Nipple Bra, No-Bra-Look While Wearing a Bra? 0

Nipple bra was invented in the 70s that allows women to show erect nipples through their shirt. There were ads in which women's nipples were protruding, making it appear that they didn’t wear any bras.  Nipple bra has built-in nipples that provide a sensual and cold-weather look, as the ads say.

Since its introduction, nipple bras have attracted lots of criticism.  Even nowadays, it is still considered an extreme case to show nipples in public.  So, why do you think anyone would want to purchase and wear a nipple bra? Here are some guesses.

The wearer is trying to attract attention and show the world that she is comfortable and confident with her body.  This is a way of making sure that she is noticed.  Or, simply because she just loves the nipple bra and thin blouse and doesn’t really care what people see and say about her lack of modesty.

It could be a total style screw up, a fashion mistake.  This is what I always think whenever I notice that a girl’s nipples are visible. Even some celebrities become more famous for their bad choices of what they wear.  A girl showing her nipples does not always suggest that she is out to seduce anyone, but rather a matter of fashion blunder. In this case, maybe it is a polite thing just pretending that you do not notice.

Perhaps the woman is not happy with her nipples. Nipples can vary in shape and size and point to different directions. Actually there are four types of nipples:  (1) normal nipples erect themselves a few millimeters from the areola.  During cold weather or when the woman is aroused, they go even further, (2) flat nipples need stimulation or a cold temperature to protrude, (3) puffy nipples are characterized by raised areola, and (4) inverted nipples are those that turn inward.  If the inverted nipples have always been that way since the beginning, they could be not much of a problem – the nipple bra will help.  However, if they turn inward only recently, it is probably better to have them checked up.

While a nipple bra can make a woman look sexy (it really depends on who sees it), we do not really think that it is a good way of getting a guy’s number. Just imagine the awkward situation once he finds out that the nips are not real?!!!!!!!!! 

Boob Jam: The Breast in a Video Game but In a Different Perspective 0

The Boob Jam is a computer game website that was built as a result of an idea posted by the site owner, Jean Frank, on her Twitter account.  The post goes like this:  “What if you had to watch a sexy videogame character who also buys bra, and cries softly when she can’t find one that fits, and go in for mammogram?” 

The idea suddenly came to Jean Frank, who said that really, it was not a joke, but something funny.  The post earned comments from some people, saying that they will play the video game that Jean Frank has in mind.  Other comments suggested other ideas, and as they pour in, she decided to create the Boob Jam website.

Videogame developers were invited to create games about boobs but not as they are commonly looked at by the male species:  as sex objects.  For example, a game can be developed, where breast health can be promoted, or where the devastating story of a woman who was just diagnosed with breast cancer is narrated. The game can also be about the anatomy of a breast, or breast development in the perspective of a trans-woman.  These are the subjects that videogame developers can work on, and, really there are many other subjects to explore.

Actually, there is no criterion on the design.  The instruction is to make a videogame that is all about boobs, but not discussing about the size:  is it too big?  Is it too small?  Or, are the boobs suited to the character? The jiggle physics, they’re such a big deal.  People always love to talk about breasts, and it is not in the way that the website owner would want in her site.  Why?  It’s because for the rest of the women (and some men, too), boobs are not just playthings.  They are part of a woman’s body that we are living with everyday.

Sometimes, boobs become problematic if they are too large and get in the way.  Some women want them reduced.  Sometimes, just a brisk walking can be a tough task.  Some women are happy with their boobs, others are not.  That is how complicated boobs are. People who have known about the Boob Jam believe that the videogame website is an ideal way for game developers to portray the women’s breasts as not just objects that offer sexuality, but as something that can get people affected in many different ways.

So we are looking forward seeing how the video game makers determine the weight and gravitas that can pour into this boob game design since boobs have different meanings to different people, and there are ways, so many ways, to talk about them; not just to titillate the player.  

Peek-A-Boo Bra Is Making a Comeback 0

What is this bra that you call peek-a-boo?  Well, this is the type of bra that reveals the maximum of your breasts, including the nipples. This is also sometimes called the open cup bra. The peek-a-boo got its name from its style where the breasts peek from the bra cups.  Its opening can be on the nipples or on the tits. Some women who wear peek-a-boo bras use nipple pasties or nipple covers

This type of bra was made famous in the 90s by Tiffani Amber Thiessen. Then it went out of fashion.  However, today, as we are pulling out of the economic recession, we are beginning to see people who are taking risks with their fashion.  Heidi Klum is an example.  She was often spotted wearing a peek-a-boo bra some five or so years ago; and now you can see her again wearing one, either under a sheer blouse or a see through one. It’s not only Heidi Klum.  There are also Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele, and Lady Gaga who have been stepping out in just their bras, a skirt/pants, and boots or sandals.

