Breathable Mesh Bras (in All Sizes) for Hot Summer Days
| By Estelle Puleston
Summer is in full swing, and everyone’s thoughts are on how to beat the heat. Holly’s recommending Megababe to stave off boob sweat. Wen’s sharing some breezy nightwear. And now it’s my turn to persuade you to try wearing mesh bras.
When it comes to breathable underthings, you have a few fabric choices. Natural fibers like silk and bamboo are great. So is the technical ‘spacer fabric.' But they’re all on the expensive side and can be hard to find.
The great thing about mesh is that it’s breathable by its very nature. It’s full of holes! And you can find a mesh bra at practically any price point. The lightweight build makes it easy to wash and quick to dry, too.
Embroidered mesh is a big lingerie trend right now. And sheer lace is equally breathable. However, for those wanting a more straightforward, streamlined look, I bring you 21 plain(ish) mesh bras. You'll find some made from tulle, which is a very fine mesh that looks and feels smooth. Others are closer to fishnet. But they’ve all got one thing in common. They’ll help keep your bust nice and cool!
