@AshAshAshlynn:  I think it depends. Even when I’m wearing a lined bra, if all I have on is a thin Tshirt and it gets cold, I can’t really help if they’re showing through my shirt. I wouldn’t call something I can’t help immodest. I also think it’s situational. If someone has an evening gown on or something specific where it’s very obvious from the outfit that a bra or other undergarments are not possible, I wouldn’t personally be offended by an outline, because I wold understand why I’m seeing it. However, if you’re just grocery shopping in a Tshirt and are blatantly bra free for no reason, I would feel more uncomfortable in that situation. Overall though, it’s not something I am going to be too judgemental about.

@AshAshAshlynn:  Yes, because they are completely avoidable. Those sticky chicken cutlet things are the best, and you can wear them with just about anything. I think the reson I hate visible nipples so much is because it is distracting, although not as bad as nipples that are actiually visible, like through a sheer top.

I don’t wear bras, so, when the conditions are right, sure, they show.

I don’t mind and I don’t think it’s “immodest.”  They’re nipples – everyone has them.  It’s completely natural and I hate the way our culture sexualizes women’s breasts on the regular.

It depends on what you mean by immodest. If you are a modest person I would assume you wouldn’t want that showing, but that doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with them showing. men show their nipples all the time and no one cares. I don’t think I even own a lined bra so I’m sure you can frequently see the outline of my nipples.

I don’t feel comfortable when mine or showing or when someone else’s are in public.

They have shown with some of my workout clothes, but I either cover up or change before I go grocery shopping or something first.

I wish our society and that I myself was more comfortable with it.  When I went for a bra fitting the woman fitting me was from Europe.  She said she often went braless but got too many disapproving looks here so stopped.  It would be wonderful to wear a tank with the built in support in the summer and just not care!

I wonder what you mean exactly by inmodest.


I don’t think is “modest” to show your nipples, but many times I don’t mind if mine are showing

@AshAshAshlynn:  Ha I was just thinking about this the other day!

I’m fine with mine showing a little bit, but the other day was VERY uncomfortable at work when you could really see the outline of the areola.  Also I work with teenage boys, so that’s definitely a consideration.  I hid in my office and bundled up!

I don’t think it’s immodest, no. Everybody has nipples and if somebody thinks a normal bodily function is shameful or needs to be hidden away, then well, that’s their problem. They have nipples too that get perky in the cold.

I’m not going to go around flaunting my nipples, but if they perk up while I’m out, meh. No big deal. I don’t tend to look at other people’s chests, so I never notice if they have perky nip.

My opinion is that a  women should take precaution to be sure they do not pop up in the work place, profesisional environment or place of worship but any other time it doesn’t matter. So immodest in certain circumstances.

@Hyperventilate:  “I’m not going to go around flaunting my nipples, but if they perk up while I’m out, meh.” 

This.  Among my laundry list of weird issues is some injured ribs.  Most of the time they’re fine, but sometimes it hurts to wear a bra.  So I don’t.  I wouldn’t go braless at work, but if my chest is hurting and I need to go to the store, I don’t particularly care if my nipples are showing.  I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it other than how society handles women’s nipples.

I hate seeing nipples. I know everyone has them but only mens should be visable.  Padded bras are affordable..

I just don’t get why you nipple would ever be showing/visible.  It is SO easy to avoid.

People need to get the hell over nipples and breasts in general. I don’t really care if mine perk up occasionally – not like I have control over that particular physiological response. And if someone is so offended by the knowledge that I have *gasp* breasts and those breasts have *second gasp* NIPPLES, they can get some of those blinder thingies horses wear so as not to have to look at my ~*womanly shame~* 😛

Also, cutlets? I have big girls and already wear enough layers. Not stuffing some weird ass gel thing into my bra so prudes don’t get offended that I have a body.

I dunno about this “everyone has nipples” logic.  Half of the world has a penis, but I certainly don’t want to see its entire outline poking through half the pants in the world either.
