How to stop your strapless wedding dress from falling down

How to stop your strapless wedding dress from falling down


Written by Katie Byrne


Worried about your strapless gown from slipping down during your wedding day? Fret no more...

 

#1 Pick a dress with boning in the bodice

Choose a wedding dress that maintains its shape even when its on the hanger. Boning in the corset area will lend to this structuring - meaning your dress is already off to the best possible start for staying in place.

#2 Get it altered

If your dress is slipping down because it's too big around the bust, enlist the services of a seamstress to make it a snugger fit. 

#3 Invest in the correct lingerie. Also, tape!

A well-fitting strapless bra will work wonders, whilst double-sided tape - you can find it in Debenhams or other similar stores - will help to hold everything in place that little bit more. (Ask your Maid of Honour to carry some spare tape so you 'touch up' as and when required throughout the day.)

#4 Add straps

If you're still not convinced, find out if you can buy some straps to match your dress. Many dresses have the option to have pretty straps added - and this could be the perfect solution if you're not entirely sold on your gown not falling down during the first dance!

#5 Have a second option for the reception

If you adore your strapless wedding gown and can't bare to add straps, consider buying a cheaper, strap-tastic dress for the second part of your celebration - or, at the very least, the dancefloor!
