What Makes An Effective Dress Shield?
The most effective dress shields are constructed with a waterproof soft vinyl-urethane or Fabrapel® cotton barrier which will prevent any fluid from going through to your outer clothing. Additionally it should make no noise and create no heat. Finally, it should be machine washable and long lasting. Dress shields should also match the color of the clothing intended for use in order to be discreet and undetectable.
Dress shields are excellent protection for the underarms for both women and men. They come in many styles and shapes to fit the fashion needs of the wearer. We produce dress shields styles which include; snap onto bra straps, sew-in, pinned in, or taped in styles. The snap on shield is particularly convenient for female users.
A regular sized dress shield is approximately 5 ½ inches by 5 ½ inches and it is intended for regular sleeve lengths. A short sleeve dress shield is approximately 5 ½ inches by 3 1/2 inches so that the shorter side comes down the arm to a lesser extent to conform to short sleeve blouses and shirts. Additionally, enlarged dress shields are also available which provide more coverage these measure between 6 inches x 7 1/2 inches to 6 x 9 inches.
All the above reusable dress shields can be hand or machine washed. We recommend a non-detergent soap or Woolite® be used. This will ensure a long life for the shields. Disposable dress shields also come in a variety of sizes and colors. These are constructed with a non woven absorbent top layer made out of cellulose wood pulp fibers attached to a waterproof back layer. These products have adhesive tapes covering this waterproof back layer which when the release paper is removed will attach temporarily to the wearers clothing.
We make a wide variety of disposable dress shields including categories for value pack styles, styles exclusively for women and ultra absorbent styles. The styles exclusively for women are contoured and shaped thus designed to fit the smaller armpit of a woman. The Ultra product is larger and more absorbent and thus is intended for users who have heavier sweating issues often times called hyperhidrosis People with excessive sweating issues also called hyperhidrosis often order dress shields with the maximum protection layer of terry cotton as this will provide even more absorbency.
