Cami Secret Is A Fake Camisole You Attach To Your Bra

To others, the “Cami Secret” appears to be a camisole, but it’s actually a hankie you attach to your bra.

Now you can wear your lowcut top to work without worrying about your boss staring down your shirt, then quickly and easily remove it for after work drinks with the girls. It’s as easy to dispense with as your pride.

I also suppose that you can store it when not in use by attaching it to the back of your bra.

There is also a NSFW parody called “Boob Apron” with a dubbed voiceover.

    I have several bras like this: http://www.barenecessities.com/Natori-Zen-Floral-Camisole-Bra_product_Natori134020_,search,.htm
    For those days I feel like I’m showing too much.

    I must admit, I do like the idea behind this “Cami Secret” but the material is probably low-quality.

    • smo0 says:

      It’s a good idea… but I think the commercial should be geared towards the concerns I mentioned in my comment. I know women will see the less sexist and more realist approach.

    • Leksi Wit says:

      I love natori bras! They make regular (non-camisole) ones too. You can be fitted for this brand at Nordstrom. The thing above looks cheap. Plus, they make wearing a real camisole appear to be such a huge pain. That’s a total lie. You can get comfy, form-fitting (read: not loose) camisoles that can actually slim you at most department stores.

    Really?

    • Wombatish says:

      Really.

      It’s a good idea just, as others have pointed out, probably poorly executed.

      Unless a cami just fits you perfectly it -will- work it’s way down over your chest (or, more rarely, up, like a seatbelt) and you’ll have to do the “pull it back up” maneuver that requires reaching half into your shirt.

      This would in theory avoid that (unless one of the flappy edges got lose or it shimmies down the bra straps) but again, likely super cheap materials etc. I’d rather check out the ones actually built into the bra CherieBerry linked, never seen that before but it’s an awesome concept.

      So yes, really.

    “you can wear your lowcut top to work without worrying about your boss staring down your shirt, then quickly and easily remove it for after work drinks with the girls. It’s as easy to dispense with as your pride.”

    As most women in the work place can tell you.. it’s not the men we’re trying to ward away – it’s the other women. If you show an inch of skin around certain areas… the women all go complaining to the management, and the next thing you know you’re being writting up for inappropriate work clothes.

    I wrote a lengthy comment about this back on the thread about that woman being fired from CitiBank for having too “sexy” clothing.

    • myCatCracksMeUp says:

      If you were written up for showing too much skin, then maybe you were showing too much skin for your work environment.

      A woman I used to work with was extremely well endowed, and everyday she wore very tight, very low cut tops. I (and I’m a woman) couldn’t talk to her without my eyes being drawn towards that huge expanse of breasts showing, and the tight tops. I never said anything, never would, but one day she complained about men always staring at her cleavage. She was really upset about it. I just gave a little “what can you do about it” shrug, and left, so I wouldn’t burst out loud laughing in front of her.

      • smo0 says:

        No, I’m not actually… prior to my breast reduction, I work T-Shirts and jeans while I worked at CitiCards… lord help me if it was a baby doll tshirt too… everything except my neck, arms, head and hands were covered and people still complained…
        In fact, as I mentioned some time ago, I once came to work wearing the same dress shirt as another co worker.. I was told that the shirt did not meet dress code… (by this time it was getting a little ridiculous) so I marched my ass into HR and pointed out the person who brought it to my attention and the other person wearing the same shirt… and threatened a harassment lawsuit… it ended after that.

        The same thing happened at my current job, but we have to wear professional attire, dress shirts and slacks…. prior to my breast reduction, it happened quite a bit and I often complained to management and fought with my supervisors over the writeups…. after my reduction, no one said much to me… and in the recent months, I’ve been told I have to wear “cardigans” and/or bulkier tops to work. Also – I’m wearing the same clothes I had pre – reduction which fit much looser and nicer on me than before.
        Because of anti-retaliation policies at my job, they can’t tell me who keeps complaining, just that there are complaints… my last interaction with my manager is that it needs to stop before I take a legal stance and he better hope to god it’s not the same person.

        • tsukiotoshi says:

          That is very unfortunate. I hope it stops for you. That would annoy the crap out of me. This is also why I wear my business casual attire baggy. Of course, then people tell me I should wear smaller clothes. Ah well, can’t win can you?

        • FredKlein says:

          everything except my neck, arms, head and hands were covered and people still complained…

          It’s not always how much skin is showing. It’s also how tight the clothes are.

          after my reduction, no one said much to me

          Bingo.

