In brief: Many things.
If your bra is new, you could be allergic to the material, or to chemicals that are sometimes applied to new clothes.
If you're using a new soap, or clothes detergent, or fabric softener, or applying a new cologne, it could be any of those. If none of those possibilities fit, let a dermatologist examine you - you may have a subtle rash that will lead to the answer.

If you have been sweating more, you may have developed a skin fungal infection. If the itch has any redness or flakiness, esp. if mostly in creases of skin, try over the counter (OTC) anti fungal cream like miconazole.
