You know how men and women tend to wear less/take their tops off in summer. Ive never really understood what, for women, is appropriate and inappropriate for say walking down the street or outside somewhere

I get that the breasts need to be covered.

I’m confused though as people might not like it if you walk about in a bra yet bikini tops are acceptable/cover the same amount of area

Similarly I’ve seen bra’s in the Nike shop which cover just as much area as a crop top.

So what’s the difference?

If I doing sport outside in summer and got really hot would it be appropriate for me to take my T-shirt off at the end if I had this underneath? Or would it be looked down upon as it’s classed as a bra..

I guess it’s just more a case of bras being associated as underwear and always under some kind of top whereas bikini tops aren’t, they’re made to be worn with nothing over them. I guess you could walk around in a bra but you’d be bound to get weird looks, similar to if a guy walked around in his boxers.

I think I get the impression that bikinis and sports bra like the one in the link are fine but like lingerie bras are a no? Also as the person above said bikinis and sports bras are viewed as actual tops compared to lingerie which is not.

Makes sense, never looked at it that way before. Even though it may be obvious to you I often miss logic like this no idea why

I've seen many people just wearing what you've linked in your original post, so I think it should be fine.

I've seen loads of women wearing sports bras like that. Seems pretty normal to me.

Doesn't even look like a bra it looks like an actual top lol.

Guys take off their t-shirt because they wanna create an ego, and assert their manliness to the other males.

It has nothing to do with how hot they are, a loose thin t-shirt will if anything keep you cooler than no t-shirt

Nah mostly it's because it's hot outside lol. You're just being insecure and projecting.

Nice of you to think that, but some of my mates which are professional fighters with six-packs and all the nice shiz, even they agree that guys who show off (especially in places where there are people who are fat and already feel uncomfortable with being in a place surrounded by shredded dudes) are just **** heads. Obviously, it's perfectly fine to have a nice body and show it off at the beach, in your garden, or on holiday. But as the OP is talking about sports, it's not usually that appropriate (unless you just won a footy match and want to run around the pitch like a mad man)

I highly doubt your friends said people who take their shirts off when it's hot outside are **** heads lol. It's such a normal thing to do I see people doing it every time it's sunny at the park. Even the women do it and start sun bathing. The sun only comes out a couple times a year in UK so people make the most of it.
