Looking for a bra or shapewear that is truly seamless

Recommended Posts

ShawnaLeigh

Hello,

The subject line about covers my question.  The reason is I have an overwhelming desire to dress way more feminine underneath but since I am not out I have to still wear male clothing.  For work it is casual dress.  Collared shirt and slacks.  I have a huge amount of silky golf polo type shirts I really like the feel of.  Also I am in a very big weight loss phase after getting Bariatric surgery where 75% of my stomach was removed.  I am melting way but at one time I was nearly 300 pounds.  I am 184 as of today at 5'7".  I sadly have to look forward to loose skin I am sure.  Hence the ask about shapewear too.

I normally wear a compression tank top made by Underworks design for both male, and females (I think), that is more for working out and movement containment.  Very breathable,very form fitting and it is very stretchy but silky feeling. (I do have small breasts going already so dressing like a man I get noticed being perky and pointy.) This garment can easily be written off as a typical male tank undershirt if anyone notices the seams of it.  

So what's the problem you say?

If not a feminine piece of clothing.  

I have searched the web and I can not find a bra or shapewear that has truly no seams, or if it has wider straps it is cut so low across the back that it would clock me in an instant as wearing a bra/shapewear.  I have looked at jog bras but again the seams would not go over well under and polo shirt.

Maybe in a few months this will not be an issue but it is now.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I found a seamless, wireless bra at the Woman Within website, it was the Leading Lady Brigitte bra, very comfortable

Hey Nivegnal - I have a Tomboyx bra that's kind of nice and might work for you . Not sure about the seams though. I also have  a bralette at Walmart that works surprising well. Do you really think people will notice the seams ? and if they do?

Anyhow - good luck!

I will take a look at those Thank you.  
I notice them on other women but they are suppose to be there.  
Under a guys polo shirt that on a male?  Not so much. 
I admit to pushing my luck with some things.  I’m not looking to get clocked before I am out to all.

I have had this up for quite some time, but it is true and applies to clothing as well as pictures, but a little reversed for the clothing.  We are our own worst critics and are sharper than a tack on our flaws than any one else around.  I just wore looser clothing when I started to under-dress at work, which was easy since I too was losing a beer belly and moobs turninng to boobs at the time.

Try workout bras on e-bay. Not very sexy, but not obvious, even under a T-Shirt. And "Tee-shirt bras." Seamless cups.
