can contribute to reducing environmental impact, as bamboo requires less water and has a smaller carbon footprint.

4. Temperature regulation: Bamboo underwear helps regulate body temperature, keeping you cooler in warm weather and warmer in cold weather. This thermoregulating property is especially beneficial for active individuals or those living in varying climates.

5. Durability and longevity: Bamboo fibres are surprisingly strong, making the underwear durable and long-lasting. They can withstand frequent washing and maintain their softness and shape over time, offering good value for money.

6. Beat the chafe before it begins: Although bamboo viscose itself isn’t chafe-resistant, it does decrease your chances, and when paired with Step One’s UltraGlyde panels (which sit between your thighs to minimise friction), you can say goodbye to irritation for good.
