You have found your perfect prom dress, now you wonder why it is something missing. Well, the undergarments that you wear does greatly affect your look, no matter how gorgeous the dress is. A special dress does require special underwear, be it a long line bra or a seamless shaper for a clingy dress.
So, best thing is to find first your dream prom dress, then look for the type of bra or body shaper that you need. Honestly, if you don’t have a very tight fit dress, you don’t really need a body shaper under your dress. Most teenage girls do not need that. However, if you are plus size, you can opt for a full body plus size shapewear, depending on your dress.
Backless Bra Or Shaper For A Backless Dress
Backless dresses make great a great gown. The issue obviously is the fitting bra. There are some different ways to go about it.
You can purchase a simple bra converter like this Veewon bra extender that simply drag down our back bra straps. I find it very ingenious. Plus you can use it with an existing bra.
Or, you can by an adhesive bra. Some are just adhesive cups, though I won’t recommend them for such a special night, especially if you have a bigger than a small bust. You just run the risk of them falling off.

Going Strapless Prom Dress
Like the wedding dress, prom dress make you look stunning when they are strapless. And they need great pieces of undergarmets. Think strapless bras that push up your bust a little.
What I like about this Carnival low back strapless bra is that it’s molded around your body, giving you the extra support that you need for a strapless dress.
You can pair it with a seamless mid-tight cut thighs shapewear from Spanx if you want, depending on the dress model.
Halter Dresses Undergarments
Halter dresses are pretty easy to find an undergarment for as many manufacturers are now making convertible bras. You either buy a bra with halter straps, either buy one that its regular straps can convert.
If you are looking for a body shaper that goes with a halter dress or one shoulder dress specifically, then things gets a little bit more complicated, as the only one that I know of is Va Bien firm control plunge bodysuit.
V Neckline Prom Dresses Underwear Solutions
I love the v necklines dresses. If it has no cut waistline, the loose fit around your hips, I would look for a shapewear for it. Just to get that fab look. You can read my post about the best low plunge bodyshapers for V cut dresses.
