When the temperature on the thermometer rises, and the sunny days come, summer dresses and tops with thin straps or strapless become a favourite item of clothing. However that raises the eternal question – to wear or not to wear a bra underneath those clothes?
To harmonize the summer light and, often very open, summer clothes with underwear sometimes is not an easy task. Not wearing a bra may be inappropriate; a wrong selection of bra straps, silicon straps, or those that are cut in the skin can be a fashion mistake.
Firstly, wearing clothes without a bra is not for everyone. Rihanna and Naomi are just some of the stars who can pull that look off and recently, we had the opportunity to see how to walk in public without a bra. It is much easier to find clothing underneath which is not necessary to wear a bra for ladies with smaller breast then for those that have larger breasts.
Sexy lingerie and bras make our cleavage look right by increasing it, shaping it, and making them look ‘polite’ and desirable.
If you want to shine this summer in shirts and dresses with slits, plunging necklines and backless, we bring you the basic rules of how to wear clothes without a bra and without crossing the boundary of good taste and fashion etiquette.
1. Never go to work without a bra even when it is a ‘relaxed Friday’ or very hot outside. Never, under any circumstance as it is simply inappropriate and tasteless. This rule should be adhered to rigidly, so leave daring fashion combinations for leisure.
2. Avoid silk and other breathable fabrics as they may be too transparent for that part of the body. These fabrics underline what lies beneath and that could prove to be much more than planned and could attract unwanted attention. Beneath a silk dress it is best to wear smooth underwear with sutures or bodice
3. Be careful when wearing low-cut dresses or shirts, as you may expose more then you like to those around you if you bend over.
4 If you wear a C or D, cup size, avoid shirts or strapless dresses as such cuts could squeeze the breasts too much and thus making them bland or ‘merge’.
5. If you have larger breasts a halter neck top or dress will suit you the best. Tightly tied around the neck and the “girls” will look fantastic while at the same time have the needed support.
6. An ideal dress cut to wear without a bra is a dress cut below the breast, otherwise called ‘empire’ cut that provides the necessary support.
7. Wear self-adhesive silicone nipple covers to avoid inkling colour and nipple hardness through a dress or shirt.
Hold down to the one universal rule: if you’re just a little bit unsure whether it is appropriate or not to wear bra, go back and change it.
