Future not sure when, but want to walk it all probably alone as difficult getting someone to come
You can buy seamless sports bras like seamless socks which are brilliant and stop chaffing

I brought two BraLelulias (I’m sure I’m spelling that wrong) from Spanx: one black and one nude. They are FANTASTIC in terms of comfort, support and quick wash and dry. Once I get home I’m tossing ALL of my other bras out and only wearing these. I could not be happier with this style and brand.

I like my Champion sports bras. They aren't specifically quick dry, but they dry fast enough. I took 2 and never had an issue with them drying on time.
I tried that, too, but they never dried fast enough. I left them in Burgos and bought two bralettes. Worked great.

I have used my normal bras to the pilmgrimage, as I am not running, but they don't dry fast at all. However, it is what I feel most comfortable wearing.

I use ExOfficio crossover bras. Dries super fast and comfy for my C cup. I'm not running, just hiking so I don't need "support". Not suitable for larger sizes, though.

Going with one Champion sports bra and one ExOfficio crossover as noted above. The ExOfficio dries super fast when rolled in a towel then hung to dry. Champion affordable, at approx 25$ and great support. ExOfficio 60$, not cheap so hoping it proves it's worth.

Check out Knix bras and especially their leakproof undies...holds in some of the sweat. Don’t smell, and dries fast.

Thank you to everyone who made a recommendation. I found the simple explanations that accompanied them really helpful.

I echo the support for Champion bras. But I've used all sorts and am happily taking two Reebok running bras this year - they've never been to France and Spain, the others have, and I like to be fair with my favourites :). They all take about the same time to dry, which is not a priority for me.

I like support when I hike, and the bra I hike in is also the perfect one for when I get the urge to strip-n-dip, a common condition that many people face when in proximity with water. Bra no.2 aims for the closest level of comfort to that offered by the perfect bra, i.e. the one that doesn't exist.

Hello
Can anyone recommend a quick drying bra that gives decent support. I have a merino wool one, but after wearing for a few hours it seems to stretch a bit and there is no support. Thanks
I wear my normal bra. Comfortable and fast drying

If your bra, or any item of clothing for that matter, doesn’t dry fast enough, after your shower roll it in your towel to soak up as much moisture as you can. Then it will dry much more quickly.

Agree with you on the Bra llelujahs by Spanx. Not cheap, but dry as fast as a sports bra...come underwire or not. Recommend the front closure, because this means that the back is a straight (wide) across piece of soft fabric, with no areas to rub. The straps also are wide and soft. Only problem might be if you are short between shoulders and ribcage, as mine had no strap adjustment. I got rid of the sports bra half way there and stuck with the Bra llelujahs.

I took one sport bra and two normal bras. I found myself wearing my normal bras most of the time. I went in the summer and they always dried on time as long as I got them on the line before taking my afternoon nap.
I just updated my chick-friendly packing list with some input from the Camigas Facebook group: you can find it here.

Put your feet up after walking. It's good for you.

My big girls like the Hallelujah bra from Title Nine. They have a “large” selection, meaning, a lot of them. The girls never sweated. Not frilly but adequate to swim in.

I've never paid that much for the ExOfficio bra. They sell for like $26 and I have 2! Amazon has them for this much right now.

~$60 is the price on the Exofficio site.

I am loving the 2XL compression bra It's like a tank top and is perfect if you are a C cup or less.
