Big boobs are great until the warm weather, when they start to get really annoying. Having big boobs makes it hard to wear the cute crop tops, bralettes, and loose and flowy tanks girls with smaller boobs wear with ease. Having large breasts makes bathing suit shopping a real-life nightmare. And the worst problem of all? Big boobs equal lots of sweat.
It’s not the most fun topic to discuss, but let’s be real: every girl with large breasts knows the struggle of dealing with underboob sweat on a hot summer day. Besides the fact that it feels super uncomfortable and awkward, you also have to worry about your underboob sweat stains showing through your shirt and announcing your temperature to everyone around you. It’s like, yeah, everyone sweats, but do you really want to be a walking advertisement for that?
Luckily, there are some solutions to your sweaty boob problems. You may have to spend a little extra money or experiment to find what works for you, but I think that at least one of the below options will keep your bra dry this summer. Here are 10 tips on how to deal with and get rid of boob sweat:
Try Using Spray Deodorant
Spray deodorant is great for hard-to-reach spots, like under your boobs. I love this Dove one because it doesn't leave behind a residue - you don't want deodorant residue staining your nice bras or your shirts! Plus, this one smells great.

Use Special Underwear Powder
If you don't want to use deodorant, try using a powder of some sort. Lush makes a powder that is specifically made for being used in your most intimate areas, like your boobs. It's made with coconut butter to moisturize, and absorbent powder to keep you fresh - and it smells amazing.
Use Baby Powder
Or maybe this is an emergency situation and you need to fix your underboob sweat ASAP. In that case, I'm sure you have baby powder somewhere in your house. Baby powder makes an excellent substitute for deodorant. It soaks up your sweat and leaves you feeling and smelling more fresh.
Stuff Your Bra
I know that stuffing your bra sounds like even more sweat - hear me out! Some girls swear by putting tissue or absorbent pads in their bra to soak up the sweat and keep it from getting on their skin or seeping through their shirts. You can stick some tissues under your boobs, but that could be uncomfortable - plus, they can move around, and you have to switch them out regularly. Another option is to stick panty liners down there. We also live in a world where Bra Liners are a thing you can order online.
Find Special Boob Deodorant
A lot of women are hesitant about putting deodorant under their boobs because many people believe that deodorant has harmful chemicals in it. If you feel that way, try deodorant made JUST for boobs. It's called Boobalicious, and it's all-natural and organic. The one pictured is coconut scented, but there are lots of options. There is even one that has body glitter in it!
Avoid Wearing Padded Bras
Padded bras are obviously full of padding. All of that fabric by your boobs can make you even sweatier, and it can also soak up all that sweat and stain your favorite bras. On really hot days, I would avoid wearing padded bras altogether and instead stick to something unlined.

Use Argan Oil
While this may sound unconventional, argan oil has been known to be a bit of a miracle solution. Lindsey at Bustle swears by putting argan oil on her boobs to stop the sweat. She claims that a few drops on her boobs, and they no longer smell sweaty, get irritated, or leave marks. Hey - it's worth a shot.
Experiment With Fresh Breasts
Fresh Breasts by Fresh Body is another product made especially with your boobs in mind. Well, not your boobs in particular, but you know what I mean. It's a lotion that dries quickly into a silky powder. The ingredients are all-natural and it's unscented. It prevents wetness from sweat and it has anti-chafing powers. It's hypoallergenic, talc-free, paraben-free, and aluminum. It's also not tested on animals! And it's inexpensive. I mean, it sounds amazing, so I would go for it!
Wear Dark Colors On Especially Hot Days
Sometimes it's so hot out that you know that even super, super strength deodorant won't get rid of your sweat troubles. On those days, stick to darker colors or bold patterns. If your sweat stains do start to show through, you won't be able to see them as easily on a black shirt or on a crazy pattern.

Use Goldbond Powder
Goldbond works like baby powder would - it soaks up the sweat, leaves you dry and fresh, and helps with chafing. Some girls swear by this stuff over baby powder, and it's always nice to know that you have options.
