I got a roasting in AIBU for suggesting that it wasn't appropriate in the summer. I'm happy to be in the old gimmer minority thinking that there are appropriate bras for each outfit. I get a clashing bra strap peeking out but backless/strapless without the appropriate underwear just baffles me.
No would look rubbishy peaking out the back. I think bra straps and stringy vest tops OK as long as sameish colour ok. Although summer just gone I wore a lovely crocheted top with a white bra beneath which was obvs visible. IMO (and I could be wrong) it looked nice! I am 37 but look a fair bit younger and fairly tall and size 8. I would however be mortified if told different and would never sin again
I never thought visible bra (e.g. bra straps showing alongside vest straps in summer) was an issue until I started seeing disapproving comments on MN. Looks a bit pants from the back though with low back dresses. If it makes any difference, I'm in my 20s so not quite an 'old gimmer' yet
