How can one make a chiffon dress not see-through?

Hi everyone, I recently purchased a beautiful chiffon dress for a wedding I'll be attending soon. The only problem is that it's slightly see-through, and I don't want to feel self-conscious all night. I was wondering if anyone had any tips or tricks to make the chiffon dress not see-through? I've heard of wearing a slip underneath, but I'm not sure if that's the best option. I don't want it to be bulky and ruin the look of the dress. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi there! I totally understand your concern about your chiffon dress being see-through. I had the same issue with a dress I recently bought, and I didn't want to wear a slip or anything bulky either. After doing some research, I stumbled upon a solution that worked like a charm - using a fabric stiffener spray.

All you have to do is spray the stiffener on the inside of the dress, where it might be see-through. The stiffening spray will add a layer of opacity to the fabric, preventing it from being too transparent. I have to say, it worked wonderfully for me, and the dress looked even better with the added stiffness.

Another option that worked for me was to wear a skin-colored bodysuit under the dress instead of a slip. This not only added coverage to the see-through areas but also made my body look more streamlined.

I hope you find these tips helpful and can enjoy wearing your chiffon dress without any worries!


Hello there! I've had a similar problem with a see-through chiffon dress, and I've found that nude-colored undergarments can help solve the issue.

When choosing undergarments, go for bras and panties that closely match your skin tone. Nude-colored undergarments will blend in with your skin, making them less noticeable through the sheer fabric of the dress.

If you prefer not to wear a slip, try layering a fitted top and shorts or a half-slip underneath the dress. These undergarments should be close-fitting and comfortable, so you don't feel weighed down or bulky, while still covering any see-through areas.

Another option is to accessorize with a scarf or shawl. When draped over your shoulders or around your neck, a scarf or shawl can add a pop of color, style, and texture to your outfit while covering any see-through areas.

I hope these suggestions help you enjoy your chiffon dress without any worries about it being see-through!


Hello! I completely understand your concern about the chiffon dress you purchased being see-through. I've faced a similar issue in the past, and I found that lining the dress helped significantly.

First, determine which areas of the dress are see-through. Then, either purchase or make a lining using a lightweight, opaque fabric. Ensure that the lining is sewn into the dress seamlessly to avoid any bulges or unevenness.

If you prefer to wear a slip, opt for one with a sleek, fitted design. This will not add any bulk to your outfit and should blend in with the dress without being visible. Plus, it will prevent the dress from clinging to your body, giving you a smooth and sleek silhouette.

Another option is to wear shapewear under your dress. Not only will it give a smooth and firm appearance to the dress, but it will also eliminate any see-through areas.

I hope these suggestions help you enjoy your chiffon dress for your upcoming event without any worries about being see-through.


Hey there! I've had a lot of experience with chiffon dresses and making them less see-through. The trick is to find a flesh-colored slip that matches your skin tone as closely as possible. Wear it underneath the dress, and it will create an extra layer that will block out any see-through sections.

Another option is to layer a similar-colored and lightweight blouse underneath the dress. This will give the same effect as wearing a slip, but it won't feel as bulky. Plus, it can add a unique and fashionable touch to your outfit.

Lastly, there's always the option of adding some extra fabric to the dress itself. If you're crafty enough, you can take some extra chiffon and sew it into the inside of the dress, creating a lining. This will significantly reduce any see-through areas and will give your dress a bit more weight and structure.

I hope these tips help you feel more confident and comfortable in your chiffon dress!


Hey there! I've had my fair share of struggles with chiffon dresses being see-through, and I've found that there are a few tricks you can use to fix this issue.

First off, finding a suitable bra that doesn't show through the chiffon dress is vital. Strapless or adhesive bras are great choices as they don't leave any visible lines or bumps that can be seen through the fabric.

Another solution is to add a belt to your outfit. A belt will not only give your dress an extra touch of style, but it will also help pull the fabric of the dress closer to your body, preventing any see-through areas from showing.

Lastly, if all else fails, try layering a lightweight jacket or cardigan over the dress. This will cover any see-through sections and add an extra element of style to your outfit. Just ensure that the jacket or cardigan doesn't clash with the dress and complements the dress's color scheme.

I hope these suggestions help you feel more comfortable and confident in your chiffon dress!
