@WillowTreeWade:  I can’t imagine tape working. I had my seamstress sew velcro on to connect the inside of the dress to my longline bra. It was awesome.

@WillowTreeWade:  I’ve used fashion tape for gaps on the top of dresses or to keep straps from slipping and it works ok, but will def not hold the dress up. That is not a suitable solution, tell her to fix it.

If you have Irish Stepdancers around you, call the dance studio and see if they will sell you sock glue. I plan on using some of my sister’s for my wedding  this weekend. I’m using it to keep my dress bodice to lay flat against me. I doubt any glue or tape will keep your dress ‘up’ because that’s all in the structure of the bodice.

My cousin used double-sided tape to keep her straps from falling down but I highly doubt it would hold up a strapless dress. Your seamstress needs to make the top fit more snug.

My seamstress recommended toupee tape! Think about it, you need to attach a fabric thing to a skin surface… haha. The go-to brand she pointed me to is Topstick.

My dress designer gave me some kind of special double sided tape stronger than anything i could imagine.  he told me only to use a tiny little piece because it was so strong, and he wasn’t kidding.  I think the right tape might do the trick.

i think wedding dresses are typically too heavy and the double sided tape can’t hold that weight.  i’ve used it in the past but only to keep the low cut sides from moving (didn’t want a boob to pop out the side).  this material was a crepe like evening dress, so very lightweight.

you need your seamstress to alter the top so that it stays in place.
