Do you put deodorant here?

A Few girls at work told me they put deodorant under their boobs I never thought to do that b/c I never thought under my boobs smell. Does anyone else do it, or put deodorant anywhere other than thier underarms?

  • Nope, I wouldn't say that I don't sweat there so to speak but I do not stink.

  • Actually, it is recommended for overweight women, or women with very large breasts. That area is susceptible to fungus infections that remain in the skin for years. the deodorant prevents it.

  • Not because it stinks but because it sweats, but, yes, I do.

  • what scout/jewjew said. skin-stuck-to-skin will sweat and cause bacteria/odor/infections. deodorant or talc/cornstarch will keep the sweating at bay, keep the skin cooler.

  • Actually if you put deoterant on you vajajay after shaving it prevents ingrown hairs. But I've never heard of the boobs but why not?

  • Never thought of putting it under my boobs, but the more I think about it, it makes sense. Mine get sweaty sometimes if I don't have a bra on for a period of time. I do put Shower to Shower powder on after my showers though, which includes using it under my boobs.

  • Women with larger breasts do this sometimes because the larger your breasts the more you tend to sweat underneath them. It just makes some people feel cleaner and more comfortable. I have large breasts and I don't do it but I could understand why some women do.

  • not under, but right down the middle and generally only need it during the summer. I have more cleavage than overage- you could say. But sometimes it sweats in there and gets funky- so when I have a long day out I just throw a swipe on there.
