Lip Sweater

What does lip sweater mean?


A lip sweater is a slang term for the facial hair above a male's upper lip. It may also appear on a female that has darker body hair or just doesn't care about grooming.

The lip sweater is especially helpful for protecting a person's lip from the wind and keeping it warm during the winter months. It is integral to the Movember campaign.
