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.

As you shop for the prom dress of your dreams, there’s a lot to keep in mind as you start to complete the look. For starters, accessories, shoes, hair, make-up, and your underwear or shapewear. Many girls forget that prom dresses come with unique styles and designs that won’t pair well with our everyday pair of undies and, you shouldn’t be afraid to stunt a sexy style on your prom night! 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 prom dress:

Choosing a Bra

Once you pick a prom dress for prom, you want to start to think about what kind of bra you’ll need to wear. If the prom dress of your dreams is lacking support up there, you might not want to go braless or have to worry about any mishaps happening.

First, you’ll want to choose a bra that works for the unique cuts of your dress that 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.

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

Flesh-Toned Colors

When you’re taking pictures, you don’t want your dark or bright-colored underwear to make a surprise appearance. 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 to prom.

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 prom outfit. It also has the power to leave you feeling sexy, smooth, and curvy! Giving you the option to hide the parts of you you feel insecure about in your prom dress.

If you already feel great in your prom dress, you may not need any shapewear. It’s not for everyone but, it’s a great option for some!

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.
