The summer has been a hectic time for yours truly and while I have been trying out a bunch of new undershirts, I’ve had little time to share my thoughts in written word. As the summer is soon ending, I will have a bit more time on my hands and will be sharing some fantastic undershirt-related stories and will be posting reviews of all the undershirts I’ve been trying out lately.
In the meantime, I wanted to share a little piece about Sweat Management for Women that a fellow blogger and freind wrote about hyperhidrosis in women. Charmaine herself has hyperhidrosis and she’s created a wonderful blog that addresses the topic specifically for the female demographic. Although, guys you’ll also find some fantastic information on her site, so if you’re looking for information on excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, you should take a few minutes and visit Charmaine’s website!
Thanks Charmaine for putting together this article!
Sweat Management for Women: Foundation Wear Equals Freedom!
By Charmaine Conaghan
Foundation wear for women can be a complex subject. As women, we have the option to wear a multitude of different products to cinch, smooth, lift, conceal, and enhance various body parts. But what about managing and concealing unexpected or excessive sweating?
For the woman suffering from hyperhidrosis (excessive or unpredictable sweating), clothing choices can be severely limited. Finding something “safe” to wear on a daily basis that does not reveal sweat marks can make getting dressed every morning a tiresome and somewhat depressing chore. Many women are unaware of the wide range of choices in foundation wear that can absorb the sweat, thus enabling us to wear just about anything!
Undergarment sweat management for women can be boiled down to two basic items: the dress shield and the camisole. Sounds simple, right? You will be amazed to discover how many variations there are using these two little garments. There are disposable dress shields that can be taped or sewn into your outer garment, washable dress shields that come in varying degrees of protection, dress shields that can snap onto a bra strap, camisoles with dress shields sewn in, and little bolero-type garments that come with dress shields sewn in that are lighter than a camisole and allow you to wear just about any type of neckline. There is even a dress shield available that can be placed anywhere on the torso if you happen to sweat somewhere other than under the arms.
Additionally, all of these camisoles (and boleros, also called valaras) come in a variety of colors and fabric types: stretch lace, slip material, cotton jersey, ribbed knit, you name it. You also have the choice of the length, cut, fit, and neckline you need.
So, ladies, if you have ever found yourself in a store thinking you could never buy that silk blouse in that beautiful shade of blue, well, it’s time to think again. Given the wide range of sweat management foundation wear, you no longer need to tell yourself “I can’t” when it comes to what you can “safely” wear. Unless your credit card says so.
