This style vest suits me best but I have visible straps.
Can I get away with it?

SupermanStoleMyPants Fri 12-Aug-16 10:33:45

I do every day...never even thought about it...

As long as my boobs don't flap out while I'm chasing the kids I'm happy.

Yes smile

Looks fine! I always have visible straps smile

It does suit you. You look great. I don't like visible bra straps but they are at least in line with the top straps.

ElodieS Fri 12-Aug-16 10:35:48

Of course! It's fine!

I'd avoid visible bra straps with a fancy dress for a wedding or something, but if the top is strappy itself you're always going to be able to see them unless you wear a strapless bra. It looks fine.

That looks fine.
But you need to take better care of your decolletage smile

Thanks.
I pondered over saying how old I am but it shouldn't matter, should it?

What's up with my decola-whatnot AF?

I read in magazine bra straps are OK. Your straps are a lovely colour.

AnyFucker Fri 12-Aug-16 10:42:31

Sun damage. It's looking a bit patchy.

like mine

Get the high factor suncream on your upper chest. It'll start to fold up sooner than it should if you don't <stern>

Wow, you have an amazing figure!

I'm going to go against the grain though, and say that the top would look immeasurably better without the visible bra straps.

I suspect you would look great in anything, though. smile

I run a lot AF when I'm not bloody injured and am bad at protecting myself. I do try and remember but fear it may be a bit like shutting the stable door after the horse had pissed off.

I second the comment about your amazing figure! looks down dejectedly at Buddha belly

You do look great. Top looks fine. I show straps too but only if they are colourful/pretty - ie not the bra with slightly wash faded straps at the back of the drawer!
Agree ladies protect your decollete - thin skin easily damaged. I got caught out at a wedding in off the shoulder bridesmaid dress. Couldn't hide anywhere & got burnt. Now have permanently reddened skin😥

You look great!

The top may well look better without visible bra straps (everything does, IMO) but then you are into strapless contraptions that are OK for a formal occasion, but not practical or comfortable for every day. And that's a relaxed, every day, chase the kids top, right? So who cares about the nuances; comfort and practicality count.

I only wince when you see bra straps that are cutting into flesh, leaving a red bulge, wildly out of line with the top, black with a pale top etc.

And even then if the wearer is happy, so be i.

From this angle, it looks like you could get away with not wearing a bra, if avoiding visible bra straps is that important to you. Though I admit I wouldn't wear that kind of top without anything under it; too risky.

But I really don't care about visible bra straps. People around me all have them. It is the logical consequence of wearing a top with straps and a bra. No problem, really.

SonicSpotlight Fri 12-Aug-16 11:02:11

You could try sticking a bottle of factor 50 in one of your running shoes as a reminder? I use it (I keep it by the hall mirror) and I can't see any visible benefit. The only thing that keeps me slathering it on is the fear that I might look even worse if I don't.

ZippyNeedsFeeding Fri 12-Aug-16 11:03:10

You look fantastic. Aren't there vest tops with built-in bra thingies? I make my own clothes and just add one if I need to, but I'm sure I've seen this in bought clothes too. That said, I think your straps look fine.

brastraps Fri 12-Aug-16 11:03:54

I have micro norks, the bra is a t.shirt one so gives me a bit of shape and covers my nips. Happy to go bra less otherwise. Maybe I'll see what the MN jury thinks of bra less! Wait a mo...

gonzo155 Fri 12-Aug-16 11:04:46

No issue. I used to stress about it but then decided it was not worth it. Just wear what you're happy in.

Binkermum29 Fri 12-Aug-16 11:05:31

The only straps which are banned - except I see them all the time - are the grubby shade of grey which used to be white.

brastraps Fri 12-Aug-16 11:06:33

I'm think no to nips!!!

ThumbWitchesAbroad Fri 12-Aug-16 11:13:54

I wish I looked so good in the summer here! I don't. But it doesn't stop me wearing vests like that, it gets too hot not to! All my bras are black though, so I have no compunction in letting the straps show.

Bomb Fri 12-Aug-16 11:36:12

I hope it's ok because I do the same. I don't like to show the back strap though so I won't wear low back tops.

My DDs do though and I think it looks fine on them .

Alliswellihope43 Fri 12-Aug-16 11:38:26

Do it!
I wear strapless because I look better with no bra straps (I feel I looks but chubby)
But who cares, oh no o can see the support system that you choose to wear on your God given mamory glands you didn't actually choose to have
Wear a bra, don't wear a bra, hide it, show it, do whatever makes you comfortable
