@Ellyson: If the dress is fitted to your body it will not fall down. I can promise you this. People struggle with strapless because they don’t have it properly fitted.

It’s definately a plus to be small chested in a strapless dress! I know a lot of friends that have done the strapless wedding gown thing and none of them were in danger of the dress actually falling down but I did notice many of them pulling on the dress throughout the night to keep it exactly where it was supposed to be.

My dress had a wide elastic band that buckled around the inside of the dress (kind of like a bra strap). It didn’t go ANYWHERE, plus, the band put the weight of the dress on my waist/hips instead of having it hang down from my chest. It was amazing (though not in any way comfy).

My dress is a corset so I don’t think it will be falling down. Most strapless dresses are fitted perfectly so they won’t move.

@Ellyson:  My dress has the same strap thing that MrsJJC’s dress had. I think a lot of a-line/ballgown dresses have them. Especially ones that have a very structured bodice.

@Ellyson:  It came with it, but I imagine a seamstress could add one in. It was basically a very wide (probably 3+ inches) elastic strap with bra-type hook-and-eye closures. It attached at the side seams and fastened in the back.

My dress had an internal corset built in.  There was absolutely no movement.  It felt very secure.

I’m not small chested and LOVE my strapless dress!  I think the part that really helps is that it’s a corset, I have no fear that it will fall down because that corset is tied as tight as possible!
