Finding the right undergarments for any dress can be a challenge. Here are a few of my favorite undergarments that work perfectly under our convertible dresses.
Spanx Super High Power $38: I have found that some of my customers will frown upon wearing Spanx. Spanx is a necessity under any dress and for every body type! They tame your tummy and create a seamless, hourglass silhouette. Who doesn’t want that! The higher waist falls very close to your bust line, and when you wrap the dress, you can not see the line of the top of the Spanx.
Fashion Forms U-Plunge Backless Bra $40: This is a great adhesive bra option for our dresses. It is the deepest plunge, backless, strapless garment on the market. It has padding in it which offers the most cleavage and also comes with a detachable halter strap that lends additional security and support. This bra works really well for the Deep V style option. This bra also has a side clear sticky extension.
Nu Bra $35: This is another adhesive bra that works very well with our dresses. It is completely free of any strap extension. Washable, and reusable. Totally backless, strapless and invisible under any dress. It has a front closure for cleavage and lift. I tell my customers to wrap themselves in the style they are going to wear first, and then slip these on individually. (see video below) They do not even need to be clipped together. They stay in place and give you a smooth finish under your dress.
Hollywood Tape $10: The famous fashion tape! Easy-to-use, clear double-stick apparel and body tape. It is gentle on the skin, hypoallergenic and leaves no residue on fabrics. I don’t know about you, but I still can’t figure out how to use a safety-pin without it being seen. This is a much better option.
If you are busty and do not feel like any of these options will be good for you, your not out of luck! You can wear your strapless bra with our matching tube top!

Just like how every woman’s closet should have that little black dress, so should every woman’s closet host a convertible dress.
What is a convertible dress? A convertible dress is a dress that can be reformed into at a multitude of styles simply by changing the straps. You can transform the look of your neck, chest, back and waistline. You can twist and tie the dress into a halter neck or even go strapless to suit the style of the event.
Nuova Vita has transformed the convertible dress into a glamorous gown that can be worn for special occasions such as weddings to being converted to something sexy for a date night or girly for a fun night out and no one will think that it’s the same dress!
I pride myself on creating fashionable and elegant pieces that you will fall in love with as soon as you wear it. From the soft fabric to the variety of colors you can choose from, you will find that having a convertible dress in your closet will be the hero outfit that you can rely on every time.
The convertible gown has become so popular that I have even created a maternity line, for bountiful soon-to-be Moms who want to wear something that makes them feel beautiful and grows with their shape. Instead of being bored with wearing the same outfit over and over, pregnant women are able to change it up, by simply converting it to a different style.
Bridesmaids are grateful to wear a convertible gown that not only works for the bride’s best day but works for many more occasions thereafter.
Wear to a special evening out with your partner, a photo occasion, a trip to the theater or simply to wear something you feel pretty in.
Finding an outfit that not only fits well, looks spectacular, and feels divine and then being able to style it differently to the occasion and mood, is now available with Nuova Vita.

I believe that we are all so busy now days with work, family, friends etc. that just trying to plan what your are going to wear can seem overwhelming.
When I am planning what to wear for a long day ahead of me, the perfect outfit for me is wearing my black convertible cocktail dress. You can never go wrong with a little black dress. During the day you can pair your black convertible dress with a blazer, a pair of knee-high boots, and a fun colorful bag. Lace continues to be a big trend for fall so you can pair a lace top and just layer it over your dress and it transforms your whole look for a night out. Pair it with an amazing clutch, a pair of heels, diamond studs (a little sparkle never hurts) and add a pop of color with a berry lipstick. Now you are ready for a night out with your significant other or a girls night out!
I recently wore a lace crop top with my black convertible dress for a day time look for work. I paired it with a pair of Tory Burch flats, a Michael Kors gold watch, my Prada sunglasses, and my Jennifer Haley tote.
The possibilities with a black convertible dress are endless. It is so much fun creating all different looks with one dress!
