We all know what a backless dress is so I’m not going to give you a history lesson about it. Suffice to say that right now, the back is the ‘New Cleavage’. And if you’re not getting it out there, you are missing the boat. So repeat after me: ‘Modest in front, sexy in the back!’ That’s right, now go forth and shop!
Now if you’re not quite convinced that you can pull off the look, here are some tips that should change your mind. First of all, you’ll need to choose a style based on what looks best with your body shape. Form fitting or loosely flowing? A wide, deep opening, or a shallower, narrower opening?. Everyone’s body is different and the most important thing is that you feel confident. Also, you’ll want to think about the styling of the front of the dress. Remember, a backless dress is the most striking when there is a contrast between the modesty of the front and the revelation of the back.
Once you’ve started trying on different styles, remember you’re your posture is of extreme importance. Walk with your head held high and your back straight. This can change the whole look of a backless dress. And you can continue to elongate your body by adding a pair of high heels. Another important tip is to take care of your skin. Don’t overdo it with the tanning. All you need to do is to make sure you follow a simple regimen of cleansing and moisturizing.
And last but not least, don’t wear a traditional bra! Nothing ruins the sexy line of an exposed back like an unwanted bra strap running across the middle. If you’re too well-endowed to go completely braless, look for a backless bra with adhesive, a strapless bra with a low clasp (depending on the depth of the back plunge) or individual bra cups or lifts. And remember not to wear a tight bra before you wear your backless dress because you don’t want any leftover ‘bra marks’ to show either.
A woman’s back is one of the sexiest parts of her body, and it’s far too often overlooked. The backless dress is the perfect outfit to remedy this, and it’s a desirable piece that can suit many different body types. There many different styles so keep looking until you find the perfect one for you.

Something seriously sexy for everyone!
