A Kmart shopper has faced a time-old fashion dilemma while browsing the store's spring wares.

After falling in love with a $25 blue dress, they were left wondering how to wear the tie-front style without leaving their underwear out on display.

"Has anyone bought this dress and worked out how to cover your bra in the middle? Thanks!" the shopper asked in a Kmart fan Facebook group.

The trendy tie-front has been a feature of tops and dresses for several seasons, and while it's perfect for warmer weather it can pose a problem when it comes to concealing the wearer's bra.

Fellow Kmart fans piped up in the comments with suggestions for avoiding a wardrobe malfunction.

"I wear strapless [bras] or those stick on bras from Kmart," wrote one.

"You can wear the 'U' bra, it has a deep plunge on the cleavage area," advised another.

"You could always get a really good cute bikini top and make it part of the whole outfit," added a third.

Other Facebook users were simply keen to get their hands on the Short Sleeve Tie Front Dress, which was declared "so cute," "so pretty".

"I need!!!" exclaimed a fan.

But one commenter was on the money when they shared an insider tip for preventing a peekaboo bra moment.

"I've seen a hack thing where you tie the middle of the bra around the little bow bit," they wrote, linking to a YouTube video by Naomi Boyer.

Indeed, in her video, Naomi demonstrates how to quickly and easily knot the ties of her top to hide the front of her black strapless bra.

Problem, solved!