          • Rectilinear Propagation says:

            Yeah, “bingo” as in the problem was her chest size.

            Remember all the bruhaha over the Lane Bryant underwear commercial?
            http://consumerist.com/2010/04/what-do-fox-abc-have-against-this-womans-boobs.html

            She’s not showing any more skin or wearing tighter clothes than women in other underwear ads, but she’s “obscene” because her chest is bigger.

            Retail clothing assumes you’re proportional so if you aren’t you can’t win. If you wear the right size shirt then it’s tight across the chest and it’s obscene. If you go up a size or two to compensate then the neck hole is too big and it goes sliding off of your shoulders and/or shows your bra and it’s obscene.

            • hattrick says:

              This is true–big chested women are sexualized much more aggressively, and it’s not fair. Jessica Simpson was banned from singing in her church when she became a teen because her breasts were too big.

              I’ve always been a small-chested woman. I remember realizing one time that if I wore a dress with a plunging neckline, it looked avant-garde and sophisticated, but when my friend, a larger-chested woman, wore it, it looked unbelievably trashy. When I got pregnant and my boobs grew, suddenly I had to be incredibly careful about what I wore, and it was really annoying to deal with that when I was trying to deal with nausea and exhaustion.

              And that’s not “how we’re dressing,” it’s got to do with how we categorize woman into “respectable” and “not respectable” categories based on physical characteristics totally beyond their control. In a business environment, women constantly have to toe the line between looking like you care about your appearance, without looking too sexy. If you don’t have a lot of cleavage, you can dress with a lot less worry or concern that you’ve moved from “cares about how she looks” to “unprofessional” even though you’re wearing exactly what everyone else is.

              I mean duh, sometimes people DO dress unprofessionally. But there’s a whopping dose of double standard here, and I think people need to be more honest about that.

          • smo0 says:

            No, not bingo. I got my reduction because of back issues… it had nothing to do with being harassed at work…. and if you continued reading my comment… the harassment resumes… all of my clothing loose fitting… I sit all damn day, I wear ballet flats…

            I hardly wear any make up… I guess I have a natural beauty and all of the women are jealous… doesn’t stop them from complaining, but it doesn’t stop the endless documentation I have to, one day, prove harassment and cash out.

      • RayanneGraff says:

        THIS. I’m sick of women wearing revealing clothing & then bitching when people look at them. It kinda reminds me of when I was goth in high school- I KNEW I was gonna get some stares by dressing like that, and I didn’t complain about it.

        It’s simple- don’t reveal what you don’t want people to stare at!

      • Snarkster says:

        I think you meant to write “bust out loud laughing”.

    • Sparkstalker says:

      At one of my previous places, we actually had one (old) woman who appointed herself as the skirt monitor. I shit you not, she had a tape measure and would use it…of course, she always seemed to pick the same targets, who conveniently, were the more attractive women there. As a man, I found that sort of discrimination disgusting…

  4. digital0verdose says:

    Ladies, this is how it works. If you wear anything at all that complements the ladies, you are going to get checked out. Know this before you go shopping and shop according to the type of attention you will get. Its an involuntary reflex that we men have. Much like our hearts beating, we have very little control over it.

    • nobomojo says:

      not just men like to look, women too. sometimes you just can’t help it.

    • evnmorlo says:

      A woman dressed in anything less than a burka will reveal enough to make her interesting as a sex-object.

        I’d check her our still if she had sexy eyes and looks like she could be hiding a nice figure under there.

    • brandihendrix says:

      That sounds more like a males problem and less like a females problem.

      Learn to control your hormones men. The world will be a much nicer place if you do, I promise.

      • Moweropolis says:

        That’s like putting a little kid in front of a pedophile and saying ‘It’s fine, just control your urges’.

        I don’t make it my duty to find breasts, don’t make it yours to strut them out in front of me.

      • justagigilo85 says:

        Such a skewed point of view…

        Read through the comments here, women look at breasts too.

        The only difference is, women are the ones who complain about it.

    • The_IT_Crone says:

      Oh please. You talk like women in baggy tshirts and jeans aren’t ever harassed.

    That dude in the movie doesn’t know how to properly look at cleavage. He’s ruining it for everyone in the office. Stupid fool

      • Loias supports harsher punishments against corporations says:

        I meant showing cleavage, not whipping them out.

