The under the dress essentials are the lingerie and other helpers that lie beneath and can be as important as the dress you put on . These underpinnings can make or break your look. As a stylist, I have a kit, and in this kit there are safety pins, clams, double sided tape and the biggest assortment of under the dress essentials (from spanx, to nude thongs, strapless bras and the cutlet inserts that go in them) you could imagine. I have to be prepared for every styling need – from a celebrity on a red carpet that will have no retouching and be seen from every angle to celebrities on a photo shoot in their lingerie who want all the lifts, tucks and proper coverage they might want. As you get ready for all your holiday parties it is imperative that you start to consider what under the dress essentials you might need for your dress. I tend to go with nude colored bras and thongs (find ones that are closest to your natural skin tone) and then consider the various multi way bras, inserts and spanx that can give you all the support you might need. This isn’t your sexy lacy underwear – this is the utilitarian stuff that will make everything you put on top look ten times better! I’m going to share with you all of my favorite under the dress essentials that can transform your look and give you that million dollar celebrity finish.
