Faux Pas: The Bermuda Triangle
May 3, 2011
The vintage styles of the 1940s are everywhere. Front high waisted pants to tie neck blouses to mid-length skirts, everything old is new again. Unfortunately, the triangle bra, popular on the lingerie of the early-20th Century, is also having a comeback.
As a lingerie piece for intimate occasions, I love a sheer triangle bra. It’s sexy and relaxed. You could even layer the bra at left over a black demi-cup for a little something extra under a v-neck tee or tank top. But sadly, women are not leaving the triangle bras in the bedroom.
I don’t care if you are an A-cup or a DD, this bra is doing you no favors. Under clothes, a triangle bra looks like you’re wearing no bra at all. It provides no support, and no shape.
And, dammit, I need lift! You need lift! For the love of God, lift them up!
It doesn’t matter if it is VPL or droopy breasts, nothing ruins the look of a blouse or a dress faster than terrible undergarments. This bra belongs in the bedroom and nowhere else. So if ou’ve embraces this trend, it’s time to re-examine your lingerie choices.
Your breasts deserve to be lifted and separated, not saggy and shapeless.
