One of the dresses I bought at Fashion to Figure last week had a very narrow collar (see photo). Sans zipper or buttons, it was impossible to put the dress on without transferring some of my makeup onto the dress.
I loved the dress and bought it despite the collar issue. But I did mention the problem to the sales rep and she offered a solution.
Put the dress on before doing your makeup. Then put on a smock or old loose shirt over the dress to prevent the makeup from getting on the dress during application.
In the past, I tried something similar with a towel, but the towel kept falling away. Now I can put some old boy mode clothes to good use.
By the way, hand-washing the soiled part of the dress for about three minutes readily removed the makeup.
