Time For A Micro Dose: Why MicroModal Makes Great Underwear

by Nate Charny

What material is your underwear made of? Go ahead and check the tag, I’ll wait. If you’re like me, then 1) You probably are wearing uncomfortable cotton underwear, and 2) You definitely hurt your back twisting around to check the tag. Unfortunately I can’t help with your back (or mine), but lucky for you, there’s a magic material you may have never heard of that’s going to change everything you know about underwear.

What is MicroModal fabric?

MicroModal is a semi-synthetic viscose rayon fabric. It’s called MicroModal because that sounds way cooler and a lot less nerdy than “semi-synthetic viscose rayon.” Yea, this fabric has a killer PR team. Some people confuse rayon with polyester, but polyester is made entirely of synthetic material, whereas rayon is made from natural materials that undergo a chemical manufacturing and refinement process. I promise the rest of this article is more exciting than that last sentence.

What are the benefits of MicroModal fabric?

MicroModal fabric is so comfortable and luxurious that it should be called “MicroSoft” – unfortunately Bill Gates won’t let us. Its silky softness is smooth on your skin and is naturally moisture wicking. It provides a snug, stretchy fit while still being lightweight enough to offer unmatched breathability. Despite its delicateness, MicroModal fabric is durable enough to survive the washing machine without losing elasticity or fading. MicroModal fabric also helps you last longer in bed and makes sex more pleasurable. Ok, those last two are made up but it’s still a pretty good list.

Micro Biology: How is MicroModal fabric made?

Got wood? Then you’re off to a good start. MicroModal starts as cellulose that’s extracted from birch, oak, and beech trees. That’s right, it’s all natural, baby! The cellulose gets turned into yarn during a chemical process that sounds complicated, so Google it if you’re interested. Then the yarn is woven and MicroModal fabric is born.

As you can see, cotton underwear is pretty much your last resort when it comes to comfort. Silk sounds nice but good luck washing silk underwear. They’re essentially single-use. And if you HAVE to wear underwear made from sandpaper, make sure you spring for a high grit. At least 800.

Cotton Shmotton: Is MicroModal fabric really better than cotton?

  • Fact: MicroModal fabric is three times softer than cotton.

Size Matters: Is MicroModal fabric the same as Modal fabric?

Ah yes the classic conundrum of Modal vs MicroModal. Stay with me on this one because it’s going to get pretty technical. The fibers used in MicroModal fabric are SMALLER than the fibers used to make Modal fabric. I recommend reading the previous sentence a few times until the concept really sinks in.

A helpful comparison is to think of underwear fabric like beef. MicroModal is filet mignon. The best of the best. Modal fabric is hamburger. It gets the job done. And cotton is cow poop. Probably best to avoid rubbing it on your body.
