This dependable top-seller has earned a pile of five-star reviews from relieved shoppers who can venture out in this season's swampiest weather without feeling drenched, constricted and uncomfortable. Right now, you can nab one for 65% off, making this bra only $17 in certain sizes and colors.

This full-coverage bra isn't just lightweight — it's made with a moisture-wicking "cool comfort" fabric that provides more built-in ventilation.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

You can't go wrong with a $17 bra, especially when these essentials can easily cost upward of $50. This is within a dollar of the lowest price we've seen this year, but we don't expect the sale price to stick around much longer. Cooling clothing items will be in higher demand as the high temps keep coming.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Five-star reviewers say this Bali bra has nothing short of magical powers. "You can hardly feel that you have a bra on in hot, humid weather. Bought two more after wearing the first one!" wrote a fan. It helps that the cooling fabric is thin, keeping skin from getting too stuffy. It's also seamless, which goes a long way toward preventing warm-weather chafing.

Another major draw of the cooling bra: You can wear it under all those thin tees and tanks without the whole world getting a clear view of your undergarments. "It's very smooth with no lace detail or noticeable edges, so it doesn't show underneath even my slinky-feeling T-shirts," a fan revealed.

What reviewers say 💬

More than 24,000 Amazon reviewers have given the Bali One Smooth U Ultra Light Bra a five-star rating, with many highlighting its comfort and coverage.

Pros 👍

One shopper gave this red-hot cooling bra a "10/10" and even proclaimed that it "conceals back fat." Plenty of others agree — this is a no-brainer for your warm-weather wardrobe.

"Fits so nice and comfortably," wrote another devotee. "Makes my boobs appear smaller and offers support. Minimal spillage for once! Reduced back fat! Bonus!"

Another wearer agreed: "Tried several other brands for 'minimizer' or 'smoother' type bras. Followed measurement guidelines for size. This is the only one that fits well and separates things for larger busts. Other brands just squished things together. This bra is very soft and comfortable, and it has a very thin layer of material that helps hide the nips."

"Comfortable at last," said a fourth reviewer. "It fits like a dream. No pinching, chafing or poking."

"This bra is the most comfortable bra I have worn in a long time," marveled another mega-fan. "I just ordered two more in different colors. I wore it to work (dental assistant) and I didn't have to pull it down or adjust it once. Very lightweight and very thin padding."

Cons 👎

A few wearers noted that optimal sizing may be slightly different from the guide provided by the brand. One reviewer recommended sizing down: "Adjusted straps all the way down, and the bra was still clearly a cup size too big. It was nice and stretchy, and definitely as breathable as advertised ... I will say there's a super-cheap plastic gem thing hanging from the center that's totally unnecessary and doesn't add to the style. Clip that off, and the peek of mesh at the top of the cup keeps this bra pretty and classy!"

Another shopper added that the straps may leave a little to be desired. "Fits well, comfortable. Just wish the straps cinched just a bit more as they're a little loose on me." (If you need to add a little tension to the straps, grab one of these bra strap clip sets to tighten them — they can even transform your bra into a halter style.)

This full-coverage cooling bra has convertible straps and comes in 14 colors (for just a few bucks more, you can get it in classic black). Bring on those racerback tank tops!
