It鈥檚 dress season 鈥 hurrah! Time to bust out all of those cute little frocks you鈥檝e had tucked away and get into one-and-done clothing mode (YES). But before you go ahead and accidentally ruin a perfectly good look with VPL, take a peek through your underpinning collection and make sure you鈥檝e got all the right lingerie pieces. Not sure what exactly those are? Scroll on. We鈥檝e rounded up all the tricks to make sure you鈥檙e covered underneath any dress shape this season.

Spaghetti Strap

1. Yummie Peyton Strapless Convertible Bra ($38-$42): For shoulders that are almost bare, go with a strapless option that looks smooth under everything. Wireless and super light for summer, this ultra-comfy bra also comes with optional straps, ensuring you鈥檒l get your money鈥檚 worth.

Short and Flippy

2. Hanro Stretch Modal Boyshorts ($38): Warm weather means bare legs, but if your dress is vulnerable to wind gusts, you鈥檒l want to keep everything covered underneath. Unless you鈥檙e looking for your Marilyn Monroe over a subway grate moment, a boy short is your best bet.

Low Cut

Brb, California. Off to a very different climate.

3. Fashion Forms Satin Adhesive Breast Petals ($12): Your main goal here is not freeing the nipple unintentionally. Rather than trying to find the perfect bra that won鈥檛 peek out on any side, just go with these disposable, adhesive covers. They鈥檙e soft and come in a pack of six.

T-Shirt Dress

4. Wacoal Body Base Brief ($28): To rock a clingy dress without any issues, a super smooth brief with no VPL鈥檚 will serve you well. This one鈥檚 not quite shapewear but will gently hug your body and disappear under clothes.

Off the Shoulder

5. Josie Natori Chantilly Lace Strapless Bra ($96): A flirty off-the-shoulder frock calls for a bra that鈥檚 equally pretty. This one is super feminine (and won鈥檛 embarrass you if your dress happens to slip down a little).

6. Chantelle Velvet Touch Full Coverage Unlined Bra ($74): You鈥檒l want something that blends with your skin tone under potentially see-through white. This super-smooth option comes in ivory, gray, pink, and a lighter tan.

7. Chantelle Velvet Touch Seamless Bikini ($24): The matching smooth panty to the full coverage bra, this underwear will fade away under white dresses. Plus, no lines!


8. Commando Classic High Rise Panty ($34): Under fitted sheaths or shifts, go for something higher waisted that smooths. With raw cut edges, these won鈥檛 show in front or back.
