A question we ask ourselves every summer!
The sun is already shining in your face when you get up and you are looking forward to light, airy clothes? The new white summer dress, the white summer culotte or even just a basic white T-shirt. Or even if it’s just for work: which bra colour do you wear under white shirts? If you make the wrong choice in you lingerie selection, you might involuntarily show more than your boss should see in the meeting. Say goodbye to the slippery faux pas right away – here are our most important tipps for you:
If you wear a white shirt you need to wear white underwear, too? Nope, these two are false friends! A white bra always shines through the fabric. The ideal solution: red underwear! The better the red colour matches your own skin colour, the less you can see the bra under a white top. For lighter skin types, therefore, the colours nude, pink and light red are particularly suitable, while darker types should prefer red shades such as bordeaux.
Of course, it also depends on the material you choose. You can wear anything under cotton. Unless your shirt is super fine knitted or you choose a light blouse, then go back to red, pink or nude.
If you’re not going to the office, but to a summer party or for dinner with the girls, then you could also wear black lace underwear with your white blouses and shirts. This looks especially sexy and it doesn’t matter if you see the bra flashing through, if it’s intentional!
You like lace underwear in color and still want to wear white dresses? You’ll have to get a nude undergarment. Sounds like grandma, but is really practical: it ensures that no underwear is visible. Make sure it’s not longer than your dress or skirt and that it fits the neckline.
