Underarm Sweat Pads
Armpit pads might not conjure the most glamorous image, but for light to moderate sweaters, they can offer added protection for those unruly sweat events.
So What Are Underarm Sweat Pads?
Sweat pads come in a few different forms. Here are some types currently on the market:
- Garment shields that fasten around the torso
- Underarm shields that adhere directly to the skin
- Sweat pads that stick to the inside of your clothing
- Pads that must be worn with snaps, tapes, pins or sewn in
Armpit shields can be found in the form of peel-and-stick disposable pads or washable and reusable pads and work best when applied to dry, clean-shaven armpits. However, the pads do not work for everyone.
The Dark Side of Underarm Sweat Pads
Sticking sweat pads to your skin and clothing can create all sorts of problems. For example:
- They are often visible through your shirt
- Armpit pads can leave a rash or cause skin darkening
- Once a pad is stuck, it can’t be readjusted
- The pads can be painful to remove from the skin
- Sweat loosens their adhesive qualities, causing leakage
- They don’t always stay in place and require embarrassing maintenance
- The adhesive can leave a sticky residue that ruins your clothing
- They can be difficult to remove from clothing
If you experience extreme underarm sweating or have sensitive skin, underarm sweat pads are not recommended.
The Only Integrated, Truly Sweat Proof Underarm Barrier
To fight the appearance of sweat marks, Thompson Tee co-founders Billy and Randy spent more than 10 years designing the only patented sweat proof barrier called Hydro-Shield, which is embedded in the underarms of every Thompson Tee to fight sweat all day long.
Hydro-Shield sweat proof technology consists of an ultra-thin and durable hydrophilic membrane within a fully integrated layering and stitching system engineered to block moisture.
This lightweight layering system traps heat and moisture and allows it to evaporate rather than seep through to your outer layer – providing relief from wet marks and yellowing that quickly destroy your clothing and your confidence.
And the sweat-blocking effect won’t wash off over time. The sweat proof properties are native to the shirt and aren’t made with chemical treatments found in many water-repelling fabrics.
Unlike bulky underarm sweat pads, the sweat proof technology stays put throughout the day, so you don’t have to fuss with adjusting the placement or worry whether it’s visible to others. Most importantly, you eliminate embarrassing wet marks and pit stains – all while wearing a comfortable and breathable T-shirt.
