Every time I go somewhere I see at least one girl wearing a light (white, cream coloured) top or dress with a dark (black, dark blue) bra under it.
I don't know why it bothers me so much but I get annoyed.
What do you think about light top + dark bra combo?
Do you wear 'em like that?

I think it looks nasty - something I would expect to see at a club or on the street corner..But I believe that most women/girls have no clue what they look like when they walk out the door. lol. There is less and less "class" anymore amongst people.. You will not find this look in the more discerning locations.

I hardly ever see it in public, but I definitely don't like it either. I guess its not enough thought put into dressing, hopefully its not on purpose!

It always look cheap and tarty to me. Maybe that's the point though as that look seems really popualr with many women.

It looks terrible... but look around.... wherever you live and you can see lots of people who look like they either got dressed without turning on a light or don't have friends to tell them to get changed.

I don't see this very often, but I think it's kind of the same when women wear a white bra that shows through a black or dark top.

If it is not intentional, it may have something to do with the lighting in people's homes being very different than public lighting or even the sun.

If it is intentional...well then, wtf.

If it is a huge contrast then I think it is intentional and tarty.

If it is a slight contrast then I think it is just the difference in lighting in that woman's home and the sunlight.

Tacky... but then I was brought up that underwear isn't to be seen. This includes bra straps, panties (esp thongs), and wearing a slip with unlined or thin dresses and skirts.

Hmmm, depends on the top. If it's a T-shirt, then I LOVE a dark bra under a light top. If it's a dress and complete on its own, then it looks tacky.

Side note, I get annoyed when women wears bras under dresses which aren't supposed to have bras under them, but I guess that's a different topic, eh?
