The bra strap thing - does this mean I'm getting old?

When did it become ok to wear your clunky, full coverage 18 hr under a spaghetti strap? And I don't mean just a little strap occasionally poking out by accident, I mean the back of the shirt cut lower than the hooks on the bra? Nor do I mean the ones designed to look like a camisole and peek out from a sweater. I mean this:

  • I'd rather see their bra strap than see them jiggle or fall out of their dress.

  • Yea I never did understand that. But these days girl will wear racer back tanks and regular bra's. At least the straps are pretty lol

  • Well if your old then so am I. Because I think it looks tacky and sloppy. It looks like you took care of all the details of getting dressed and said oh well when doing this. I personally don't care if your a size 2 or 42, I don't want to see it.

  • I am just amazed that moms would let their daughters go out dressed like that!

    Answer by dancer at 12:38 PM on Jun. 30, 2011

  • Well I am only 23 and I agree that it is tacky, they make the bras that are just the cups for a reason! As for the racer back comment, yes many women do that, but that is also why racer back bras were invented...or better yet that thingy that they sell that makes a normal bra into a racer back one, I bought a pack of those and I love them! I do not enjoy seeing anyone's undergarments, whether young or old, male or female.
