SheFinds Rant: Visible Bra Straps -- Hot or Not?

July 18, 2007 by SheFindsErin

The Topic: Visible bra straps under tank tops and halters.

The Debate: Just about everyone can agree that the peek-a-boo thong look went the way of Britney’s hair, so it shouldn’t be that difficult for us all to get on the same page about bra straps showing underneath some of summer’s cutest tanks and halters. Now, I know there are tons of excuses: “bras are too expensive to buy a style for every top.” “I’m too busty to go strapless and shouldn’t have to sacrifice wearing tanks.” “At least my bra is clean and cute.” But come on, some of you aren’t even trying! There’s a reason it’s called underwear, ladies: it’s supposed to stay under your clothing.

The Verdict: I don’t care how cute your bra is. I don’t care if it matches your halter and you think it makes a cute accessory. I don’t care if your bra’s brand spankin’ new and you want the world to know. For every one person who manages to pull this look off, there are a thousand others who ruin perfectly good outfits, making them look sloppy and cheap by giving the world a view of their dirty bra straps.

I say, if you’re a fan of summer’s sleeveless and backless gear, invest in a good convertible bra, like this Le Mystere L’image Sculptural Strapless Push-up Bra. At the very least, consider the tips given in our guide to Wardrobe Malfunctions.

What do you say? Are visible bra straps icky or inevitable in a fashion world that dares to bare? Let us know in the comment section below (and if you have any tips on how to make this look work, I’d love to know.)
