As a matter of concern recently I was advised by doctor to not to wear underwear during sleeping so that our body gets properly oxygenated and to avoid any kind of allergens in the groin area, Isnt it a good idea?

Ya, it's more comfortable not wearing underwear when we sleep. I do not wear it when i sleep. The sayings are true also, indeed there're studies done and shown that it's better not to wear underwear while sleeping so that the 'part' of our body will not be too warm to prohibit its acitvity, and it gets proper oxygenation.

Wear nothing while sleeping? What if its cold, would you still not wear anything? I want to try it but I shared room with my sister and sometime my mother always come inside my room and sometime they forgot to close it.

i dont sleep naked but i dont wear underwear while i sleep. for women, if you wear underwear all the time, it can cause bacteria to grow and you can yeast infections and whatnot. i think its just healthier. (i am in canada and it gets cold, so i still wear jammies to bed!)

I know its not good to wear an under wear while sleeping.Still I do wear it.Its just a habit.It feels quite funny not wearing it.I remember when I was in the boarding school they used to be very strict.We used to be told that we must remove our underwear wash it and hang it then get into our night clothes and then get into bed.We would somehow dodge and wear our under wear.The matron would come and randomly check it out.She will come and lift up our dresses if we had it on we would get a smack.Slowly they made us sleep without it.As you say that is more healthier.

I do usually wear underwear, while I'm sleeping, with the exception of a bra. Wearing a bra to sleep is uncomfortable. But that's the only underwear that I don't wear, when I go to sleep.
