Classic Camisoles | The Solution To Beige
As part of my longstanding campaign for men who wear lingerie and against beige lingerie, this article will deal with the role and function of the camisole. Camisoles are items of lingerie which cover the shoulders and the torso. They are traditionally sleeveless. They feel lovely against the skin, due to the fact that they are most commonly made of nylon or silk and they look incredibly feminine as well.
Many camisoles come with copious amounts of lace trim, others are significantly simpler. Most all camisoles however, are capable of hiding the horrific knowledge that the wearer has a bra on. I aim this comment at women who labor under the sad impression that a beige bra is required if one wants to wear a white shirt.
First of all, if you happen to move at all during the course of the day, the outlines of your bra will still be very much visible. The men who work with you will then no longer labor under the cunning illusion that your bosom is magically perky all the time. (If what I'm saying here makes no sense, it is a riposte to the claim that women wear beige bras so that men can't see their bras underneath their white shirts. Because, apparently, if men could see bra lines, they would become uncontrollably full of carnal urges and throw themselves upon their female co-workers. A similar argument keeps Middle Eastern women in burkas. For fashion liberation of women and men everywhere, let us abandon the beige bra with the burka.)
Camisoles not only cover your bra, but also allow an extra layer of slipping beneath your shirt. This is significantly more modest than brazenly going about with merely a shirt and a bra on. If you want to dress things up a bit, you can wear a camisole with a nice thick lace band across the top of it. These camisoles are designed to peek through your shirt and treat the viewer to a touch of lace. It's a nice, feminine way of saying 'oh yes, I have a body underneath my clothes' without being accused of being a brazen hussy.
If you happen to be a man giving the world a lace camisole peek, then you may very well be deemed a brazen hussy anyway because, as everyone knows, lace picks up a power bonus when it is worn by someone with a Y chromosome and becomes an object of note rather than simply another fine fabric out and about in the world.
