Backless dress question

Recommended Posts

For those you have worn or plan on wearing a backless dress what did you wear for support? Has anyone used those push up adhesives from Victoria's Secret? I am wondering if they even work or not. I am wearing a backless dress and getting nervous about how to make sure everything stays in place. Haha. But seriously any advice will help... what should I look for?

Hi, Im wearing a backless dress however my dress also has thin straps as well so its able to be pretty supportive already in itself really. However, if you dont have any type of straps whatsoever ,then eys the push up bra/adhesiveswork very well from VS Ive bought some for strapless dresses before. The bra adhesives from Saks Fifth Ave( lingerie dept) are also great. I also recommend asking your seamstress/bridal salon or the person doing your alterations what they suggest as well for your specfic dress...

Be careful when wearing adhesive bras.... i wore one to a formal event once, and the sticky didnt work last minute, so i had to use duck tape to hold it on.... i kno i kno very classy blush2.gif, but if thats what you are thinking of using, try it out first!

I bought a bra from walmart called "shantini lite". It was only $17. Much cheaper than the victoria secret one. It stays on great. I plan on testing it on a hot day too. A friend of mine said she wore one on a really humid day to a BBQ & it stayed on fine. It won't lift, but it will create cleavage by holding them together.

You can always have your seamstress sew on bra cups onto the dress...I have done that to all my bridesmaid dresses that I have worn in the past and I love it no worries at all.

I have a backless dress and this is all that I'm wearing, just in case - although the material for my dress is quite thick and the top has straps too that provide support...Hollywood "Cover Ups" Reusable Nipple Concealers

depending on how low the backless part goes, they also make bras that instead of clasping in the back, they criss cross around your stomach and clasp around your waist...they are surprisingly supportive

I would see if you can add cups to your dress.

 

I found that the stick on cups weren't very supportive for my girls, but if you are smaller busted they might work. (I'm a full D)

 

You can also look at getting the double stick tape.

Yeah I am a full D too and now thinking a backless dress wasn't the greatest idea. Oops. I have the cups built in but still scared of them falling out due to lack of support!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com

    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
