An undershirt is an article of underwear worn underneath a dress shirt. It can serve several purposes: to protect the shirt from body sweat and odors, to add an extra layer of warmth, to protect the body from stiff or otherwise uncomfortable fabric (such as a mandatory work uniform), or to make a dress shirt less transparent. Undershirts can also be worn under other garments, such as under a sweater.
The term undershirt most commonly refers to types of this garment worn by males. They typically have a low, round neckline and have either short sleeves or are sleeveless.
The undershirt evolved into related garments like the singlet, the T-shirt, the sports jersey, the female chemise, or the female tank top. These are sometimes also worn as an only or outer layer, in which case they are no longer items of underwear.
