  • maxi dress that’ll keep you cool and stylish this summer — even if you plan to spend all summer indoors, taking advantage of the AC.
  • A pack of underarm shields that’ll soak up sweat before it can stain your shirt. They’re also designed to stop odors so you don’t look *or* smell like…

1. A set of anti-chafing thigh bands because hell hath no fury like a pair of angry, sweaty, chafing thighs.

Promising review: “Ladies, we can finally toss the deodorant…these things work! I was hella skeptical because my thighs are resistant to any sort of chub rub defense. I wore them while walking at least five hours at a music festival and they stayed put without me ever needing to adjust them! I couldn’t believe it! My delicate inner thigh skin was preserved; not a chub-rub in sight and they’re so feminine and romantic-looking that I didn’t even care if someone caught a peek at that beautiful lace. Way sexier than my usual biker shorts. Love that I can wear dresses all day now without worrying about my thighs overheating.” —OceanHips

Get them from Amazon for $18.95+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 17 styles).

2. An anti-chafing balm for swiping anywhere your clothes rub. It creates a moisture-repelling layer on your skin (without ever feeling greasy!) that protects against blisters, irritation, and chafing when your running, hiking, biking, or just trying to exist in the world as a sweaty person.

Promising review: “I am a lifelong curvy lady whose thighs have rubbed together since the beginning of time, probably, so I’m no stranger to chafing. This morning I applied the balm to my inner thighs under a sundress and spent a day walking around in the heat and sunshine; it was hot, and I was sweating, but miraculously, my thighs felt fine! I applied the balm at around 11:30 a.m. and as I write my review it’s almost 7:30 p.m. but my legs are going strong. Other parts of me have definitely reacted to being out and about but not my thighs — without this stuff, they would be pink and tender, but they feel soft and happy. I am absolutely impressed. Long story short, this stuff absolutely worked for me; I plan to buy a larger size when this smaller one runs out. Don’t be a doubter like I was!” —Gina

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

3. A talc-free sweat-absorbing powder to calm and cool any areas where sweat pools. It’s long lasting and made with calamine, an ingredient that can help reduce irritation and dry sweat.

Promising review: “I can never review this highly enough. I’ve gotten at least five people hooked on it this year. This makes a HUGE difference with chub rub, doesn’t get rid of sweat between your thighs but completely reduces friction. Great under your totties in the summer and basically anywhere that skin rubs. Get it.” —Elizabeth

Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

4. bra liners so you, a sweaty person, can make the 30-second walk to your mailbox without the dreaded under-boob sweat.

Promising review: “I am a sweat-er and therefore it’s very uncomfortable to sweat under your bra and then be wet. I am so happy with this product. No more being wet and having embarrassing sweat marks.” —Lola

Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in three colors).

5. A pack of underarm shields that’ll soak up sweat before it can stain your shirt. They’re also designed to stop odors so you don’t look *or* smell like you just sweat through your shirt.

Promising review: “I love these. I have a few cute summer dresses with sleeves — eeek! The first time I tried the shields it was 104 degrees at an outdoor event, and I was sweating bullets! The shields worked BEAUTIFULLY. Not a sweat stain in sight.” —Cosmic Girl

Get a pack of 24 from Amazon for $13.99.

6. A clinical-strength antiperspirant if nothing else has helped tackle your excessive sweating. This roll-on contains 12% aluminum chloride, a compound that blocks sweat, so you can enjoy up to 72 hours of protection from endless sweat.

Promising review: “Just got inside from 80-degree weather. I CANNOT believe I have no sweat marks. To be dramatic, this is life-changing. To be modest, this is life changing. Haha. I was always so embarrassed going anywhere! No matter the weather I was always dripping sweat from under my arms. I was always so self-conscious, leaving parties early, known as the sweater! No more! I’m seriously so excited about this.” —Liz

Get it from Amazon for $5.67+ (available in solid and rollerball formats).

7. Or Myro, an eco-friendly deodorant subscription because being kind to Mother Earth and having fresh-smelling pits are not mutually exclusive. You pick the scent and case you like and Myro will send you deodorant refills every few months so you can stop buying wasteful deodorant tubes.

