Two unavoidable things in life: summer and boobs. If you're needing to swap out your standard bra for one that doesn't turn your boobs into a hot mess (though that's not necessarily a bad thing), these are, hands down, the 7 most breathable bras for summer. Some are light, some are supportive, but all of them are 100 percent chic and will leave you feeling a little less sweaty!
Before you hit the mall (or, let's be real, Internet) for a summer bra, make sure you know what size you are. There is nothing more uncomfortable than wearing the wrong bra, but any lingerie store should help size you for free. I promise it's not as awkward as it sounds if you've never done it! And, FYI, there's zero reason to be self-conscious if one boob is bigger than the other. It's totally normal, but if you're really uncomfortable, you can always play around with some cleavage contouring.
Next time the sun is out and fierce, don't shy away from wearing that favorite summer dress or crop top for fear of obvious sweat stains. Just get one of these breathable summer bras and be the radiant, fabulously-boobed lady you are.
For ultimate lightness, nothing beats cotton. This simple, well-designed one from Aerie is definitely a winner!
This super supportive bra made from nylon and spandex is kind of like wearing a really comfortable swimsuit.
If you're looking for a lightweight statement bra to pair with a loose cut tank, this bra from Free People is the one. It comes in a ton of delicious pastel shades perfect for pairing.
This super-wicking mesh and polyester bra from Patagonia is perfect for workouts, but works just as well under dresses or t-shirts.
OK, admittedly, not a ton of support, but this bra is so, so, so lightweight and elegant! Personally, I'd just rock it by itself under overalls for a summer concert in Central Park.
The perfect bra for tatas that need more support, this elegant cotton one from Her Room has extra comfortable straps and is made of super breathable cotton.
I basically live in this Victoria's Secret sports bra all summer long. It's got wicking technology, tons of support, and provides enough coverage for me to feel comfortable running in it without a t-shirt. I once even paired it with a high-waisted skirt and went clubbing. Shh.
