I had no idea this Farm Rio dress was a beach cover-up. I saw the colors and style, and even though it was a little out of my comfort zone, I took a deep breath and ordered it. As soon as I tried it on, I wanted to wear it for our upcoming date night in NYC.

I’m excited to show you how I wore it as a date night outfit, how it’s more than a beach cover up, and — most fun of all — to share my no-bra solutions. But first, let’s talk about how to move past any shame about showing your body…

This Farm Rio Jungle Dress + The Confidence To Wear It

Wearing this dress is a milestone. While this is not the first time I’ve worn a low cut or cut-out dress, it is the first time I’m showing the section of my body from my lower boobs down to my belly. And I had to silence a lot of voices telling me I looked ugly and was showing too much skin.

It took me some time to realize that many of the negative thoughts I had about my body, my femininity, and my sensuality, had roots — it was not who I was. You may or may not know that part of my story. Now, the more I look deep within myself, the more confident and sensual I feel.

I am judging how much skin to show by my own feelings of freedom and happiness, not by anyone else’s standards. Everyone is on a different journey with their body and what matters the most is how we feel.

The bra situation is the main thing that stops many of us from going for a halter dress like this.

But Wait, What Bra Do You Wear? 

The bra situation is one of the main things that will stop many of us from going for a dress like this. Depending on your specific body, you will face different challenges. Fortunately, there are a lot of no-bra solutions — and combinations of ways to feel comfortable. Let’s explore them:

Boob Tape & Nipple Covers

  • While you can go for tape-only, I saw someone on Tiktok (it’s always TikTok) putting on the Nippies first and then using the tape to lift them.

Adhesive Bra

  • There are different adhesive bras, but you’d need something like this for this type of dress. It seems a little easier than solution number one. If you need an adhesive bra for a large bust, the size large is supposed to work for D and E cups.  

Nipple Covers Only

  • Who said you need lifted boobs to be beautiful? The nipple covers alone could be what makes you feel best. 

Free The Nipple

  • Depending on your comfort level, you can go completely free. If you’re concerned about your nipples being too obvious, the pattern of the print will camouflage them. On to the next step to be sure you won’t fall out of the dress…

The Best Dress Tape!

I like a little sexy peek but not flashing it all, so I tape the dress — or whatever I’m wearing when I’m showing cleavage — in place. While you can find fashion tape everywhere, my trusted choice is Topstick Men’s Grooming Tape

How To Use Fashion Tape For Plunging Necklines & Cut-Outs

Using fashion tape is very easy. It’s all about standing straight while accommodating the fabric where you want it when placing the tape. I promise it will stay for hours if you leave it alone. If your initial placing was not the best, start again with a fresh piece — a reason to keep extra tape in your bag.

And boom! You can do anything without fearing your boobs are on full display.

Beach-worthy? Maybe. J Lo Dress? Definitely.

Does this dress work also work as a beach cover-up? It depends. I can see it working for a walk on the beach as long as you have a suit with a similar design on top (or you might feel comfortable with no top). You can find a Farm Rio swimsuit in this same pattern with an identical top cut-out. It’s a stunner.

In my case, I didn’t know it was intended as a cover up, I only realized after I had already worn it as a perfect NYC date night outfit. There wasn’t a moment I felt it was see-through.

The fabric is lightweight with a good drape. The length will work whether you’re tall or petite (like me). The compliments kept rolling in during the night, and well…that’s nice sometimes. From the first moment we got in an Uber, the driver (a woman, of course) said, “Wow, girl! You’re giving a J. Lo vibe,” and truth be told, minutes before, waiting for our elevator, I’d had the same thought!

  1. You look beautiful! Love the bracelet, too. I just wore my Nippies yesterday. They work great, but on sweaty days they hold the sweat in, so be sure to take them off over a sink 🤣

  2. Wow, what an amazing print… and the lady inside the print is amazing as well. Thanks for sharing this and maybe one day I’ll be as brave as you.
