Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About the Visible Bra Trend

Q: The deliberately contrasting, deliberately visible bra used to be a fashion "mistake" but now seems to be mainstreaming. Can I wear this to work? How can I do it so I don't look like I got dressed in the dark? Is this just for hipsters?

Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About Shoes for Big Feet

Q: I have gigantic feet! Brands like Loeffler Randall and Belle by Sigerson Morrison used to make size 11, but I find fewer and fewer options. Are there other cool brands in size 11? Something between a Steve Madden and a Jimmy Choo? The brands at websites that cater to Sasquatch-footed women tend to be a wee bit obscure. Help!

Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About Grooming Etiquette

Q: If someone has spinach in her teeth, a piece of lint on her shirt or toilet paper on her shoe, am I supposed to say something? Sometimes I just let it go because I don’t want to make the person feel self-conscious. A: The true friend—or, better, the true kind person—always, always says something. By “says” I mean whispers conspiratorially.

Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About Keeping Hair Damage to A Minimum

Q: I have a pretty intense physical fitness routine (outdoor running, yoga, strength training, etc.), which means a lot of sweat, exposure to the sun and tugging on my hair to get it back into a secure ponytail. Any recommendations for keeping hair damage to a minimum? And preventing that flat-and-limp, sweated-on look? A: You kind of have to embrace the sweated-on flatness and limpness.

Readers Ask: Dear Lucky About the Best Non-Panty Line Underwear

Q: I don’t like to wear thongs! So … what’s the very best non–panty line underwear? A: I took this one to fashion director Anne Keane. Anne is a person whom you don’t even really want to ask fashion questions of; you just want to wear precisely whatever it is she’s wearing.
