Five Tips for Wearing a Strapless Wedding Dress
Bride or not, most ladies prefer strapless dresses, and they are the most common style you can find. Strapless dresses are beautiful and elegant, but can be hard to pull off sometimes. Here are 5 tips to help you look stunning in a strapless dress:
1. Avoid the Straight Cut
Straight cuts can make your chest look flat and wide; opt for a curvier cut, a V or heart shaped cut will look more feminine.
2. Avoid Shapeless Dresses
Pick a dress that will extenuate your curves and especially your waist, or try a mermaid dress, which is always an elegant choice.
3. Wear the Right Bra
Most strapless dresses come with a sewn in bra. For these kinds of dresses, you can look for silicone stick-on pads instead of wearing a bra. In any case, make sure your bra’s shape and color are the right match for the dress.
4. Pick the Right Size
Pulling your dress up all night is never elegant! You can either pick a tighter corset, or get it tailored before your big eday to make sure it holds on.
5. Transparent Straps
If strapless dresses are not your thing, but you still like the look of a strapless dress, get a pair of transparent straps. You'll get the feel of a strapped dress, and the look of a strapless one! You can also find bra straps that have rhinestones on them, which could add a touch of sparkle to your look. Also make sure the hanging straps you find on strapless dresses are always tucked in.
