The good news is that this is a style of dress that is suites most body shapes!                                                                                                                      It is the front of the dress that plays the main role in determining what style you require in relation to your shape. For example, if you have a larger bust, a scooped neckline is a great option. Nonetheless, you then have to consider the fact that you are going to be showing a bit of skin at the front. Therefore, if you want to go for a backless dress, make sure you are only showing a little bit of skin at the back. However, if you have a small bust or a slender frame, you really can explore the wide range of backless dresses that are available, as this style of wedding dress is ideal for your shape.

So, what are the advantages?

Firstly, there is no denying that a backless dress has the wow factor. We tend to expect the main detail of a dress to be at the front. Therefore, when you walk down the aisle you will take everyone’s breath away as they notice the stunning open-cut back of your dress. In addition to this, many will agree that this style of dress creates the perfect balance. You have a hint of sex appeal, coupled with femininity and elegance. A backless wedding dress is assured to make you feel and look a million dollars. You can also go for a plainer dress and still have the wow factor, finishing off with touches like shoe clips and diamond stud earrings.

Problems you may find

There are some things you need to be wary of if you are going to opt for this style of dress. Firstly, finding the right bra is imperative, and it is not always easy. The best option to go for tends to be a wrap around bra. These give you a couple of extra inches at the back when compared with a normal bra. Alternatively, you could opt to purchase stick-on nipple covers or adhesive push-up bra pads. However, these are only suited for women who have breasts that are a C-cup or smaller. In addition to this, this is a style of wedding dress that requires a lot of confidence to pull off. You need to be comfortable baring your skin.

Last but not least, how do you wear a backless dress on your big day? Well, firstly, you should definitely go for an up-do. This hairstyle is the only way you are going to show off the backless detail of your dress. Big earrings tend to go perfectly with this look. In fact, you can even buy necklaces and body jewellery that laces your back rather than your front. Therefore, this is something you may wish to consider if you have gone for a classic style of dress that could do with some accessorising.
