Can See Through Shirts Just Go Away Now Please?

Maybe I am secretly Very Old instead of just a crotchety 20-something, but I HATE this whole see-through-everything trend. It’s unnecessary and incredibly crass to go about with your underwear on display. It just seems attention-seeking and gross. It’s like those dudes who can’t seem to put a shirt on. Fun to look at, but you’re thinking, “What a dudebro.”

Anyway, here are my thoughts on the matter.

I don’t need to have on a see-through shirt to feel sexy or beautiful. I know and love my body as it is, and I feel like seeing my entire person is a limited privilege. Yes, I will change in front of my friends. Yes, I will sometimes walk around the house with no pants on. But those are, to use an older version of the word, intimate moments. My best friend’s cousin’s former roommate isn’t going to turn up and see me in my bra. My friends and N might, but that’s different than going out in public with a shirt that is a single layer of cheap chiffon.

tl;dr: Not everyone needs to see your bra.

As for what sparked my ire, we have Kim Kardashian wearing a see through shirt and a bra as though that is somehow socially acceptable.

I would like to say for the record that I would hate this shirt on 100% of people.

This is too much information about her and her life. And while I am mildly extra annoyed that she’s way pregnant and wearing a see-through shirt, I’m more annoyed by the fact that anyone is wearing a completely see-through shirt. LINING. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING.

If I was feeling really pretentious–which I might be–I would talk about how the see-through-everything trend is an extension of our seeming need to share everything about our lives with everyone (see: reality tv, facebook, twitter, etc.). I think it kind of might be, though.

Sorry for the delay; the internet here has been being difficult.

    This is so typical of Kim! It wouldn’t surprise me if she was wearing skin tight see through leggings with this top.
