Backless wedding dresses have been a firm favourite in the summer wedding world for a number of years now and there seems to be no sign of the statement gown leaving the station any time soon.
If you have decided to opt for a backless wedding dress for your big day then you might be wondering how you can wear it to its full glory. If this is the case then take a look at the tips and tricks that I have listed below.
Deciding Whether A Backless Dress Is For You
Before we get into how to wear a backless wedding dress we need to first work out if the backless life is for you.
Like anything new in life, the only way you can find out if something is for you is by trying it out. The same rule applies when it comes to your wedding dress try-ons.
Book an appointment with a few different bridal boutiques in your area and choose a few backless dresses at each one. Get one of your bridesmaids to take pictures of you from all angles when wearing the dress and see if you like the way it looks.
Getting someone to take the pictures for you is far more reliable then looking in a mirror as a mirror can distort your view. Also consider taking the photos in different lightings. This applies to any wedding dress you try on by the way. Doing this allows you to see how seethrough the dress is. You don’t want any surprises on the wedding day.
Backless Wedding Dress Styles
If you have already started the search for your wedding dress then you will already know that there are so many styles to choose from.
You could go simple by choosing a body-hugging design with spaghetti straps that cuts right down the back and leaves little to the imagination…
Or, how about a more subtle approach with a halter neck, scooped back or cowl detailing at the drop? There are a few options to go with and it never hurts to try on a few before you make your final decision.
If you would like to have a backless dress but are conscious about the support you would get then here is a little tip…
There are dresses with cutouts, sheer paneling and clever strings of beads that give the effect of a backless dress with that little bit of extra support.

When it comes to applying boob tape for a backless wedding dress there isn’t a “works for all” solution. However, we would recommend cutting off a long strip of the boob tape that best matches your skin tone, taping one end under your breast and then lifting the other end over your shoulder before sticking it down. You can then apply more boob tape around your bust to create the desired look and shape.
How To Enthesise A Backless Wedding Dress
A great way to finish off your backless wedding dress is with a statement hairstyle. Choose a style that has an intricate plat or roll at the back, fished off with a flattering pin or comb for the back of your hair that complements the dress.
You could elevate your back even further with a back necklace. Make the most of that exposed skin and shimmer like diamonds as you glide down the aisle. Your guest will be taken back when you first walk into the room but then feel all those emotions once again after you walk past them and they see the statement you have behind you.
