I can't wear a strapless. I call my bras a harness lol. As another poster pointed out, I'll try to buy tanks with wider straps. I tend not to wear tank tops in public, though. I'm all boob so I look a mutant, imo.

I always thought a strapless bra was very uncomfortable so I couldn't imagine wearing one except for special occassions. I definitely can't get away with wearing no bra at all. I am a size 32A or 34A (I might could pass as a AA) so if I don't wear a bra I look completely flat chested. Not to mention my you-know-whats poke through, which I've always found very distasteful when I can see them poke through someone's shirt (and that goes for women AND men).
Well considering I have a 38DDD bust, a bra is pretty much a given. Normally, I won't wear tank tops in public because the bra strap generally does show and it looks tacky IMHO.

I would say for a small busted lady that going braless should not be a problem. You can buy things to put over your nipples if don't like them poking out. Or just put some surgical tape over them.

Personally, I think nipples are nice. Both men and women's.

I just ordered this shirt for yoga but it might be a good one instead of a true tank. It looks like you can wear a bra. I will let you know when I get it.

Yeah, I don't have a problem with them either, as long as they're not obnoxiously large.
These days, we've gotten way overly paranoid about someone seeing the slightest outline of a clothed nipple. I noticed last time I was at Target that many bras now have an extra layer of fabric over the nipple area, so that your nipples don't show through your bra and your shirt.

I mean, come on. Nipples aren't the antichrist.
People are just silly sometimes.

Good grief are nipples offensive? Ever notice that breast cancer increased about the time they introduced bras. It is my understanding that the tightness keeps the different elements from draining off trapping them - it interferes with the natural function of the body. I am thinking that I also heard that tight pants do the same sort of thing to men. What ever happened to comfort and health? Don't want to see my nipples? Look away.

I actually think nipples are nice What I don't like is when tank tops are associated with muffin tops and hanging flesh all over the place. That is just my opinion though and I do believe what these threads are for

I bought some tank tops at Kohl's that have a bra built into them. They are really comfortable and they look nice.

No, I wear the kind that has the built in cups in them already. So, there's no fooling around with a bra and such. I have a few of them.

I have one that doesn't, but I wear a matching colored bikini top with it. It looks really cute. Men like it!

I have a few of these types of tank tops as well. They're way more comfortable than buying a separate tank top and bra.

As a 38D, the built-in shelf bras don't cut it, and the majority of strapless bras either don't come in D-cup without going to a specialty store and paying more than I'm willing to, and/or are not particularly supportive when they can be found. I generally wear tanks that have wide enough straps to conceal bra straps.

I just realized today while bra shopping that I'm now a 38D...I've been a 38C for the past couple of years, and for a decade before that, was a 36B, pretty much from high school to my upper twenties. When are my boobs gonna quit growing? I'd be tempted to say it's weight gain, but I've actually be steadily LOSING weight in all other regards for about a year and a half, now. Yet my bra size has gone up. I don't know that I believe it actually has...I just think sizing is variable.
