  • Depends. Is the bra black and the top white? That's trashy. Pink on pink? Not so much. I think it's appropriate for any age if done the right way. Those clear bra straps are especially nifty.

  • the clear straps make me break out, so i can't wear those and i've never found a strapless that supports me, either do the "built in bras". so if i wear a tank i'm wearing a regular bra. i will wear the color bra of the tank or a nude colored bra if i don't have that color bra. as far as it being tasteless, its that or seeing through the tank/seeing my boobs bounce everywhere, so either or.

  • I just wear a strapless. I can't wear clear straps or any straps in public, I don't like the look. It's a great idea, but you're still showing your bra. As long as there isn't any 'excess baggage or spillage,' age shouldn't really matter. I'm 31 and don't plan on changing my wardrobe anytime soon.

  • If the straps match... you are fine. If the bra straps are brightly colored or more than the straps of the bra are showing, then it becomes tacky

  • I just don't think people should do that...that's why they sell those bras with the see through straps. Or for that matter, that's why they sell strapless bras!!! That's just my opinion.

  • T back bras are great with tank tops! Like the others said though, if the straps are not the same color or at least close, it does look not "put together". I won't say trashy cuz that is reserved for much worse attire mistakes IMO...

  • If the straps match then im ok with it otherwise i thing its trashy. I dont like my straps to show at all so i have a cover up thing that goes with all my tops like that so they dont show. But thats just me. I dont think you should stop wearing them because bra straps though.

  • I don't care as long as I am comfy. I can't wear anything but sports bras these days, and it's so freekin hot that I almost have to wear spaghetti strap tanks or any tanks I guess, so I gave up on caring and If I look trashy, oh well. At least I am keeping cool.
    (its not like I'm trying to impress anyone anyway, I got my man and have no fear of him going anywhere else, and he likes me no matter what I look like, so whatever. *smilez*)

  • I hate strapless bras. The cut into me and don't support a thing.

    I don't see anything wrong with the spaghetti tops with a tastefully discreet bra strap showing.
