    Well, not exactly what you asked, but I am flat chested and opted for straps so I could avoid the constant pull up. If it’s tailored really really well, it shouldn’t slip too much, but even the best of strapless dresses have to be pulled up from time to time, especially for us small busted gals.

    Perhaps put the straps on when you start to dance so you don’t have to worry about pulling it up then?

    Yup, mine did. It fit well in the beginning, but as I got sweaty and it stretched out and started slipping. It could have been fixed if I had taken the time to go into the bathroom, unzip my dress and pull it up and reposition it. I guess I didn’t want to take the time to do that on the wedding night, but it probably woudl have helped me be more comfy!

    I added a halter strap for the reception….. But I without the strap I had some serious boobage going on because my dress would get pretty low! Fortunately my chest is small enough that during photos and ceremony I didn’t look to skanky!

    @Bells,  I had a strapless and am small busted.  I had my seamstress add cups (yay boobies) then she took the dress in so basically the weight was sitting on my hip bones and the dress didn’t slip at all!  Additionally I had a sash but don’t think that helped at all.  I swore up and down I would not get a strapless dress due to prior experiences however I LOVED my dress and am glad I went strapless, hope that helps.

    I didnt think that it did but I have seen pictures where it kind of looks like it was. But I was never pulling it up or felt like I needed to adjust it. I had a seatbelt strap like thing attached to my dress right underneath my boobs that hooked in the back and that helped it stay up a lot.

    @PitBulLover: Yea, a waist stay–these are really helpful! OP, if your dress doesn’t have one, you can probably get a seamstress to put one in.

    Oh man! Another thing to worry about.

    I kind of figured since my dress is a lace up, maybe I’m ok? maybe halfway through I’ll just have one of my girls tighten me up again!

    Not married yet but I did my bridal portraits which put me in my dress for a good 5 hours, with plenty of awkard movements :). I can happily say that it did not slip even a little! Its a zipper back with a seatbelt and fits me VERY well. My alterations lady did an amazing job. She added an extra clip to the seatbelt part to really hold me in there. I didn’t wear a bra. I’m hoping I can say the same for the wedding day which will double the amount of time I’m in the dress!

    Small bust here, but I didn’t do a strapless dress.  FWIW, my friend which DD’s kept pulling her dress up too.  If the top of your dress has a solid cage of boning that rests on your hip bones and can’t possibly slip down, you should be OK.  I had a strapless cocktail dress at the rehearsal dinner w/ that type of construction and everything stayed put.  Size ‘er tight!

    I really hope this won’t be an issue for me, but it probably will be since most strapless clothing does not seem to agree with me–hate the slipping! Thanks for all the great tips above. I might have to use some of these at my first fitting.
