I’m so excited to show you my most recent modesty hack! A “modesty hack” is a term I coined for when I take an immodest piece of clothing and hack it conform to my standards! Modesty hacks can range from actual sewing projects to simple layering. (You can see all of my past modesty hacks here!) This post is all about my mega modesty tip for how I pulled off this formal dress modesty hack!

I bet you’re wondering how I modestly pulled off this completely lace topped, lace backed, formal dress with cutouts, right?! Modesty Hack.

Well… today is your lucky day because I’m going to reveal the biggest modesty tip EVER that I have up my sleeve! (pun intended!) It’s called a Honey Slip! A Honey Slip is a capped-sleeve, knee-length, nude-colored dress slip meant to wear under any sheer dress! It’s absolutely perfect for a simple modesty hack!

If you’re wedding dress, formal dress, or prom dress shopping right now you may have noticed the sheer top lace top trend which may have been frustrating up until this point… but it’s actually ideal! All you have to do is sip on a Honey Slip underneath the dress and it’s instantly modest!

I bet you can’t even tell, right?!

I wore this lace top, lace back, cutout formal dress I rented from Rent the Runway (read more about my awesome experience renting from Rent the Runway in this post) to our recent Alt Summit Mini Party (more about the party details to come in my next post!) Since this dress would have been too revealing for me, I simply wore my Honey Slip underneath it and it was absolutely perfect! The slip perfectly matched my skin tone and under the lace nobody could even tell I had it on, but they could definitely tell I wasn’t overexposed! It made it look like the dress was naturally lined.

My 2 other party-planning teammates Worthington Ave and Life Beats Project who threw this amazing Paparazzi Ready themed party with me also wore dresses from Rent the Runway! (See this post to see the second Rent the Runway dress I wore the night before!)
