Boob sweat is the bane of our existence in the summer, and it can strike at any time you get slightly overheated. Cue the uncomfortable dripping sensation and the rings of underboob moisture showing up like smiley faces on your shirt. Why does this happen?
Sweating is the secretion of fluids by sweat glands made up of eccrine glands and apocrine glands onto the surface of the skin, mainly for the purpose of maintaining body temperature within an ideal range. When body temperature rises due to physical exertion or being in hot surroundings, the evaporation of sweat from the skin produces a cooling effect. Sweat itself does not smell but body odor may occur when bacteria on the skin break down acids contained in the sweat produced by apocrine glands, which are located in the armpits, breasts, and genital-anal area.

Not all plus-size women have big boobs, but I do. In fact, I had big boobs when I wasn't categorically plus-size just as many slender women do, as well. And while the media may tell us that big boobs are luxurious and glamorous, they are also a pain in the neck literally and figuratively.
Do your breasts smell like beer? Or do you notice that your breasts smell like yeast? You're probably not imagining things: There's a chance "the girls" have a yeast infection. Your chest might seem like an unlikely spot for a yeast infection.
