A Disturbing Trend. The Totally Exposed Bra

The totally exposed bra! The horror.

It used to be exposed bra straps were either cool or gauche, depending on what circles you traveled in. I was and am still a firm believer your bra straps should not show. Yes, once in awhile one slips, we get that, but blatantly wearing a racer back tank with a regular bra is a no-no and something we are seeing all to frequently.

Much to my horror I have been noticing something much more offensive of late and that is the totally exposed bra, forget about the bra straps! This look just let's it all hang out for the world to see. Even when Carrie Bradshaw did this on 'Sex and the City' (the show) I slapped my hand to my forehead (if you look closely I still have a scar).

The back view

When I saw this girl eating at a streetside cafe in NYC today, I just had to backtrack. I am thankful I had my camera on me and that she nor her friends noticed me snapping away. They were probably too buy trying to pretend they were not with her. If she were my friend I would have loaned her a jacket so I could regain my appetite. Sadly, I have witnessed this major fashion faux pas a few times already this year and fear this may be a trend. Trust me, this is not fashionable nor is it attractive.
