It’s prom season! And that means many girls are shopping for their perfect prom dress. While much of the excitement is directed at various prom dresses, shoes, and accessories. One thing tends to get left off that list: the undergarments. It’s understandable; after all, shopping for something that no one will see might seem a little less interesting than shopping for the rest of your outfit, but nothing will ruin a beautiful dress faster than VPLs (visible panty lines). So here are a few things you might want to add to your prom dress shopping list to ensure the most gorgeous look possible: Prom Dress Undergarments.

1.) Cut. We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that no prom dress looks good with exposed bra straps, and if you find one that does look good with exposed bra straps, good for you. Hold onto it because it’s probably the only one in existence. If you’re going to wear a strapless prom dress. You’ll need a strapless bra. The same with racerback dresses, low-cut dresses, and even backless dresses. You’ll need a bra that matches your dress shape to avoid it being seen. Underwear needs the correct cut as well. Otherwise, you’ll end up showcasing it to the world. Go for either full coverage or a thong for best results. Prom Dress Undergarments

2.) Support. The entire point of wearing a bra is for support. If you are one of those lucky girls that stays perfectly perky and in place without the help of a lady garment. This section of the article might not be for you. However, for the other 95% of us, you’ll need something that keeps the girls in place. One of the key elements to ensure you have the proper support is fit.

3.) Fit. A poorly fitting undergarment will not only look awful. It won’t be able to do its job either. Too big, and you won’t have the support you need. Too small, and you’ll have an array of extra lumps and bumps. Prom Dress Undergarments

4.) Color. The color of your undergarments might not matter as much. If you’re wearing a brightly colored gown or a light-colored one made with heavier fabric. However, if you’re wearing a dress made of thinner, more flowing fabric. The color might be seen through it. Don’t choose white or black, as it will still be seen; your best bet is to choose something that matches your skin color.

5.) Comfort. If you have the night of your life, you must be comfortable. Make sure you choose undergarments made of breathable fabric and aren’t pinching or scratching you in any areas. Remember, no one looks cute while picking a wedgie…no one.