        Women: If you want to impress a guy and increase the chance they will call you back, show some cleavage. It’s not the only thing a guy cares about, but it is one…make that two of the things he cares about. It doesn;t have to be obscene, but a guy wants to know you’re not a prude.

        • Murph1908 says:

          I think it’s more “work to your strengths.” Nobody is perfect, but everyone has their good features. If that’s your legs, show ‘em off. If it’s your eyes, work them.

    I love products that that claim to be a solution to a problem that could just as easily be solved by using the item that the new product wishes to replace.

    I have this amazing new product for times when you’re wearing suit pants that probably should be worn with a belt, but you just don’t like belts. It’s a narrow and thin strip of leather with a metal buckle in the front. But it’s only six inches long, and only attaches to the front of your pants by a system of needlessly complicated clips and straps. There’s no need for a full size belt, as the suit jacket covers the back!

    Ingenious! Only $19.99 plus “processing.” All I need is a catchy name…

    • myCatCracksMeUp says:

      My first thought was – why wear a fake camisole instead of a real camisole, but then I saw the part about just wearing it at work and taking it off for going out for the evening. A handkerchef size piece of fabric is easy to stuff in your purse for the rest of the evening; an entire camisole isn’t.

      I don’t think there’d ever be a reason to wear a belt/fake belt for part of the day, and then remove it for the rest.

      • Julia789 says:

        This would be nice because my office is way too hot in the summer. Going without a full extra layer but having a nice contrasting fabric in the front would be lovely. I have something just like this from a website http://www.cleavagecovers.com. They hand sew them and they’re lovely and come in many colors. Good for adding a pop of color to a boring outfit without a lot of bulk.

        Then again one of my friends at the office just safety pins a pretty folded scarf under her business suits. She has some with beautiful patterns, she picked them up at a thrift store for a dollar each and has about a dozen of them. They make boring business suits interesting.

      • magnetic says:

        My first thought is to minimize laundry. As long as you don’t spill crap on it, this thing could be washed once a week. And I am getting sick and tired of being required to wear two damn shirts all the time. Why can’t we have shirts that are actual items of clothing?

      • Wombatish says:

        I think I might like it because camis really do ride down and I’m constantly pulling them up.

        And it’s annoying/probably looks kind of trashy when I do it just out in the open without thinking out of force of habit.

  10. Cantras says:

    It’s seems silly, but it’s actually a great idea. Sometimes you have a shirt that needs an undershirt or something (or colour, that’s not unreasonable), and sometimes it’s far too hot to wear an undershirt.

    They go a little over dramatic and omg tragedy and omg camis are soooo harrrrd, but that doesn’t make it not a good idea.

    • Rectilinear Propagation says:

      I think that’s the direction they should have gone in to explain why this is better than camis. That and you don’t necessarily want the outline of another garment beneath your shirt.

      I can’t recall having any issue with camis fittings but I don’t like the lines some of them make beneath my shirts.

    • theycallmeGinger says:

      I’m with you. I’m proud of my rack but I don’t need everyone to see it at all times. I could buy a higher-cut shirt, but the fit is all wrong and looks schoolmarm-y. I don’t want to hide the girls, just the excessive cleavage. I use camis all the time, so this is the same but easier (and cheaper).

      I likely won’t buy it (I imagine a flapping dickie hanging out in front my shirt like a bib), but my first thought was “yes, that is a good idea.”

    Now Ladies- remember you have to show ‘just enough’ skin to land a man and prove you are screw-worthy but not so much that they want to give you cash afterward. Don’t forget to show off ‘the goods’ when you go out with the ladies after work but never show an inch of skin while actually at work. Always remember- it’s your responsibility to control what other people think about you and do to you- those poor little mens just can’t help themselves!

    Oh, please give me a break. How about we start viewing women as people and not merely a set of tits with legs- put there for anyone’s delight at decreeing her screwable or not?

    On topic- this looks itchy as hell.

    • Loias supports harsher punishments against corporations says:

      Humans, like every other mammal, are sexual beings. We have urges. They are there for important biological and evolutionary reasons. Primal instincts serve a purpose.

      From an evolutionary standpoint, it’s vital that men view women as objects with funbags. If they didn’t, we wouldn’t survive as a species.

      It doesn’t excuse proper ettiquette, but even if they don’t make it obvious, men will objectify you in their mind. It doesn’t mean they don’t respect you. It’s just a part of life.

