Can I be real for a moment? When you walk, do everything on you shake, rattle or move? What are you wearing underneath your clothing to help control the movement? If you're considering making this dress then you should also consider your undergarments as well. For me I'm wearing a high waisted brief, which helps with control as well as legs rubbing together. I'm also wearing the Butterfly Plunge Bra sold at Ashley Stewart. The plunge bra is the style of bra you should be wearing with this type of neckline dress.
For me, wearing undergarments has become an important part of my daily routine. It really helps to accentuate any body type as well as unnecessary movement.
I'm tired of seeing women with either no undergarments on or the wrong undergarments on. It's just as important to look good underneath than what people see on the outside.
