To wear or not to wear: the bustier top

As you can see I already worn a bustier top. But that was just to prove a point, for you guys, so it doesn’t count. My real question is who can handle a bustier top and what’s up with this hard to wear fashion statement items??!

There are more Cons than Pros to a bustier top, as there are more Pros than Cons for a little black dress. This item particularly is very difficult to wear mostly because the woman wearing it has to be at least three things if not all of them:

1. Super skinny

2. A person with great abs

3. A person with a long, beautiful torso

Now I did my best here, but the truth is this is not an item to wear on the streets of Bucharest. People are still not so opened minded and they will stare. If you don’t have the heart for that, you’ll mostly prefer to wear it at a) cocktail party b) pool party c) romantic/sexy date (definitely not on a first date, you’ll send the wrong message).

And because my sweet man was looking at me like crazy with a face saying “Are you gonna wear that BRA on the street?” I put on a white sheer shirt and knotted for the fun of it, instead of closing its buttons.

All in all I absolutely adore this sporty/lingerie inspired trend and think that if you have the heart&body for it, you should give it a try!

You can mix it with high-waist pants or skirts or with a pair of jeans and if you still feel too naked – cover your shoulders with a biker leather jacket or a tuxedo.

Also search for inspiration at Balenciaga, Balmain, Loewe, Jason WuMichael KorsMiu Miu, Versace.


  • Don’t show too much skin.
  • Preferably don’t show the belly button.
  • Cover up if you are too much for where you’re going.
  • Work that abs!!

Intrebare: cine poate sa poarte o bustiera? Si ma refer aici si la faptul ca trebuie sa ai un abdomen perfect sau doar sa fii foarte slaba, dar si la faptul ca trebuie sa ai curaj. Si inca una: care-i treaba cu toate tendintele astea atat de greu de purtat? <retoric>

Sunt la fel de multe argumente contra in legatura cu o bustiera, cate sunt pro pentru o rochie neagra.

Desi este dificil de purtat, trebuie sa recunoasteti ca aceasta piesa are totusi farmecul ei. Eu una sunt complet vrajita. Chiar si asa, bustiera nu este usor tolerata pe strazile Bucurestiului. Oamenii nu sunt asa deschisi la minte si te vor fixa cu privirea. Deci cel mai bine, poart-o acolo unde are sens: la o petrecere cocktail, la o petrecere la piscina sau la o intalnire romantica/sexy cu iubitul tau (numai sa nu fie prima intalnire).

Si pentru ca si eu m-am confruntat cu priviri curioase, mi-am pus peste o camasa alba, pe care am innodat-o in fata. Puteti sa o purtati la fel de bine cu pantaloni sau fuste cu talie inalta, sau cu jeansii preferati, si sa puneti pe umeri fie un sacou cu croi impecabil, fie o jacheta biker super cool.

Una peste alta, imi place foarte mult acest trend si daca aveti corpul si mintea pregatite, ar trebui sa-i dati o sansa! Va recomand sa nu aratati totusi prea multa piele, sa evitati variantele cu buricul la vedere, sa puneti ceva pe umeri daca locul in care ati nimerit nu va tolereaza e prea frig, si mai ales… sa dati o tura pe la sala si sa lucrati abdomenul!!
