Rachel Zoe Studio is on a different level when it comes to styling gorgeous gowns for the red carpet. Their expertise is especially fine-tuned when it comes to the underpinning department, which is the secret behind getting invisible panty lines, avoiding wardrobe malfunctions and pulling off a strapless backless dress. 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
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.
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.
For a bodycon cocktail dress or tight satin gown, a one piece bodysuit will smooth the fabric so you look polished from all angles.
A simple cami or tank should be in everyone's wardrobe to wear with a transparent sundress or sheer blouse. For a plunging neckline or a backless halter, try doing an all-in-one layer.
Tricks Of The Trade
If you have these underpinnings on hand at your next fancy event, you'll be able to convert a regular bra into a racer back, avoid TMI with the no-bra look and defy gravity for an appreciated lift.
