Ask Knix: What Do I Do About...Sweat?

TEAM KNIX / JUN 06, 2017

Hi Knix,

Kinda embarrassing question here, but I’m wondering how well your underwear really stands up to sweat. I often hit the gym before work or on my lunch hour, and I need underwear that I can exercise in without worrying about. It’d be great if it worked equally well under leggings as under a tight work skirt! Can you help?





Like you, we’re big fans of multitasking intimates. We wanted all our underwear to be equally as effective for a marathon as it is for your big meeting. That’s why we spent months designing truly seamless styles that would vanish under your most form-fitting clothing. Our unique bonded construction allows for a perfect seamless fit: snug without being tight, stretchy without sagging. 

As for sweat? Both our Everyday and Athletic lines have sweat-wicking properties. We worked with designers to create a new fabric that absorbs moisture and destroys odors. We’re especially proud of the carbon-cotton gusset (a fancy word for crotch area). Carbon is naturally anti-microbial, so we can eliminate and destroy odors without any added chemicals or artificial fragrances. Even a hot yoga flow is no match for these guys. Plus, we’ve made them quick-dry, so you’ll be sweat-free by the time you’re ready to get back to your desk. Go for our Athletic line if you’re looking for the extra stretch factor — we love how they stay in place without pinching or chafing.

Sweat on!

Happy Knixing,
