How to make a choice?
Today, such a piece of clothing has become quite popular, so that the number of its producers has increased significantly. And how to choose the best thermal underwear and be satisfied? We highlight a few important points:
- Firstly, there are male and female thermal underwear. When tailoring, features of figures of people of different sex are taken into account. For example, female models suggest an expansion in the upper part for the chest. In addition, beautiful ladies will feel comfortable, as the clothes will fit and for others will go unnoticed. In addition, you can buy such things for children.
- Secondly, it is necessary to determine the objectives of the acquisition and destination. So, there are three types. Heat-saving laundry keeps heat and does not allow to freeze.It will be the best option for those who are often in the winter season in open space, but with little or no movement at all. Moisture-removing underwear is very useful for athletes or just moving people. This option will not sweat, and in fact if a person sweats, and then, for example, gets into a cold and windy place, then he is more likely to catch a cold. Hybrid underwear consists of two layers: heat-saving and moisture-removing. It will have the way, if a person has to move quickly from time to time, that is, it is not constant.
- The size also needs to be known for sure. The underwear warm underwear must necessarily be contiguous with the body (this is the whole point), but at the same time it should not hamper movements, otherwise it will simply be uncomfortable. Many manufacturers have a convenient dimensional grid, so that determine the desired size is not difficult.
- If you are allergic, then by all means consider this. Some manufacturers have taken care of allergies and offer special hypo-allergenic underwear that does not cause irritation and does not affect the skin.
- Material. If the choice is between synthetics and natural fabrics, then it is worth remembering about some of the features.Yes, natural materials (cotton and wool) are completely safe and harmless, but not very practical. For example, cotton can get wet, and if you sweat excessively, this fabric will acquire a characteristic odor. Wool, on the other hand, can cause allergies or discomfort when touching the skin. But synthetic materials are very practical. Such clothes can be worn for several days in a row, while doing sports. It will not get wet or smell unpleasant. If you are looking for a middle ground, then buy underwear made from natural materials with the addition of synthetic.
- Stitches. If they are convex, rigid and voluminous, they will rub and cause discomfort. So look at the seams and make sure they are flat and located on the front side.
- Model. There are several models. For example, you can buy a combined overall. This is an excellent option for athletes who do not have the ability to constantly adjust the underwear so that it does not bully. If you do not want to constantly wear overalls, or you feel uncomfortable in it, then choose a separate suit: shirt and tights. And you can buy a T-shirt or even a T-shirt and shorts.This option is preferable for women accustomed to wear skirts and tight-fitting sweaters.
- Fitting. If you have the opportunity to measure the kit, then definitely do it! The only way you can understand is whether you will be comfortable in your underwear while walking and moving. You can even put on outerwear, which will allow you to know whether the clothes will stand out and spoil the look.
