5) Buttons Galore

Buttons are a beautiful addition to any dress, as they add a hint of effortless refinement. However, they look particularly exquisite on backless wedding dresses, as they sit ravishingly along the fleshy tone of the back, making the overall look soft and delicate.

7) Figure Hugging Good

A low back and an open back are two different things; both are serene and backless, but one is more daring and revealing than the other. An open back is entirely open and perfectly figure-hugging – snugly gripping each contour of the lower back, making the dress appear like part of the body. If you have tons of confidence and want to flaunt the bod, then this is the dress for you!

8) Sleeves

Sometimes, it’s nice to choose between backless and sleeveless, instead of both. Having long or three-quarter sleeves on your backless wedding dress will put more attention of the back, making it the sole focal point. The sleeves will also levy gracefully into the open back, and give your dress a different look from the front and back. What can be better than a two in one wedding dress!

9) Illusion

Keep ’em guessing with the illusion back! The illusion style has been growing in popularity in recent years, both for necklines and backs. This style is great if you dream of wearing a modern backless wedding dress, but you still want to keep it traditional with a hint of orthodox coverage and the added advantage of delicate applique or button details on the back.
