This dress was bought when I graduated from junior high so it’s an oldie but a goodie. I actually didn’t wear it for a long time but then I decided to alter it by hand and now it’s about two sizes smaller and a couple of inches shorter than the original version.
What is quite tricky about this specific style is that the straps are quite narrow and that is why I SHOULD ideally wear a strapless bra with it. This however was not possible for my bra wardrobe has no strapless bras in it (major fault, must be corrected, any suggestions?). What I wore instead was my Curvy Kate Smoothie since it is after all a nude bra and the shape suits this dress really well. The nude straps that could be seen didn’t really bother me since they were the same colour as the dress.
When you’re wearing a neckline such as this (almost square-y, low-cut) you must wear either a balconette bra or a strapless since plunges and full-cups usually tend to come higher up than this kind of neckline. I have not tested out this Wonderbra’s Ultimate Strapless nor Freya’s Deco strapless longline but I have heard a lot of good things about them so these could be good alternatives for my Smoothie. The colours are also perfect even though my dress wouldn’t necessarily require a nude nor a white bra because of it’s firm cotton fabric. As I mentioned before the quality of the fabric must always be considered while opting for the right bra. If you had a dress this style in a thinner fabric you could probably go for e.g. Cleo’s Lucy in white for it’s nice shape and low cut cups. However it’s all white and if you happen to have a bit darker skin tone you should consider something darker with a similar cut.I hope you all have a great weekend ahead of you. It’ll be 22 C degress tomorrow here in Oulu so I’ll definitely be out in the sun, I suggest you do the same!
