Make uncomfortable boob sweat a thing of the past with these breathable, cooling bras.
Like thigh rub, boob sweat is one of those frustrating warm-weather annoyances many women deal with. Not only are sweat stains a huge pain, but moisture sitting on your skin (especially in this super-sensitive area) can cause chafing to occur. But the good news is that not all bras are so stifling—some are actually designed to help keep you cool, thanks to genius features such as mesh panels, large open backs, and moisture-wicking fabric. Whether you're going through menopause, have a medical condition, naturally run hot, or are simply trying to get through the summer sweat-free, these cooling bras will keep you supported and comfortable throughout the day.

Hanes Women’s X-Temp Wirefree Bra
Boody Body Ecowear Padded Shaper Bra
Keep things cool with this wireless bra made from bamboo fabric. A sustainable alternative to cotton, it’s not only unbelievably soft, but breathable and sweat-wicking, too. Even better? It boasts antibacterial properties, so it won’t smell if you start to sweat.
Warner’s Play It Cool Wire-Free Lift Contour Bra
Aerie Hannah Demi Coverage Lightly Lined Bra
If you have a smaller cup size and don't need a ton of support, demi-coverage bras are a good choice; the lower cut makes it easier for skin to breathe. This one from Maidenform is a popular pick on Amazon, with more than 1,000 perfect reviews. Available in 13 colorways, it’s made with extra soft fabric and has thin straps and an open back for added breathability.
Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette
Free of uncomfortable wires and excessive padding, this lightly lined bralette is made with a breathable cotton blend that’s so lightweight, you might just forget you’re even wearing it. Also good: a deep plunge that helps encourage airflow in between cleavage.
Glamorise Magic Lift Wire-Free Cotton Support Bra
With its Magic Lift band and wide straps, this bra is ideal for those who need a little extra support. (Even better: It's available in a wide range of cup sizes, from B to J.) And thanks to a soft cotton blend fabric and well-placed lace cutouts, you'll stay cool and dry while also feeling supported.
Lively the Mesh Trim Bralette
Lace is great, but nothing encourages airflow quite like a full cutout or mesh—and this lounge-worthy pick has both. Its plunged design features a tiny keyhole between the breasts that improves airflow, while the side paneling and lining is made from the brand’s signature breathable mesh. The final look offers full coverage that’s perfect for wear in steamy temps.
Everlane Tank Bra
If you crave minimal fabric between your girls and, well, the air, you can't do much better than Everlane's Tank Bra. It's double lined for support, but free of any padding that could cause you to overheat. The low scoop neck keeps things breezy, and the fabric is 92% supima cotton with a hint of elastane for stretch.
Cuup The Balconette
Size-inclusive underwear brand Cuups is slowly taking over Instagram with its stylish bras made from lightweight, flexible mesh. Although the sheer fabric may seem like an aesthetic choice, it’s actually a key part of making a supportive bra that’s also comfortable. That’s because it allows the skin to breathe and doesn’t hold onto sweat like traditional shapewear fabrics.
