Across the land, hot and bothered women (and some men) are complaining of an inconvenient-yet-unavoidable affliction: underboob sweat.
In the current climate, our light and airy summer clothes are doing nothing to diffuse the issue. The sweat is seeping down our chests, through our clothes and into our bras, meaning we're washing them at twice the usual rate.
Women the world over rejoiced when the Ta-Ta towel launched last year, a ridiculous-looking piece of towelling that slings over your neck and holds up your boobs to prevent the problem, and there are various other methods of damage control: from boob deodorant to sticking sanitary towels down your bra (glamour level? Off the charts).
But right now, it's too hot to actually deal with the problem, so we'll stick to complaining. People with even a hint of underboob cleavage are airing their grievances online and wishing the hot weather away. We feel your pain.
All the future holds for me now is underboob sweat, blotchy red heat rashes, simply enormous fluffy hair that looks frizzy and ugly no matter what and huge dark circles under my eyes from being too hot and sweaty to sleep. That's it forever. Date me!!! #heatwaveUK pic.twitter.com/508t79KBhp— mrs rosa diaz (@isawfireworks) July 23, 2018
105 degrees today. If I could reclaim all of my underboob sweat from today I know that could be self-sufficient in all of my water needs for a full year.— Cleavage Crumbs (@CleavageCrumbs) July 24, 2018
Some shared their solutions for dealing with the issue.
At least men are suffering too, in their own way.
