Wardrobe malfunctions? Painful heels? You’ve waited a long time for the big party so you don’t want any mishaps. Here’s how to prevent those killjoy moments.

When the big party is approaching, you don’t want anything to get in the way. It’s not every day that you get the chance to glam up and hit the town, so you want to make the most of it.

But things don’t always go according to plan. We’ve all had those mishaps that spoil the party mood, from painful shoes that keep you off the dance floor to wardrobe malfunctions that dent your confidence.

You don’t have to let these little things bring your fun to a halt, though. With a bit of preparation, you can banish the mood-killers and ensure you’re dancing long into the night. Just take a look at these tips to keep the party going.

Painful feet

When high heels are non-negotiable, how can you make sure you don’t have to hobble home in agony? The right shoes help: your feet change over the years, so get them measured to make sure you don’t compromise on fit and try a thicker, more stable heel.

Then give your dancing feet an extra break with some gel inserts that slip in under the ball of your foot. They’ll prevent your feet from slipping, so there’s less chance of blisters, and the padding can keep soreness at bay.

Backache

We might not let getting older stop us from strutting our stuff on the dance floor, but as the years go by we have to prepare for the occasional twinge of back pain.

Exercises can help in the long-term but for a quick fix, pack some ibuprofen to take as soon as you feel any discomfort. A hot-water bottle when you get home can help too.

Weak bladder

One in three women experience a sensitive bladder at some stage in their lives, and when it happens the social whirl can feel like an intimidating place. You don’t want to be worrying about every sip of a drink and scanning for the nearest loo when you should be having fun.

Luckily, there’s a solution that’s tailor-made for parties: Always Discreet Boutique underwear combines a super-absorbent core and double LeakGuards with an elegantly feminine design that fits smoothly under your favourite dress. So you can focus on your dance moves, not on your bladder.

Spots

It takes you right back to your teenage years – but not in a good way. You’re not alone, though: plenty of women experience spots (and even acne) later in life, and they seem to know to time their arrival to coincide with the big party.

You don’t have to let them ruin your fun. Try putting them in their place with a full-coverage opaque concealer that matches your skin tone. Just apply moisturiser and a light foundation underneath, then pat on the concealer to make those spots disappear.

Wardrobe malfunctions

They’re not just for celebrities: even if you don’t have the paparazzi following you, an unexpected clothing slip can be embarrassing enough to take the shine off your night.

Don’t let that put you off from trying that daring neckline when you know it looks great on you. Just take a tip from the famous and use a bit of double-sided lingerie tape to secure things in place. That way you can move freely with perfect peace of mind.
