But peeking undergarments can fashionably work if worn subtly with style. At the right moment (we would only suggest a peeking undergarment on a night out, never to work or class) they can add an extra touch to an outfit. Underwear is strongly discouraged from appearing in public. And wearing an item alone, like your wire bra, with a skirt out will only invite the wrong kind of attention. It’s important to note that undergarments are meant to stay exactly as their name would imply–under your garment.
There are ways to make a peeking bra work and to edge up a subtle sexy yet classy demeanor. Under a slouchy, loose tank top, rock a bandeau bra. These strapless pieces often come in different colors and can add a funky touch to your outfit. Sometimes well-designed bandeau can be worn with Harlem pants or cropped pants for a cute, tasteful outfit.
For a classier appearance, slip on a fancier bra with a sheer top. The sheerness of the top is key, because too see through appears trampy, whereas slightly sheer adds elegance. Be aware of the color. Don’t wear a hot pink bra under a sheer white top. It sends off a less than classier vibe. Also be mindful of what material (eg. lace) shows through.
Make sure your bra matches with your outfit and doesn’t stick out like an embarrassing fashion mistake. Be tasteful in how much undergarment shows. Remember, you need to remain semi-covered–don’t show it all off! But make sure there is something up under there…otherwise…wardrobe malfunctions are bound to occur…
