In this case, NOT underwear IMO.

Today at work I am wearing a V neck sweater with a camisole (tank style) underneath to keep my cleavage from showing. I am not walking around showing my underwear.

This would be more in line with "underwear" style camisole:

Not a knit style as the OP posted.

Had she said she wore a lingerie style cami, sure. That is way too sext for a job interview!
In this post, you keep saying that you wore a cami UNDER other clothing, not as a blouse. So you are proving our point.....

This should not have been worn as a top to a job interview.

Yes. I never said it was okay to wear only as a top for an interview. I was just saying that I disagree it is "underwear"

Call me a pig, but if I see a woman like that, I'm STARING. If she doesn't like it, she can cover up. I think that reality is why many workplaces other than (say) Hooter's have dress codes, and that Hooter's and such don't have them is because men staring isn't just a reality, it's the very idea. But at any other workplace, men aren't supposed to be sexually harassing women, totally understandable, but at the same time you can't wear an outfit like that and then complain. An outfit like that is just screaming "look at how hot I am."

I completely understand that the days of saying a woman was raped for how she dressed was asking for it are over, and well they should be, no woman asks to be RAPED I don't care how she's dressed or how much she's advertising. However, staring is not rape. Men are visual, they like attractive women, an outfit like that is all but "advertising." It's fine at the club or when you're out on the town, but not at work around men who are trying to work.

If you didn't want to hear opinions of whether or not it was appropriate, you shouldn't have come here and asked for them.

Yeah, this is something I would wear to go to bed in during the warmer months.

One note about panty hose, wear them, or at least look professional. , and no flip flops for job interviews.

Don't do it. Even if you are under age 30, and attractive. Even if you live in Miami.

Last interview I had was on the telephone, even then, I dressed for it. That may sound like over kill, but I think it made a difference in my thought process.

Funny enough i wore this exact cami to a job interview today in black......but i wore it under my shirt I first tried it just with the jacket and i found it too "sexy" for a job int. & not professional enough so I wore it under my shirt because i always have issues with shirts fitting on my chest area so with the cami under the shirt, no snooping allowed

It's called manners. For someone who is constantly going on about how his kids know appropriate behavior and know well to fear a good old fashioned paddling if they slip up, I find it interesting you don't hold yourself to that same standard.
