Choosing the right dress

1. Choose the right kind of dress

This silk, slip dress is the perfect fit for this corset-under-dress look. It’s not too tight, so the corset can fit underneath.

It’s beautiful but without too much detail. You should use a spaghetti strap dress for this hack since wider straps or sleeves will be too bulky to tuck in.

2. Wear the corset and dress

Start by putting on the corset with the slip dress on top.

3. Tuck the straps

Slide off the spaghetti straps and tuck them neatly into the front of your corset top and underneath your arms as needed, to completely hide the straps.

Straighten the top, and your corset-under-dress look is done!

Tucking the straps

Here’s the final look of this corset-under-dress look.
