No, this isn’t about looking 10 pounds lighter for the camera or how to pose. It’s something I believe many women forget whether they are wearing a backless blouse or an wedding gown. I see it all of the time. I would create a thought bubble over my head if I could.
Have you ever notice a bride wearing a lovely wedding gown; from the front the bride looks put together well. Then you see the back of the dress and your eyes are drawn to the distracting bra straps. It’s one of my wedding day pet peeves. Depending on the style of the gown a strapless bra will not suffice either. Please don’t wear the bra with the clear straps. The straps aren’t clear, I see reflection glaring against the skin of the bride.
Moreover, consider how low the back of the gown is designed. Yes, it’s beautiful , but much more flattering without the undesirable straps from a bra. Your goal should be to look absolutely flawless on your wedding day. Take the extra time and money to look for the best suitable under garment for your gown. As soon as you say, “yes to the dress” proceed on the hunt for your perfect brasserie. It may be simple as sewing cups inside your gown. If you are large up top this may not be the solution, but it may work wonders for others.
The solution to looking stunning in your backless wedding gown is a strapless / backless bra. There are so many out there from the cheapest to the most expensive . Adhesive strips are already sewn onto the bra. The more expensive the bra; the stronger the adhesive. With your cheaper bras you may get a few wears out of it before you’d have to trash it. You can wear the pricey ones if they are taken care of properly up to 25 times. Let’s see I’ve worn one on my wedding day, then again for my anniversary. That’s twice. I think it’s worth the money.
More of the brand named bras will come with silicone type sides that stick to your skin. (Be sure to test the silicone on your skin with a 2-4 hour wear test)The way it works is to make sure your skin is dry and free from any lotions or oils. Make sure the silicone tabs aren’t sticking to your clothing. The tabs need to stick directly to your skin. You will want to hold the tabs on your side as if they were normal straps to fasten. Be sure to hold them in an upward position for firm hold. This type of bra will cost around $ 35.00 – $50.00. The cost for beauty is usually greater than anything less.
Your pictures will look amazing! For years to come you will not fret over those unsightly bra straps. Remember this is your special day.
