The material of the underwear is natural and breathable cotton, mainly considering the adaptability of the skin.
Fabrics such as chemical fibers can easily cause allergic discomfort to the skin on the surface of the breast, ranging from itching to recurrent eczema that does not heal.
2. Lighter colors
Light-colored underwear helps us to clearly see the color and amount of nipple discharge, and sometimes it is easier to detect certain nipple discharge diseases.
