FUNCTIONAL UNDERWEAR: HIGH-TECH ON THE SKIN
Functional underwear is a real asset in sportswear. It takes the body's natural cooling mechanism into account and transports sweat away from the body. To ensure this, you need to combine functional underwear with breathable outerwear. You choose your underwear depending on the temperature and whether you are doing sports outdoors or indoors. At low temperatures, you can wear the functional underwear in several layers on top of each other according to the onion layer principle. This ensures better insulation. When it gets warmer, you can quickly separate from one layer.
The most important layer is the one that is directly next to the skin. Functional underwear is designed to take into account the different areas of the body. In order to specifically cool sweat centres such as the armpits, chest area or back and keep sensitive zones such as the kidneys warm, underwear features different material thicknesses that are adapted to the body zones.
FIND YOUR FUNCTIONAL UNDERWEAR IN THE RIGHT MATERIAL
High demands are placed on the material of functional underwear. It must feel comfortable on the skin, transport moisture well and dry quickly. Functional underwear should be hard-wearing and prevent the formation of unpleasant odours. Modern synthetic fibres such as polypropylene, polyester or polyamide are easy to care for. Blended fabrics made of synthetic fibres with natural materials such as silk or bamboo fibres have a cooling effect. Silver threads woven into the fabric can also prevent body odour. The material of functional underwear is sometimes antibacterial or has UV protection. Merino functional underwear ensures excellent comfort during outdoor activities. Merino functional underwear is thin, soft and highly functional.
