5 Tips to Keep Your Strapless Wedding Dress From Falling Down

Our secrets to keeping your strapless wedding gown secure 

If you’re opting for a strapless wedding dress, you might be concerned about keeping it secure as you dance the night away. Strapless wedding dresses are timeless and sophisticated but it can be a real struggle to make sure they don’t fall down on your special day. 

These are our five top tips for making sure your strapless wedding dress stays up all night long. 

1. Choose the right fit 

The number one most important thing when shopping for a strapless wedding dress is getting the right fit. Make sure your wedding dress is tailored to your body and firmly fitted around your waist and bust to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions. Having a well-fitted gown will help to ensure that your dress stays securely in place. 

2. Invest in good support 

You’ll want to invest in good supportive underwear like a strapless bra or a corset to help provide extra support and structure – especially if you have a bigger bust. Look for undergarments that have boning or silicone to help keep everything in place for the duration of your wedding day. 

3. Fashion tape is your friend 

If you’re wearing a strapless wedding dress, you’ll want to invest in good fashion tape! Apply fashion tape along the bust and sides of your gown to prevent it slipping and sliding. Remember practice makes perfect so be sure to do a few trial runs before the big day to make sure you know what fashion tape placement is going to work best for you on your wedding day. 

4. Good posture is key 

Make sure you’re standing up straight through the duration of your wedding day to help your dress stay in place. Not only will your candid shots look so much better if you’ve been practising good posture, you’ll also provide natural support for your gown if you stand up straight with your chest lifted. Hunching can cause your dress to slip out of place increasing the likelihood of dreaded wardrobe malfunctions. 

5. Keep a dress emergency kit handy 

Create a dress emergency kit with essentials like fashion tape, safety pins and a needle and thread and keep it close by on your wedding day. It’s better to be safe than sorry and a wedding dress emergency kit means you can be ready to handle any last-minute wardrobe malfunctions in order to keep your strapless wedding dress looking fabulous all day (and night) long!
