Ah, the dreaded wardrobe malfunction. With almost every event or function we attend, we have to pick out the perfect dress, whether we spend hours shopping for it or simply reach for our classic LBD. No matter what we wear, we constantly face the fear of a wardrobe malfunction. Sure, celebrities must suffer the wrath of having their nip slips plastered across every magazine, but us normal people suffer as well. No one wants to show up to work the morning after the office Christmas party to the nickname Nip Slip Sara. No. Just, no. While wardrobe malfunctions come in many different shapes and sizes, none are as recurring and tragically embarrassing as the nip slip. Well, we say no more! These simple tips and tricks are going to keep your look on point!

Fashion Tape


Whether it’s a basic nip slip or a full-on wardrobe malfunction, fashion tape is every woman’s best friend! This is every celebrity stylist’s best kept secret. Fashion tape is basically a double-sided tape that is formulated to not harm the skin while it clings to both your skin and the fabric. The double-sided tape is super strong and will keep your dress perfectly in shape all night long.
