Summer has finally arrived! Temperatures are soaring and while the tropical conditions give us the chance to break out our summer wardrobes and show off our holiday tans, it can also bring with it some less than desirable (or comfortable) side effects; "sweaty boobs". Here at Figleaves, we believe that the key to heatwave-proof dressing starts with the perfect bra, so we’ve handpicked the styles that will keep you cool when the mercury rises. Think breathable fits, lightweight fabrics and high fashion details designed to be seen. These are the essential bras that will beat the heat and elevate your summer style.

From the lightweight feel to the multi-position straps, the Chantelle C Chic Sexy Spacer Bra is a definite summer staple. Crafted for optimum comfort, the spacer knit cups let the skin breathe, while the pleated straps coupled with beautiful French detailing lend covetable, feminine appeal. If you’re all about statement style, look no further than the Freya Fancies Underwire Plunge Bra. With its delicate lace and on-trend gated back detail, this bra is made to seen; perfect for pairing with low back tops for a pop of colour. The deep plunge cut is summer style-ready and this bold beauty is available up to a J cup.

"When temperatures rise, you need a bra that can stand the heat."

Let your outfit do the talking and say hello to the Gossard Glossies Sheer Bra. Invisible under your clothes, the lightweight moulded cups provide a barely-there feel and a hint of shimmer really ups the glamour quota. To channel laidback luxe, opt for the Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette. The signature branding isn’t the only thing we love about this comfy crop. The super soft cotton is breathable and moisture wicking; perfect for long, hot summer days.
