August Silk

Question about silk and satin... and how much they breathe...?

I have to buy a corset, to use for a dress I'm having made, and probably for Civil War reenacting too. I know the site I'm buying from, don't need help with that- unless you know a good qulaity place under $99.

But I have to wear this dress in August, and be outside for hours... it's a long-sleeved, 1870s styled day dress. The dress will be cotton, but... for my corset, I have a choice of cotton, or a silk and satin combo.

Will I die of heatstroke in silk or satin in like 100 degree August weather? How well does silk or stain breathe, and does it breathe as well as or better than cotton? I don't want to be sweating, or dying, when I'm already all tied up in a corset... I'd rather have the silk, but only if it breathes extremely well. Help please!!!

Silk and satin both breathe pretty bad, hence they are not very much not summer clothes. Cotton would be the best because it is a very breathable fabric. For fashion reasons, the silk and satin would be better, but if you want to be comfortable and smell okay, go with the cotton.