Peek-b-boo bras used to be a fantasy costume. These undergarments were best worn during the evening and private parties, and were not seen as suitable for day wear. Only the celebrities wore them, however, today even the ordinary women who desire to fancy themselves are wearing peek-a-boo bras, and even during daytime.  How fast the lingerie fashion revolves!

There are varying styles of peek-a-boo bras; different colors and different fabrics.  You may consider adding one or two of these in your lingerie drawer for times when you need to wear one.  You can choose from a wide variety some of which are decorated with laces, zippers and ribbons, or beads.  You can have them with matching panties that have open crotch, and some accessories including garter belts, socks and others that can add to the spice.  There are peek-a-boo bra sets that include a coat and a hat, and you’ll be certain that your look just becomes sexier.

However, peek-a-boo bras are not always welcome to some women who think that fashion is becoming trashier, with the type of bras that are introduced to the market. These people see that even Pinterest boards are full of sexier, shorter, more revealing and inappropriate clothing and undergarments, including the peek-a-boo bras, the sheer tops and the see-through dresses, which could have been worn as an outer cover, they say.

Despite the negative comments, we cannot deny the fact that the peek-a-boo is making a comeback, and it is trending. Celebrity or not, the wearer definitely is proud to be seen hitting the streets with almost nothing left to the imagination of those who see them. Are you ready to embrace this trend?

Celebrities, Bras 0

For those of you who are constantly watching the celebrity fashion, you might still remember the different bra styles made by designer Jean Paul Gaultier. The most notable of these creations is the iconic cone bra corset worn by singer Madonna in her Blonde Ambition tour.  There are also other styles such as those that have cups covered in gems, the metal breastplate, the one with nipple-covering zippers, and then Rihanna’s trench coat which exposes her black bra.

However, these bras were designed for celebrities; these were made to be shown off. For us ordinary women who are not actresses nor musicians nor concert artists, it could be much different. For us, a simple bra can mean so many things – a source of mystery for a young girl (or even boy).  It is a source of support for old ladies; a way to look better in any clothes by changing the body shape for some women;  a tool to feel and look sexy for most of us.

When not doing a show or a concert, celebrities are just like ordinary women who need a bra – a good fitting bra.  The bra haters are not concerned with this issue, though. The famous women and the ordinary ones need their bras to fit to look good and feel comfortable, and both should be able to choose the right bra.  You may be wearing the most expensive attire, the best hair do, beautiful make up, etc., but if you are not wearing the right undergarment, it is very likely that you wouldn’t like how you look overall.  A bra that does not properly fit and therefore bulges has the ability to spoil your look, even if you are wearing the most expensive dress.

Whereas, a perfectly fitting bra can provide the necessary support while at the same time make you feel comfortable.  It gives you not only confidence, but can make you look slimmer by defining your waist also. Additionally, there are some serious health issues that result from wearing the wrong fit bras, but I wouldn’t discuss about it at this time.  It may take time and patience to find the perfect bra for you, but you’ll realize it is worth the effort once you see and feel the look and comfort it provides.

To make sure that you get the right fit, go to a standalone lingerie boutique or a department store.  For people who are DYI type, measuring yourself at home is the easiest since the bra sizing guide is abundant online. 

Finally, whether or not you are a celebrity, there is a process to be followed in finding a perfect bra.  You get yourself measured, choose your style, try the bras on, and test out the new bra on band and cups. It’s just a simple process that can give you comfort and good looks.

Going Braless Becoming a Trend among Celebrities 0

Ladies, do you have enough courage to step out in a see-through dress braless, like what Anne Hathaway did at the Met Ball?  She arrived at the Met Ball red carpet with a new hair color, which shocked some people.  But it was her side boobs that showed through her sheer black long sleeved dress that got more attention. The Met Ball theme was punk, and in fairness, Anne looked punky, sassy and confident in her braless attire. What’s more, her side boobs looked fashionable without even trying to.

