When I ordered this striped open-back sleeveless top from Nordstrom Rack, I had in my mind that I would wear cute bralettes underneath whenever I wore it. Well, I was pleasantly surprised when I received the tops (I picked this top up in the white with black stripes and one in navy blue with white stripes) that there is an attached bra inside. This is super considerate and well thought out by designer Robin Piccone because while a pretty bralette was going to be my solution, I feel like many of us are often held back from wearing certain items because of inconveniences such as an open back.
The back splits open after a short overlapping between the shoulder blades. The attached bra has a black trim which leads to the black ties which tie behind your back, bikini style. This not only adds to the aesthetic of the back of the top, but keeps the bra attached to you. Function and looks – the best of both worlds!
