While I don't have boobs, I have known about dreaded boob sweat all my life. It can be a hassle and honestly, it can be a little embarrassing. But boob sweat is about to become a thing of the past thanks to the Ta-Ta Towel! Thanks, science, for finally doing something important.
Erin Robertson, who is no doubt on some kind of Nobel Prize short list for her invention, came up with idea while getting ready to go on the always stressful first date. As she put it:
I was living in Los Angeles and getting ready to go out on a first date. As I got out of the shower and started getting ready, I could not stop sweating - not because I was about to go on a first date, but because my tiny A/C unit was broken AND it was the beginning of summer. I had a lot working against me. I tried everything: I tucked wash cloths under my breasts, I tried dumping baby powder all over me, I even put a t-shirt on and tucked it under my boobs. But the wash cloths looked ridiculous, the baby powder made me look more like dough, and the T-shirt was making me sweat even more. While I was blow-drying my hair, I just kept thinking: "There HAS to be a better way to keep the beads of sweat from dripping down my stomach.”
That better way is the Ta-Ta Towel. Taking the concept of the over the shoulder boulder holder, Robertson borrowed her mom's sewing machine while home for the holidays and the rest is boob history. Other than the smart phone, I really don't know if there has been a better invention in the past 20 years or so. Honestly, I hope these take off and it's not because I want to see Ashley Graham, Charlotte McKinney, Kate Upton, and Alexandra Daddario become spokesmodels, I really do think this is a great invention. Anything to help boobs be there best, I'm all for.
