Wearing Lingerie as Outerwear

Cheap Chic — Trendspotting, Wearing Lingerie as Outerwear

lingerie as oterwear,forever 21,topshop,sweet peaAll you bold ladies, read this gutsy trend post in the Cheap Chic group.

Wearing lingerie as outerwear, done right, to me is a fun play on sexuality and fashion. Spring season is steadily approaching and I am already thinking of some fun ways to revamp my style persona. Why should lingerie only be worn for late night rendezvous for only the men to see? It is now time to show off our undergarments for everyone to see (I know, I sound like I want to walk out in a see through teddy). Lingerie, worn the right way, is uber sexy and fun. As pictured, Johanna from has a high-waisted pencil skirt, blazer, and layered necklaces, displaying the bra as a top rather than a something that should be worn to bed.

To hear more, and to see a widget of cute bras,


I know some ladies are not that bold to show off their mid-section and completely expose themselves. If you are a more reserved fashionista such as myself, wearing something see-thorough is little more your speed. Wearing a nice sheer button-up shirt would be great to still be able to show off your garments without feeling completely naked. And wearing a nice loose-fitting tank top in the summer is also another great way to pull this look off.

But please be careful if you are going to wear a bra as a garment; make sure the material and structure are correct. Never go for anything sheer. You can have a nipple slip without ever knowing. And please make sure you have the correct size bra, nothing needs to have the possibility of falling out and being exposed. So all you ladies that have thought about showing off bras, I say open those shirts and let those puppies breathe. LOL!


Below are some choices in some playful yet feminine bras that can easily be worn as garments.

There are already a bunch of groups you can join and explore, and please — start some new ones! Here's a helpful guide to creating in case you need some clarification.

I think this look is trashy how ever you style it. I don't want to see anyones lingerie and I don't want them to see mine.

OMG! My friend used to sneak out of the house and wear a vintage bra with a crinoline and bolero jacket. She had a ballerina's body and looked cute. I was too shy to pull it off. This was 1986.

A corset is another way to rock "underwear" as outwear. Most fashion corsets are intended to be shown off and if you're modest it's very sexy to wear a sheer blouse underneath the corset.

wearing a bra as a top is trashy, period. it should be left for the club, where it's usually okay to be trashy. i shouldn't be seeing your midriff anywhere else unless we're at the beach/pool or the gym

I like this trend, and the one with bright coloured bras underneath white shirts, but I don´t think I could pull it off =(

I like the playfulness and variety that this look offers - may try to work it into my wardrobe in a classy way somehow. I FEAR the ladies who will tarnish this fashion statement with ill judgement however...
