You can get special tape that is meant to be used on costumes or performance wear. Sticky Strips is one of the names. I used it during formal dances in high school to keep my dresses in place!

I would suggest Top Stick.  You can get it at any Sally Beauty supply store.  It is exactly the same as any of those fancier lingerie/fashion tapes at a lower price.

The biggest thing is just watch what you do. Make sure your dress is high and snug and be careful how you move your arms for the bouquet toss… that’s usually the moment it will happen if at all. Before you wedding, put on your dress and jump a bit, throw your hands up, party like a rockstar in your room and pay attention to what your dress does. If something get’s iffy… don’t do that move at your wedding 🙂

This ALMOST happened to me! It was mortifying. My reception dress arrived only a week before the wedding and with so little time the alterations weren’t perfect. I changed into the dress really quickly after our ceremony with the help of my Maid/Matron of Honor and coordinator, and didn’t have time to check how secure the top was. Then we went to the reception hall, went through the introductions, started our first dance that we had taken 6 classes for…And with the first spin, down went the dress. I gasped and held onto it so I don’t think anything showed (at least that’s what people assured me afterwards). Then I just heard the crowd laughing and clapping. After that I don’t know how we got through the rest of the dance. It was the longest three minutes of my life. What’s worse, I kept whispering to my husband “Stop! Change of plans! No more spins, dress is slipping!” , but he said “these are the steps I know so we must do them!”. Poor guy had practiced the dance so meticulously I guess he panicked too and couldn’t change on the fly.  Still, our guests were kind enough to tell me afterwards that our dance was wonderful, our classes were well worth it and when I asked if they noticed anything off they said no.

Below is that awful moment – even though I’m laughing I was dying of embarrassment inside.

The title of this post made me laugh! Yes, I was worried about it, but thankfully no flashing happened 😉
