Panties are an essential part of every woman's wardrobe. The softer and more premium the item is the harder they can be difficult to fold and store neatly. We'll explore some tips and tricks for folding panties to keep your drawer organized and tidy. We'll cover everything from the basics of folding panties to more advanced techniques used by experts like Marie Kondo.
Why Fold Panties At All?
Here are some great reasons why you shouldn't just crumple them up:
1. Saves space
Folding underwear neatly can help you save space. Neatly folded underwear take up less room than crumpled or unfolded, allowing you to fit more items in a smaller space.
2. Feeling Organized
Feel good about yourself whenever you look into your organized draw, free of clutter, even when the rest of your life isn’t. It also makes it easier to find the pair you're looking for and saves you time when you are rushing to work or getting dressed for a night out.
3. Prevents wrinkles
Neatly folded panties or boyshorts are less likely to get wrinkled than crumpled up underwear. This is especially important if you wear leggings that requires a smooth appearance for a low profile.
4. Protects fabric
Neatly folded underwear can help protect the fabric from wear and tear. One of the reasons why older items develop pilling ( lumps of broken fabric on the surface ) is from abrasion between clothing. Crumpled or thrown in a drawer, it can cause the fabric to stretch or become misshapen over time. Folding them neatly can help maintain the shape and elasticity of the fabric.
5. Easy to pack
Easier to pack for travel or storage. When your panties are folded neatly, they take up less space in your suitcase or storage container, leaving more room for other items.
