I've always thought sheer bras the sexiest because they highlight my shape, rather than concealing or shaping it as padded bras do. I don't want lingerie to overwhelm my figure or rearrange the appearance of my bust, I like accenting what's already there. The Nana does an exceptional job of this through it's uniquely light mesh. It's color isn't translucent exactly, it's more of a faded mauve or muted beige (both of which are soft colors to begin with). Against my skin tone, the material seems to disappear and the graphic black lines, buttons, and lace begin to look painted or tattooed on. The Nana gives the impression that there's a lot less bra and a lot more girl. This isn't a revolutionary concept for the broader intimates apparel industry, but for the smaller and more traditional world of full bust lingerie, the idea is unheard of.
