Several everyday objects have subtle or hidden meanings. For example, did you know that the small holes in the lock are to keep water from seeping in and damaging the locking mechanism? Did you know that the holes in the end of the pot handle were where you put your spoon? Funny, isn’t it? Anyway, the secret word we’re going to talk about today is small pockets in the grommet area of ​​women’s underwear.
You may not have known that your underwear has such a tiny pocket, but it probably does! Your first thought might be to hide or store something, but that’s not the case. First of all, there’s that little pocket area called a “gusset” that’s found in all women’s and men’s underwear. The underwire is designed to provide comfort and durability to the underwear, and for women, it is hygienic.
However, the real reason for this pocket is primarily because of “laziness”. Basically, not having to sew a single layer in this pocket saves time during production. Even if this seam isn’t sewn, it takes 10 seconds to produce one piece of underwear, but it certainly adds up and ultimately saves manufacturers money.
Cheap underwear almost always leaves one layer open to create pockets. However, more expensive underwear is likely to have both ends sewn shut, so you’ll rarely notice pockets. Anyway, this is one of those random but interesting tidbits we wanted to share with you!
