For More, I recently tried a new bra that claims to reduce perspiration. At first, I was nervous—would it work? Already I was sweating. I ran it through several challenges. Some low tech: layering on a fleece jacket while jogging at the gym. Some stressful: navigating a business party packed with strangers. Some spontaneous: 10 million hot flashes. The verdict? Two cups up. The material really does pull heat from the body and absorb per-spiration. The bra is lacy and pretty, perky and comfortable. Good for first dates, job interviews and all those other times you want to look hot without getting hot.
