Dress Tape?

Honestly, I think it sounds like you need a new tailor- not tape.  A good tailor can fix this-  it’s not that your dress is too structured.  Most wedding gowns are, and alot of girls even get extra boning added.  

Also, having to tape myself in and out of a dress all night sounds like a nightmare.  Would you even be able to enjoy yourself without worrying about the tape failing and your breasts popping out all night?

My ignorant thought-process says: get thin velcro, dress tape one side to you, and one side to the dress.

misstomorris :  doesn’t work. Velcro has a better bond to itself than to skin. It’d peel of the skin but stay velcroed shut. Even more so if she sweats.

bibliophilacticbee :  I was thinking skin > dress tape > velcro > velcro > dress tape > dress

But I don’t know anything about this either. I’m also considering bustling my own dress tongue-out

allielieberell :  My seamstress once said to me that a properly altered wedding dress would NEVER need any kind of tape EVER. She is the former seamstress to the Queen of England so I take her word on that lol. Does not sound ideal at all! Maybe get a 2nd opinion.

MsBeer :  Agreeed!

allielieberell:  Where are you located?  I am certain the bees can give you recommendations on tailors, for a second opinion.

Unzip the dress, then pull the dress up over your hips. If you can’t do this alone, sit on the toilet facing forward while a friend holds up the back of the dress so it does not hit the floor.
