This Idea assumes most guys like the way most gals look when
wearing wet T-shirts against the skin.
The problem is that even if warm water is used to wet the T-shirt,
the phenomenon of "evaporative cooling" will soon make the T-
shirt uncomfortable enough that a gal would prefer to be wearing
Therefore, if guys want to experience the most benefit from gals
wearing wet T-shirts, it is necessary for guys to solve that
As a first-approximation solution, consider some clear plastic food
wrap, which can reliably stick to itself after wrapping something.
Get a wide-enough sheet of this plastic, and a single wrap around
a gal, starting and ending at the gal's back, would enclose the wet
T-shirt and greatly reduce the amount of evaporative cooling,
while not obstructing the view.
As a second approximation, consider a special hat that the gal
could wear. It has a fuel supply and a burner and a modest water
tank (see link for a rather-more-significant mass that gals have
been known to put on their heads). The heated water flows to a
mist-sprayer that is aimed at the T-shirt, specifically to keep it
both warm and wet.
As a third approximation, consider a portable microwave
generator and a battery pack. We still need a water tank and a
mist-sprayer, but now the microwaves keep the wet T-shirt warm.
Well, that's enough for this Idea.
Weights on gals' heads

For anyone interested, here's something I thought of when NOT thinking about wet T-shirts (and said so) [Vernon, Aug 30 2015]

length and starts with the same letter as "guy".
||What Vernon Said. ( + )( + )
||Peanut oil wet t shirt would not evaporate, but might attract flies.
||I'm not touching this one. But as to [pashute]'s link, the
reason the common clothing style of Muslim women is seen
as oppressive is that it's mandated by law in some countries.
Dressing like a nun? Not oppressive. Being forced to dress
like a nun? Oppressive.
