The Best Underwear For People Who Sweat A Lot, Because The Struggle Is Real

Let’s be real here: Everyone sweats. If you’re someone who sweats quite a lot, especially in the nether regions, you’ll likely benefit from sweat absorbent underwear. And just to be clear — wearing underwear that is comfortable, cute, and keeps things cool down there is nothing to be embarrassed about. First of all, any excuse to buy new underwear is a good one in book book. And second of all, wearing special underwear from time to time or sweating in general, or even on a daily basis, does not mean you’re a weirdo. You’re a human and you’re doing what humans do. But now that we have that out of the way, I know what you're thinking. And yes, sweating a lot can kind of suck sometimes.

Not only can sweating can sometimes make you feel a little uncomfortable, but it can also make you self-conscious depending on what type of outfit you're wearing. And of course there’s the whole chafing issue (which when it comes to between the legs, is a nightmare), but there’s also the problem of sweat patches. Rocking sweat patches on your shirt isn’t all that bad, but a sweaty crotch can easily be mistaken for a whole host of other things. So here’s some awesome underwear for ladies who sweat a lot, so you can get on with your life without glancing down every two seconds.
