With the warm temperatures on the horizon, dresses are the perfect way to stay cool, comfortable & cute, but often pose a threat to our usual undergarments.
Strap on your best for spring & summer with these helpful hints:
- Opt for thick straps with a V-neck. Select a sunny style with shoulder-width straps & a V-neck to open up your neckline and avoid feeling frumpy. Even if the straps criss-cross in the back like the striped dress displayed here, you can adjust your bra straps to match the lines of the dress while leaving them plenty of wiggle room underneath.
- Go strapless. Every year strapless bra design gets better & better, from stronger adhesive to bandeau designs that actually stay in place & are pretty at the same time. If you don’t need the support of a strap, this could be a silver lining to your sundress summer.
- Throw a light layer on. Using a light layer such as a breathable cotton cardigan, blazer or denim jacket will keep your shoulders covered & free from strap exposure. The key to layering with a dress is fit. Make sure the design in question is suitable to your shape for a polished & seamless look, even if it means a quick trip to the tailor to get it right.
