How to Prevent Boob Sweat. There’s a headline I wasn’t sure I’d write. Swoobs. The swits. Boob sweat. Sweaty boobs. Yeah, I said it because it happens to the best of us!
Everybody sweats. Maybe even in places we don’t want to admit.
It’s hard enough to try and dress stylish when the weather feels more like an oven than earth. Now we have to worry about being fresh, clean and sexy, too.
If you’ve ever swiped deodorant under your breasts, stuffed your bra with tissues or made a total mess with baby powder because you have sweaty boobs, you know what I’m talking about. Because, let’s face it, boob sweat happens. And it does not go with your outfit.
Maybe you live someplace with sweltering heat like Arizona or maybe you’re traveling someplace tropical this summer. Whatever the case, toss the tissues and baby powder away; these breast sweat products will help prevent boob sweat so you can step out confident, in style and sweat-free.
How to Prevent Boob Sweat
What Causes Boob Sweat?
If you have large breasts, you’ve likely experienced boob sweat before. But size isn’t the only factor. Sometimes, it’s just hot!
Whether you’re having an intense workout or visiting someplace exceptionally humid, your skin can rub, sweat and get irritated.
Aside from the embarrassment factor, under breast sweat can be quite uncomfortable.
Luckily for us, there are under breast sweat pads and new potions and powders to help keep breast sweat at bay.
Bra Liners and Under Breast Pads for Boob Sweat
It absorbs sweat preventing rash, skin irritation, unsightly boob sweat and saving your bras, of course.
They’re really easy to stick on, too; just peel the strip and fold the excess portion underneath your bra.
PRO TIP: I recommend lining it up first to see how you’re going to stick it in before removing the sticky back panel.
I tried out CupCare a few times and must say, it did the job! It was such a great way to not have a gross sweaty bra and at the end of the day, you simply remove the liner and throw it away.
No sweaty, gross bras and it fits most bra sizes (A-F). This works best with a traditional underwire bra. Get CupCare here.

Powders and Potions to Prevent Breast Sweat
I suppose if you’re going to market a product like this, might as well embrace the humor right? So Fresh, So Dry makes this Fresh Breasts product which promises to keep your area fresh and dry, preventing perspiration.
It’s all-natural, scent-free, aluminum-,talc- and paraben-free too.
The lotion dries quickly, so it won’t leave behind a white clumpy mess like baby powder does, and it’s typically under $15 a bottle! Check the current price here.
I HAVE had a chance to try this one out and must say, it’s pretty good! A dime-size amount goes a long way so use carefully.
The lotion itself is white, not sticky, but dries on clear as long as you don’t use too much. Too much product and you will have a bit of white residue leftover.
I do have to wash my hands after applying as the product dries white and quickly. It works great under the boobs and in between your girls too. And I can say the product lasts a pretty long time.

Lush Silky Underwear Dusting Powder
If you’ve ever wondered how to prevent boob sweat, you’ve probably tried baby powder at some point.
While I haven’t had a chance to try this one out, I’ve heard amazing things about Lush’s silky underwear dusting powder.
(I was using Clean Original Veil but it’s been since discontinued; they have a new version here but I haven’t tried it yet.)
Yes, by the name it’s supposed to be used, well, use your imagination. But reviewers use it just about everywhere, including breast sweat too.
It’s typically under $12 for a canister that lasts quite a long time and the jasmine scent is said to be a hit among the gents. Cocoa butter that’s in the powder will leave your skin silky smooth, too. Get it here.
Argan Oil to Prevent Boob Sweat
Argan oil has anti-microbial properties, and it’s definitely a more “natural” approach.
Fashion Tips to Beat Boob Sweat
Are there certain clothes you can wear that will help you sweat less? You bet!
Stay away from synthetic fabrics and things that make you sweat! I’m looking at you, leather.
Instead, look for moisture-wicking materials that are breathable. That means no padded bras, which just add extra bulk, and ditch the underwire too if you can.
For day to day, you may want to consider ditching the bra altogether.
Need some pasties? These silicone coverups are my current favorites. They are thicker than the typical pasty which often shows a flower through your shirt (why did they design it that way?!) and they come in three different shades!
They are also completely reusable, just rinse them out and pop them back in their little case.
Stick to Dark-Colored Clothing
My workout clothes are all one color: BLACK! This is for two major reasons:
- It makes laundry super easy.
- It’s way harder to spot sweat in black clothing.
Bottom Line: If you’re worried about visible sweat lines, wear black to camouflage.
