We’re pretty sure that every girl has wondered what type of underwear a celeb is wearing, every time they step out in risqué red carpet dresses and work it with confidence. Deep V-necks, sheer panels, backless dresses and thigh-high slits... Learn how to successfully wear a revealing dress without flashing your underwear or having to go sans underwear! Just like the celebs do it!
1. A Super High-Cut Slit

All you need is confidence and bras and panties that are seamless and nude in colour. If you don’t want to reveal too much then you can even wear a nude camisole that is well fitted. It won’t look jarring against the outfit or take anything away from it. POPxo Recommends: Floret Cotton Camisole (Rs. 129)
3. The Oh-So Fitted Bodycon

The secret is a spanx bodysuit! There’s nothing to feel embarrassed about, almost all celebs wear shapewear on the red carpet. In fact, Kim Kardashian (the queen of body-hugging dresses) swears by spanx so much that she claims to wear two layers of it all the time! Sounds a bit ridiculous? Don’t worry, one layer is more than enough to give you smooth curves too! POPxo Recommends: Zivame Cotton Infused Seamless Medium Compression Thigh Shapewear (Rs. 995)
4. Backless And Flawless

They’re basically stick on cups that are a blessing in disguise when you want to wear a gorgeous, backless outfit. They may feel a bit weird at first and like they’re going to fall off any second, but don’t worry, they won’t. As long as you’re not running a marathon or sweating profusely, they should stay in place just fine.

They’re like regular bras but just designed to wear under cleavage-baring outfits. If you have a smaller chest then you can just try double-sided tape, one side sticks to your skin and other sticks to the dress to keep it in place and prevent it from falling away from your bust. Adhesive bras and nipple stickers are also good options to try when you’re wearing a low-cleavage dress. POPxo Recommends: Clovia Plunge Neck Front Open Bra (Rs. 249)
6. All White Everything

The solution is a minimiser bra, which will decrease the chances of this happening with the buttons. As for a fitted white dress or white pants, the most embarrassing thing is having your panties show through. Surprisingly, you should be wearing grey panties under as they blend in the best under white pants. POPxo Recommends: Zivame Underwired Full Coverage Minimiser Bra (Rs. 323)
7. The Flared Mini

Just do what most of our Bollywood actresses do while dancing around in these short numbers – slip on a pair of tiny shorts. Skin coloured ones are a good idea. You’ll definitely feel more comfortable in a pretty flared dress with them on.