My coworker Marquaysa Battle swears by this deodorant. Here’s what she had to say:

“Tbh, I wasn’t looking for environmentally friendly deodorant although I swear I love Mother Earth. My go-to fragrance-free deodorant was discontinued so I just desperately needed one that wouldn’t irritate my sensitive underarm skin and would keep me smelling fresh. All the other natural deodorants I tried DEFINITELY DID NOT KEEP ME FRESH. I had to re-up several times throughout the day just to avoid a sweaty smell, which wasn’t my norm and made me feel self-conscious. Finally, I stumbled upon the Myro deodorant and figured I’d just try it since I tried everything else (Native, Tom’s, Almay, you name it). I was skeptical because it smelled so good and my severely sensitive skin typically doesn’t play nice with scents. I guess since the product is truly natural, that’s why it didn’t irritate me. Fair warning: I peeped that the deodorant has low ratings on like two sites but it appears that the Myro brand listened to the people, as its website notes that it’s upgraded the formula. I’ve been using it for about three weeks. I apply it once daily and don’t have to break my schedule to re-up, haven’t had any itchy patches develop under my arms, and FINALLY get to enjoy a great scented product again, which I haven’t been able to do in years. BTW, the scent I have is the Chill Wave which smells like cucumber, jasmine, and spearmint 👃🏾❤️.”

Get a starter kit (one deodorant pod and one refillable case) for $10 and free shipping.

8. A pack of aluminum-free deodorant wipes for freshening up on the go. They’re made to absorb orders so no one else has to know that you forget to apply deodorant this morning.

The wipes

Promising review: “I have always suffered from bad odor on my underarms since I have very delicate skin, so I can’t use strongly scented deodorants. I’m always trying out cream deodorant or gels, but it either irritates my skin or it doesn’t stop my bad odor. THIS IS THE BEST INVENTION EVER. I LOVE IT! I can’t believe that something finally works! My armpits don’t smell bad. I can finally move my arms freely. The scent is wonderful; I love the smell and it’s not harsh on my skin. Even after a long day, my underarms are still smelling like coconut.” —Patricia

Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three scents and multipacks).

9. And if you need something heavier duty, a pack of clinical-strength antiperspirant wipes to protect you from excessive sweating for up to seven — SEVEN! — days.

Promising review: “Cannot recommend enough!!! If you suffer from excessive sweat like I do, this stuff is a lifesaver!! I’ve always had a problem with underarm sweat and I’ve tried every kind of antiperspirant available and nothing worked. I finally saw this on BuzzFeed and decided to give it a try. I can’t believe I’ve suffered this long without this product. I showered at night, dabbed the wipe on, took another shower in the morning and it’s been almost three days now and almost no sweat! It did itch a little but nothing unbearable and I can deal with that for the pay off!!!” —Kathy

Get 10 wipes from Amazon for $19.99.

10. A tube of antiperspirant hand cream so you can find relief from hyperhidrosis (the clinical name for excessive sweating).

The cream

Promising review: “I used this product on my 10-year-old son. He sweats A LOT on his hands. He would tell me that he was embarrassed at school and he had problems making friends. My son told me he had never shook a hand outside of mine ever before in his life….. it broke me. As a father, I knew I had to fix this. I set an appointment up with his doctor and got nowhere. The doctor said it’s normal and should go away in the coming years. I asked about surgery and they said it would be around $10,000, so I started saving. Couple weeks went by and I came across this product I asked my son if he was OK with trying it and he desperately said yes. We put it on and his hands are completely dry now. When it worked, he started practicing shaking hands and high fives with his brother. It’s been two weeks now and it is working AMAZING.” —HECTOR LORENZO

Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

11. An aluminum-free deodorant that’ll help save the day when “down there” doesn’t smell so fresh. Obviously you should talk to your doc if your private parts smell funky, but this is an option if they’ve cleared you of any health conditions and you’re still put off by any odors.

Promising review: “I was very skeptical, but since I’m on a lifelong quest to smell better I tried it. It’s important to know, I have pretty severe hyperhidrosis and just sweat harder than anyone I’ve ever met in general, so naturally I get stinky very, very easily. For me, I had to use more than the recommended ‘a little goes a long way.’ Basically I slather m
