Victoria’s Secret surfaces 30 results for high-neck bras. A few of them are sports bras, so fine, but the rest of them are lacy, cleavage-revealing, neck-hugging designs that, to be honest, look like super-sexy (and uncomfortable) bibs.
Do you need a super-sexy bib? More importantly, where and when might you wear a super-sexy bib this holiday season? We have a few ideas!
- While enjoying a sexy lobster dinner on Christmas Eve
- While making gingerbread houses/holiday cookies/any other seasonal dessert that’s heavy on the flour (so messy!)
- While participating in a Jingle Jog with your fitness-crazed friends or family — just write your race number on your bra and go!
- While taking a spin behind the pottery wheel to make custom bowls and mugs for your loved ones
If you really think about it, though, this item is sort of the turducken of lingerie; it’s like a turtleneck ate a crop top that ate a bralette. So good on VS, we suppose, for hitting three trends in one perplexing — but perhaps, under the right circumstances, practical? — item.
