It’ll be fine if it fits right.  I’ve worn other strapeless dresses that werent fitted to me, and found myself tugging at them.  But my wedding dress was nice and snug around my core, I didnt have to tug at it not even once.

I was just joking when referencing my boobs holding it up, it’s the structure of the dress. 🙂 Nothing to do with the ladies, though they’d take credit. Lol. And I second the long-line bra, at least for me it helps me be more comfortable in a strapless bra. It doesn’t feel like all the pressure is this big awkward band.

My dress was strapless and given the material and cut I was unable to wear a strapless bra. My seamstress sewed in some 1.5-2inch bands that hooked together in the back. It provided plenty of support and I never had to make any adjustments. I’d say when the time comes be particular about where you get your alterations.

My dress was strapless and I never had a problem with it shifting. I dont think I had to pull it up once the entire night. As long as it fits properly you should not have that problem. Good Luck!!! 😀

I have often worn strapless dresses and don’t have problems with them. I belive that it does depend on a few things though.

I make sure that have each strapless dress I wear tallored without a bra. This means that it fits me perfectly. With my wedding dress I did this and I don’t think I even adjusted all night and it was a heavy dress.

Also, if you are rather flat chested it will be more likley that it will slip down.

The more structured that dress is throughout the more likely it is to stay up. If you have boning or other heavy structure around your waist it will help that to stay in place which will in turn help the top to stay up.

I find that I adjust more with dresses that are light weight.

I agree with a PP that if the dress is fitted properly to your body it will not fall.

I’m slim with teeny tiny boobs -seriously- and did not have to pull at my dress at all. Neither did my dress have any boning.

And no it was not so tight that I could not breathe or sit down. I was very comfortable in my dress all night!
