Secret Clinical is the one that I love.

Have you tried the stronger “clinical” strength brands? I would buy one asap and test it before the wedding to make sure you don’t have any type of reaction.

Certain Dri…the clinical brands of Secret and other brands did nothing for me. I sweat through everything and Certain Dri has been a godsend. Put it on at night before you sleep, then regular deodorant/antiperspirant in the morning.

If you are really paranoid about this, you can get disposable underarm shields that you adhere to the underside of the garment

Certain Dri (AM and PM) work ‘the best’ for me… not 100% but WAYYY better than the Secret and Dove clinical protection stuff which do nothing for me. Certain Dri is also a lot less expensive =D

Certain Dri plus dress shields should keep you from pitting out…you can also carry a little thing of baby powder in your purse and dash into the bathroom to dab some under your arms if you feel yourself getting damp.

I didn’t find the clinical strength stuff actually stopped sweating.  It reduced pit sweat, but just transfered all the armpit sweat to other areas of my body.  It is also not great for you to not sweat.

Get the armpit shields if you really want to avoid stains.

@julies1949:  these are amazing.   I discovered them when I was working in Japan, and keep some on hand for formal occasions.

I second the Certain Dri, I’ve heard really good things about it.

I really want to see a long sleeved Bridesmaid or Best Man dress…Do you have pics?

Driclor works well. But mind for the stinging/red marks you can get if used straight after shaving.

lol I’m wondering about a long sleeve Bridesmaid or Best Man dress too. Which one is it? I just imagine some 80’s horror dress!

i use certain dri at night for anti-perspirant and one of theose mineral deodorants in the morning for odor control.

it works most of the time, but sometimes i do get very hot and sweat, espeically if i’m nervous.

none of those “clinical protection” antiperspirants from dove, secret, etc. did anything for me.

hope this helps!
