Even the prettiest and most expensive bras rarely see the light of day. But thanks to the latest sheer trend, undergarments are getting their time in the sun â€” quite literally.Â And, as model Sara Sampaio puts it, â€œBras are so pretty nowadays that itâ€™s a shame to keep them hidden.â€
The Victoriaâ€™s Secret model loves to thrown on a blazer with no shirt underneath or even wear just a bra as a top and slip on â€œa good pair of jeans to bring a little coolness and laid back street feel to it. That way you donâ€™t feel like you are going too over sexy.â€
But it takes guts to walk outside of the comfort of oneâ€™s homeÂ revealing so much skin. (Sampaio, whose job it is to traipse around unclothed, admits she walks her dog a lot in just a slip sometimes. â€œYou just throw on some boots and you are ready to go,â€ she laughs.)
Her advice though, for those who arenâ€™t in her profession but want to give the trend a try, is â€œto have fun with clothes and break rules. Make it your own.â€ She adds, â€œI think itâ€™s all about how much you are comfortable showing. To me, thereâ€™s something a bit badass in showing your lingerie and not caring what other people think of it. If I like it, thatâ€™s all it matters.â€
Sampaioâ€™s co-worker and fellow Angel Josephine Skriver agrees comfort is key. â€œYou can always tell when someone isnâ€™t comfortable because theyâ€™re constantly tugging or pulling on the outfit,â€ sheÂ notes. Thatâ€™s why she recommends starting with something easy like a low-cut shirt that purposely shows a little too much. Then, itâ€™s easier to take on the trend.
And while the professional lingerie pushers are obviously big proponents of the style, that doesnâ€™t mean theyâ€™d wear it everywhere. â€œMaybe when you are first applying for a job,â€ Romee Strijd cautions.Â
