While I’m sure most of you have probably already heard about this amazing Lifewear product from Uniqlo, the brand that sells some of our favourite basic pieces and shapes, I’m only now beginning to understand the technology and thought that has gone into creating its most amazing innerwear, AIRism. If you want to know about the tech that’s revolutionised one kind of innerwear that’s suitable for different climates all over the world, then you’ll want to keep reading.


AIRism is a range of innerwear with fabric fibres that was technologically developed in Japan to give its wearer the perfect fit and comfort for all seasons, anywhere in the world. Its functions range from keeping you free of perspiration to minimising the smell of body odour caused from sweating, by neutralising and absorbing unwanted scents and sweat for a fresh feel all day. It even helps to reduce the feeling of stickiness!

What gives this range of innerwear its special powers is that it’s designed with ‘Cupro’, a rare type of fibre that comes from cotton linters (fine, silky fibers which adhere to the seeds of the cotton plant after ginning) and is also known as the “breathable fibre” that has amazing absorption and desorption capabilities.

To get straight to the point, I’ve broken down all the benefits of AIRism’s tech into an easy-to-read chart! I also picked out my favourite pieces that aren’t just practical, but also versatile and come in a huge array of pastels and neutral colours, as well as subtle prints that will match up with anything.


Tailored to stretch and fit the wearer snugly (not tightly – there is a huge difference!), the fabric also releases moisture and traps perspiration in the fibres of other fabrics. So according to Uniqlo, on a hot day you might actually want to put AIRism on, instead of taking your clothes off!
