How To by Jennifer Crone
Every time I see a backless dress I ooh and ahh and I think it’s the consensus among us, ladies. Unique and memorable, a backless dress can also be elegant and classic. Here’s How To:
As with all fashion, the possibilities are endless. You can go with a slightly scandalous deep V that shows just the top of your ehem, butt cleavage in the French style, or take the high road, literally, and show just the center of the back with more of a cut out shape.
Enhance your dress by finding something with an embellishment like a floral design, a ribbon, or a bow. A train or partial train could also start at the base of your back. Think delicate lace train draping down from a satin gown. Your back could be partially covered with lace or a fine organza leaving something to the imagination.
If you’re dying to go backless but are having a winter wedding, fear not! That’s what accessories are for. A beautiful white faux fur stole would be breathtaking. Or a pull through wrap. If you’re having a true winter wedding, snow and all, save your backless surprise for the receptions and try this bridal cape for the ceremony.

- Tip When buying backless, get your gown altered a little looser rather than tighter. You don’t want to feel like you’re corseted in or can’t move.
