Boob sweat — The Bump

Boob sweat

My best friend mentioned that she puts a little deodorant under her boobs daily because they get so sweaty. She says they get a slight sweat smell when she doesn't. I do not have enormous knockers like her and have never encountered this problem. I don't even know how one goes about an underboob sniff.

Is this a common practice? LMK I'd like to tease her if it's not a normal thing to do.

  • I'm a 38DD, and my girls sweat. Its gross. I don't use deodorant though. I think that's kind of weird. During the summer, I'll put a little baby powder or corn starch under them to keep from getting a rash. My sweat is slightly smelly, but not enough that another person could even smell it.

  • I've done it before working out. But not regularly.

  • I've never heard of that at all.  I do get boob sweat in the Summer when it is humid as all get out here.  I have occasionally put baby powder under the girls to absorb moisture, but not daily and never deodorant.

    I'm team make fun of her.  ;)

  • I may tease her a little then. I know how that area gets sweat especially in the summer. I wasn't sure if it was common to have such a daily issue with it that it required it's own stick of deodorant. I did forget to mention that she has a special stick just for her boobs.

  • This thread has been very informative.

  • I get boob sweat, and mine are a bit on the large side.  But I don't deodorize underneath.  I just take a shower.  If I notice a sweaty smell emanating from my chest area, I imagine the rest of me ought to smell pretty sweaty too.  So my logic is sweaty = time for shower.

    I have small boobs now, but have had them big before. They sweat at any size (although I live in a very humid climate). I have never put powder or deoderant under them, but I wouldn't side eye someone for it.

    FTR I would still make fun of her, cos that is the type of friend I am.

  • I use deodorant under my boobs because it gets sweaty under there. In the summer, when I wear a dress or skirt I rub a little on my inner thighs...because it sweats there. I'm not ashamed of either practice.

    ETA For those saying to just shower, the deodorant is a preventive measure not an odor cover up.

    My inner thighs rub together so in the summer, I use deodorant there, too.  It helps them from sticking together.  Dude, tricks of the trade right here.

  • This has been enlightening. I am still teasing her though. She has it coming.

    I am petite with no boobs, but I have a big butt and big feet. She has a theory about this. My feet keep my butt from knocking me off balance.

    LOL.  I am tall, curvy and have big boobs.  I have abnormally small feet.  My brothers and friends always tease me wondering how I don't tip over.

    I have freakishly long toes. I can write with my feet.

  • I've never done it, but baby powder doesn't sound like a bad idea.

    I have heard of this. I have DD's but luckily do not have a boob-sweat issue. We went to Disney in the dead of summer one year and someone told me to bring powder for the booby sweats. I don't think I would DO my boobs but I probably wouldn't mock someone who did. I think it would be grosser if she allowed her boobs to stank.

    I took a note from my H's sweaty balls and used powder for my switties and thigh chafing. Gold bond is the where it's at, folks.

    We call it Thousand Elves.  Because apparently it is like a thousand little elves tickling your balls.  Not that I have balls, but I do assume that would be a rather pleasurable sensation.

    I always know when DH has gold bonded his balls, because there's a fine film of powder on my sink/cabinet ledges. I hate that medicated smell.

    I resorted to this last week after I developed a terrible rash under the girls overnight (ugh, these hormonal nightsweats are killers). That ish worked wonders; the rash was gone within a day.

  • I have used deoderant in the cleavage area as a preventative when I know I'm going to be in the heat/humidity. Nothing worse than feeling sweat drip down your cleavage.

  • DH uses baby powder on his ball. However, they are rather long.

    Maybe I should tell him to use his speed stick on them instead?
