Peek-a-boo Bra Straps: Thumbs up or down?

Tuesday, July 31, 2012
What's your opinion on visible bra straps? The other day while waiting for a friend in a cafe I overheard a couple of guys complemeting a girl's outfit. They found the look attractive and said that even though the girl wore shorts and a loose top, the peek-a-boo bra strap element made the whole look sexy in a classy way. Then last night I read in an article that visible bra straps are no longer considered a fashion faux pas, they are actually a flirty fashion statement. Ha, who would have thought? To be honest, I find it sassy and cute, if done well. How about you? xo

P.S: Also, my favourite style tweak and the beautiful open-back trend.
P.P.S: Plus a few more sassy trends.

I was going to say the same thing...it all depends on the outfit. It can border tasteless and sexy.

I am a fan of the shoulder strap but the others just are a little too showy for me. It is too teenagery for my age :)

These models can definitely pull it off but I've seen some people on the street who might need a lesson or two on pulling this look off!

Ann, totally. It's a tricky one.

Amy, I really love the first take on it. Not too showy and totally sweet.

i would say...thumbs down...looks a little too sloppy for my taste! but some people can pull it off!

Not horrible, but definitely not a preferred look for me. I will give a non-judgemental thumbs down.

I agree. I think it depends on the bra. Thumbs up if its nice and fits the overall outfit; thumbs down if it´s washed out or not neat.

I actually hadn't thought about it until you said something but I have lots of beautiful outfits saved and a lot of them have this in them! I really like it too. I think it's very chic and elegant. It's unexpected.

This is funny. I spent last week with my boyfriend in Tenerife and one day we were walking along the boardwalk talking about what people were wearing. This is one thing I pointed out that really annoys me....!

It has to be obviously intentional. If it looks like you just didn't pay attention, it can look kind of tacky. I feel like I'm constantly pulling my shirts back up on my shoulders to prevent this, but maybe I should just embrace it.

I gave up trying to hide mine a long time ago! But I did grow up in the Madonna, like a virgin, era! I have no problem with it at all.

the straps look ok ...even kind of sexy...but the back closure looks terrible!

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally agree, Martie!

Diana Mieczan said...

I'm like most people. I gave up on trying to hide my straps a long time ago. I never thought of it as ugly thou. The one thing I don't like is the back closure. If your going to do that one, you should have a front closing bra that way the entire back piece is lacy and beautiful. If your going to show the back off, flaunt it!
