Trying to Prevent a Wardrobe Malfunction-Help

Recommended Posts

So here is my dress, becuase of all of the fabric in the skirt, it is really heavy.

Click the image to open in full size.

 

I was a bit worried about the strapless top, since I dont usually wear strapless, I was worried it would slide down and I would be constantly adjusting. The lady at the store assured me that since its so heavy and it sits perfectly on the hips, it will not slide down, which was true and I was happy.

 

I was at my parents house on Saturday and thought I'd try on my dress and practice dancing with my stepdad to see if its even possible to dance. I had no problems dancing, and the skirt swirls really pretty, but then i lifted my arm to do a spin and my boobs lifted along with my arm and the dress didn't. Luckily my stepdad is a bad dancer so he was looking at his feet the entire time and didn't notice, but I totally had a Janet Jackson moment. The problem is that the dress is so heavy, it doesn't move if i stretch up, so my boobs just go (while there's not much there, its still not something I want to do at my own wedding.).

 

So incredibly long story short-I need to do something to either make the dress move with me (Which i dont think will happen) or at least cover myself up a bit. I was thinking those stick on bras, but I know I'm going to be sweating buckets in the dress and i dont think they will stick. The other option is a stapless bra. Anyone else have this problem or has any ideas? I would love all input, including laughter.

Try the Nu-bra? I think that it is what it's called.

 

I used the stick on chicken cutlet bra thing and I was sweating my a$$ off! It is still sticky so I can wear it again. I don't remember the brand but I got it at the boutique when I got my dress for $20

Aw whats a little peep show at the reception? lol Poor thing. Are you wearing a bra under it? If not maybe try wearing one of those bras that goes around your waist too... It might hold the ladies in better.

I think I would be more comfortable with a full on bra, I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to sticky things, but if the bra doesn't work, I'm definitely going to try the nu-bra, I looked it up and it looks great.

I wasn't going to wear a bra under it, its so thick, I could get away with not wearing a bra, but I think that's what I'm going to do. I have a Victoria Secret 100 way bra, its the one that goes around the waist, but its in nude. I'm going to try it with my dress and if that works, I'll buy a white one of those. If not, I'll try the new bra. I think the problem is that i dont fill the dress all the way out, so there is a lot of space for the "ladies" to move, if I can fill that space with a bra, there might be less movement. We'll see, thanks for the advice.

Thank you, I love it too, otherwise I would have gotten rid of it a long time ago and bought something more beachy. Its miserably hot, my boobs pop out and it wont fit in a carry-on and forget carrying it, its the size and weight of a person. But its my dress and I'm sticking with it.

I had a really thin bra that went down around my waist. My dress wouldn't fit so we had to take it off and it worked. I didn't think that little amount of fabric would make such a difference. I hope it works for you. I LOVE your dress. You look like a princess bunny_4.gif

i'd call the store, or bring it in, and ask them what to do. maybe they can sew in something to make it stick to you (like the stuff that keeps strapless bras up)...worst case scenario, you get double sided tape - that stuff always works!

Peep Show... LOL well not really! I looked at the Nubra you can only wear it for 4 hours so that may not be a option. I would sew something into the dress if you can.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
