@molywong:  Perhaps your seamstress can add a layer of soft, sheer organza or chiffon under the lace to make the shoulder strap feel soft and smooth against your skin, without affecting the appearance of the dress?

@molywong:  Maybe you could try a clear bandaid? The anti-blister padded kind? That probably won’t show under the lace…

@molywong:  How about something like moleskin? It sticks like heck and is skintone if you are lighter skinned.

I tried on a really itchy lace dress at DB and the consultant suggested adding a piece of ivory ribbon inside the straps.  She held up a piece of ribbon to show how it would look and I thought it blended in really well.  If you’re worried about changing the look of the lace, try a few different fabric options behind the strap to see if any would work for you.

Maybe some of the chafing stuff for runners might work? Sorry I can’t think of the name right now…

I would definitely go the “same color ribbon” route to solve this problem. Same color fabric would work well too! Good luck.
