Underwear as Outerwear: the Venus bustier

underwear as outerwear

This is the ‘Venus’ bustier.

As you can see, they’re using the word “bustier” in its loosest possible sense, because, as far as we can make out, this is just an excuse to go out in public wearing just your bra. It’s a NICE bra, granted, but honestly, we’ve had nightmares which look a bit like this, and in which we’re walking around in public when we suddenly realise we’re only wearing clothes on one half of our bodies.

We’re becoming increasingly convinced we’re alone in this, however, because “bra as top”, like “leggings as pants” and “net curtains as skirts” seems to be a growing trend: we frequently come across photos of models wearing outfits a lot like this one, and the reaction seems to be largely positive, as if no one else has noticed that hey, the model isn’t wearing any clothes! (Also: the poor love must be FREEZING. As our mothers would undoubtedly point out around about now…)

Tell us: would you do this? Would you wear a bra as a top? Or does this strike you as a clear-cut crime of fashion?
