When to Wear a Cotton Bra

Cotton bras are great when:

  • You want a soft, comfortable bra
  • Sleeping
  • Lounging around the house
  • Doing yoga or other range-of-motion exercises

When not to wear a cotton bra:

  • When it's hot or humid; cotton bras tend to retain moisture and may develop an odor over time
  • You may not want to wear a cotton bra when you're doing housework; if you work up a sweat, it will retain moisture and may smell
  • You're working out heavily; cotton becomes less supportive when moist, and also retains moisture and odors
