  • Under Armour shirt hurts underarms?

    Does anyone else have this problem? I've been wearing these shirts forever but they really dig into my arm pits. It hurts so bad by the end of the shift. Can you cut the sleeves off them without messing up the shirt?

    I like the compression shirts but don't want to try another brand only to have the same problem. Anyone tried the 5.11 muscle mapping? I'm really only concerned as to whether other brands did into your arm pits like UA does.

    UA Heatgear? If so, try one of their looser fit shirts maybe.

      I don't know about cutting the sleeves. I wear the sleeveless version to avoid that very problem since they're tight. I wanted to try those muscle mapping shirts, but figured they would dig into my armpits so I haven't bought them.

        Yes, I have the same problem too. I thought I was the only one. I've seen people who have cut Under Armour shirts and they stay together. No fraying or anything of that nature, so I guess you could cut it if you wanted.

            I have that problem too.

            Try the sleeveless. I'll be switching to long sleeved UA Coldgear in the next couple weeks. Probably not necessary in ATL.

                  I recently bought my first UA heatgear L/S shirt. I wore it one tour and love it. It breaths, doesn't stick to my body and feels good. Thumbs up!

                    One thing I noticed about the LS cold gear is that it does wear at the armpits like the heat gear. My cold gear is two sizes larger so that is probably the reason. Narco, you could buy a couple sizes larger of the heat gear and since it stretchy it'll feel about the same but with loser seems at the pits.

                        Interesting, thanks.
                        With that in mind, I'll buy just one to try out for now.

                        I will say, since I started wearing UA, it just doesn't feel right when I go back to cotton. I can count on one hand the number of times I've worn a cotton t-shirt in the last six months.

                            Sorry, I left out "not" in my other post. The LS CG does not rub my armpits. Sorry for the confusion

                              I use the 5-11 compression shirts. They bugged me for a bit but either i'm used to it or they stopped hurting after a couple of washes.
