I actually like wearing tanks under all my tees.. So white shirt = nice low-cut white tank top.

Thanks I got a good idea of the variety of the answers.

I just don't have what it takes to wear a colorful bra or let my nips show.
You have to accept that people(men) will notice and keep glancing at your chest and they'll treat you differently because they'll keep thinking of you as a sexual being. As a career-oriented woman this is not advancing to be seen as a sexual object (except I guess for the people who don't mind sleeping to the top, that's not for me!)

PS I am certainly NOT saying that's what a colorful/no bra implies, just that it might make things a little more difficult to succeed in a "man's world" (if you have a career that's stereotypically "male") because of this attention you're bound to get

i wear a flesh tone bra, but never a tank top or camisole. my fave white shirt is agnes b, and they are practically sheer and the fabric is so thin and light that wearing a tank top inside might bulk it up.

What to wear under transparent / see through clothes
i bought a dress a couple of months ago and it is a blend of cotton and jersey. the problem is that it's white and if i go in the sun it is 100% see-through! what should i do? i can't wear a slip under it unless it's custom made because the back of the dress is a low u-neck. what are your tricks? something like spanx? nude underwear? i'm scared there will be an outline though!

sorry if this is in the wrong place or already posted but i searched and i couldn't find it...

What about a half slip? They're available in a number of lengths, from long to short, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find one that wouldn't show. You'd still have to find something for the top half of the dress, but at least the bottom wouldn't be transparent.

urban outfitters does have the best slips-check their website, they have all sorts of lengths and colors.

i had a see-through nightmare today-i wore a vintage polyester sundress sans slip because when I looked in the mirror i thought it wasnt that bad...that is until i started walking down the street and walked past a large group of men loudly speaking a language i did not understand....but i got their message loud and clear.

sometimes sheer things come with slips-i have one that came with a phillip lim dress that i use for just about everything.

I recommend nude-colored underwear and a nude-colored backless bra (or as Jane recommended, trying some place like Urban Outfitters). The underwear doesn't have to be a thong, it could be something seamless like this:

Nordstrom.Com, Shimera seamless boyshort
that keeps everything covered. As long as it's close to your skin color, it shouldn't show underneath.

Id say, wear either smth nude ( nude underwear but low cut on hips and kind of like laser cut tange on the rear plus a bra of same color) or smth of the same color as the sheer/transparent clothes.

Victoria's Secret Angels, Models and More.

I would wear nude seamles underwear as well, or a slip dress. Some of my dresses are seethrough as well, so that I have to wear tank dresses. It works pretty well.

nude underwear is easy enough...
but it sound like you can't wear a bra and you'll need something if it's as see through as you say...
