Tube top from Costa Blanca
Jeans from American Eagle
A tube top is a piece of clothing that is shoulderless and sleeveless and wraps around the upper body/torso.  Generally, tube tops are very tight over the chest/breast area, so as to prevent and avoid these garments from falling down.  This is usually achieved by using elastic material for the whole garment, or by simply putting a garter on top and/or bottom, and/or around the chest/breast area of the garment.  I read from Wikipedia that the first tube top was actually a "mistake," however, samples of the product were being distributed already.  Surprisingly, the tube top received positive reactions from the market, which placed them on shelves worldwide within a month or two.  It reached its peak in popularity in late '70s, and disappeared from the fashion scene in early to mid '90s.  It regained the limelight in 2000's, and with various versions of the style coming out, it has been "in" since then.

My only tip for ladies out there who are fond of wearing tube tops is that to make sure that you wear a nice undergarment with it.  Wardrobe malfunctions often happen, and you don't want to be caught wearing granny undies.  LOL.  Seriously, you don't want to flaunt unsightly things, so equip yourself with a good-looking and supportive undergarment, in case an "accident" happens (as they say).  Hehe!  In my case, I usually wear a bandeau over a strapless brassiere under a tube top.  I just can't afford a Janet Jackson nip slip moment! ☻

  1. if i may just add..make sure that you shave your know it's given. i'm fond of wearing this only at home, not outside. i hate my collar bone! kasi ang payat ko. there's a tendency din na kumukuba ako if i'm wearing one :)

  3. awww! looking sexy in the tube top Sis Karen :-) love the color too :-) is it warm in PA now Sis? Visiting from #88 of BPC.

  4. This post is very informative. I learned a lot about the history of tube tops -- how it evolved from a simple mistake to glamorous fashion. And let me just say that you look fantastic in it too! Spring is coming, and so you embrace it with the flowery print that's just very welcoming.

    The pointers are quite useful as well. Ladies should pay attention to that.

    Awesome post! Keep 'em coming!

  10. I used to love wearing tops, esp. when I was in Pinas, kasi naman, ang init doon! Now, I can't wear them. Ang lalaki na kasi ng mga braso ko. Nakakahiya na talaga. Lol.
