There's no question that a little hint of lace or sheer netting peeking out of a blouse is incredibly sexy. Though, these days, we're seeing provocative little under-things coming out from beneath clothing in a much bolder way.
It was back at Fashion Week in September when we first noticed structured bras and lacy satin camisoles worn beneath tiny jackets and shrunken cardigans. Of course, we totally understand if that's not quite your thing—it's definitely more on the daring side. But lucky for you, these delicate pieces work just as well serving their original purpose. And, if a whisper of lace should catch the eye, well, why not? So, whether you dare to bare, or prefer to give just a hint of what lies beneath, these 20 bras and corsets will definitely make your dress-up routine a little more interesting.
