Good choice on the pass up. I think they look a little trashy like kelly bundy might stock her closet with them. The cache halter look also posted is a lot more flattering and classy without being stuffy.

Red Tie Dye Stretch Cami Top < Sexy Tops | Flirt Catalog

Black Shirred Strapless Zip Front Corset with Stone Trim < Sexy Tops | Flirt Catalog

(I would wear this with jeans, not shorts)

White Classic Halter Top < Sexy Tops | Flirt Catalog
(again, I'd wear this with jeans, not shorts)
I like the last one most. Best look IMO would be with a skirt and some sexy heels. I love skirts on women as opposed to shorts/jeans/trousers.
Just one man's opinion.

That looks very cool! I love it...perfect for wearing with jeans if I'm going out, or perhaps with shorts for during the day.

With regard to the four different tops I posted in my first post: I know I said that I wasn't going to order any of them after all, but this past weekend I changed my mind, at least on one of the tops. I decided to get the fourth one- the white classic halter top. I think this would be a great look for the summer, since it get scorching hot here. The other 3 tops...looking back at them, I'm not liking them as much as I did originally. And looking back at the corset I posted the link to- it DOES seem like it's cheaply-made and not as nice as some of the other corsets posted here.

Call me crazy, but what the heck is the point of wearing the white halter top if you're going to wear it with jeans? Won't you be sweating your arse off in that heat then?

You're crazy

Haha...just kidding.

Seriously...I like the look of the halter paired with jeans. I've never really liked wearing shorts quite as much, but I'm so used to wearing jeans that I don't get hot wearing them. Also, I have a rule that I tend to follow...don't show off too much skin at once. If I'm planning on wearing shorts or a skirt that show off my legs, I"ll wear a regular-length shirt. If I'm wearing a shirt that shows off my arms and/or midriff, I"ll wear pants.

That's nothing more than a bra-top. Hopefully you will be wearing it to the beach.

Actually, those tops are quite popular here during the summer. While it would be a good look for the beach, it's something I could definitely see myself wearing while going out for cocktails at night at an upscale lounge, or for meeting up with the girls for lunch at our favorite outdoor bistro. It seems like a versatile top.

Of course, I wouldn't just wear it ANYWHERE. I wouldn't wear it to my son's school functions or when I'm having dinner with the family, for instance.

Well you'll certainly get a lot of looks if you wear that to an upscale lounge or bistro!
It looks like a top for the beach or boardwalk only to me.
