The Best Tips for Rocking a Backless Dress ...

Backless dresses are such an amazing style staple, but sometimes we can be self-conscious about wearing them. From eliminating body acne to finding the perfect bra, it can seem like a chore just to wear a simple dress. However, if you want to wear a backless dress but don’t know where to start with your own checklist, this list will make it so easy for you to get ready to rock your backless dress at your next event!

1. Find a Good Spot of Your Back to Show off

One of the most essential parts of wearing a backless dress is finding the spot on your back that you think is the most flattering and choosing a dress that highlights that. When you feel confident about what you’re showing off, you’ll feel better in what you’re wearing!

2. Fake Tan

Get the fake tan out, because there’s no point in wearing a backless dress if you don’t have a gorgeous summer glow to go along with it. Just because you don’t have time (or the skin tone) for a pretty summer tan doesn’t mean that you can’t get a tan altogether! Get a spray tan that works well with your skin tone, or maybe even find one with a little bit of sparkle for an extra glowy look!

3. Be Aware of Your Posture

If there were any outfit to be aware of your posture in, it’d be a backless dress. When you’re hunched over in a backless dress, it’s even more obvious than in any other outfit. Rather than spend the whole night worrying about what you look like, if you have the proper posture, you’ll automatically be so much more confident in your look!

4. Exfoliate

Exfoliating should obviously come before the spray tan, but you’d be surprised at just how much of a difference that exfoliating can make. If you get one with acne medicine in it, it can eliminate any body acne issues you may have. Even if you don’t get a medicated exfoliating cream, you’d be surprised at how fresh and revitalized it will make your skin!

5. Take Your Bra off in Advance

Since you’ll definitely be going bra-less with this look, you want to avoid as many unsightly lines as possible. Every woman struggles with those uncomfortable lines that come with wearing your bra for any amount of time, but if you take off your bra a few hours before you put your dress on, those lines will be long gone!

6. But Don’t Nix the Bra Altogether

You don’t need to forgo the bra just because you’re wearing a backless dress. The very thought just stresses me out! If you’re too nervous to ditch the bra when wearing a backless dress, try wearing a sticky bra. You can find them at nearly any craft store (however, I recently got one from Charlotte Russe that I love!), they’re relatively inexpensive, they last for a long time, and they provide a decent amount of support. They’re perfect for a backless outfit!

7. Rock It!

When it comes down to it, though, the most important part of wearing a backless dress is wearing it with confidence! If you’re confident in your look and how you look, you’re sure to turn heads and be the most beautiful girl in the room!
