Showing Off Bra?

The other day while out with a couple of girl friends, we saw a woman in a crisp white shirt tied at the waist with part of her bra shown through. So she opens one or two extra buttons to allow her lacy bra to peek through. In the past, I have also seen gals wearing low cut tank or spaghetti strap tops with the intention of showing off their colorful bra straps and even the top part of a lacy bra. I adore beautiful lingerie but I think the color of my underwear is for me to know only. Oh and don't even get me started on gals who would wear super low cut jeans to show off their panties. Am I just too old fashion? So savvy readers, do you think showing off one's lingerie in public is savvy or sloppy?

  1. I think it's usually pretty tacky. There might be times when showing a pretty lace camisole is perfect, but not so much a bra...

  2. I think your lingerie should stay underneath. This is very "Sexy & The City"...But some trends should stay on tv. If someone wants to show off their sexy attire, they should keep it in the comforts of their home. Don't subject others to see. {That's my thought}

  3. sorry but its just trashy. i know there are times where there are slips but intentionally showing off "under" garments is really unladylike. to each is own but something like that is definitely not my cup of tea.

    oh and i agree the birkin can definitely get heavy..i just use the shoulder strap and wear it like a messenger bag.

  4. I'm totally with you SG. I hate how it looks even to show the bra straps! absolutely cheap!

  5. I think it can be done discreetly and tastefully. However, I don't like it when some people show off their underwear on purpose and it's just not really a classy thing to do.

  6. i am with YOU on this issue! i think it is laaaaaaaaaaaaaame when you see a woman's lingerie. that is for home. that is private. it is tacky to show off. and seeing the g-string or underwear is much worse than the bra, but both are tacky tacky TACKY!!!

    and no beautiful gray hair for you for a long time. i don't think i would even try it until i turn 60 or so -- if i live that long. :)

  7. I've had the upper lacey parts of my bra peek out - I love that bit, especially with a scoop or squareneck top. But not the cleavagey bit, that's just asking for trouble.

    I think showing off underwear is just trashy. No lady would do that.

  12. Not my style (if it is even a style). Even when I wear tanks, I usually wear strapless underneath so the straps will not show.

  13. i think i'm with you. an unintentional peek of the bra is one thing, unbuttoning one too many buttons is another. kind of tacky.

  14. Yeah this is going to be a debate but I see your views. It's cute depending on how much exposure and how the outfit is put together. It is never okay to look trashy though!

    Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving some love by the way!=]

  17. I love this bra! I am now not afraid to wear strapless dresses or shirts! I love it so much I think I am going to buy another in black. It makes my boobs look smaller and I feel secure. I have never worn a strapless bra I actually liked and that felt comfortable. O, and it seems to be holding up very well. It's a heavy duty bra.
