Best Underwear For Sweating - No Chafing & Quick Dry Panties

The ins and outs of how to stay dry and comfortable all year long—plus tips and tricks to never chafe again!

Summer may be the hottest season, but all bodies sweat year-round—especially if working out is in your teen's weekly routine. And let's be real for a minute, sweating "down there" can feel like the worst of the worst.

We've all experienced it walking down the street in the summer heat, while playing sports or maybe it's just a stronger-than-normal discharge day. We want to help your child be comfortable, and moisture wicking underwear will help in all those sweaty situations—especially in the heat of the summer.

It's time we wear underwear that works for our bodies. By choosing the right breathable underwear for your teen, you'll help them feel fresh and avoid sweat rashes, chafing, night sweats and more. Bonus points for underwear that are breathable, help with odor control and are extremely lightweight.

Prevent sweat rashes with the right pair of moisture wicking underwear

Sweat rashes are when the skin’s sweat glands are blocked and the sweat produced cannot get to the surface of the skin to evaporate. This usually happens when you aren't wearing the right clothes and/or underwear, most typically when you're being more active. You can also blame the humidity and heat for this! Don't get us wrong—we stan the summer, but sweat rashes are REAL during this hot hot hot season.

Normal, non-moisture wicking underwear stay damp longer, making a rash appear and worsen throughout wear, and you don't want that for your teen. These red bumps on the skin can be super itchy, uncomfortable and even embarrassing, but it's extremely common—and preventable. So, try not to sweat it. 😉


The number one way to prevent sweat rashes is by changing undies frequently when they get damp, especially if the underwear of choice is a cotton pair purchased from a pack of six. However, this requires your child to carry an extra pair with them daily, as well as double washing.

Another important way to prevent chafing and rashes from forming is with sweat wicking underwear, and there -- we've got them covered. These incredibly comfortable sweat absorbing underwear are perfect for those extra sweaty days.

Moisture wicking underwear offer a breathable mesh design, allowing sensitive skin to feel fresh and comfortable on the daily, whether your tween or teen is working out or chilling at home.

Get your fitness on and prevent chafing

Fact: Chafing is one of the worst feelings in the world.

Has your teen ever gone for a walk and started to itch and burn in between their thighs? That would be what is called thigh chafe. While awful, there is a way to prevent it. Whether running laps at soccer practice or hiking in the summer heat, moisture wicking underwear might be for them.

While there are a few types and styles available, we think one of the best underwear to prevent sweating and chafing is our Leakproof Boyshort Underwear. These underwear are made for the sporty, gym-lover in all of us, cover your butt and don't ride up. Like all Kt panties, they're lightweight and comfortable, so you won't even feel them.

Searching for a whole new workout 'fit for your child? We've got active leggings and shorts made with breathable fabrics that'll help them reach your personal records while looking good. Pair these with their new undies, and there will be no stopping them.

Night sweats? No big deal.

Night sweats are a natural part of life. Some people get them nightly while others experience them when they're overwhelmed or are experiencing nightmares. Either way, it happens to the best of us. There's no reason your child should feel embarrassed. In any case, waking up feeling damp and clammy is not the best way to start your day.

There are many ways your teen can change up what they're doing for a more comfortable (and less sweaty) sleep. We suggest switching their bed linen and PJs from synthetic fabrics to natural fibers like cotton or linen, which are breathable and help prevent sweating. 


Most importantly, they should wear a pair of comfortable underwear—and one that's moisture wicking and comfortable for nightly wear.

Finals week got them stressing? Kt Sleepover Shorts are here to save the day. These moisture wicking undies are made to soak up sweat and leave the wearer feeling dry and refreshed as the sun rises. Added bonus, these undies are SUPER comfy and a bit more absorbent than our other styles.

Did you know? Kt underwear are not just for sweat wicking and everyday wear—they're for period health, too! No tampon necessary.🙅 Shop period underwear for teens.

If your teen is experiencing night sweats, the most important thing they should do is keep hydrated. Their body loses a lot of water when it sweats. Leaving a glass water on their bedside table for midnight thirst or for first thing in the morning is important. 

Full coverage underwear for every body, without the butt sweat

Sometimes all you want in a pair of underwear is the right amount of coverage. Seamless thongs and bikini briefs have their moments, but everyone needs a good pair of full coverage underwear that keeps the booty dry in even the hottest of hot weather.

Butt sweat is something that can be embarrassing, but, like many things, easily avoidable. If your kid is a sweaty person (no shame in the game), they may feel like they have to be super conscious of what they wear, especially on hot summer days.

Moisture wicking boy short or high-rise underwear are great options for someone who wants a little more coverage but might experience butt sweat. They're made from lightweight fabric and a breathable design that will help your teen to feel confident, even in hot weather. In general, choosing fabrics that don't lock in moisture is always a good idea.

Hopefully, after reading this you know your child is not alone in this sweaty world! It's totally natural and healthy to sweat—even in the nether regions no one really talks about.
