Clear Bra Straps Are a No-No

Clear bra straps are so 90's. I didn't think anyone still wore them, but this weekend proved me wrong. I saw a handful of offenses. Tube tops with clear bra straps... shudder.

Public service announcement. Clear bra straps are in fact visible, and they look worse than a regular bra strap would. Invest in a good strapless that fits well. And if you insist on sharing a glimpse of your bra, at least pick one that looks like cami-like straps.

Truer words were never spoken. A much-needed PSA.

As much as I hate the clear bra straps -- I have a bigger problem with NO BRA. I know some women think their boobs are small and cute and can fly free, but 99% of the time it's less fashion statement, more fashion insult. Particularly in glaring sunshine when tops become see-through. Blehh.

yeah, no bra can be unsightly as well.

i forgot to mention in the post, but another clear bra straps con is that they look disgusting when it's hot and sweaty out.

I disagree on the grounds that my breasts are DD. Sure, its easy to say "Oh, that's so tacky omg" when you're a C cup, but when you have large breasts, NO strapless bra will fit you. I am a 36 DD, and have tried every sinze imaginable in strapless bras - to no avail.

Some people have no choice but to wear clear straps. Men don't notice them anyway, and isn't that who we are trying to impress?

I am a 36DD (actually between a DD and E). I have to wear a clear stap with a specific top that has open shoulders with beading detail. A regular bra or cami with strapless bra under would ruin the effect of the tops design. Since the top is sheer (which is in fashion at the moment) my only option is a convertible cami with strapless bra under and clear straps. To make more "invisble" I suggest powder to make "matt" and not so shiny. Since you are Asian and probably have a AAA cup. You wouldn't understand. But you "real" ladies out there, keep wearing support that works for you and make your total look work!
