Woman's Horror After Realising Beaded Top Makes It Look Like Her Nipples Are Out

So, you've spent hours looking for the perfect outfit to wear in the morning. You're feeling confident, sassy - you are looking the best you have in years.

But then while you're out, you start to notice some strange looks - people keep staring at you, and it's not the 'oh yeah, she looks great' of stare either, it's more a 'did she get dressed in the dark' kind.

Well, that's exactly what happened to one unlucky shopper when she was snapped wearing a jumper which had unfortunately placed beads, making it appear as though she was wasn't wearing a bra.

But rather than ditch the outfit and pretend it never happened, the unnamed woman took to Reddit and shared a photo of her wearing the beige jumper with two beads, one on either side, appearing to sit just where her nipples would be.

To show the true effect, she then posted a second pic with her hoodie zipped up - giving the impression she had fairly stiff nips.

Since it was posted on the thread, the top has been labelled a fashion disaster, with one person describing it as: "The shirt you can't wear anything over, unless you want to look like you have permanent pokey nipples."

Another user was stunned the design flaw hadn't been spotted before it made it to the shop floor, writing: "Those designers absolutely knew what they were doing.

"The amazing thing is this actually passed several people before it was sent to manufacturing and even STILL made its way into a store."

A third person then added: "It looks bad both ways. one looks like nipples, the other way something is attached to your nipples."

While another joked: "The top just looks like an ordinary sweatshirt. Not sure what so incredibly ugly about it. Maybe you don't like the colour?

Still, there are stranger fashion choices you could make. Earlier this month a group of models were spotted showing off some new designs at Ultra Festival in Miami, where they were no doubt turning a few shocked heads.

The outfits are the brainchild of alternative swimwear and fashion designer Joel Alvarez, who often uses body tape for his unusual fashions for his company, The Black Tape Project.

On the company's website, Alvarez explains where the idea stemmed from, writing: "One day in 2008 I was a rookie photographer who was working with a model that suggested I use electrical tape [on] her for the last look.

"I honestly had no idea why she would want this but to make her happy I attempted to use this tape as wardrobe. Essentially I just wrapped her in black electrical tape!"
