If you’ve found the perfect frock for an upcoming wedding or event, but are having trouble getting the right bra, slip or panties – look no further, we’ve got your back!

Underpinnings To Swear By

Lifesaving Bras

If you have a halter or a racer back dress, find a convertible bra that has straps that can be worn around the neck or crisscrossed. For a plunging neckline, find a style that has a low connecting wire which leaves the chest bare. The best bet for a backless dress is a self-adhesive backless bra.

Smoothing Panties

Some fabrics are more prone to revealing panty lines than others which is why investing in seamless boy shorts, briefs and thongs is essential to avoid a last minute panic. For especially clingy or sheer fabric, slipshorts guarantee a smooth and finished look.
