Hyperhidrosis friendly apparel is catching on as an organic way of managing excessive sweat without invasive treatments, antiperspirant chemicals or iontophoresis. In last 5 or so years, there has been explosion of various technology led apparel brands focusing on this niche, resulting in a pretty wide choice for the consumers.
ItsDri is one of the latest entrants in the sweat proof undershirt market, and this post is a review of the ItsDri undershirt based on the sample I received. Please note that as of now, ItsDri only sells one type of undershirt (V-Neck, Lenzing Modal fabric with Copper Infused cotton inner layer) . They also plan to launch a women's line in near future.
Sweat Proof Undershirt – Review Criteria
To ensure consistency across multiple sweat proof undershirts, I've kept the following considerations while reviewing this category of products:
- Sweat proof Performance – does it prevent sweat stains?
- Odor Resistance – does the undershirt prevent the odor buildup?
- Fabric quality – does the fabric feels good on skin, and is it durable?
- Comfort – does it fit well? Is it comfortable to wear all day?
- Price – its an undershirt after all! 🙂
So, how does ItsDri undershirts stack up?
Bottomline – ItsDri sweat proof undershirt is one of the best sweat proof undershirt available in the market today. The fabric is outstanding and it is super comfortable to wear all day. It looks great on you with or without an outershirt and performs remarkably well in terms of sweat proofing. ItsDri is also offering a 60 day no questions asked refund (including shipping) – I have not tried that option, but if they keep that promise, I think its an absolute no brainer to try.
At $25, its super competitively priced and I do hope its not just an introductory pricing that they will jack up in coming months. Anyways, as of now, its a great deal IMHO.
UPDATE: ItsDri has decided to offer HHN readers and exclusive 5% discount on orders of 2 or more undershirt. Use the coupon code HHN5 here
Detailed review of Its Dri Sweat Proof Undershirt
Here is a detailed review of ItsDri undershirt
Its Dri – Sweat Proof Performance
During the review period, I wore this undershirt in the month of June in NYC with temperatures often exceeding 80 degree fahrenheit, and was in open outdoor spaces as well as cramped indoor spaces.
All in all, the ItsDri undershirt held up very well. The stain marks did not show up on my shirt even for once over a 7 days period. The inner lining did feel a bit damp at times, but nothing that was beyond a minor annoyance.
Its Dri – Odor Resistance
This is one areas where ItsDri clearly shines and is head and shoulders above its competition. With the copper infused cotton inner lining with anti-bacterial properties, the difference was clear. The undershirt was nearly odor-less after a full day of usage in pretty tough conditions. With an overnight break (outside in), the undershirt could practically be used for two days without feeling gross (no, I did not do it – just saying that you could!)
All in all, I was pretty impressed with its ability to not just prevent sweat marks, but also that it did not stink at all!
Its Dri – Fabric Quality
As of now, ItsDri comes in single fabric option – lenzing modal with copper infused inner layer. So this undershirt compares with the higher end options offered by other sweat proof undershirt brands where the basic option is usually plain cotton.
With that said, the fabric feels top notch and the undershirt is good enough to be worn as a tee shirt. Modal is a type of rayon, a semi-synthetic cellulose fiber made by spinning reconstituted cellulose, in this case often from beech trees. Modal fabric is extremely hard-wearing and keeps its shape and finish, even after frequent washing. These properties make it useful as an underwear fabric. Unlike garments made from synthetic fibers like nylon and polyester, Modal underwear does not trap perspiration and odors. Modal is up to 50 percent more absorbent than cotton, so clothes never feel sweaty and sticky.
Its Dri uses 5% spandex, along with Modal to provide the stretchiness of the undershirt. This undershirt has a very premium feel to it and feels much less bulky than some other brands I have reviewed here
ItsDri Review- Comfort
ItsDri feels super soft on the skin, thanks to the Lenzing Modal fabric. It clings to the skin and does not feel bulky at all. The underarm area, of course has the 3 layers and is a bit thicker, but even that is a bit subdued.
The undershirt feels cool to wear and does not feel uncomfortable even when a bit damp with sweat as some of the cotton udnershirts do.
In terms of fit, this shirt is outstanding – its as good as an outer layer t-shirt! You won't be terribly disappointed in being seen in one.
Its Dri – Price
ItsDri sweat proof undershirt retails for $25 (free shipping worldwide). At that price, and give that it compares to the higher end options offered by other brands, I think the pricing is especially competitive. Similar undershirts from other brands retails for about $30 – $40, so I think that ItsDri got its pricing right.
They also offer a 60 days, no questions asked full refund (including shipping) – so you are protected for most part

Verdict on ItsDri Sweat Proof Undershirt
If you are looking for a sweat proof undershirt, try ItsDri Sweat Proof Undershirt. With its excellent Sweat Proof performance, anti odor properties, premium fabric, great fit and competitive pricing, its difficult to get wrong with this one. Only bad thing is that they totally neglected half of population by not offering a women's version of the undershirt that many of their competitors do. Hopefully that is corrected soon.

ordered on 11/11 came on 12/1. Told it would take 9 days, took 21. Would expect better after paying $25 for an undershirt...
This looks interesting - but they get 1 star in my opinion because they thought it was OK to ignore women altogether.Hope they get in their senses soon. Till then, there are many other brands who decided to cater to women too.
Love these undershirts... can't believe how dry my underarms are now. No more ruined white shirts!
