PUBLIC OPINION > Bra Tops Are Sexy (Sometimes)

Living 2012/04/12 13:00:00
We're already a few weeks into spring, but since Mr. Punxsutawney Phil caught a glimpse of his shadow in February, the cold season has been overstaying its welcome. Now it's finally time to dive into spring fashion, and one of the most noteworthy trends surfacing on the runway (and red carpet) is the "bra top." The tummy-touting trend was worn by Katy Perry and Selena Gomez at the Kids' Choice Awards, and Miuccia Prada showed off a few different styles on the runway this week. We asked the public if the bra top gets a pass.

It's easy to see why Elle took issue with the trend. Bra tops did get a majority vote, but it was a slim win. Nearly everyone noted that it depends who's wearing it, for the same reason you might say a particular bikini would only be sexy on certain people. In other words, they seem better-suited for the young and skinny. But hey, it works on the Prada models!

Men Like It More

It might be useful for potential buyers to note that the look is far more appealing to men. Sometimes women dress to impress their own sex; sometimes they dress for the guys. This is definitely a look that will go over better in the latter case. Women were split. Guys were consistently impressed.

Kids Clash

Some older respondents said they'd wear an outfit like that if they were younger, but the demographic breakdown showed younger voters, particularly teens, were less likely to call the look "Sexy." It could just be that older voters admire bra tops for the youth they exude. Fortunately, voters over 50 began to lose interest.

Godless Tops

Finally, the last major demographic difference was religion. Christian voters were significantly less interested in the tops, for obvious reasons. Atheists, on the other hand, were some of the most interested respondents, with 81% voting in favor of the trend.

    With a high waisted skirt/pant, sure. With low waisted jeans=trashy.

    No garment is inherently sexy. Sexiness comes from the wearer and how s/he wears the garment.

    Some people can make coveralls sexy. Some people can't make "special" lingerie sexy.

    Yes, bra tops can be sexy when worn in good taste. The same as any other fashion trend.
  • Fashionable60s 2012/04/15 14:50:48
    Great for the young and the toned. They are not appropriate for office wear but OK for walking around on weekend or if you go to a resort.
  • Roxxi 2012/04/15 13:41:05
    But there has to be a balance. I wouldn't wear it with tiny shorts, more of something with a long summer skirt, and only for a casual setting.

    But, of course they are.
  • thebarbecuemaster 2012/04/15 06:53:21
    i think they should wear brazillian style bra tops called dental floss either way it will cause an increase in car accidents from men straining to get a peek. thats the downside men will crash into things so maybe the girls should just wear bikinis.
  • buneter 2012/04/13 22:25:20

    i think they are very nice on the right body
  • Tabitha 2012/04/13 01:40:14
    It looks stupid to me.
  • ChocolateThunder 2012/04/13 01:23:28
    It depends on who's wearing it and how it looks. For example, the second girl should not be modeling anything.

    Personally, I think it's alright to wear as long as you have the body, it's during the summer on a hot day, and it's a casual event.

    For anyone calling it 'whorish' or 'slutty'
    then so is this
    people at beach

    Look at those girls!
  • ktyxes Chocola... 2012/04/13 01:48:08
    are you sure the second one is a girl. thashicra
  • Chocola... ktyxes 2012/04/13 11:39:52
    I meant just the girls.
  • Bibliop... Chocola... 2013/06/11 20:03:51
    The second girl is hot. You must mean the third from the left because she is not as thin? How sad... unless you picked her out because she is Black.
  • stevmackey 2012/04/13 01:20:37
    I do not know. Ask an expert. Ask Madonna.
  • Resp 2012/04/13 01:15:29

    Any questions?
  • ★misfit★ 2012/04/13 01:06:15
    For the right figure, they are cute. I personally wouldn't wear one because I'm too soft and white, but why criticize those who can?

    If you're a girl with a really good body shape, if you are endowed woman, then sure it looks sexy.It is fail in any other cases..
  • ThewildOne 2012/04/12 22:07:29

    Just because you're wearing a low cut top, doesn't mean you should be raped.

    That's not true
