I am known to try my hand at every fashion trend, just to say I at least gave it a chance...but there is one trend I have shied away from. I have sat back and admired all the gorgeous fashionistas in the off-shoulder trend that made a come back.
Unfortunately I have been able to participate because I never found a top that actually stayed off my shoulders. Every time I tried something on, I felt like it went from off shoulder back to turtle neck in about 5 minutes.
The bad news is that I spent my whole summer waiting for someone to make a top that fit my plus size body. BUT....what I never realized was that there were actual products that were designed to keep my off shoulder tops in place.
Ladies and gentlemen...the best kept secret in the world is using a specific fashion tape to hold it all together. I have tried several kinds but found that the Scotch™ Essentials line of products worked the best.
To put it to the test, I pulled out my new favorite Ashley Stewart top and decided that I would give the tape a try. I specifically used the Scotch Essentials adjustable hem tape. I purchased this at my local Target store in the same aisle as the sewing essentials. ($4.99)
Here is how it works.
1. Cut out the strip size you need
2. Peel back the protective paper
3. Adhere one size to the inner part of the off shoulder top (this works best when the top has a thick sleeve). To help create a more snug fit, I adhered this to the strap of my bra, this also works well on a strapless bra as well.
4. Put on the top and press the sections with the tape against your the fabric of your bra or undershirt. (I used about three strips per sleeve for an ultra snug fit).
