Anyone out there feeling the need to just scream?

Something driving you nuts?

I know the feeling.

So I’m offering up a place to let loose and scream.

Go ahead.  You know you want to.

They didn’t complain that the top was too low. Just that the top I used to layer under it was inappropriate because it looked like my bra was showing.


The straps on the athletic top meet at the back behind the neck and don’t go straight back over the shoulders. This is better since tank top and bra straps always slide down my arms.

Not an Undergarment! It is outerware!

Because I’m short torso’ed and narrow shouldered, as well as large chested (even when I was skinny I was full chested), shirts are always to long in the scoop, square, or vee and too wide across the collar opening.  Even when I was 98 lbs I was far to big in front to wear the narrow shirts that some of the tiny women here are able to wear. I had to go up a size and had the problem with the deeper fronts and wider openings.   

The only way to fix this it to completely take apart and rebuild every shirt I buy.  That is beyond my sewing skills and clerical staff is not paid enough to have to take every item of clothing purchased to a seamstress. 

To provide extra coverage, many people layer tank tops and shells.  But I have the same problem with tank tops and shells.   They also do nothing to help keep my bra straps in place.  To provide extra coverage to hide my bra straps and chest, in the event of tops shifting, or to provide a bit more coverage across the décolletage, I wear workout tops that join to the back closer to the center of the back rather than coming straight over the shoulder.  They also come up higher across the chest than tanks do.  These tops provide significantly more coverage area than the bra cups and are therefore far more suitable. 

Since I’ve seen plenty of other people layer things for extra coverage under their tops, I don’t see why I’m told I cannot.  Especially since I see so many of them who are wearing tanks or spaghetti straps under sweaters and the bra straps, and sometimes even the bra cups, are often showing.   Especially since I’m layering with things to prevent that problem.

If I’m not allowed to layer things, I suppose the one sure way to avoid my bra straps from showing would be to wear no bra at all.

More athletic tops.
