Subject: I have used Tegaderm on several dresses. I used it in the areas you mentioned, just where the sequins may rub on another more delicate part of the dress. I have never had to replace it so I don't know how it may affect the sequins if removed. I put it on the brand new dress and sell the dress with it still in place. It has never lifted or curled on the edges so I have had no reason to remove it. More..

In reply to: Thanks 's message, "Using Tagaderm (transparent high gloss surgical wound covering) on bodice" on Tuesday, May 20, 11:27:38am

I have also used tulle and that worked as well. The dress I did this on was a full sequin bodice with delicate white lacey/chiffon sleeves. On this dress, the area to be covered was too large for Tegaderm, so I hand sewed fine white tulle down the inside edge of the sleeves from underarm to cuff. It was invisible once on and did the job perfectly. I also left it on when I sold the dress. It was easy to tack it on with large'ish stitches.

So I would use Tegaderm for smaller areas and Tulle for larger areas.

Hope that helps.
