Is it Bad When Your Bra Strap Shows?

My friend Jenn and Leila don't mind if their bra straps show. In fact, they sometimes like it when it shows if it's a colorful bra -- something that becomes part of the outfit.

They both sometimes wear a bathing suit top instead if a top isn't bra-friendly. It doesn't even have to be same color.

And here I am worried about matching my bra straps to my clothes.

This copper bra from American Apparel would look great peeking out of some tops.

Of course, if you don't like the look, you can always invest in those gadgets that help you hide your bra straps.

What do you think of showing off your bra (or bikini) straps? Trashy or cool?

Gotta go with trashy.  I've tried to do it...there are some shirts where I almost can't help it, but I always end up changing.  I just don't like the look of it.

I wouldn't do it on purpose, but there are shirts where it's expected, and as long as it's obvious the girl's not TRYING to show off the bra (like a red racerback bra under a white non-racerback tank top), then I don't mind.  It's summer, so mine are showing a bunch too.  Strapless bras NEVER fit me right, so I'll wear a white tank top with a white bra, etc.

When I wear tank tops it does happen. I usaully wear black bras so I really don't care if they show! I can't prevent it really.

You can always go with decorative bra straps on a strapless bra. Try for interchangeable jewelry, beaded, rhinestone and decorative fabric straps.

Sure if done right. But PLEASE dont do those plastic clear straps. You ARENT fooling anyone. If you are gonna wear a bra...wear it.
