You have the perfect homecoming gown, the ideal shoes, so what are you going to wear under your dress?

This might seem pretty trivial when shopping for homecoming dresses, but it’s actually really important. No one wants bra straps and panty lines peeping through and taking attention away from your gorgeous gown. 

If you’ve chosen a halter or strapless homecoming gown, the best thing to do is get a sticky bra. A lot of lingerie and chain stores stock them and while it might feel a bit strange initially, it won’t fall or lose its stickiness no matter how much dancing you do. 

If you’re considering thick strapped homecoming dresses for sale, a normal bra will be just fine. Just remember to try it in on before you buy, especially if the straps are crisscross or racer back. 

And if your dress is low-cut, you’ll need some double-sided fashion tape. It’s also a good idea to dance about a little bit when trying your undergarments on to make sure everything remains in place. 

If you’re pondering about buying silky homecoming dresses for sale with simple silhouettes and V-neck fronts, you’ll want a plunge-style bra. This type of undergarment won’t peek out the top of the plunging neckline. You can pair the bra with a pair of girl briefs with higher lace waist to avoid underwear peeping between high slits and for greater comfort.

What about a cross-back homecoming gown? Well, backless and cross backs have become pretty popular so the best type of bra for these styles is, again, a stick on type. Seamless adhesive bras will remain in place all night long but do avoid slathering on lotions or perfumes where the bra is going to stick. Many of the sticky bras clip together in from giving you extra support and comfort and you can then angle the cups however you like before placing the clips. As for underwear for these types of homecoming dresses, stick to something that doesn’t have a lot of fuss and seams. 

Maybe you’d rather wear a sequin-type short dress? They’re great for showing off legs and shoulders and for additional shape, you can wear push-up bras. For short dresses, be sure to wear a fuller panty so on the off-chance your dress rides up, you won’t be bearing all to everyone around. Full coverage doesn’t have to be boring as there are loads of pretty styles available.

One shoulder dresses can be difficult to accessorise and while they offer a fair bit of coverage, they can still be sheer. You can match a strapless bra to your skin tone for these types of gowns and even choose a bra with a slight push up for extra volume. 

For one shoulder, bare back homecoming dresses, you’ll definitely need an adhesive bra. Try looking for a style with extra tabs on each side for additional security and comfort. You can match your underwear to your dress but be sure to choose completely seamless. 

What about curves?
If you’re a little curvy and worried about rocking a strapless homecoming gown, there’s no need to worry. You can opt for a gorgeous plus size gown and pair it with the perfect undergarments. For fuller busts, choose strapless bras with moulded cups and higher centres. The sturdy back will keep your breasts lifted and keep them in place while you dance the night away. As for thigh and tummy shaping, Spanx are the way to go. If that’s not your style, a pretty pair of underwear will help you feel confident and comfortable.

Finally, if halter homecoming dresses are what you’re considering, keep in mind that a traditional bra strap is going to show in the back. A halter bra or well-fitted strapless bra with a strap worn around the neck can do the trick. Choose smooth bra cups and go for low-rise girl shorts to avoid any lines showing.
