Is this a thing now?


this Burberry Prorsum taffeta dress juxtaposes a polished strapless neckline with a contrasting built-in bra.

I mean, I'm all for a built-in bra. But. Really?

  1. Dislike. And not just because it looks like she's wearing a sports bra with her party dress. The "dress" part of the dress looks like old lady curtains.

    1. Kate, here's an example of a BETTER WAY to promote your blog:

      "I think it might be a thing. I just posted a few dresses with built-in bras over here."

      No need to double-sign every comment. Srsly.

  4. Man, and I just got through begging my sister not to wear a bra with straps under her strapless dress (as she's wont to do).

    Let's be real, how many people could really pull this off though.

  5. This shall join Conservative Feminism and placenta-eating on my list titled "NOT A GOD DAMN THING."

    1. pretty sure placenta-eating is a thing.

    2. I love that combat fatigue is listed here as something alleviated by placenta pills. Fine, I'll add it to my *other* list titled STUPID THINGS. Right under vajazzling.

    3. placenta eating and placenta capsules are VERY MUCH a thing here in oakland.

    4. and let's just make it very clear that i had NOTHING to do with either.

    5. I just googled vajazzling...I'm even more horrified.

  6. this reminds me of that trend years ago for your undies straps to peak out over the top of your jeans (whale tail?).
    i didnt like that either...

  7. Built-in bras are for LAZYPANTSES.

  8. actually, it kind of looks more like a camisole. which makes it 100000000x worse.

    I guess Burberry is trying out their own version of clear bra straps.

  9. yeahhh... i can't get on board with this.

  10. Didn't Robyn on the Bachelor have something like this going on the other night?

    Don't act like you didn't watch it.

    1. It was Leslie in Badgely Mishka I think. Her's was sparkly though.

    2. No, Robyn was in some peachy dress with straps that looked like a bra. I can't find a good picture but it was something like this.

    3. i'm scared that you guys know all their names.

    4. Their names are so hard to learn.

  11. You guys are too quick to murder a revolutionary idea in its cradle. In the words of Little Nephew, "did God boo Jesus as he waited to be born?" Sure, the thing up top is violently ugly, but speaking as someone who loves strapless dresses but has a big rack, I believe the fundamentals of this concept are solid.

    1. This is not a strapless dress, it is a dress with bra shaped straps

      Delete
    2. I have seen girls wear strapless dresses with a shirt under it and it can look good if done properly. Kind of like this girl styled it. But the bra-shaped straps... I really don't like.

      Delete
  12. That dress is all kinds of ugly. I'm hoping that if I deny its existence it will go away.

  13. Oh I really don't like the built in bra thing. With an edgy bolero I think the dress itself could go well. (Maybe in a clashing color, for contrast or something sparkly, or lacy). But the bra... please no.

  14. I'm actually more bothered by the wonky-ass bubble hem.

  15. I too, am less horrified by the black bra-shaped straps than the poofy bubble cupcake dress action that is happening at the bottom. Why do women this this is a flattering or attractive hemline?!?! If you can picture this dress with a pencil-skirt shape instead, would we all like it more?

    Food (dress) for thought.
