Comfort of Halter dress?!?
Posted 05 January 2009 - 08:39 PM
Anyone have experience or advice? I really don't ever wear other halter style clothes so I'm not sure how I'll feel after having it on that long. Is it something to actually worry about, or not really? Was anyone uncomfortable becuase of a halter top?
Thanks... and sorry for the rant...

I don't know how busty (hee, that word cracks me up), but I"m not small. And I was totally comfy in my halter. It hooked in the back.
Some tips: if it hooks, don't make it hook so tight that it tugs at your neck. Keep it comfortably loose. If you're standing on the alterations platform and you can feel the pressure of the halter on your neck as you turn your head from side to side, it's probably too tight. When you get alterations done, you put the dress on, position it around and then they pin it. It's not going to sit just like that for the duration of your wedding day. It's going to slide and shift, so if it's tight now, it will be really tight while you're dancing the night away.
Technically speaking, the halter (the part that goes around your neck) is NOT supposed to hold your boobs up. That is the purpose of the bodice. If you have to, consider having your seamstress put some boning and semi-rigid cups in your dress. You have a mermaid style so those alterations will be in keeping with your dress.
Alternatively, get a good bra with a small halter strap that can hide under the halter of your dress. Or even have the seamstress put a strap on the cups in your dress.
