Fashion Faux Pas: Wearing a Bra as a Top

Who could forget the infamous episode of Seinfeld in which Elaine's frenemy Sue Ellen Mischke, flat-out refuses to wear a bra? Well, at least until Elaine "helpfully" gives her one as a gift and Sue Ellen wears it as a top. In true Seinfeld fashion, The episode is one of my all-time faves, mostly because I find the idea of wearing a bra as a top simply ridiculous.

Apparently wearing bras sans shirt is some sort of real life trend. Seriously. And I'm not talking about crop tops, or anything else that would even remotely be considered clothing. I'm referring to, what I would call, legitimate bras.

Celebs have been going for this look quite a bit lately.  Here are a handful of famous ladies trying it on for size (for their own safety, I'm not naming names):


Granted, all the gals have insanely amazing looking bods.  But I'm sorry...that simply doesn't make it okay.

Don't get me wrong--I love a fabulous bra. I probably own 50 or so gorgeous bras, courtesy of Victoria's Secret for the main part.  But much as I love how pretty they are (and trust me some of them are the cutest things ever) I still don't see myself wearing them front and center for the world to see!

Got a fantastic bod? Great. Own some super pretty bras? Awesome. Just do me a favor. Keep 'em underneath an actual shirt.  And if you're feeling gutsy, show them off to your main squeeze.

That is all.
