Why Do Women’s Underwear Have A Pocket?

Have you ever wondered why women’s underwear sometimes comes with a pocket? 

Oftentimes this pocket is referred to as a ‘gusset’. There are several reasons why this feature has become particularly popular. Our underwear range at Bawbags has them, and we are excited to share why with you here.

From improved hygiene and convenience to added comfort and fashion, our selection of underwear with pockets offers a variety of benefits for women of all ages and lifestyles. 

So whether you are after an answer to the question of why do women’s underwear have a pocket? Or, if you are looking to pick up a pair already, carry on reading to find out!

The Purpose of a Pocket in Women’s Underwear

The pocket offers extra protection and absorbency by serving as a barrier between the body and the underwear. Underwear pockets (or Gussets, as they’re often called) help to absorb any moisture or discharge that may occur, keeping you feeling fresh and clean throughout the day.

Lastly, underwear pockets help to provide extra support and shape to the underwear. By adding an extra layer of fabric in the crotch area, the underwear can better conform to your body.
