Why Is There A Gusset In My Underwear?
Some of our items do have a piece of fabric, usually triangular in shape, inserted in a garment where added strength or freedom of movement is needed. Due to the fact that many of our items are made of fine stretchy fabric a gusset has been added. Doing this it assures you the comfort, strength and movement in your garment that is so necessary. This is especially true in our skimpier garments where a gusset is most always needed. Some of our other items do not have a gusset due to the fact the some of the new fabrics around today move and react differently when worn. Gussets are not just for women’s items but for all items that require this level of comfort and movement in their underwear!
