Lingerie Faux Pas for Rookies
Ever look around in a room filled with women and judge them based completely on what they’re wearing or not wearing? I know we’re not supposed to admit these things out loud but it happens, and we are all totally guilty of doing this. So what are some common lingerie faux pas that should be avoided at all costs?
1. The black bra under the tight white dress
Trust me, no matter how well disguised you think that black bra is under your white dress we can see it, especially when someone takes a photo of you with a flash. The reverse scenario of having a white bra under a black dress also applies here. When in doubt, always opt for a nude bra.
2. Granny panties under your yoga pants
3. Bra straps showing on a halter top or racer-back tank
Bras that have wider set straps are a no-no under halter tops and racer-back tanks. Because of the cut of these styles, chances are that you will be able to see the straps peak out from the front and back. This can look really unflattering and take away from the sexy top you’re supposed to be wearing. Look for a bra that has a crisscross back or a strapless for the halter.
4. Underboob and sideboob gone terribly wrong
This one is a little tricky, because sometimes underboob and sideboob can be sexy, namely with a work-out top or a swimsuit. If you’re wearing a bra that is too small for you, chances are you’re going to be really uncomfortable and if you even dare to wear a tight crop top or a shirt with large underarm holes, it may look like you have four, not two boobs.
5. Shapewear you can see
Shapewear that’s used for tightening up your tummy and sucking everything in so you don’t have to is pointless if it’s going to show. Sometimes shapewear digs into different parts of your torso, thus making it visible under certain tight-fitted dresses. When choosing shapewear, you want to make sure that you get the correct size and look for something with smooth lines.
6. No bra at all. In public
If you have large boobs, other people can definitely tell if you’re not wearing a bra. They’ll be hangin’ and swingin’ free. If you have small breasts, this will make you look even more flat-chested, so at least put on a t-shirt bra before you step out.
