Glam Corner: How to Wear Backless or Open Back Dresses

Open back or backless dresses are an elegant and fashionable style for anyone looking to make a statement by showing some skin. They are usually chosen for formal or semi-formal events, or for that special night at the prom. However, they can be intimidating to wear, but done the right way, anyone can feel beautiful and comfortable in a backless dress, especially at the prom.

Make sure the fit is correct

Make sure that your open back dress fits you properly and that you look and feel your best. If your dress is too big, it will gap in the back, while if it is too small, the fabric will pucker and will not lay right on your skin. A snug and secure fit is the assurance of a polished and confident look when you wear your dress.

Choose the right undergarments

Choosing the right undergarments will determine how comfortable you are in your backless dress. If you need to, you can have a seamstress sew cups into your dress if you prefer to go braless, or you can invest in adhesive gel petals to cover your nipples. You can also try strapless clear bras, multi-way convertible bras with clear straps, or clear strap extensions.

Practice proper posture and make sure your back is clean

A straight posture will draw attention to your back and enhance your look. Do your best to avoid slouching or hunching over. Since your back will be the centre of the universe, make sure you thoroughly clean it when you shower, and apply a light moisturiser before putting on your dress.

Choose the right hairstyle

Don’t wear a backless dress and let your hair down to cover your back. The dramatic effect becomes lost. Get help from your local hairdresser for a fabulous hairstyle that keeps your hair up and away from your back so your back can impress.
