Sweat Proof Shirts & Undershirts: The Ultimate Guide

If you’re looking for a comprehensive list of sweat proof shirts & undershirts, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s dive in.

I’ve been writing about this topic for a long time, and although there are several articles here that cover the topic, figured it would be good to collect all that information and put it into one article.

For sake of clarity, I’ll define the difference between sweat proof shirts and sweat proof undershirts.

  • Sweat Proof Shirt – An outerwear shirt that has some form of sweat blocking capability, or other capability to minimize or eliminate the appearance of sweat marks on the clothing
  • Sweat Proof Undershirt – Similar to a sweat proof shirt, but exclusively designed to be worn under existing shirts

Sweat Blocking & Preventing Sweat Marks

The main reason sweat proof clothing exists is to prevent visible sweat marks. Unless you’re working out, most find it embarrassing if their clothes show sweat rings or sweat patches.

The most common place people sweat is in the underarm area. However, those that sweat more than others can get sweat marks on their lower back, chest, and even their shoulders.

Of course some people sweat moreso from their bottom half, which results in visible sweat patches on your pants in the butt and on the back of the thighs. This article won’t cover the bottom region, but I do have one that covers the topic. Be sure to check out my Sweat Proof Underwear article for a list of the top underwear that eliminates visible sweat marks.

Sweat Proof Shirts

Neat Apparel

Neat Apparel utilizes a unique patented fabric technology to prevent visible sweat marks. When sweat comes in contact with the inside fabric, the Neat technology channels the sweat through a maze-like structure, allowing sweat to distribute farther and dry faster.

It also has a hydro-blocking functionality that prevents sweat from creating sweat patches on the outside surface. For heavy sweaters it may not block all of the sweat, but most of it.

They carry the following shirt products:

  • Men: Sweat blocking t-shirt & polo
  • Women: Sweat proof t-shirt

They also carry sweat proof undershirts, but I’ll mention those below in my undershirts section.

Sutran

Sutran is one of the first companies to come out with sweat proof apparel with all-over coverage. This is accomplished via two thin layers of fabric with their DriLook fabric technology that prevents sweat marks from appearing on the outside of the shirt.

They carry the following products:

  • Men: T-shirts, Polos, & Button-up shirts
  • Women: T-Shirts

Lawrence Hunt Performance Shirts

Lawrence Hunt takes a slightly different approach to hiding sweat rings. They construct their dress shirts with high performance moisture wicking underarm panels that dry rapidly.

As such, their shirts don’t block sweat from penetrating through, but the result could be similar since the underarms would dry quick and not show sweat marks.

They carry the following products:

  • Men: Polos & Button-up shirts
  • Women: Button-up shirts

Numi

Numi makes sweat proof shirts for women utilizing their Sweat-Secret fabric technology. The key to their sweat-blocking capability lies in their 3-layer underarm guards.

  • First layer wicks and absorbs the sweat
  • Second layer blocks the sweat
  • Outer layer matches the body of the shirt

NanoDri

NanoDri’s sweat proof polo for men utilizes their special nanotechnology to hide sweat patches. Constructed similar to their undershirts, these polos are constructed with two layers.

The first layer will wick and absorb the sweat from your body, and the outer layer will block the sweat from coming through — thus preventing visible sweat marks.

Sweat Proof Undershirts

I have a comprehensive list of sweat proof undershirts on my Top Sweat Management Solutions article. That said, here are some that are worth mentioning.

Neat Apparel

In addition to shirts and polos, Neat Apparel also makes sweat proof undershirts for men & women utilizing the same technology I mentioned above.

Found this comment on reddit from someone who recently tried a Neat Apparel undershirt:

Dude, before they arrived, I started wearing two undershirts in attempt to conceal the sweat. They did the job alright, except on days where I exert a lot of effort, a tiny unnoticeable spot on my shirt would be wet.

Whereas with these shirts, I’d run all day and there is absolutely no mark or sign. Seriously amazing.

Steep price obviously, but I’ll be damned if they didn’t do the job right. And the website were so nice, their customer service is excellent and they seem like good people.
