There's a lot of things I love that make you sweat, but the truth is I cannot stand to overheat. I absolutely hate the feeling of your clothes trapping in all that heat in sweat, even when I'm working out. Luckily, there's the best cooling underwear for women — because a cool butt means a happy heart. At least in my world, it does.
Underwear that keeps you cool and dry is often a careful combination of the right material and the right construction. That pair of tight-knit flannel panties probably isn't your best bet when it comes to avoiding a sweaty butt. Bamboo and cotton, on the other hand, are natural and lightweight fabrics that easily wick sweat and allow for airflow. If you can get something that incorporates a breathable mesh design, that's even better.
Whether you're looking for athletic pairs for your workout or just underwear for people who sweat a lot, Amazon can help. They've got an extensive selection of colors, sizes, and technologically advanced undies. That's right — terms like thermo-regulating, Climacool, and X-Temp now describe your undergarments, and while they might sound like features on a space ship, they're actually just smart ways to keep your butt dry and comfy all day.
1. A Pair That's Made From Organically Grown Bamboo
These Boody Body EcoWear panties are moisture-wicking, ultra-breathable, and thermo-regulating — and that's because they're made of rayon from organically grown bamboo. They're seam-free, incredibly soft, and really comfy, too. "They also seem to stay cool in our hot Texas summers, and they hold up well in the washer and dryer," says one reviewer."
2. Bikini Briefs That Are Breathable, Anti-Microbial, & Resistant To Odors
Because they're breathable, antimicrobial, odor-resistant, and they've got moisture-wicking fabric, reviewers say, "When you put them on, the angels sing!" ExOfficio Give-N-Go bikini briefs are awesome for travelers, hikers, athletes, or just people who tend to sweat a lot, because they allow for tons of air flow and dry super fast.
3. Undies Made Of Silky Smooth Microfiber That Glides Against Skin & Clothing
"Cool and do not stick to outer-wear," says one reviewer about these Warner's No Pinching No Problems panties. That's because they're made from a silky soft microfiber that doesn't snag or dig in.
4. 100 Percent Cotton Plus Size Panties That Reviewers Call 'Life-Changing'
With 100 percent cotton and a soft interlock weave, these plus size cotton panties have reviewers saying, "these are the most comfortable panties I have ever worn." They've also got wide-tunneled elastic to avoid pinching and an extra-wide gusset.
5. Highly-Rated Undies That Reviewers Can't Stop Raving About
These panties use soft silky cooling panels to balance your body temperature, and they're virtually invisible underneath clothing. "Feels like you're not wearing undergarments," says one reviewer, while another raves, "just so darn comfortable."
6. Climacool Panties That Are Designed For Workouts
Specifically designed to be your go-to underwear during workouts, these adidas Cheeksters have climacool technology and micro mesh fabric. They keep you cool and breathable no matter what, and they have flat seams and no tags to avoid chafing.
7. A Thong With A Cooling Diamond-Weave Mesh
Less fabric usually means less heat anyway, but this ExOfficio Give-n-Go lacy thong is also created with a diamond-weave mesh fabric that allows for optimal air flow. It also dries in no time, making it super easy to care for while traveling, and is treated with Silvadur for odor resistance.
8. Hipsters With Special Technology That Adapts To Your Body Temperature
These Hanes X-Temp hipster panties are made with a special X-Temp technology that wicks moisture and actually adapts to your body, speeding or slowing down the cooling for all-day comfort. They've also got a comfort-waistband that stays put without rolling.
9. These Tagless Boyshorts That Are Made For Breathability
Fruit of the Loom Breathable Boyshorts (Sizes S-XL), $12-$21 (Pack of 4), Amazon
Because they're made from a breathable micromesh fabric, reviewers call these Fruit of the Loom boyshorts "cool and comfortable," and say won't stick to you as you go about your day. They're also tag-free, feature a cotton gusset, and have a stretchy waistband that won't dig into your skin.
10. A Three-Pack Of Panties With Cooling Technology That Wick Away Moisture
If you can't stand feeling wet throughout the day, these Comfort Choice cooling panties have a soft and innovative technology that wicks away moisture. They also have a full elastic waist and leg holes for comfort that moves with you.
11. Undies Made With 90 Percent Cotton, So They're Cool & Comfy
One reviewer calls these Bali brief panties "cool and comfortable in the Arizona heat," which is definitely saying something. They're made from a stretchy cotton that's breathable as well as soft, and the high-rise design keeps you covered front to back.
