SWEATTECH™ Vs. THERMATECH™ : What's the Difference?

What Waist has been pioneering several shapewear technologies since its conception. With our expertise in radiology, we've incorporated different features in supposedly simple shapewear, making it unique and life-changing for its users. 


In this blog, we'll talk about two of the techs we have for waist trainers and some of our shapewear. We'll talk about what they can do, their differences, and products where you can find them. 


SweatTech ™ equipped shapewear is woven with latex layers so your body can produce excess sweat and release more toxins, while the curved metal rods are for back support.

This tech solves... 

Being sticky with sweat: As we know, trainers always compress certain body parts for slimming. This causes the garment to be sticky because of sweating. However, SweatTech ™ is sweat-wicking because of its latex composition, making you comfortable throughout the day. 

Back support: Also, if you're in dire need of back support, this tech provides that without feeling too rigid and maintains the flexibility you need to move even in workouts.

Sample garments equipped with SweatTech™: 


Thermatech ™ is made with a unique, metallic material designed to make you sweat more and increase the loss of fat cells. It's also antimicrobial, soft on the skin, and lets your body feel naturally cool, even with extra compression.

This tech solves... 

No funkiness or that sticky, sweaty feeling: Almost similar to SweatTech ™, the natural cooling and sweat-wicking capabilities of Thermatech ™ allows you to look and smell fresh even during intense workouts. 

Dirt and germs: If you missed reading this part, Thermatech ™ is antimicrobial, slows down the spread, and even kills the spread of bad germs. Hey, of course, it'll not forever be clean, but at least you have peace of mind you're not that dirty at the end of a busy day!

So... what are the differences between SWEATTECH™ and THERMATECH™


SweatTech ™ has better support. The curved metal rods provide better back reinforcement which is non-existent on our Thermatech ™ products. 


Thermatech ™ has better sweat control. The unique, metallic material makes you sweat more but is also more antimicrobial at the same time.
