    I don't sweat that much. When I run, I takes about 20 mins before I start to sweat and even then, not much.

    However, I do under stress- for example, when in the room being grilled by people above my level. I do sweat then. I prefer full cotton since it absorbs moisture much better but I also do one other thing. I start to sip chilled water and in case you are in a situation like that, it works incredibly well by lowering the body temp. I overdid that once in a 3-hour meeting and was shivering by the end. I had some hot tea to compensate. I would not recommend blocking your pores. Wear a thicker cotton tee.

    The sweat etc clings to the arm pit hair and that should be avoided. An antiperspirant reduces/removes the cause in addition.

    It is all part of more targeted and proactive hygiene regime

    I've made a study of the best quality undershirts. Don't ask, it's just something that's very important to me. A great dress shirt without a solid undershirt is like drinking a great quality beer that's warm. I've bought them all over the years. The best is head and shoulders above the rest and will surprise you. It's JC Penny's 100% cotton heavy weight Stafford undershirts. Don't get distracted by the slightly cheaper poly blends. Fill your wardrobe with JC Penny's heavyweight 100% cotton underwear and don't look back!

    Hilarious thread! Search google for 3XDRY tshirts maybe something will come up. 3XDRY is wicking that doesn't reach the surface so it would be perfect for undershirts. I should start making them as I often have the same problem. Good luck, soggy armpits suck.

    [irony] Oh, wow, antiperspirant! Of course, we all must have simply never heard of it before. Now all our problems are solved. We are saved. [/irony]

    Antiperspirants just don't do the job for all of us. If they do for you, then be grateful you're lucky. And while shaving may get rid of odour, it does nothing for sweating. If anything, with the hair gone, the sweat just streams out and runs down your sides and arms. And if that sounds wildly unreaslistic, then you don't have the problem that some of us, including the OP, have. Again, be grateful.

    AJust liberally apply a salt based spray that's unscented. Halfway through the day, wipe your pits and reapply the spray. Let it absorb into your skin then put your shirt back on.
