Fashion Fixes for Plunging Necklines

When your dress rental has a plunging neckline, then you need a simple fashion fix to make your dress look flawless. Your bra’s straps, back wings, and center gore may be visible underneath a dress with a plunging neckline. Read on for more information about how to replace your bra and still wear a plunging, high fashion dress.

The center gore is the string of fabric and underwire that join the two cups together at the front of your bra. When you wear a dress with a plunging neckline, you will need a way to replace your bra without showing the center gore. You can choose breast lift tape, a Reveal Bra, or fashion tape. These items will maintain the shape of your breasts, maintain modesty by preventing your dress rental from moving, and ensure that there are no straps or center gores to be seen through your dress’ neckline.

Whether you need a formal gown or a fun cocktail dress in Tampa, FL, call Lending Luxury for all of your dress needs. We can help style, accessorize, and fix all parts of your outfit once you call us at (800) 403-9848.

3 Curvy Girl Shopping Tips

Tips for our curvy shoppers from our curvy stylist ;)

1. Support the girls!

Look for bodices that will allow you to wear a bra, whether with or without straps depending on the amount of support you need! Before you even bother trying it on, check out the width of the straps and how low the back is. Is there sheer panels that the bra might show through? Often a nude bra will camoglauge nicely. I've been known to wear a black bra under black mesh without batting an eye!

2. Show off that waist!

This is the oldest trick in the book! Show off the smallest part of your waist, whether it's your natural waist or right under your bust. Draw the eyes there! Look for details on the gown like a waistband or the beginning of pleats or sparkling embellishments. In this case, we went with an empire waistband of beads and crystals!

3. Don't drown yourself in fabric!

Adding extra fabric just adds extra width. Look at these images, same model, two different gowns. The green dress has a lot more extra fabric around her waist and hips than the blue dress, making her appear wider on the left. While you don't have to go as fitted as the blue dress, I like to keep the fabric close to my body. It's a matter of choosing the right fabric too. Thicker fabric won't show off problem areas or cellulite like thin, silky fabric might. Look for thick jersey, polyester or satin.

Work Party Attire 101

Determining which dress rental you need for a work party does not need to be a difficult task. You can use the details of the party—such as the time and location—to help you choose the right outfit for the event. Continue reading for the basics in choosing work party attire.


Consider the Time of Day
Your outfit choice will likely change depending on when the event begins. For example, you can wear casual outfits during a daytime event. Choose an outfit close to what you would normally wear during work, such as tailored slacks and a silk blouse. If your work party is during the evening, then you can wear a cocktail dress or formal gown.

Consider the Location
The location of your work party will also dictate what you choose to wear. If the party is held at a local restaurant or in your office, then you can wear a typical work outfit. However, you should choose a designer dress rental if the party is held at a banquet hall or resort. High-class locations should be met with high-class, couture gowns.

Avoid Revealing Outfits
Avoid any outfits or cocktail dresses that are too revealing. A dress should not go much higher than your knees, and it should not show significant amounts of cleavage. Be wary of gauzy dress rentals that are see-through or have cutouts.

Maintain Professionalism
Above all, choose an outfit that still maintains your professionalism. You can still wear a formal gown or cocktail dress, but you should always look, feel, and act professional. You will work with the other party guests, and they should know that you can maintain your decorum at all times.

Cocktail Dresses vs. Semi-Formal Dresses

Choosing between a cocktail dress and a semi-formal gown can be a difficult decision. However, deciding which dress to rent may come down to the type of event you are attending. Watch the short video and continue reading to learn which type of dress rental is right for you.

Cocktail dresses are fun and flirty, but they may not be appropriate for all events. If your event invitation calls for semi-formal or formal wear, then you will want to choose a semi-formal dress. This will be longer in length and more appropriate than a cocktail dress for most events.

No matter your choice of dress rental, Lending Luxury can accommodate. We have a wide variety of cocktail dresses and semi-formal gowns near Tampa, FL. Please call us at (800) 403-9848 to work with our specialists before your next event.
