Option 1 nude. Looks like flesh through t
Option 2 black (tbshirt is gunmetal ) looks like a black bra.

(It's not TOO. Sheer)

Nude deffo.....I always wear a nude vest too but I'm old!

Probably anything but white. I've got a similar tshirt but no nude bra. I've got a pale lilac one which is fine under it.

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:23:05

But nude looks like FLESH

cahu Mon 06-May-13 21:24:18

Yes .... But it isn't!

SorrelForbes Mon 06-May-13 21:24:33

Nude or maybe pale grey (if you could find one in that colour)

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:25:07

Will it look like fake tit?!!
I don't need to give them any more wank back ammo tbh

Nude bras look like flesh under some white/ivory tops too but it looks fine to me.

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:25:25

You know what men are like. The merest hint.

Def nude, but make sure it's not a t-shirt type bra that you can see the top line of. All mine are visible top ones. -you've reminded me to seek out one that comes high up so invisible lines...

The Cleo Juna in nude is good for wearing under sheer tops.

YoniOno Mon 06-May-13 21:41:24

Lovely bra Sorrel but my pore little 30Cs aren't allowed it sad

A very chic French lady told me she and her Parisian friends ALWAYS wore nude under everything. I have stuck with nude ever since. It goes with everything.

Gawd knows why summer brings out a rash of English women in see through linen skirts and trousers wearing white knickers!

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:45:54

I love nude. Looks like a prosthesis but I reach for it every time

MissBeehivingUnderTheMistletoe Mon 06-May-13 21:46:31

Oh nude fo' shure.

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:47:08

So nude shows through then? Not black hinted at. Met shirt dark great linen. H and m

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:47:33

T shirt. Not met. Frigging phone

AnyFucker Mon 06-May-13 21:49:46

Why are you wearing sheer clothes for work ? confused

I read somewhere (could be MN) that red bras are the colour to wear under sheer

My best advice though is to wear clothes that are professional and stop worrying about "men and their wank banks"

MrsCampbellBlack Mon 06-May-13 21:51:50

If there is any room for anyone to wonder if you are wearing a bra or not then you jolly well need a cami/vest underneath it.

God, its not even the end of may yet.

JamesJazz Mon 06-May-13 21:51:52

Wear a nude vest top! And then whatever colour bra you fancy.

JamesJazz Mon 06-May-13 21:52:52

Primark do a very serviceable nude spaghetti strap top for around £1.50 or so. No excuses.

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:53:47

I didn't realise it was sheer until I tried on just now.

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:54:07

But nude shows through. That's my point.

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 21:54:38

Well not totally. But as much as with a white shirt

AnyFucker Mon 06-May-13 21:56:30

Hmm, yes.

Strangely, you have already considered "men" and their "wank banks"

Vest top and sheer blouse is the way to go, or save it for a more appropriate setting

When you pick up a blouse in the shop, it is quite "clear" it is sheer. Give over, love.
