i've just bought a strapless maxi dress.. would i get away with wearing a top underneath?


Its a tube top dress an was thinking of putting a t shirt under it so I can wear a bra....... but so far everything i put under it looks wrong... any suggestions!

    Wear a light see through shirt over it and a strapless bra or a bra with clear straps. The light shirt open would look stylish.

    Don't they make strapless bras? I'm not sure that layering this is a great idea, unless you funk it up with say, a huge fat belt, and why not leggings, too then? I think Cindy Lauper in the 80's could be a role model.

    some strapless dresses can look fresh, bold, and funky with paired with a fitted graphic tee. depends on how the dress fits, if it is tight or fitted and you are going to a formal event, then you need to purchase a supportive strapless bra. if they dress is loose like a shift dress, retro dress, oversized babydoll or something like that, then you can dress it down with a tee, jeans, and flats or sneakers with a graphic print.

    it wont look foolish but it depends on where you are wearing it.

    mandy moore wore a similar look for a shoot for a recent issue of elle magazine:

    No! Either wear pasties or tape your girls underneath with duct tape!

    a nude slip which you would be able to get at Macys or Norstroms. or maybe objective. i advise truly your mom would have informed you that. yet be sure its nude and its not longer then your dress.
