Finding your dream dress for a day at the races is hard enough but finding the most flattering, comfortable and suitable underwear for that dress can be even trickier! Don’t sweat it though – we’ve pulled together a foolproof guide that will solve all your underwear-for-outerwear problems.
[one_half_last]The Fitted Cut-Out Dress
While showing a sliver of midriff is totally on trend, showing your bra is not. Avoid this by choosing a simple bra that has a higher cut and sits neatly up under the breast.
If you’re wearing a fitted dress, disguise any lumps and bumps with a shapewear skirt that will firmly but comfortably hold you in. And as an added bonus, it will also prevent your dress from riding up.
[one_half]The Low-Cut Dress
Mastering the perfect cleavage is tricky when donning a low-cut dress with an exposed neckline. The solution? A strapless bra with a super-low scoop. The lower cut will ensure your bra doesn’t show, but will still give you the support you need throughout the day.
To smooth your silhouette and accentuate the waist, go with a higher-waisted shapewear option that sits firmly just above your natural waistline.

Halter, strapless, boat neck, one shoulder… all these dresses present the same problem: exposed bra straps. The best way to get around this is to invest in a really good strapless bra, and to ensure you’re comfortable the perfect fit is key. We recommend seeing one of our professional bra fitters in store – they’ll be able to help you find the size and style that’s right for you. You can book an instore appointment with one of our fitters via our online booking tool here.
If your dress is a slightly looser fit around the hips, then keep your underwear comfortable with a form-fitting boy leg brief that will not only keep you comfortable but will also hold you in.
