Forget trying to wear a strapless bra with vest tops that have shoe string straps, it will just make you look like you have a cleavage shaped like an old sausage. Either go without or show off your normal bra unashamedly, which looks damn sexy. Little vest tops like those shown here are the things to wear with your dainty cardigans (a round-up of which will be shown next week). Watch out for ones with very low armholes, as this can show off rather more than you intended - if necessary and possible, shorten the straps by a couple of inches with a bit of home stitching.
