When wearing a strapless dress, you want to make sure that your bust measurement fits exactly.  If it’s too loose, you’ll have to constantly pull up the dress, and if the dress is too tight, it’ll be uncomfortable to dance in – and nobody wants that!

Opt for a dress with boning and padding, like most Azazie styles!  Boning and padding help provide structure to the bodice to prevent any sagging or unflattering drooping.

If you choose to wear undergarments under the bodice, make sure that your bra won’t show!  Take a picture of your dress, and ask a sales associate to help you find the perfect undergarment that will work for you!

Bring a shawl!  In case the evening gets chilly or if you are going to a church wedding and want more coverage, a light shawl that matches the color palette may come in handy.  Make sure you check with the bride about what is appropriate.
