Sports bra at the office?

I have recently discovered some very comfortable sports bras with great lift and coverage (Champion brand) and I have been thinking about wearing them to the office. I realize no one should be looking at my bra but you can't help but notice the back when people wear sports bras. Do you think it is acceptable to wear a sports bra to work with blouses and nicer tops?

I have seen more women in those bras with the t-backs and honestly I think they look better anyways. And personally, I think if it is more comfortable and you are adequately covered, then wear them and don't give it another thought.

I think we women spend too much time thinking about our bras anyways. If you have found a style that is comfortable then congrats to you!

Depends on what type of sports bra. If its the type that looks like a regular bra but with wider straps and side bands, then it shouldn't matter. If it shows too much through the fabric of your blouses you could wear a lingerie camisole (looks like the top of a slip). If its more the traditional sports bra with a lot of fabric across the upper back and more of a compression bra, then it would probably look odd under regular clothes and also not create an attractive bustline. If its the traditional type then I would probably try wearing it with street clothes to see how it looks, if it is comfortable for all day and for the type of movements you make at work, if it gets sweaty, etc. Check out the back view because sports bras often cause "bra pudge" in different places than regular bras.

I think you will just have to try it and see how it looks and how it feels.  

It may be that it works find under some tops and not so well under others.
