Had somewhat of the same problem you might want to try a bra with it and pull the dress up just a little bit, that is what worked for me I didnt have it pulled up high enough

They’re not really cheap but I liked my David’s Bridal bra. It was more like a corset top so I didn’t feel like it was falling down all the time.

The David’s bridal corset tops are really great,  and they stay up really well, but they are a little pricey (around $80) I had mine from before so it wasn’t an expense now. If you didn’t want to spend that much try Amazon, they have a few that are similar but not as expensive, I couldn’t speak on their quality though.

You can also search “long line strapless bra” and find a bunch of options. Good Luck, your dress is very pretty by the way!

The bodice needs more support and is too tight. Ideally a strapless dress should stay up because the bodice and corselette are fitted to the body closely, not because the bodice is small enough to be unable to move.

You have 2 options, have a seamsteress build you in a corselette to your measurements (you need boning and cups, though you are an A cup, molded cups help hold the shape of the cup, which is right now sitting about a half and inch to an inch too low)…or purchase a well fitting long-line bra and have a seamstress use it like a corselette.

Either way, its a lack of structure in the bodice. 

As for a hoop…I am REALLY against them as they look odd when one sits. I would opt for a light crinoline that just adds a little volume…

I think it’s a nice dress and the right type for you. Yet the upper part is too tight, you don’t look too cmnfortable in it. Your should talk to a seamsteress. For the rest I think you look pretty in it.

I think it just looks like it needs to be slightly higher, but its a really gorgeous dress 🙂
