Beat the Heat! Everything You Need to Know About Our Best Selling Cooling Bras
Bras and summer. You’ve probably never considered them to be a match made in fashion heaven. We mean, good bras are hard to come by at the best of times (it’s actually why we created Giapenta – more on that later). But during the warmer months? Sheesh. It’s easier to find a free room in the Hamptons.
Sure, most mornings you slip on the best bra you own and think ‘Today won’t be so bad. The office aircon will be pumping – I’ll be fine”. But by the time lunchtime rolls around and you step outside into the blazing heat? The struggle is real. You’re suddenly sticky, clammy and ready to rip that bra right off. And you’ve got another four hours of work to power though!
You’d be hard pressed to find a woman who can’t relate to this situation. Of all the joys summer brings – balmy nights out with your girlfriends, picnics in the sun, fresh strawberries at the beach – an ill-fitting bra can throw your day off.
But we promise it doesn’t have to be this way. Some bras can actually help cool you down. And no, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort and support in the process.
While all comfortable bras will be soft, well-fitted and hopefully make you forget you’re even wearing one at all, the best bras for summer will have a few extra details. We’re talking about cooling bras – and the best cooling bras will offer all day support and comfort without trapping heat.
When it comes to cooling bras, finding a bra made with the right fabric is key. You’ll also want to seek out styles that don’t have excess padding or slippery straps that can cause discomfort and excess moisture when the weather leaves you feeling hotter than hot.
What you need is a bra that will keep you cool and supported, while providing weightless comfort.
Fortunately, we manufacture some of the best cooling bras on the market. These are our top tips for finding the right style for you this summer, and everything you need to know about our best sellers.
When the heat is on, a cooling bra can make all the difference
You probably love summer for the glorious sunshine, longer days and weekend getaways. And while it all sounds delectable in theory, when temperatures rise about 85 degrees you can end up feeling sticky and gross. Often a traditional bra will only exacerbate the situation – they can hold in moisture. Not exactly cute, right?
Without a cooling bra, the solutions to this problem were slim. You could scour the internet for the best bralettes made with cotton. You could ditch your bra all together. Or you you could simply choose to keep calm and suffer through it all.
Thankfully, those days are over. The invention of cooling bras mean you can now feel comfortable all day without compromising on support.
Cooling bras are designed to keep women comfortable during the warmer months, or when experiencing hormonal changes due to menopause, But they’re also great if you’re someone who just runs a little hot or is prone to boob sweat from time to time (aren’t we all?).
When you think of your favorite underwear, your mind probably goes to soft cottons, elegant silks or beautiful bamboo. But cooling bras are actually made with smart textiles that regulate temperature and keep moisture at bay.
These fabrics do more than look good and keep you covered – our tech fabric proactively regulates your body temperature to combat temperature swings before they start.
We know what you’re thinking – ‘Tech textiles? Isn’t that what my well-worn yoga leggings and that best sports bra I’ve ever bought are made from?”
And you’re probably right. But temperature-regulating fabrics can also be used for undergarments.
Enter the cooling bra.
Is there a difference between cooling bras and breathable bras?
This is a great question and the answer may surprise you. While many bras will claim to be made with “breathable” fabric, it doesn’t automatically mean they’re cooling bras. Breathable bras will usually be made using bamboo, soft lace or cotton. They come in elegant styles, sportier styles or even everyday styles – yep that best t-shirt bra you throw on most mornings is most likely made with breathable cotton. It’s probably why you gravitate to it so frequently!
They’re designed to minimize sweat, wick moisture and allow for air to flow freely to your chest. But they won’t necessarily cool you down.
Our exclusive, patented smart fabric, TempPro™ is different. Yes, it’s totally breathable, but it actually solves your temperature woes by proactively regulating your body temperature to keep you cool and comfortable all day (and night) long.
Can you tell me a little more about the technology behind your cooling bra?
You know how you have a smart TV? And a smart phone? Well, we made a smart bra. Actually, we made more than one. The high-performing tech fabric we lean on for our best selling cooling bras was originally used in NASA spacesuits! In fact, the fabric is so smart that natural cooling properties are simply part of its DNA.
Our exclusive, patented smart fabric, TempPro™ , is designed to solve all of your temperature issues. Unlikely “moisture-wicking” fabrics, which simply respond to your overheating body, our cooling bras proactively regulate your temperature, keeping you cool and comfortable round the clock.
While the technology and benefits are seamlessly built into our bras’ designs, it doesn’t mean they’re dowdy. The Giapenta range takes a science-meets-style approach. Plus, we make bras for big busts, bras for small busts and full figure bras. Yep, we’ve got your back no matter what size you are!
Our cooling bras will keep you feeling chilled, but they also feature delicate lace to up the flirt factor, ultra-soft memory foam cups for a sensual silhouette and soft mesh details for added breathability.
So say goodbye to perspiration and hello to the most innovative, comfortable bra you’ll ever own!

“I have fallen in love with my Brooklyn Demi Bra from GIAPENTA! I wear it nearly every day because it's got the support I need AND the fabric is so super soft, it makes me feel like a goddess. I honestly didn't believe that the fabric could stop my boob sweat (living in Texas every additional layer counts), but I was so wrong! It has not only worked to control my body temperature in the craziest weather, but it has been a game-changer for me when I'm at work and the AC is on full blast! I also love that I can wear it with anything. 10/10 I would recommend this bra!” - Courtney, CA

“Never thought I'd say this about a full coverage bra, but the Sonoma is so sexy! It gives me all of the coverage and support I need and believe me when you wear a 38 DD it's almost impossible to find a bra that fits, let alone one that's this comfortable. GIAPENTA ticks all of the boxes for me: superb fit, super comfortable (the fabric is so soft) and I look smokin' hot wearing it! The lace is also very pretty. Very happy with my purchase!
