    Default Sweatiest Cities in the United States

    It's not a pretty subject, but there is no denying it's something that we all do: sweat. Procter & Gamble released the results of its annual survey of the sweatiest cities in the United States. The criteria P&G used to rank the cities included the average height and weight for males and females in each city and the average high temperature in each city for the summer months of June, July, and August. The top 10 sweatiest cities were as follows: 10) Fort Myers, Florida; 9) Orlando, Florida; 8) Tampa, Florida; 7) Houston, Texas; 6) Corpus Christi, Texas; 5) Miami, Florida; 4) Tucson, Arizona; 3) Las Vegas, Nevada; 2) El Paso, Texas; and at number 1) Phoenix, Arizona.

    Sounds cliched, but Vegas has a DRY heat. I sweat so much more in Houston than I ever did in Vegas! Houston's inhabitants are also the nation's fattest so you know with all that chub they are sweating up a storm.

    I think Florida and Hawaii are bad.

    While it is a dry heat in Vegas, it's still really damn hot. It's really unpleasant to have to wear business clothing when it's between 115 and 120 degrees here.

    It's the humidity that makes it unbearably hot somewhere. Not only to you sweat like a pig, but it's a thick, stifling heat that makes it hard to breathe sometimes.

    It's like nothing you've ever experienced before

    Make sure to get lots of summer clothing and a windshield shade for your car. From May to November, I live in sleeveless tops.

    ^^That's what I thought about any city in Mississippi...it is humid here, too. Sometimes it seems like you can't breathe...I am waiting on some warm weather, though...it has been like 46 the past few days here. Rained ALL day yesterday and been cloudy today....ready for some sunshine!!

    Dry heat is way more tolerable than humidity. Plus your hair looks better!

    When I went to Phoenix, it was over 100 degrees but it felt like an 80 degree day in Florida because it was far less humid.

    It sucks when you're walking around South Beach, trying to look all cute, and you're sweating like a buffalo.

    ^ I think the funniest thing I saw in South Beach was the goth boy walking around in a popular area carrying an umbrella so he would keep his pale, oh so edgy skin

    I'm surprised he didn't have a pink tutu on...straight up goth sounds way too normal for South Florida!

    Nope, no tutu. He wasn't even wearing bright makeup. Simple straight up goth. My sister thought he was hot

    Gotta give him credit for adopting a trend that is completely impractical in the sweltering heat...But the umbrella sounds too funny!

    Hey, I used to carry a parasol around campus during the summer months! My skin is super fair, and I will turn bright pink in a matter of minutes.
