Are you bothered by boob sweat?

Agent 23 asks: I hate under-boob sweat. It annoys me to no end. Plus it’s not like I can avoid it when I exercise. While sweat from everywhere else on my body evaporates within minutes, underboob sweat just sits there. I know I have the option of showering immediately after working out, but I don’t like using the gym’s shower, and I do like going to a coffee shop to relax by myself after my work out. Soooo, would it be safe to put antiperspirant under my boobs to prevent under-boob sweat?

Sarah Bellum says:

Despite all my begging and pleading, I can’t get the well endowed Right Brain to answer this question, so you’re stuck with my answer. But don’t worry, I’ll help you find a bit of Ban for your boobs, some Degree for your decollatage, or maybe even a little Arrid for under your areolas.

As the Righty previously blogged, antiperspirants really aren’t made to be used all over your body. In this case, I can think of three problems you might have if you put antiperspirant under your boobs.

Over heating

Antiperspirant stops you from sweating and that means your body can’t cool itself like its supposed to. If you put it all over your body, you might get dangerously over heated. But unless you have HUGE breasts, I doubt this will be a problem.


I know antiperspirants can be irritating sometimes. Not sure how it might feel if some of it got up around the around the tender nippular area, if you catch my drift.

Stained clothing

You know those yellow stains your shirts get on their armpits? That’s because some aluminum salts used in antiperspirants combine with certain kinds of fabrics. If you get Secret on your Victoria’s Secret, you could ruin a bra. Or get underarm stains on your stomach, if that makes any sense.

The Beauty Brains booby…uh, bottom line

If you want my official answer, I say that antiperspirants are over the counter drugs that are designed to used only under your arms. But if you’re a wild and crazy gal, you might just ignore my advice and give it a try anyway. If you do, be sure to write back and tell us how it worked!
