Prior to wearing a bareback attire, go bra-less for a while as an ugly strap mark on the bra can ruin your look. With a backless dress, you need to wear a certain type of bra that’s perfect for your look. There are bras with low back straps that can work well on your dress depending on its back plunge. If you’re somehow conservative, a bra with a transparent strap can work as well as it easily blends with your skin tone from afar. But, if wearing a bra is impossible for your dress, then you can wear a silicon cup or nipple tapes that adhere to your busts. Not only will it conceal nipple marks, but it will also keep your breasts perky without the bra.

  1. Choose the appropriate style for your curves.

There are many backless dresses out there but only go for ones that complement your shape. If you’re quite heavy and petite, you may wish to skip those bareback styles as it will only make you look shorter. Instead, go for a backless style with U or V plunge to complement you frame. On the other hand, if you’re slim and tall, feel free to go for bareback styles as it complements your frame very well. If you want to look like a bombshell, pick a strappy yet sexy dress which is slinky from top to bottom. If you’re still unsure in the backless style, simply opt for an A-line dress because it works well with every shape.

  1. Don’t show too much of your skin.

A bareback dress shows enough, so you don’t have to pick a dress that shows off your cleavage, legs and such. With fashion, too much of a good thing is vile so look sexy yet classy with a boat neck backless dress. If you got a deep plunge on your back, you may keep everything balanced by keeping your hemline longer than knees. But if you prefer a shorter dress, go for a backless dress that doesn’t reveal much of your back.

  1. Complete your looks with accessories.

Go for accessories that complement your body type to make it flattering for you. For instance, if you have a long neck, go for choker styles of necklaces to balance it off while looking great in a backless dress and a simple bun keeping your hair neatly in place. On the other hand, if you have a short neck, go for a necklace style with tails at the back to add some illusion of a longer neck without obstructing the beautiful view of your back. Or, you can simply wear statement earrings to polish your looks without looking overdone. If you love keeping your hair down, just part your hair on one side on your front instead of your back to show off your beautiful back. Go for your most stylish shoes that can complement the statement of your dress.

Backless dresses are indeed a failsafe clothing to go for when you’re feeling sexy but don’t want to look over-the top. Just remember these low-maintenance styling tricks to rock your backless dresses in an effortless way.
