wearing protective "waterproof" under shirts

Recommended Posts

I have not had ETS, but am considering it for FB.    I wonder, if many people complain about CS, could you just manage the social aspect of this issue with those athletic dry shirts that keep the sweat from permeating your clothes?   I know it isn't a cure, but would help socially.   Has anyone tried this?

I haven't tried this nor needed to but it's a possibility. An easier route is just to wear a top and then a shirt over it perhaps? If it's for fb and you don't have any sweating problems prior to surgery then cs shouldn't be that much of a problem but it's all guess work until you have the cut x

I wear under t-shirts and tank-tops all the time, but generally go for cotton ones.  Tops like those produced by Under Armour 'wick' sweat from the body, but the problem with this is I find the sweat moves through these tops to the outer-shirt, so you end up with stained outer shirts.  Cotton undertops however 'hold' sweat until it can dry naturally (not easy when you've got a top over it, but it does happen eventually!) so that a lot of times it doesn't filter through to the outer garment, thus helping you avoid the embarrassing sweaty back signs etc.  Hope this all makes sense.  Anyway, a company I use a lot is good old Fruit of the Loom, you can get like three cotton tank-tops for a tenner from eBay.  Another great thing with wearing a tank top underneath (rather than proper t-shirt) is it means at least your upper-arms are free and cool (i.e. only covered by one layer rather than two), which helps ever so slightly with temperature regulation.
