Simple, elegant, and versatile, the classic white blouse can look good on almost everybody. But wearing a white blouse can sometimes result in revealing more than intended. Choose a bra that matches your skin tone to avoid any awkward overexposure.

Choosing Your Color

Look for a bra in a shade that closely resembles your skin color and avoid embellishments such as lace or prints. Keep it simple and subtle. If you have darker skin, a dark brown or black bra will work best. If you are fair skinned, search for a light flesh-colored bra. Avoid white undergarments unless you are extremely fair-skinned. Consider adding a camisole over your bra if your blouse or dress is particularly sheer.
