Why do our boobs sweat?

So, why exactly do our boobs sweat?

Well, taking a step back and getting into the nitty gritty of how sweat works in general, anytime skin touches skin, sweat can shine. The evaporation of sweat can only happen where there’s airflow, so breasts are super prone to getting sweaty – especially for those with larger breasts or ones that droop.  

And when humidity, heat, friction and bad air circulation come into play, your boobs usually don’t stand a chance! Sweat evaporation is blocked with bells on, and the areas under or between your breasts can get sweatier than ever. 

Can hormones cause sweaty boobs?

While environmental and external factors are the biggest factors for sweaty boobs, sometimes it can be triggered by hormonal issues, too. If you’ve noticed your boos are sweatier than usual or your notice a new smell alongside your sweat, you might find talking to a dermatologist helpful.

You might even feel burning sensations because of broken skin – ouch!
