Help? Do you know anything about using double stick tape for dress?

hobbitses :  I am a tiny chested lady so even with alterations, most formal gowns are way too big on me up there (I get what I call the shelf, where the dress sticks out but my chest doesn’t, so there’s a big gap and you can see down my dress)! Two-sided tape has saved me so many times, formal and otherwise! I also use it if I’m wearing something super low cut and want to make sure the sides of the cut stay in place.

Don’t do scotch tape as it’s not designed to adhere to skin. Go to Sally’s Beauty Supply (or any similar store/department) and get a box of toupee tape. It holds better on skin since it’s meant to be worn on skin, and it comes off easily when you’re ready to peel it off. Just place the strip wherever you want the dress to stick, and then peel off the backing and stick your dress to it. Works like a charm. 😉

I use Flash Tape body/dressing tape. I’ve worn it to weddings in the past when my dress didn’t fit quite right and it stayed in tact through the entire thing! Dancing and all! You can get it at any convenience store like a Rite Aid.
