Sheer has been a trend for many many seasons now with clothing that reveals everything… especially those ratty bras that need an upgrade. If you are one of those girls still struggling with how to style the trend in a way that is fresh and impactful, these pieces might lend a hand.

You asked, “What are the best undergarments for sheer tops?”

There is no excuse to just throw on a regular bra under that top…not cute. I personally find sheer an exciting opportunity to layer and add dimension to an outfit. Wearing a solid color? Try patterns underneath! There is no shortage of bra tops and bustiers in colorful designs at Karmaloop.

Exhibit A: We have put the Lazy Daisy Top with the the Color Block Bra Top (both from Dimepiece Designs) and with that you can simply pair a little black mini or leggings.

If your garment is sheer and pattern heavy, you probably want to go with something subtle underneath. Something that will actually make your print pop on your sheer shirt.

Exhibit B: Take the Wild Child Top from *NYC Boutique over the Stretch Twenty Top by Lifetime Collective. This top is closer to skin tone, which is going to help the print reign supreme.
