Awards season is upon us and that means the infamous red carpet. I love watching the stars parade down the carpet in their revealing designer clothes. However, you rarely hear the commentators ask “who are you wearing?” these days. Some complained it was sexist. What you do get to see and hear about though are wardrobe malfunctions. Here MWS we are all about avoiding wardrobe malfunctions even in real life.
Avoiding Wardrobe Malfunctions: Your Top Half
The trend so far this season seems to be the deepest, widest plunging necklines I’ve ever seen. So how do you keep it all in on top? The key to avoiding overexposure all begins with Topstick.
These wondrous little strips of double-sided tape come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and strengths. They are hypoallergenic, resistant to heat and moisture, even flexible and comfortable. But best of all they are undetectable and will hold your garment in place without damaging even the finest fabric.
Topstick can also hold your wig or toupee in place. So no embarrassing slips on the very top either.
OK, we have a great way to keep your garment in place but how about keeping your breasts also in place. Let’s face it, a gorgeous outfit requires the right undergarments.
At MWS we have a variety of solutions for lift and coverage.
Nippies are a new and improved version of our bestselling Nippies Natural. Nippies features an exclusive soft and flexible silicone for a more life-like experience. They come in three shades of adhesive or non-adhesive and are reusable. They are also “Paparazzi proof” which means they have a matte finish and won’t reflect light through clothing.
Another great product to prevent “nip slip” is Bunheads Smoothies. The reusable gel nipple concealers are so comfortable, you’ll forget you are wearing them. Peel the protective backing and press into place. They are available in a light and dark shade. If you won’t be on the red carpet, they also provide a smooth look under leotards, costumes, and everyday clothing.
For so many of those revealing outfits wearing a bra is impossible, but you still want lift and coverage. Try the Braza Reveal. It is an adhesive non-bra designed especially for plunging necklines and open-sided garments. There are five disposable pairs per package.
For a reusable option try the Braza Clear Reveal. It is a comfortable 100% silicone adhesive bra that keeps your bust and clothing in place. The Clear Reveal offers great temporary support under deep plunge, open back and open-sided garments. And it can be used up to 20 times.
Avoiding Wardrobe Malfunctions: Your Bottom Half
Those skin-tight, high slit wonders on the red carpet could be ruined by a simple panty line. So how do you get the no undergarment look but still maintain some modesty?
One of our best sellers at MWS is a Shibue Couture Disposable Panty. These are a peel and toss panty available in a box of 12. There is a silky smooth silicone adhesive to keep it in place. This panty is perfect for the high slit or side exposure garments.
For reusable coverage on your bottom half, try the Shibue No-Line Strapless Panty. This panty is held in place by a washable and reusable soft silky silicone gel adhesive. It is very comfortable and provides a smooth, no line silhouette. A Shibue makes wearing the impossible, possible. Available in nude and mocha.
You know men can have wardrobe malfunctions too. That’s why we have the Hibue. A strapless thong just for men. The Hibue for men is washable, reusable and adheres to the skin with a gentle adhesive. The Hibue comes in three sizes and a light and dark shade.
If adhesive isn’t your thing but you’d like some coverage without panty lines, try Commando. Commando comes in many styles for varying degrees of coverage. The line is made in the U.S. but is made out of luxe European microfiber for breathability. They feature the original commando raw cut finish and are elastic-free to eliminate digs, bulges, and panty lines.
