I’ve always been a “sweater”. When I was young it wasn’t a problem. Yes, it gets very hot in Michigan but there was always a lake nearby I could jump into and even as teenagers we never felt too cool for sprinklers, water guns or a homemade SlipNSlide. Growing up in Michigan, it was never as humid as it gets here in NYC. It is absolutely true what they say “It isn’t the heat, it’s the humidity that kills you.”
In the summer I become a different kind of “hot mama”. I swear it’s like my breasts are ginormous heat factories! No one can convince me there aren’t little men in there whose only job in the factory is to keep the furnaces going. Even after I get inside in the air conditioning, it takes me at least 15 minutes to cool off. I guess it takes the little men in the heat factories a while to get the message that the work whistle has sounded and it’s time to go home.
It starts from my breasts and radiates upwards to my neck and face and outward to my armpits, and I begin to sweat. All up under my boobs, on my face and under my pits. This. Is. Not. Sexy.
Let’s just be real. Unless you’re working out or having sex, sweating under your boobs feels nasty as hell! It also leaves awful marks on your clothes. Just wondering if anyone can see how much sweating works on my nerves, which makes me sweat more. I can almost picture my beautiful bra soaking it up. It makes me want to rush home and give my beauties a good wash while apologizing profusely for taking them out in the heat.
So what’s a busty gal to do? I can’t go braless and let them get a little air. I’ve tried the old school powder method but hate that when it mixes with the sweat, I’ve basically created the base for paper mâché!
In the meantime, I’m reaching out to my readers. What are your sweaty solutions?
