I wore a white, backless maxi dress with ruffles for my maternity shoot three years ago. And I fell in love with dresses that create drama from the back ever since.
The idea of strutting a dress which people think is just another maxi dress, and yet when you turn your back they´re like, “Oh, my goodness!”
That´s the kind of dress I´m currently obssessed with.
These dramatic dresses from the back are often backless, or sometimes a racerback, and its their statement straps that differ.
The biggest question when it comes to wearing a backless dress, or any back-drama dress for that matter, is “how in the world am I gonna wear a bra?”
How do you cover your nipples without ruining the drama that your dress is trying to create?
Ditch the bra straps, especially the back straps. (We´ll talk more about that on my next blog post.)
But for now, let´s take a look at some beautiful dresses that grab attention from the back.
Very, very sexy. Floor sweeping. And elegant.
This dress has a figure-flattering princess silhouette with cascading full skirt. It comes in different colors so you can choose the color that suits your skin tone.
But no matter what color you choose to wear, I believe you´ll agree with me when I say that the back straps are truly magical.
If you´re looking for a maxi dress with unique back view, this has to be it.
Do you have the hips and the derriere for a figure-hugging dress with mermaid maxi skirt?
If you do, you´ll going to look like a goddess in this one. It´s a backless dress with a minimalist take on straps.
It has the same fishtail silhouette like the above blue dress, but its creating drama through its plunging neckline and racerback style.
For me, I really love the character that the racerback creates for this formal dress.
It makes things edgy while formal.
Do you need a dress for a beach wedding? Play up your femininity with a floral maxi dress.
It has a high slit to expose a leg. And the crosscross spaghetti straps are divine.
This dress is definitely not for everyone. But if you have the guts to look both sexy and feminine, then this is your girl.
Flowy and sexy. The side slit is flirty, but the back straps are everything.
Wear with heels for a glamorous effect. Or with flats for a stunning casual look. (You may need to hem the skirt though.)
This rainbow dress is perfect for summer. The colors and the back straps are beautiful.
And because the stripes are vertical lines, they´re slimming.
Sometimes a girl just got to wear the most dramatic dress. And this summer, let the drama happen on the back.
