    Wacoal makes wireless bras in large cup sizes, and they do dry quickly.

    Recommendations for (ahem) 'Unmentionables'

    Although I'm not a huge fan of their current leadership, I use lululemon tata tamers for travel bras. They have a large range of sizes, are very supportive, underwire free, can be worn regular or racer back, are wicking and wash/dry quickly. I usually travel with just 1. I've heard good reviews of Champion sports bras and some UA ones too.

    ETA: The tata tamer has removable cups.

    I also use TaTa Tamers (let's just say I'm amply endowed), and I love that I can remove the cups to dry. My biggest complaint is that is it hard to find them in neutral colors. I recently was able to find one in white with light pink accents, but my others are turquoise and dark purple. But they work very well for me as a runner, so I know they would be good just for normal day-to-day activities in controlling "bounce."

    If you are planning on doing sink laundry while traveling, I can recommend [Variance](Amazon.com: Forever New Variance (50018, Granular): Health & Personal Care) as a great laundry detergent. It is designed for hand laundering fine undergarments, but we used it for our cycling jerseys as well, while on a recent overseas bike tour. The thing we liked about this product (besides getting our clothes clean) was the ease with which the suds rinsed out. (And now I use it at home, to hand wash that crazy expensive Wacoal bra)

    Tried the ex-officio undies for ladies. I didn't realize it was a regular fit or at-waist fit. Any recoms for low-waisted wicking ones? Thanks!

    Doesn't Ex Oficio also make bikini cut? Another alternative is the cheap, lightweight panties that Penney's carries...lycra, spandex combos.

    I second the recommendation of Icebreaker merino wool undies. Even after a few days wear in hot and humid environments (or under multiple layers in the winter while camping / cottaging) you'd never know they were used. Merino has amazing quick-dry, anti-microbial, and strength properties.
