5 Interesting Facts About Sweating Reading The Best Fabrics for Excessive Sweating 3 minutes Next Sweat Proof T-Shirts and Anxiety

If you sweat excessively and you’re heading out to work, school or for a night out on the town then you know that what clothes you wear can impact how that event goes. Wearing the wrong materials can lead to uncomfortable sensations and embarrassing sweat stains.

We’re breaking down the 5 best fabrics for excessive sweating so you know what to look for when you’re shopping for clothes as someone with hyperhidrosis.

1. Cotton

A lightweight and high quality cotton is breathable. This type of material allows air to flow giving you the best chance to cool off and for the fabric to dry faster, which helps eliminate sweat stains.

2. Micromodal

Now that we understand the benefits of cotton, it’s important to talk about micromodal.

The fact is, micromodal is significantly softer than cotton and is more than 50% better than cotton at absorbing water. If you’re sweating a lot, you need to get familiar with this fabric and seek it out in stores.

3. Nylon

You may have noticed a lot of athleticwear is composed of nylon. A big reason for this is because of how quickly this material dries, not to mention it’s stretchy and light. Take note that nylon can help hide sweat stains and make you feel more confident

4. Merino Wool

Merino wool does an incredible job at taking sweat away from the skin as vapor. It has been said that merino wool takes away moisture better than any other fiber.

Wearing a T-Shirt made of merino wool will regulate your temperature better than most cottons.

5. Linen

A major benefit of linen is that it doesn’t stick to your body. Anyone who sweats excessively knows that space between you and your clothing is the best gift.

However, we don’t want to only wear baggy clothes. Finding a T-Shirt with linen can help give you that extra bit of space, breathability and absorption that you’ve been looking for. 

In making our unique sweat proof t-shirts, we used a lot of these helpful absorbent and breathable fabrics in our integrated underarm sweat pad. If you’re going shopping for clothes to help relieve symptoms of hyperhidrosis, we definitely reccomend looking into clothes with the fabrics listed on this page.
