Are you able to maybe alter it and put a satin on the inside as a liner, so the rubbing won’t irritate your skin?

I’m sorry that I am of no help, but that was something that turned me off on some dresses. The beading was under the arms or rubbing me somewhere and I couldn’t put up with that irritation.

The only thing that I can think of is that tap that they use when you have a losse and low shirt on to tape it to your skin and not show your boobs. Or maybe using a soft fabric on the inside of the dress.

What about some type of anti-chafe potion like bodyglide?  What about putting some type of athletic tape on the part that rubs, where you cannot see it?

I like the idea of an anti-chafing product.  You could also try moleskin, like what people put into shoes to keep them from rubbing and causing blisters.

I was thinking tape as well… Undecided

what about using some of that anti-blister silicone. They sell it at the drugstore with the foot products. It is like a mini-deoderant stick, but with silicone, not deoderant. YOu use it to prevent blisters from forming. It works really well, and I bet it would work on your back. And it is clear and leaves no marks so you don’t need to worry about staining your dress.

What about not using double sided tape, just regular tape. You don’t really need the dress to be stuck to your body, right? You can just put the sticky side of clear tape on the inside of the straps that are rubbing on your skin to create a clear smooth lining.

I don’t know if this would work on your dress but, one trick I’ve had costumers use back in the day was dental wax, it’s somewhat clear (kind of opaque-ish but colorless). You take a little ball of it and basically form it around the irritating parts it pretty much lasts all day. Dental wax is the same thing kids use to put on their braces (I never had them but that’s what I was told). I hope that makes sense.
