Alexander McQueen perfects the “Boob Window”

Well, THANK GOD for bras, eh?

Without them, this model would’ve found herself doing a very different kind of “modelling” for the one she signed up for:

On the other hand, though, we somehow don’t think that when the House of McQueen decided that this grey sweater badly needed a boob window, that they anticipated it being worn with a boring beige bra underneath. Surely if you had a window on your boobs, you’d at least encase them in something a little more interesting? Or would you? What IS the boob-window etiquette these days, anyway? Not being fashion victims, we have no idea what you’re supposed to wear underneath your totally sheer top, and given that this one is already sold out, we’ll probably never know.

Unless, of course, you’d like to enlighten us?

    Under a completely sheer top, you wear a t shirt or tanktop. Or over, as the case may be. For this,You’d wear a quarter sleeve or something in a contrasting color, and it would just look like a stripe. Or at least, I would, because it would look really nice without that sheer bit.

      I agree. The shirt would be much cuter without the boob window. If you just HAD to have something there, just make it a nice colorful stripe.

    I guess exhibitionists need at least SOMETHING to wear, too. So why not sell them what they want? 😉

    I have a friend who always talks about how she loves wearing sheer tops with just a bra underneath. It’s for going out at night, but still… I think it looks weird, like you forgot to finish getting dressed.

    I actually hate the look of bras showing at all, I wear a strapless one when I wear a tank top 😛
