This Is What You Should Wear With Dresses If You Sweat A Lot (It's Not Deodorant!)

We all wish for summer to come but then when it does we complain about things like underboob sweat. We can’t help ourselves! (With the complaining OR the sweating.) There really is such a thing as a *too hot* day–especially when you have to put on work clothes and attempt to look “put together” all day. This is nearly impossible for those of us who sweat a lot and get pit stains in our pretty silk dresses and tops. So–what is a girl to do? No, the answer is not ten extra layers of antiperspirant–it’s dress shields!

Okay, please tell me you know what a dress shield is. It’s the best thing EVER! They are disposable liners with an adhesive side that you put inside shirts, jackets, cardigans, etc., around the armpit area. They’re made of moisture wick fabric so they stay dry and they also reduce odor and stains. They are discreet too–I’ve been known to cut mine to even fit inside a sleeveless dress. Genius!

Several companies make them–my personal favorite is Hollywood Fashion Tape’s version which is available at Target:

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Garment Shields ($7.19 for 10)

So–will you try one?
