Take this for example:

Would you view it as tacky?

The girl talking? She's wearing a turtleneck. Yeah, you can tell she has a bra on. It's no secret women wear bras.

Of course it's tacky.


Sometimes, I guess you want to be tacky.

Depends on where you are going, and if it seems intentional, and you pick the right bra.

For work - that's not good.

If you are going out, or it is the weekend, and you pick something with contrasting or coordinating straps, it can work.

Yes, it's tacky.

I took this picture at a business event. It was for minority- and women-owned businesses in the engineering industry in New York City. Most people, male or female, were in business attire. Hundreds of people were in the room.

How does she expect to be taken seriously? I wouldn't run to the convenience store like this!

Tacky as hell.

I have always thought a bra showy is tacky.

These are two different things.

The top video, with the woman in the "Hello Sailor" sweater is one thing. Kind of tacky, depending on the time and place. It's a too-tight sweater with seams of a probably very pretty bra evidence beneath.

The clueless woman above, wearing an evening gown that shows a lot of shoulder, and has clear BRA STRAPS that she can't possibly think are hidden from view, is just Walmart tacky.

There are these pretty rhinestone straps you can buy, they look like flirty jewelry, that you can replace your fabric bra straps for an evening gown like that if you need to.

Young girls I guess are too cheap or don't want to spend money on the appropriate undergarments. Or maybe they think they look grown up or sexy that way?

Pretty much whatever you wear there is a bra for it - strapless, plunging neckline, backless - ANYTHING. If you don't notice how you look or don't care enough then yes, you look tacky - especially if it is anything beyond a casual everyday outfit.

It appears the girl in the 2nd photo has a jacket on the back of her chair. Maybe the room was hot and she took it off?
