How to Choose The Best Underwear and Shapewear for your Prom Dress

Hey AMARRA Babes,

Prom season will be here in no time and, you know what that means? It’s time to fall in love with a dress, finalize your outfit details, and start thinking about how stunning you’re going to look on your big night.

However, as you shop for the dress of your dreams, there’s a lot to keep in mind as you start to complete the look. For starters, there are accessories, shoes, hair, make-up, and most importantly, your underwear or prom dress shapewear.
Many girls forget that prom attire comes with unique styles and designs that won’t pair well with your everyday pair of undies. From gorgeous open backs to high slits and skin-tight fits, there are a ton of styles that need specific underwear or shapewear to help achieve the flawless look you are hoping to achieve.

Here is everything you need to know for choosing the best underwear and shapewear for your outfit:

Choosing a Bra

After picking your dress for prom, the first question to ask yourself is, what kind of bra will you need to wear with it? It is because if the dress of your dreams is lacking support up there, you might need a bra that will give you enough support to make you feel comfortable.
Also, the bra that you’ll choose should work for the unique cuts of your dress and won’t disrupt the style or look.
Thankfully, there are several bra options out there that will leave you feeling supported and secure. Some dresses even come with a built-in bra, so you don’t have to worry about this step.
Apart from these, there’s one other thing that you should consider while purchasing the right bra: the necklines and detailing of the dress. Let’s discuss this in a little more detail.

Consider The Neckline and Details

Sometimes, the unique and beautiful neckline is what makes us fall in love with a dress. A stunning neckline has the power to enhance your natural beauty and leave you feeling radiant and sexy on your prom night.
However, not every bra will work with every dress. If you have a lower-cut dress, a standard bra would show through the cut and take away from some of the remarkable beauty of the neckline.
The same goes for an asymmetrical neckline or off-shoulder neckline. These fun necklines are gorgeous and unique but come with some challenges when choosing a bra.

Usually, a strapless bra would do the trick for these types of necklines. However, if you have an open-back design, you won’t be able to use one on THE night. A great option that will leave you feeling worry-free is a sticky bra. Sticky bras come in different styles and variations and are open-back friendly!

No Bra? No Problem!

If you don’t think wearing a bra is the right move for your outfit, you shouldn’t have to wear one.
However, you will want to make sure you are secure and supported all night long to ensure you have a worry-free night with no undesired accidents.  

Pro Tip: We recommend purchasing some pasties or nipple covers to get the coverage you need to make sure you feel your best at prom.


When you’re taking pictures, you don’t want your dark or bright-colored underwear to make a surprise appearance. That’s why finding a pair of underwear that is flesh-toned is your best bet with any color dress!
All you’ll need is a pair of flesh-toned underwear that fits you well and is comfortable. This is the best way to ensure that your underwear won’t show through the dress, especially if you have a lighter fabric dress you are wearing.

The Power of Seamless Underwear

Seamless underwear is a lifesaver, especially on prom night! They are designed to sit on your curves and hug your body perfectly without showing any unwanted lines. This is particularly important when you’re wearing a tight-fitted dress or a silk fabric.
Consider purchasing a pair of flesh-toned seamless underwear before your prom night. It will leave you feeling worry-free all night long about pesky unwanted lines showing.

Sexy in Shapewear

Never underestimate the power of great shapewear. With the right shapewear, you can be confident, secure, and curvy. If you are worried about the way a particular part of your dress sits on your body, shapewear can help smoothen out all the unwanted bumps.
Shapewear comes in different shapes, sizes, and styles and can be a great way to add a finishing touch to your outfit. It also has the power to leave you feeling sexy, smooth, and curvy!

Seamless high-waist panties and strapless corset-style shapewear have become favored choices for formal occasions, highlighting a slender waist and giving you an elegant hourglass figure. These options are especially effective when paired with mermaid or strapless ball gown dresses.
Remember, AMARRA Babes, you only get one prom, and you deserve to be stress-free all night long. Planning out your underwear and shapewear in advance can help you feel secure and ready to dance the night away.
