I have used it before and really love it.  What type of fabric is your dress made of?  Most dresses should really fit on the waist which helps them stay up even if you are small busted.  If it’s a slinky fabric though, you might need the help of tape to keep it in place.

I am definitely self concious about going strapless, but my dress is perfectly fitted and I feel no need to pull it up or worry about “wardrobe malfunctions.” Consider having cups sewn in if you’re smaller – it’s much less worry anyway.

I’ve used it and it’s always worked great for me! But I’m not sure how well it would work on something as heavy as a wedding dress.

I’ve used fashion tapes for a lot of bridesmaids dresses, and it works miracles. The dresses were too big in the bust but didnt want to pay to alter a dress I was wearing once….fixed everything!

I’m not married, so I can’t speak for wedding dresses yet, but I’ve used fashion tape for a silky halter dress that liked to…expose…me and it worked wonders. I’ve also used it on a strapless dress.  It works, but I have to use  A LOT.  Be sure that you don’t have any lotion, etc on that area of the body. to help with stick

It does help with slipping but it isn’t 100% fool proof if you sweat etc. You can get it at fabric stores and probably most lingerie shops. I’d do a test run if you’re worried about it.

From my non-wedding experience, it works great!  However, it’s effectiveness does decrease the sweatier you get and the longer you wear it.

Oh! And I used the Hollywood brand, and got the multi-shape pack. It comes with larger panels of the adhesive tape designed to go on the sides of your torso, etc so that you get better staying power with strapless dresses.
