Women Travelers - Any good bras for going to the Costa Rican rainforest?
Apr 16, 11, 9:54 am
Ladies, I need some recommendations....... I am heading to Costa Rica (Osa and Arenal) and would love some recommendations for undergarments. Specifically I'm looking for bras(non sports bras) that are quick dry but still give a nice shape(I'm on the smaller side). As always any advice is appreciated.

Well, I'm not small, but I've hiked in Costa Rica:D I love a bra with coolmax, and I always wear an underwire except on overnight flights. I've bought some great Moving Comfort bras from Sierra Trading Post, though I admit many are sports bra styles. Not all, though! I have some cheapo microfiber bras from Target (Gilligan & O'Malley) that dry quickly, and you might want to check out Title Nine - they have a category "Best Wicking Bras"
The 24-7 all day bra looks cute - wicking but not a sports bra, made for a smaller chest size.
Nordstrom also carries some wicking bras....As will outdoors stores like REI, but again - they'll probably be more sports bra oriented.

Thanks, definitely a good start! I'm not opposed to sports bras per say, I'm just looking to avoid to smooshed uniboob look on vacation. I'm heading to an outdoor store tomorrow and I also have a Nordstroms in the area.

The reason I like Moving Comfort is because they make very supportive larger bras with actual cups - much more comfortable for me to exercise than with a pullover stretchy bra that gives uniboob;)
(you can search the MC website by bra size or type of bra)
I've been known to use the Cara for travel: http://www.movingcomfort.com/product/344873/350006/_/Cara
The Maia is my favorite for the gym: http://www.movingcomfort.com/product/344873/350011/_/Maia
The Iris is also nice for longer wear - like, if I'm going to go for a short hike but then out to the pub afterwards (yes, I know, defeating the purpose:eek:) http://www.movingcomfort.com/product/344873/300124/_/Iris_AB
Good luck with your shopping - hope you find something comfortable and quick-drying!
