Guest Post: Backless Dresses

I love open back dresses, especially this dress from Eskell's spring collection. Open back dresses are so sexy and perfect for spring/summer nights.

What do people think about backless wedding dresses? I'm getting married and fell in love with one at a bridal salon (no pictures/links to post, I'm afraid).

It's a Catholic wedding. I would wear a veil that technically covers the back (but it would still be visible). The front of the dress is modest enough (no boob spillage), and there is a spaghetti strap on the left shoulder that has a big flower on it. The back dips down into a V, so despite the sheer veil, my back would still be pretty exposed.

Is it too scandalous for a church wedding?

Eep!

I like the dresses, but it's me that's the problem. I don't have the greatest posture. Wish I did!

I love those!

I love the open backs...

...but how do you keep "the girls" in their place while you wear an open back dress?

If only my top-heaviness permitted backless dresses! I feel like I "droop" unless I have support. Those glue-on pasties don't lift them up, you know! =) Jealous of all you ladies who can pull this off.

I'm in love and in need of one or all of these

The French said...

Cute, but I'm always worried about what would be happening on the front...without a bra.

Stephanie said...

Great. I was pretty much set on not buying anymore clothing this summer. Now I feel like I need to immediately go out and buy a backless dress. ;-) The red one is my favorite!

ag. said...

oooh gorgeous style!

(Dotty...I don't think an open back is too scandoulous for the church! I imagine you'll be dressed very tastefully so an open back will probably just look elegant! Go for it!)

Janelle said...

I love this too! I'm trying to design a open-back dress that I can still wear a bra with. It's got to have a perfectly placed sash or strap!

The "stick-on" bras you can buy at Macy's or Target work really well. You basically stick on each side and then it hooks in the middle (for more or less cleavage). I don't even own a regular strapless anymore!

Patricia said...

I agree! They are so effortlessly sexy too. Even if the front is modest, the back gives a little hint of flesh without being too over the top. People should show off their backs more than their fronts sometimes :)

Nikki said...

Yup so sexy, but even with those somewhat unsuccessful sticky bra thing-a-mees, not so great for gals with... large gals... ! Would so love me a dress like one of these though :(

reinbow said...

waa i love the red one. it's nice :)

Beatriz said...

Open backs are so sexy without being TOO revealing. I would definitely rock that look ;)


Hope you're having a great week Love!

Oh how funny! I was just having a discussion on twitter yesterday about backless vs. strapless. I - for the life of me - have never found a really reliable bra situation for the backless wonders that abound. My "girls" are best suited for strapless. All of this is fine for me as I adore strapless dresses, tops etc.

But those backless beauties above are super fun!

Susan said...

I love those dresses, great styles.
