Sweat stains under the arms are not uncommon, especially in summer. Special anti-sweat shirts are designed to remedy the unsightly stains and unpleasant body odor. To avoid this problem in the future, we’ve compared four of these t-shirts.

Whether in summer temperatures or in winter in heavily heated rooms: sweat stains are a daily nuisance for many people. While sweating while exercising is still generally accepted, things are very different when it comes to a job interview or a celebratory reception. The unsightly stains immediately catch the eye, especially on light-colored shirts.

Antiperspirant underwear should help for a few hours against the dark spots that form, which develop unpleasant odors over time. The right shirt can also help against the unsightly salt crusts that slowly form. In the following table, we present four products that have all been rated at least four out of five possible stars on Amazon.

Most antiperspirant garments work on the same principle. Specially sewn-in pads in the armpit area ensure that body fluids are absorbed at an early stage, preventing unwanted stains on clothing and unpleasant odours.

However, if you decide to buy an antiperspirant shirt, there are a few things you should keep in mind. On the one hand, the material of the shirt plays an important role. Because some synthetic fibers promote sweating and thus spread an unpleasant odor. Cotton shirts, on the other hand, absorb the liquid not only through the pads, but also through the fabric. The fit of the shirt is also very important, because sweat can only be absorbed well if the pads fit snugly.

A sweat-absorbing shirt can serve well both in hot offices and during intense physical activity and prevent unwanted stains. For this purpose, it also seems sensible to buy the garments in different colors in order to be able to adapt them well to the wardrobe.

After wearing, the anti-perspirant shirt should be washed at at least 30 degrees Celsius. However, higher temperatures are better.

For this comparison, a specialist editor from our partner CHIP.de examined test reports from other publications as well as the most popular offers (“best sellers”) and customer opinions from online retailers. Based on this, the product selection was made. For the selection of the top devices, models with more than four stars and a reasonably high number of ratings come into question. A selection of customer reviews was read and devices were selected that, based on the professional assessment, meet the needs of the users. The products have not been tested in the CHIP test center.

All products that the CHIP test center had in the laboratory can be found in this list of the best. Products that have also been tested by our other cooperation partners can be found in the test
