Start using clinical strenth deodorant now to decrease underarm sweating.

And if you’re really serious about it you could ask your doctor about botox injections to decrease sweating.

Or just keep lots of tissues handy on the wedding day in case of sweaty-ness. Good luck!

you could go to your dr and get Rx deoderant. it works awesome, when I had it I used it on both underarms and under my boobs…I know a little strange but those suckers get sweaty!

first of all… WOW dress !! I loooooooooooove it !!! I think you should be ok ! like PP said, start using clinical strength deodorant to help prevent it. On the big day, keeping tissues around or a handfan could very well do the trick. But dont think about it too much. Remember to enjoy your day !! 🙂

I agree with the above posters – get a clinical strength deodorant from the pharamacy. I had some pretty bad under-arm sweating and the deodorant stopped it, it was fantastic! Maybe go see your doctor to find out all your options too, he/she might be able to recommend something for you.

Beautiful dress! This is going to sound weird, but I read it on the Glamour website a few months ago, and apparently it works great. They recommended getting the clinical strength deodorant, applying it at night after showering, then adding a piece of clear plastic wrap (yes, the type you use to cover food) on your armpits. Then put on a shirt that’s tight enough to keep the wrap in place while you sleep. Repeat a few times before the wedding.

It sounds crazy, but apparently helps reduce sweat by helping the deodorant penetrate deeper into your skin. I haven’t tried it myself, but who knows? It might actually work.

I’m considering buying and using the hyperhydrosis contol wipes by MedeTate, but they are very expensive.

@mcklough:  I do the same thing when I am wearing certain shirts! You do what you gotta do!
