Mesh front sweater from Topshop: a window on your breasts!

Oh look, it’s a window for your boobs! Never again will they be forced to hide themselves away behind pesky fabric, and miss out on what’s happening in the world, for they will both see and be seen from behind the mesh panel of this Topshop sweater! Awesome!

OK, let’s be sensible for a minute: obviously this sweater isn’t actually supposed to be worn with nothing underneath (or, we would hope, with just your regular underwear underneath, either), so what do you think of it? Is it actually quite an interesting idea, allowing you to combine the practicality of a sweater with something a little more exciting underneath? Is it the ideal solution to those days when it’s too cold to wear your favourite, strappy top on its own, but you don’t want to have to hide it under knitwear? Or is it just a sweater with a pointless window in it? Tell us!

    i really don’t know anymore. when i saw it i instantly hated it, then when i imagined it with a nice colourful shirt underneath, it seemed decent.

    Hideous & ridiculous. I don’t get the nude (and now near naked) craze…
    It could at least have been in a nice vibrating color!

    Not keen. Honestly, if I want to show a nice summery top but still have some knitwear over it for warmth, I just wear my cardi open 😛

    I can actually imagine this being pretty snazzy. I’ve got a lot of T-shirts with designs/slogans on the front, and this would just be a way of adding sleeves to them! I’d consider it if I found one cheap.

    This could work, I think. Especially for teenagers.

    Never been a fan of mesh, never will. I think it could only work if the rest wasn’t so wide & baggy.

    No. That is why cardigans were invented. Simply unbutton to show off your cute top underneath. This is an abomination.

    Obviously it is to combat that most annoying of all belly sweat…why haven’t you ever said to yourself “I really want to wear a baggy gray sweat shirt but my belly just always gets so sweaty,” well problem solved!

    Thank you Topshop for finally solving this troubling problem.
