I remember when I was 13 I completely ruined a beautiful tank top because it was too vulgar for my taste. The top had deep armholes so you could see about 2 cm of my bra. Shocking! It sounds exaggerated but in a small town in the 90s those 2 cm were like the scarlet "A" letter on your chest. So in the name my good reputation I decided to fix this little "mistake" in design. I cut, I sewed, I cut again and at the end the beautiful tank wasn't that beautiful anymore.
Now in my 30s lingerie became a significant part of my daywear. After graduation I worked for a high-end lingerie company and it changed completely my approach to intimate apparel. I am still a little bit prude when it comes to my wardrobe but now I prefer to "correct the mistakes" in design with lace and silk of high end lingerie instead of scissors and needles. And thanks to the constant fashion evolution it is possible to show some intimates without feeling exposed.