The Met Ball was not the first time Anne tried braless.  Her nipples also showed at the Oscars last February 24, and she showed much more, although accidentally, in December at a premier.

It looks like that going braless to red carpet events is becoming a trend among the celebrities.  Besides Anne Hathaway, Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Rhihanna, Miley Cyrus and others are only some of the celebrities who were spotted letting their nipples slip into view as a part of their fashion statement. What do you think, ladies?  Is it okay for these people to dress like this in an event? 

It might be OK for celebrities to dress according to a particular event.  I mean it is not a thing that they do everyday, hopefully.  But for other people who do not belong to the entertainment industry, I believe it not proper to have bare chest and nipples underneath a sheer dress viewed by many onlookers. 

A woman should wear a bra for three main reasons – for modesty, support, and because it is clothing item that fascinates a man.  So, if you decide to go braless, you will not be getting the support that your breasts need, besides being thought as a woman who is not so much concerned about modesty.  There is also the fact that going braless will attract people’s attention, so get ready to hear some bold remarks, especially from the men who you come across in the streets.

As the shape of our nation continues to change, women are getting bigger. The lingerie size which is 34B on the average has become a 36C during the last decade.  Therefore it is more important today than ever to give your breasts support and comfort by wearing a right fitting bra.  A good fitting bra can improve your appearance and a real boost to your confidence.  Breasts need to be supported because it is mainly composed of fatty tissues that lose their elasticity over time.  Wearing a bra everyday can also prevent sagging and stretch marks.

Some women don’t want to wear bras because they believe that it is a pain in the (not ass, but) bust, with the clasps, straps and under wires coming into the picture.  For these women, going out sans bra feels much like getting your feet out of your stiletto after a tiring and long day. However, going braless sometimes results in having a look that could be perceived as immodest or trashy.  So a good advice is for you to maintain some levels of modesty when you want to go out sans bra.

Bra Wearing Styles That Make You Look Trendy 0

Artful details, luxurious fabrics, and exquisite designs are what make the bras of today.  When I wear these types of bras, I feel somewhat different, beautiful and special   Most bras are designed to fit all shapes and sizes of women from petite to average to full figure and even plus sizes.  Do you have a size F cup?  It’s not difficult to find, and they do not only look beautiful;  they are supportive as well.  Most bras that are available today are lacey, and they are sublime.  Some may have sheer lace overlay, while others have hints of lace only.

During the past several years, bras should be hidden under your dress.  In order to avoid being classified as sloppy or trashy, bras should stay where people wanted them to stay.  No straps nor a piece of lace must be shown.  There were times when some creative women bought straps to match their outfit, and then wear shoulder-baring dresses and tops.  So, the attention of people are drawn to the straps, which is not modest.  While we see nothing wrong with creativity,  you can definitely find ways to show to the public your unique style.Bra Off Shoulder Top | FinallyBra

Here are some helpful ideas.

1.  If you have an oversized top with deep neckline and large armholes, wear it with your bra underneath.  The top of your bra will be shown at the neckline, and the side flaps will show on your armholes.  It will create a cute look, but simply done.

2.  Put on a lacey bra with a deep V-neck top and allow the lace to show above the neckline.  You can try pairing same color top and bra, or use contrasting colors like turquoise top and pink bra, or gray top and purple bra.  It can give you a cowgirl look if paired with jeans and boots.

3.  Put on a large size shirt over your lacey bra, tuck it in your skinny jeans, a tight, or a miniskirt. Then get  the first 3 top buttons unbuttoned to show the bra lace and your cleavage.Lace Bra Under Oversize Jacket | FinallyBra

4.  Do you have a sheer blouse that you can’t wear without  a camisole?  Wear it with your favorite bra.  If the sheer material is decorative,  the bra that you wear with it should be simple.Bra Under Sheer Top | FinallyBra

There are more bra wearing and baring ideas that you can pick, however it is important to make sure that you wear your bras to your advantage.  Mastering this skill is a tricky one, but trying your best to gain the knowledge will make it possible.  First, make sure that the bra properly fits, especially if you’re going to wear it with a sheer fabric.  There can be nothing worse than wearing a bra in the wrong size.  There are times when your size depends on the brand, so when shopping for your size, we insist that you try them on.

When you are planning your outfit for the following day, select also the undergarment to go with your selected top or dress.  This will help you avoid fashion mishaps such as the bra tops showing out of your spaghetti strap dress.
