I apply certain-dri roll on at night before I have to dress up in button downs. I’m not sure if it’s the fabric, the heat of wearing a suit jacket on top, or just being nervous for whatever event required a button-down, but I find that certain-dri saves me (and, maybe Too Much Information, I can be very sweaty, too). I still apply regular deoderant in the morning, but that roll-on at night is a life-saver.

I don’t have any other tips besides maybe wear a shirt under it? I am sorry though! I hope someone else can be more helpful.

Are your shirts cotton or polyester? Cotton will breathe and give you air flow helping to keep you dry. What are you wearing over the shirt? Is it synthetic and not breathable?

You can get washable, reuseable dress shields or these disposable ones


I would look at changing antiperspirants also as clearly, yours is not working for you.Is it an antiperspirant or just a deodoranat?

@mightywombat:  Whenever something is tight under my arms it makes me sweat there- like it stimulates it.  I have no problem if something is not tailored high up my arm.  Darling Husband wears an undershirt (a tshirt, but you could wear something nicer, with sleeves) and that helps him.  He used to walk to work and would be sweaty when he got there but this really helped.

I always wear a t-shirt under a woven shirt. And if I’m walking, I will bring an extra undershirt to change into.

From my experience, panty liners work just as well as dres shields – just stick them to the shirt and go!
