These dresses are so commonly worn. Yet, women barely know how to wear a strapless dress perfectly. You would be surprised at the number of mistakes made when wearing these dresses! If you are planning to wear a strapless gown soon and want to make sure you look your best, you must know how to wear a strapless dress the right way. Here are some things you should remember.
For one, remember that a strapless dress must always reach your armpits. Surprised, right? This is because most of the dresses you see seem to rest halfway down the bust. This is the worst possible way you can wear such a dress. While some people think that this gives a sexy look, remember that it is just downright awkward and makes it look like your dress will slip off at any moment. Therefore, you must remember one little thumb rule for any strapless clothing item. It should always reach your arm pits or should be within an inch of it.
Secondly, lingerie is very important when going for a strapless style. Do you think this one is obvious? Well, judging from the major lingerie mistakes made even at major events like the Oscars, it appears that it is not! Ideally, you should never go braless with such a dress. You can always find strapless and even backless bras to go with these dresses. These will spare you the awkwardness that might occur because of wearing visible lingerie or wearing none at all.
Thirdly, the way a strapless gown fits is very important. For one, remember that it should not be too tight right under your bust. This will make it look like it is encasing your breasts in a very prominent way. Make sure that the dress fits in a smooth, flowing way. It should fit perfectly around your armpits while gracefully curving down to the waist. Make sure that it is comfortably fitted around the hips and the upper thighs. The rest of it should be flowing or straight.
