ANY SUGGESTIONS HOW TO WEAR LACE BACK TOP?
I ordered 2 of Antthony’s new lace back tops. The lace is only in the back and is only at the top of the back. Normally I would not have ordered a top with lace where this lace is but I can not resist some of Antthony’s tops. My question is do I wear skin colored bra or the color of the top? I am very hot natured and could not stand another layer under my top. I am over 50 and do want to dress my age. Should I not be trying to wear a lace back top at all? It has become difficult for me to decide what is right for my age. Help please.
Hi Carla, a lace back top is totally appropriate for over 50. Just wear the same color bra.
I think the last bra I bought specifically for one piece of clothing is the bra I bought for my wedding dress many years ago, lol. I’ve noticed teens and young adults wearing bright colored bras under lace or sheer tops. Looks cute, but not my style. I have regular, every day bras in a variety of basic colors for such occasions as a lace back top. I am sure you’ll look stunning and classy. Enjoy your Antthony tops!
Just thought to add that you can buy French styled bras at any Department store…at Victoria Secret… even Target. I’ve also seen them at Walmart too. I actually haven’t checked HSN and don’t even know if they sell undergarments like this but it’s worth a look-to…
They don’t necessarily need to be expensive ‘designer’ bras…just French ‘DESIGNED" bras!!! If you were to purchase one…you’ll also find that they are wonderful for off the shoulder tops and sweaters.. or boat neck summer tops…even wide necked summer dresses too! :heart:
They’re also referred to as French ‘type’ or…French ‘style’ bras
Good luck and let us know!! :womanhappy:
Looking at the back of your lace back top, I was wondering if you had considered a French designed bra? The French designed bras have the shoulder straps situated to the far right and left of the bra cup, which allows the strap to also sit well hidden in the shoulder areas of the style of top you’ve asked about… versus American designed bras which have the shoulder straps more centered over the breast cup of the bra.
I have many French designed bras that I wear with clothing such as you have asked about here, and absolutely love them..plus…they feel so feminine when wearing them too! The ones I particularly enjoy are by Christian Dior, but am sure you’d be able to find them by other designers.
You may still see a ‘peekaboo’ of the edge of the strap in some clothing, but looking at your top, don’t think it would even be that much. Besides..I do like that little ‘peek’ of a strap instead of a full on bra strap showing through a pretty lace area such as in your top…:heart:
Hope this helps…:womanhappy:
I’d just shoot the works and wear a bra the color of the lace…go for it! I have a couple lace back tops..solid colors and that’s what I do and I’m over 50 as well…in the fall and winter, I use tanks…but come summer…just a matching bra…hubby loves it! LOL
Victoria’s Secret has some really cute bras that are strappy in the back, and they come in all colors. You may want to look at those-I have several and they look really cute under tops like that and tanks, etc.
Thanks Loaf and Xabds for your nice replys and I will certainly be taking your advise.
I think the old rule of nude colored bra under white clothing is out dated. It appears anything goes now. I am glad. I see girls, and women with colored bra straps peeking out under their tank tops, or lace back tops all of the time, and It looks fine. Wear what makes you happy. Anthony does make nice stuff. Enjoy yourself.
Hi carla its Loaf listen that top is great if older woman can go on DWTS you can wear that top wear what makes you happy life is to short to worry about that go for it .
