I noticed recently, that a European designer I like to follow has come out with a see-through wool fabric for winter. What's the point of that? Super-lightweight wool? It doesn't make any sense.
Yes. She is wearing a top so thin that her bra is completely visible under it. It's a bit skanky for me. I do have one "see through" sleeveless top that I love, but I wear a black camisole under it.

I see.
But that's a SLEEVELESS top, which one might expect to be made of a thinner material.
But the person in question wears a TURTLENECK, and that kinda gives an idea of something warm, and therefore should be made of a thicker material, as it used to be.
But now you have to buy thin piece of crap, and then to buy a SECOND piece to wear under it, in order to look decent.

I see how it works.

Corporations need make a bit more money I suppose))))
Apparently they are not making enough...

Better to have bra straps showing than not wearing (but needing) a bra and perhaps showing something else.

You know what, I'm old enough that I was taught that bra straps showing was tacky, but I'm kind of at the end of my rope. I've never for the life of me been able to buy a strapless that felt endurable -- ugh, those rubber strips, too -- (least of my problem) or fit or looked in any acceptable way (more of the problem). There are so many tops I love that would reveal a strap, so I'm just giving in and wearing either bikini tops or prettier bras with thin, colorful straps.

Also, I recently read a fashion blog where the full-figured blogger answered a question from a reader and said she often pushes her straps off her shoulders so they don't show in certain tops. I do that all the time! But I always felt like it was a cheap, tacky fix-it. I was just wondering how many other women did it?
