Sheer Summer Tops, what Bra Colours?

(33 Posts)

I assume a black bra is slutty, but a white one generally prints through more.

My DP doesn't want to see me in black.

Does it actually matter?

Nude colour is your friend. I have a fab strapless one from Bravissimo. Invisible under sheer tops.

I wear nude or peach/pale pink coloured bra's under white or cream tops

burnishedsilver Sat 08-Aug-15 22:24:42

I wear a vest or cami under sheer tops.

I tend to wear camisoles under sheer tops as I don't like having my bra on show.

Nude. If nice it cream top.

Black otherwise.
Tell your h to piss off

Bluecheese22 Sat 08-Aug-15 23:14:38

Nude under anything sheer.

Your DP what?

valerie123 Sat 08-Aug-15 23:37:43

He doesn't like me wearing anything black, deep plunge style, lacy or with chicken fillets.

Bin the controlling Dp, wear whatever fucking bra you like

valerie123 Sun 09-Aug-15 00:19:49

It's not just him, I just don't want to be too tarty or too frumpy, if that's possible.

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sun 09-Aug-15 08:33:14

Black isn't tarty. Are you part of. Weird religious cult

Black bras aren't tarty, honestly

mrsdavidbowie Sun 09-Aug-15 08:57:05

Good grief. You're wearing a sheer top but don't want to be tarty

mrsdavidbowie Sun 09-Aug-15 09:22:18

I'm not implying wearing a sheer top is tarty BTW
I wear them.

burnishedsilver Sun 09-Aug-15 10:30:23

The easiest way to avoid tarty is to wear whatever colour bra you like but don't have it on display. A sheer top without a cami is not an easy look to pull off.

MrsMummyPig Sun 09-Aug-15 10:49:38

Most of the bras I own are black as I have a lot of dark clothes.
I am the least tarty person ever, in fact I look alot like my namesake.
If daddy pig said he didn't like black bras i would compromise, wouldn't make him wear them but I still would if I wanted too. grin

MaryBerrysEyelashes Sun 09-Aug-15 12:52:36

Talking about your h as daddy pig is gross

Changebagsandgladrags Sun 09-Aug-15 13:22:45

FFS her name is bloody fucking Mummy Pig. So of course he's Daddy Pig.

Your dp sounds like a twat!

"daddy pig do you like my bra"


If you want to avoid your bra showing through and avoid looking tarty, wear a cami or vest top underneath rather than just a bra!

valerie123 Mon 10-Aug-15 19:58:50

If it's really hot, I basically want to wear just a very light and airy top, which will inevitably be quite sheer.

Any bra underneath is sweaty enough, but a cami or vest as well? Plus another set of straps to endure?
