6 Sweat-Proof Shirts That Will Kick Pit Stains to the Curb Once and for All

Stacey Leasca

Though the dog days of summer are behind us, the sweaty days of fall are only beginning.

Each year, following Labor Day, I somehow become hopeful that the air will magically turn into the perfect crisp temperature, making each day more ideal than the last. However, as we all know, it’s not quite sweater weather (or cardigan weather) yet. And, even when it is, the outside temperature tends to be pretty different than your sweltering office and crowded commute. All these factors can lead to just about anyone having a bit of embarrassing underarm wetness.

But, there is a better way than grinning and bearing it: wearing sweat-wicking, breathable, and sweat-hiding clothing. We turned to our favorite basics provider Amazon to find the best pieces you should add to your wardrobe to make sure you never have another sweat-stained t-shirt again. Scroll down to shop our top picks.

One fabric choice every sweat-prone person needs to know about is bamboo.

And, the hemline technology to make sure it stays tucked in all day long. The shirt comes in three colors and style variations, so you’re sure to find one that aligns with your wardrobe needs.
