I was fortunate enough to receive a product sample to test out from Billy Thompson, president of The Thompson Tee. This is a T shirt made specifically for those who suffer from excessive underarm sweating, to the point that they soak through their shirt. People who sweat just a normal amount will also enjoy this shirt, too.
My shirt arrived promptly via FedEx and the packaging was in good condition and was very explanatory. I appreciate good packaging and copy. I want to know exactly why something is so good, what it can do for me, and why I can’t live without it. The Thompson Tee offers the following:
– Hydro-Shield technology: their own genius invention that prevents wet marks from reaching the second/outer layer of clothing so that you can feel confident the entire day as you wear the shirt
– Made from clinical-grade material (note, do NOT bleach the shirt when you wash it)
– Comfort and coolness: the shirt is tagless, very soft, and wicks moisture away from your armpits
– It comes in a crew neck or V neck style. I tested the crew neck version.
– Classified as a medical device by the FDA
– They use recycled materials and their textile process doesn’t emit any VOCs which are harmful to the environment
The Thompson Tee is guaranteed to keep you comfortable and confident
I wanted to make sure I picked a good day to wear the shirt so I could really see how it performed. I chose the day it snowed oh, like 22 inches. This amount of snow equates to massive amounts of shoveling. So, I wore the Thompson Tee under a zip-up fleece, one I knew wouldn’t breathe very well, and then I wore my winter coat over it when I shoveled the snow multiple times. I also wore the shirt to bed, and since I typically wake up sweaty at least once at night, I wanted to see how that would work, too.
Well, let me tell you. The Thompson Tee WORKS. I thought it would be bulky and uncomfortable to wear when I first took it out of the packaging. The underarm sections of the shirt are noticeably thicker where the Hydro-Shield technology is located; however, this thickness was not uncomfortable or bothersome, nor did it make me feel like I had pads under my arms. The Thompson Tee is surprisingly comfortable to wear, especially underneath multiple layers. Finally, a shirt exists that allows me to do what I do best, sweat, and not feel disgusting afterward and like I need to change my shirt and immediately wash it.
I have suggested to Mr. Thompson that a women’s line would be great, and it’s currently being developed. I think a women’s version of the tee that would work underneath a suit jacket and looks professional at the same time would be great. I also suggested an underwear line for both men and women, too. Those with excessive sweating need all the help they can get, and products like these would go a long way in helping us to feel comfortable when we sweat. They’d be great for exercise, too. Everyone sweats when they exercise, but we could use a bit of extra moisture wicking and vapor release.
I highly encourage you to investigate this product for yourself. Mr. Thompson was easily reachable, very professional, concerned that I would be satisfied, and very prompt in all of his communications with me. He gets it, and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to test a product that made me feel like someone else out there was looking out for me and my “cool factor.”
Check out The Thompson Tee website, view the products and descriptions, and order 1 or 2 or 10. They are affordable and worth the money. I have not been paid to do this product review. I am simply sharing the love with you. There are products out there that work and offer hope to those with hyperhidrosis. This is one of them. Please tell Mr. Thompson that Maria from My Life as a Puddle sent you. 🙂
