In the heat of summer, there’s nothing worse than boob sweat.
You’re rushing to get ready, minding your own business, and you feel a tell-tale trickle snaking down your torso. Before you know it, the trickle is a flood.
Fortunately, none of us are alone in the boob-sweat battle. A sweaty chest is perfectly normal — in fact, most women will experience it in one form or another.
Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t put our heads together and think up some solutions to stop boob sweat in its tracks.
Fortunately, an awesome lady living in hot ‘n’ sweaty California may have come up with the perfect solution to banish those half-moon stains forever.
Her invention is called the Ta-Ta Towel, a specially shaped towel designed to hug your “girls” and sop up any rivulets of sweat at the same time.
Inspired by a bad date night and a broken air conditioner, the Ta-Ta Towel might just be the boob-sweat solution of your dreams.
The Ta-Ta Towel, available for purchase online, is a range of elasticated, halter-neck towels that are perfectly absorbent on your sweatiest days.
The terry cloth towel hooks around the neck, while the two elasticated cups at either end hug your bosom.
The towel was invented by Los Angeles resident Erin Robertson, inspired by a broken A/C unit on a hot and sticky day.
In the ‘About’ section of her website, she shares the Ta-Ta Towel’s origin story, writing:
I was living in Los Angeles and getting ready to go out on a first date. As I got out of the shower and started getting ready, I could not stop sweating — not because I was about to go on a first date, but because my tiny A/C unit was broken AND it was the beginning of summer.
I had a lot working against me. I tried everything: I tucked wash cloths under my breasts, I tried dumping baby powder all over me, I even put a T-shirt on and tucked it under my boobs.
But the wash cloths looked ridiculous, the baby powder made me look more like dough, and the T-shirt was making me sweat even more.
While I was blow-drying my hair, I just kept thinking: “There HAS to be a better way to keep the beads of sweat from dripping down my stomach.” Sound familiar?
When I went home to visit my family over the holidays, I asked my mom if she could teach me how to use a sewing machine so I could sew what I had envisioned. After spending an hour trying to dust the old machine off, it was then that my mom told me she wasn’t sure if the sewing machine even worked. It did not.
When I got back to Los Angeles, I made a pattern by taping four pieces of printer paper together. I borrowed a (brand new) sewing machine from my best friend and enrolled myself at the University of YouTube, where I taught myself how to sew. After I tore up every last towel in my apartment, I finally had my prototype.
Erin quickly discovered that her towels were a hit with friends — and not always for the reasons she had envisioned.
Not only did the towels soak up boob sweat, they also seemed to help with myriad other breast-related dilemmas, from heat rashes to leaky nipples while breastfeeding.
Women from all walks of life started to embrace her invention.
Nursing moms are particularly enthusiastic about the invention, because it serves a lot of purposes during breastfeeding.
Not only is it a quick and easy way to cover up and stay warm between nursing sessions with a fussy infant, the towel can also absorb stray drips and leaks.
According to the website, the gentle material — absorbent terry cloth with a soft rayon liner — is also exceptionally gentle on sore, chafed nipples.
So far, the Ta-Ta Towel has gained plenty of loyal followers, but it has yet to break into the mainstream.
Since it’s definitely a unique product, it might take a little time for women to embrace it, though the testimonials on their website certainly make a pretty good case.
One woman writes, “It’s sooo comfy, I never want to take it off! I wish I could wear it all day. My boobs have never loved me more!”
Lots of fans are enthusiastic about the comfort it gives them around the house.
We all love to shed our bras the minute we walk in the door, but for ladies with larger chests, ditching the underwire also means going without support, which can be uncomfortable.
This towel helps bridge the gap, like a fluffy, cuddly sports bra.
What do you think, would you ever wear a Ta-Ta Towel?
