One of the best ways to turn heads this season is with a deep plunging neckline dress. I noticed many of the dresses worn to the Emmy’s this year had deep plunging necklines.
If you have a wedding coming up, or an event you can create this look with your convertible dress.
Please view the video as well as step by step instructions.
1. Step into dress or place over head so that the sashes are facing the front.
2. Pull dress down low so you can see your belly button.
3. Take sashes over the shoulders and bring sashes down the back and create desired back design
4. Bring the sashes down and around the waist and tie and/or tuck in front or back of dress.
You can show as much cleavage or as little cleavage with your convertible dress and truly create a style that you feel comfortable in.
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!

Maternity photos are a wonderful way to document your life during pregnancy. Hopefully, you’re enjoying the glow of pregnancy and want to capture it. However, even if you aren’t feeling your best, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be photographed.
Here are some tips for taking maternity photos.
First, decide on a location that you would like to take pictures. I have always preferred natural light and taking my pictures outside. However, some prefer the comfort and privacy of their own home and others prefer a studio for a more formal vibe. All three are great locations and your pictures will look beautiful.
The best time to schedule a maternity photoshoot is when the belly is large, but not too big. This is typically in Months 7 and 8. At this point your belly will be big and beautiful but not too big where it is hard to move around or pose for a picture.
3. Feeling Beautiful
I think the most important thing is that you feel beautiful, when we feel beautiful inside and out it will shine through in your photos. So buy the dress you love, get your hair done, and put on some makeup.
I suggest wearing a solid color, a pattern would be too busy and take the focus away from your bump. Avoid wearing anything too trendy you don’t want to look back at your photos and think why did I wear that? I prefer simple flowy dresses or a tighter floor length dress that showcases your bump. Some of my favorite dresses are from Rachel Pally http://www.rachelpally.com, Sew Trendy http://www.sewtrendy.com, and of course Nuova Vita http://www.nuovavita.com.
Pictures last a lifetime so take this moment to cradle your baby bump and take the moment to connect to your baby bump. The twinkle in your heart and eyes will shine through in your photos.
