Which Color T-Shirt Shows Sweat More?

T-shirts are probably the single item of clothing that we wear most often when we sweat. Almost every activity that makes you sweat is an activity where you typically wear a T-shirt. Some people are very self-conscious about showing that they sweat, even though it is a normal physical reaction. Therefore, in the interest of image, it is useful to know which color T-shirt shows sweat more than others. That way you can avoid wearing that particular color if you know you are going to sweat a lot.

Gray and other light pastel colors are the T-shirts that show sweat the most. It is very easy to see wet circles and trails of sweat with a light colored T-shirt as it shows up darker than the rest of the shirt. White T-shirts do not show sweat much at all when they are wet, nor do dark colors as they typically do not change color significantly when wet. Therefore if you are going to break a sweat, opt for a white T-shirt or a dark T-shirt to minimize others knowing that you are perspiring.

White T-shirts show annoying discolored sweat stains more than any other color. Even though wet perspiration doesn’t show up prominently on white T-shirts at the time you are sweating, after the fact is another story. Unsightly yellow rings under the arms and ring around the collar are the telltale signs of sweat and they are most noticeable on white. Proper care of your white T-shirts can eliminate this issue.

There are plenty of ways to get rid of sweat stains from your T-shirts. Some of the most useful stain removal techniques are common household things like bleach, vinegar, white paste toothpaste, shampoo for oily hair, dish detergent or hydrogen peroxide. Commercially produced stain removal treatments can also help to keep your T-shirts looking good and stain-free. If you pre-treat your shirts regularly in the armpit and collar areas before laundering them, you will avoid having to deal with tough sweat stains altogether.

It is essential to have a good variety of T-shirts to wear when you are working out, doing yard work or just playing. It is much more fun to be able to change up your look and not have to worry about sweat showing. Have some customized T-shirts made up in white and a variety of dark colors so you always look like you are as cool as can be. Your custom-made sweat T-shirts can say anything you want them to. You can have a favorite picture, drawing or design on them. You can brag about your accomplishments or those of someone you are proud of.

How to Avoid Showing Sweat by Wearing T-Shirts as Undershirts

There are a number of fabrics that show sweat easily. Most of them will show sweat to some degree. However, the kinds of shirts that many people have to wear to a work environment make it easy for the sweat to show. To avoid a sweat stain, there is a way to take advantage of a better type of fabric to keep the sweat from showing through.

A t-shirt is often worn underneath another shirt as a way to keep sweat from going through to the top shirt. This is effective for several reasons. The first is simply that sweat has a lesser chance of showing through two layers of fabrics than showing through only one. This is true of any fabric, even if the top layer is another t-shirt.

The second reason, however, is the reason that people choose t-shirts as their undershirts of choice. Cotton is an absorbent and breathable fabric that will take sweat away from the skin easily. It will allow the sweat to dissipate quickly through the pores in the fabric. This makes it work like a sponge when worn under another shirt and keeps the sweat from going to the outer shirt and being visible to the world.

There are some cases in which this will work better than others, however. If the outer shirt is a little larger than the t-shirt worn under it, the results will be better. This will allow a little air in flow between the two shirts. The air flow will allow the sweat to evaporate more easily and to keep it from seeping through to the outer shirt.

Wearing a tight shirt over the t-shirt or wearing an outer shirt that fits just as closely as the t-shirt will not have the same results. Without even a small layer of air in between the two shirts, the outer shirt will start to show the sweat far sooner than if there is a layer of air.

If the weather is warm, it can be a problem to wear two shirts at the same time. It can actually cause more sweat, making it harder to then hide the sweat. The solution for warm weather days is to wear an outer shirt that is unbuttoned, leaving the t-shirt underneath it visible. This is a casual look that isn’t too warm but will hide any sweat that may occur. This look isn’t always acceptable for the office, but the look can be worn on casual Fridays and to more casual occasions.

Another variation of this in a business casual office is to wear a t-shirt and a loose-fitting button-up shirt on the outside, but with the top few buttons left undone. This is a casual look that can be offset by a formal-looking outer shirt. A clean, starched shirt that has a few inches of t-shirt peeking out from the top will still look business-like enough for most offices. And, it will keep you from being the guy in the office with the sweat stains.
