Wearing the right type of lingerie underneath your clothes can make or break your look. Bras that don’t fit right can cause unnecessary bulges, armpit fat (for the lack of better term), accidental peek-a-boos and the list goes on. Needless to say, lingerie is a vital part of dressing up, especially now that sheer numbers aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
Two of the most important things to consider in choosing what lingerie to wear underneath your sheer top or dress are the color and the shape of your bra. For example, it’s an eyesore to wear a white bra underneath a black top. Black on black is still the best choice. If you want to appear a little more conservative, consider the cup shape of your bra.
For my look, I chose to wear a t-shirt bra in black from Wacoal. It gives that much needed push-up effect (we all know how much I need that haha!) while still maintaining the right amount of coverage.
As you can see, there’s not a lot of skin being shown here. I’m wearing a boyfriend blazer and a pair of pants so I’m quite covered up. But because of the sheer top + lingerie, I was able to inject just a tad bit of sexiness in my androgynous get-up. My bra doing the peek-a-boo made the whole outfit a little less stiff and uptight. It’s masculine but at the same time feminine. I hope I’m making sense here. LOL. I opted for sexy stilettos to further add some much needed femininity.
To finish off my look, I chose to put my hair up to avoid looking bulky. My boyfriend blazer is quite heavy and boxy so putting my hair up in a bun to show more neck balances it off.
