Strapless Bra Alternative to Going Braless

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

My teenage daughter and her friends like to wear spaghetti strap tank tops. However, they wear these tops with bras underneath that show the bra straps. It looks tacky, but that's the trend I'm told, and that the alternative is no bra! I've already told my daughter that the alternative of no bra is not an option. What do you think?



Dear Old-Fashioned,

You're not old-fashioned. You're just trying to instill some modesty and taste into your daughter's style. Actually, the bra strap showing underneath spaghetti strap, camisole, or tank tops is considered pass´┐Ż now.

It's best to not have any bra strap showing. But, not wearing a bra is only for the more daring at heart.

A better option for a more modest "no bra" look is to wear a soft strapless bra or tube top underneath the thin strapped tops or strapless dresses. Some tops come with a built-in bra.

Alternatively, your daughter could wear a tank top under the thin strapped top. Wearing double layered tops, two tank tops or tank under a camisole is a popular look.