      • herbie says:

        More evolutionary psychology bullshit. So men should run around raping women, too, to perpetuate the species? Or shitting in the middle of the office floor, to relieve the urge to poop? We are more than our urges. We can, do, and should control and manage our biology according to our reason and morality. You can train yourself to think of women as people first if you really give a shit.

      • Wombatish says:

        That’s what hormones and set mating seasons are for.

        Bulls don’t go “Look at the udders on that one!”.

        Humans are some of the only, if not the only, animals to have sex for fun. Breasts are part of the “sex as fun” idea.

        They are not an evolutionary aide to urge procreation, or we would have evolved past the need for boob jobs by now, rather than in the opposite direction.

  19. Kahn Soomer says:

    The logic escapes me here. The CamiSecret product wouldn’t be necessary if your breasts weren’t hanging out in the first place. Wouldn’t it seem logical to wear a top with a higher neckline if you’re embarrassed to show too much cleavage. On the other hand, this product should be required for those nasty old hags that insist on revealing their stretch-marked, liver-spotted breasts in the workplace. Ewwwwwww!

    • Cyniconvention says:

      Exactly what I said in the comments of the YT video about a week ago. Hag comment omitted.

    • Rectilinear Propagation says:

      The real customer for this just likes the layered look. Another possibility would be the woman gained/lost weight so now the neckline doesn’t fall where it used to anymore.

      It doesn’t make sense for the ad to imply that the woman bought shirts too low-cut for work on purpose. It also contradicts itself: It starts off saying that this is so you can look conservative enough at work and just take it off for evening activities but then shows the woman using it on her date anyway.

    • RayanneGraff says:

      Ew, there are some women at my work like that. I’ve seen more sun-damaged, saggy, medicare-eligible chests than I ever cared to see, thankyouverymuch.

    • Garbanzo says:

      It would be logical to wear a top with a higher neckline, if such a thing could actually be found in a store. The fashion tyrants have decreed that necklines are going to be low these few years and that those of us who like our shirts to cover our bras are going to have to wear tanks or camis under our shirts. And that’s all they’re selling.

  21. Pinkbox says:

    Commercials like this annoy me because of their shipping and handling tactics. They give you the oh-so amazing offer of three more for free when you place your order, but you have to pay additional shipping and handling for those three. For something they’re already adding. For three more strips of flimsy cloth that will take up hardly any space or additional weight.

    Gah.

  23. thewildboo says:

    I have something like this, but it’s built in to the bra. I’m actually wearing it now, and it’s exactly what’s needed to wear this shirt in polite company. I think it’s fantastic.

  24. RayanneGraff says:

    I’m thinking about making myself some of these, actually. I have a few favorite tops that are a bit too low cut & I always feel a wee bit uncomfortable in them. They tend to stretch out a bit & show too much boobage after I’ve been wearing them for about an hour & something like this would be perfect.

    Good idea, but no freaking way would I pay $10 + S&H for a few flimsy pieces of polyester.

    • Noadi says:

      Me too. I think I have some little silk scarves around that just need a bit of lace and fasteners. I like the layered top look but it usually feels really bulky and too warm in the summer.

And what if one tab pulls loose at dinner and you end up with a diagonal CamiSecret? A bit embarrassing. The product looks cheaply made, and they never mention what the material is made of.

    My first thought was, “What is a camisole?”

    It made me think of the SNL sexual harassment video.

    Because it’s about showing cleavage to specific people.

    Is it just me… or does that commercial imply that the lovely young lady cannot master the complexities of the safety pin?

    hmm… Really? I would just get paper clips and a cloth >> same thing and waaaay cheaper since i could just go buy a crappy shirt at the army store or a dollar store size does not matter if i am just gonna cut it

    This is actually a really good idea! As silly as it sounds, I would think about it. I work in healthcare with a lot of creepy old male patients and wear tank tops with most of my shirts for just that reason.

    Has anyone seen the “boob apron” parody yet?

    Yeah? So?

    These are for shirts that go too low and show your bra — which is all of them, if you’re short or too busty — but it’s too hot to wear a full cami, or you don’t want to mess up the line, or you just don’t want to layer two shirts.

    They’re only a ripoff b/c they only work with a very specific kind of bra, and large breasted women usualy don’t wear little spaghetti strap bras like the clips are designed for. I guess you can pin it in, but that defeats the purpose of the convenience of not pinning things to you underwear.

    Does anyone else notice these things look almost like thong panties without the back? the lace edging, pastel colors, etc. Just tape your panties to your bra and save $20!
