In today’s post I’m going to sing the praises of an article of women’s clothing which alas seems quite unfashionable these days, whereas it should be as perennially popular as blue jeans: the loose, baggy, off-the-shoulder sweater. Here’s an example:
The wonderful thing about this garment is that it looks sexy: that slightly impression of wantonness coupled with (in some cases) a tantalizing glimpse of the breast whenever the lady leans forward makes, for me at least, a hugely-erotic sight.
It’s completely ruined by the appearance of a bra strap, by the way; the whole essence of the thing is near-nudity, even under so large and thick a garment.
Now I know that Not All Women Can Go Braless… but actually, a loose floppy sweater does an excellent job of concealing loose, floppy breasts, for example, so what would be unthinkable with any other garment top is not at all out of the question with a wide, loose-topped sweater. Here’s one with a very loose neck:
In each of the above cases, the model has a fairly modest bust — but a larger one would make the garment quite sensationally sexy.
While I quite like the Victorian “below-the-shoulder” (i.e. both shoulders uncovered), it’s a little more overt (albeit also very sexy too):
…but this one is definitely reserved for the Young ‘N Perky Set because of its tightness.
But a big ol’ floppy sweater falling off one shoulder?
