So it's sweltering here in So CA, and I can't seem to find a bra made of cotton that breathes.

Can anyone recommend one? Brand? Website... anything! I'm about to resort to the ones advertised in the Sunday newspaper coupon section!

Victoria Secret was having a clearance on the cotton bras:

It sounds like you would need some type of microfiber. Try Breezies bras. No matter how hot and humid, I never have a problem.

Microfiber? Really? That'll breathe enough so I won't feel all clammy?

Try the Hanes/Bali/Playtex website. They've always got plenty of cotton bras.

But SXMGirl has a point -- if you really want to avoid the soggy sticky feeling, get a bra spun with CoolMax or other wicking microfiber. Title 9 Sports has some great ones -- I personally recommend the "Not a Bomber" bra.

My favorite brand is Barely There. They are the most comfortable bras I've ever worn!

Walmart. Seriously. Hanes and Fruit of the Loom and Playtex all make cotton bras, and they are cheap enough that I don't bother line drying them. I buy a week's worth at a time in different colors and replace them in six months or so. I am busty and find they give lots of support, and I live in So. Central Texas and they are the only thing I can stand in this heat.
