We recognize that you can break into a sweat anywhere and anytime and you will need a good undershirt to come to your rescue. For those who suffer from excess sweating, these undershirts also come in handy in day-to-day usage. You can don this undershirt for different occasions:

  • During an interview
  • During a business meeting
  • When pitching or marketing a product to a potential client
  • On dates
  • At the gym
  • In school
  • At your wedding

It all depends on whether you want that extra layer of protection.

How does the NGwear sweat proof undershirt work?

This undershirt uses advanced technology to deliver the desired results. First it is made of micro modal fabric which is 50% more adsorbent than cotton which is commonly used in other undershirts. 5% Spandex is also incorporated to give the undershirt a unique design as well as stretching it so you can get the perfect fit. This fabric is the best to use since it is the preferred choice when it comes to inner wear for both men and women. Furthermore, it is extremely soft and does not cause irritation. It is extremely comfortable.
Secondly, these fibers are then permanently bound to silver which works to regulate your body temperature. Whenever you feel hot, the silver absorbs the heat. It also keeps you warm when it is cold. Thirdly, the silver also counteracts bacteria to get rid of the odor that comes with sweat. The bacteria are unable to increase in number through multiplication once they come into contact with silver.

Finally, each one of these unique undershirts also has an inner waterproof layer that helps to prevent sweat stains on your outer garment. When you sweat, the inner layer, serving the armpits, back and chest, provides a layer of protection so that the sweat does not penetrate through and onto your shirts although you still feel damp inside. This inner layer does all these while still maintaining optimum airflow.

What makes it any different from other undershirts ?

These undershirts are the best because they achieve exactly what they are made to. Unlike other undershirts, they prevent sweat stains on your dress shirt or other outer garments.  They are able to achieve all this while still providing comfort and a slim fit that makes the undershirt unnoticeable. In addition to all this, you get to eliminate bad odor without having to douse yourself with chemical-ridden colognes.

How do I take care of my NGwear undershirt?

Taking care of your undershirt will determine how long it lasts. While it is made from durable material that can withstand many washes without aging or fading, you need to learn how to properly take care of your undershirt.

 

 First, turn the undershirt inside out before you begin washing it. Secondly, ensure that you use cold water to wash the shirt. Use your regular detergent and stain remover while steering away from bleach and other harsh cleaning agents. Avoid hot water and high temperatures as it will ruin your undershirt.

Thirdly, ensure that you put the washing machine on low cycle. You do not want to crumple up, stretch or damage your undershirt by using higher settings. The undershirt needs you to be gentle. Proceed to hang your undershirt for drying. Do not use the dryer unless it is no low heat since heat will damage it. If possible, use a horizontal rack instead of a vertical one to ensure that your undershirt does not stretch out.

Finally, desist from ironing the undershirt as the high heat will damage the waterproof layer rendering your undershirt useless.

What are the advantages of Slim Fit undershirt?

Slim Fit enables the undershirt to be more discreet whenever you wear it.  For those who prefer loser undershirt, we recommend you buy one size bigger. But if you like body fit to give a nicer and sharper look then buy according to your size. Whichever one you buy, we guarantee that you will get a premium quality undershirt. You can go through our website to get the full guide on how to choose the right NGwear style and size.

Do you guarantee that your undershirts are truly sweat proof?

Of course, it is 100% sweat proof. It blocks sweat completely. We are reputed for producing a great design that makes use of sweat-proof material that is clinically tested to prevent moisture from passing through. NGwear undershirt doesn’t lose effectiveness overtime and blocks 100% sweat stains even after many washes.

What is the difference between the sweat proof underarm barrier and the sweat pads?

It is a known fact that sweat pads do not absorb all sweat and allow moisture to evaporate. What this means is that sweat will cause the sweat pads to lose its stickiness and thus become heavy as the day goes by. However, NGwear’s sweat proof underarm barrier is the only patented technology that has been tested and confirmed to absorb sweat completely. It works by absorbing and releasing sweat to the atmosphere through the process of evaporation, making sweat not to stain your outer shirt. In addition, unlike sweat pad that needs adjusting after a particular period, NGwear’s sweat proof underarm barrier does not need adjusting.

Can I machine-wash my undershirt?

Sure. You can wash the NGwear undershirt in a washing machine, either warm or cold water won’t cause any harm to the shirt. Similarly, you can also dry our shirt in a low or medium heat source. However, we recommend that you should turn the shirt inside out to properly clean and dry the fabric that is exposed to the body. You can hang it in a line for maximum sun drying. Please, try as much as possible to avoid the use of bleach, non-chlorine bleach, bleach alternatives, or any bleaching byproduct, so that it won’t compromise our sweat proof technology. Dry cleaning can also compromise the sweat proof technology, so it is advisable NOT to dry clean our undershirts. Furthermore, the enormous heat from the electric iron can compromise the sweat proof technology, therefore, do not iron the undershirts. Please check the label at the neck of the shirt.

NGwear is starting to smell. What should I do?
There is no sweat that does not smell. However, for you to prevent odor from your shirt, turn the shirt inside out when washing and drying. This will ensure that the part that is exposed to your body is properly washed and dried. Also, before washing, you can also preheat the shirt at the underarm region (that part that normally touches your skin) by applying non-bleaching agent. In addition, to lessen the odor, you can use “hot” water to wash the shirt periodically. For tough odor, make use of distilled white vinegar when pre heating the underarm region. The vinegar smell will stop after sometime.
After Laundering, will the NGwear undershirt shrink?
When you compare our undershirt to the traditional undershirt, the level of shrinkage is not the same. The anticipated shrinkage of our undershirt has already been factored into its designed. It will shrink a bit; however, it will be to the designated size available on our size chart. For our slim fit undershirt, 95% premium micro modal and 5% of spandex is used, meaning the shrinkage level will be around 8%, compared to the 15% of the traditional undershirt.

We advise that all our undershirts should be properly washed before wearing them. Washing will tighten the undergarment’s fibers and that makes it comfortable for your usage. Our undershirts are made of the high quality ultra-soft material, which will give maximum comfort during usage.
