What do you wear under sheer or open tops like my VKOO tee? Today, I’m wearing this simple bra by Wacoal, which is enough support for me and gives enough coverage, but other times I wear a cami, or a tube top. I wouldn’t ever wear a nude bra under this top, or a bra that looks like a bra, if that makes sense. I chose this bra because it has full coverage (I don’t want to show cleavage AND skin) and sort of looks like a cropped tank instead of a bra.
With other slightly sheer tops that aren’t necessarily open like this VKOO tee, I’ll wear a black bra (or some other contrasting color), or nude if I feel like being more “discreet.” But lately, I’m kind of liking the look of a black bra under a sheer top, as long as it’s tasteful. Again, I wouldn’t show a lot of cleavage in that case. Like I have a lot to show…
I understand for you more well-endowed ladies, these ideas wouldn’t work at all though, so I wonder what do you wear under sheer tops? Or do you wear them at all?
I have double DD’s so this just wouldn’t work – i usually wear a tank top.
Ditto Rachel. I have always avoided sheer tops because of the difficulties of figuring out what to wear underneath (I’m not modest – no problems with a nude beach – but it’s more difficult for me to figure out “appropriate” with some types of clothing :-))
I’m jealous that you can even wear a bra under this sheer top and totally get away with it. The grass is always greener and all that jazz. 🙂
I’m one of those well-endowed ladies and just can’t do a cute bra under a sheer top so I usually avoid buying them. Of the sheer tops that I do have in my closet, I just put on a cami.
I am a 34 DD and I wear a lace tank top. Target and now Uniqlo makes great lace edge tanks. I am not a big fan of most sheer tops but a huge fan of eyelet lace
I think you look fantastic in this sexy outfit and really, would you have dared wear it like this before you lost the weight and got in such great shape? I’m not well-endowed by any stretch of the word, but I wouldn’t wear it this way because I wouldn’t DARE take the chance that someone might catch a glimpse of my stomach, let alone my boobs!
The outfit looks great … Have y ou considered a helmut Lang top? It’s what I’d wear if I had ever liked my midsection enough to go sheer!

I am generally not the type of woman to wear sheer tops or overtly sexy dresses. However, I have been changing my wardrobe one step at a time since the last 2 months. I must say that you are looking really beautiful in that dress. I can see you have clearly lost weight. So congratulations on that.
To answer your question, I am not that well-endowed and I am certainly going to try something like this with a similar type of black bra. Thanks for encouraging me!! 😀
thanks lilian! try it!!!
yes! i love those HL bra tops, i need to find one on sale….
