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

(It's not TOO. Sheer)

Plaited wink

Went braless ? wink

Well. I gave up in the end.

Ah that makes sense Married. I have a red bra which is ok under a (fairly thick) white t-shirt. We can surmise, therefore, that I have bright red skin grin.

Red bra under white top. Red bra clearly visible.

I bought a couple of peach/coral silky bus bras and they are fine

Stop squabbling you two! <attempts to be stern>

The red/nude bra thing is dependent on your skin. The trick is to find a bra that is as dark or slightly darker than your skin TONE. Many so called nude bras are too pale which is why they show through. For me, with my olive/Asian skin, the best colour is purple, french navy or red. I've found some of the darker old fashioned nude tones are ok but not my thing.

For dark skinned women, black is usually best.

Current fashion has quite a few coral and dark pink bras which are great on a Caucasian skin with a bit of a tan.

We used to wear red bras under our white shirts at school and you could definitely see it was a red bra.

Nehru Tue 07-May-13 06:22:02

Lol thanks. It's an amazing thing.
If I had such a thing I'd try it out. smile

SorrelForbes Mon 06-May-13 23:35:05

I won't. It'll be our little secret wink.

AnyFucker Mon 06-May-13 22:58:41

AnyFucker Mon 06-May-13 22:57:29

SorrelForbes Mon 06-May-13 22:54:50

AnyFucker Mon 06-May-13 22:33:51

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 22:10:27

I don't have one. Black nude or wgite

YoniOno Mon 06-May-13 22:08:20

Lol at MNers across the land donning red bras tomorrow grin

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 22:07:58

It just CAN'T!! I'm incredulous

SorrelForbes Mon 06-May-13 22:07:20

AFAIK a red bra works under a white too but it might work under other colours too.

YoniOno Mon 06-May-13 22:05:17

I wore a sleeveless pinky coloured polyester silky top the other day and had a similar dilemma, went inexplicably for a lilac bra and a white cami. Photos on FB show an array of straps poking out, looks totally crap. A visible nude bra would actually have looked more sophisticated sad

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 22:01:55

Lol. Go and say to postman. "Can you see my bra?!!"

Presume red only works under black or grey

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 22:01:22

Leroy? Lol. Survey

Nehru Mon 06-May-13 22:01:05

Yes. Will try on again in natural light to leroy. Have a jacket anyway..
