Hot weather, no sweat., Summer is here and the weather is getting hotter and hotter…often unbearable for the “girls” in many parts of the country.
Summer is the time for smooth shaven legs too, but don’t put away your nylons or panty hose too fast. Why? There is a definite use for them when it comes to staying cool.
For me, living in the hot weather part of the United States, the past few summers have not been fun when it comes to being dressed and out-and-about any time before 10 PM. My breast forms often become uncomfortable due to wetness…in the form of perspiration…when the temperature hit 90 or more. Yes, good old sweat. It’s no fun wearing a wet bra, due to the contact between the forms and ones bare skin. I’ve tried powders, anti-perspirant and paper towels to limit the flow, but nothing has worked. What was a girl to do?
I found help in the form of my hosiery collection and a pocket bra or pocket dress.
For years, I have always saved my hose when a pair gets a runner. I cut off the leg with the runner and save the panty and other leg for what I call “double duty,” when I will wear two pair of hose with one good leg each. It’s just another way for a girl to save money too so I can spend more on the fabulous summer fashions.
For the summer months, I use the “double duty” hose as breast inserts. I usually use two pair per side, which combined with a good, enhancing push-up bra, will still produce lovely breasts and if desired, excellent cleavage.
I fold and roll the half hose from the panty to the toe to create a 4-inch wide form. I prefer lighter or nude colored hose as it will blend with a crème bra and my skin type. Once the four hose are rolled, be sure your bra straps and back support are as tight as possible. Slide each form in to place inside your bra so the cup is firmly packed. Pull your natural male breast skin up and over the hose and Walla!!! You should have nicely formed breast.
My pocket bra and black pocket dress also have been life savers in hot weather. The bra and the dress come with pocket inserts for either my forms or the hosiery. Either way, the pockets, when filled and adjusted to fit your breast area, look great, feel natural and give a bounce to your step. You can buy the the pocket bra or the pocket bra dresses from Suddenly Fem with discrete safe shipping.
Other girlfriends beat the heat by using bird seed in a plastic baggy or mini-balloons in place of forms. I have tried both techniques in the past, but prefer the panty hose. My fears are the baggy will burst and the bird seed will spill out, or the balloon will pop. And, I don’t like the texture of the plastic baggy or balloon against my skin.
