A Backless dress is the best for the wearer to catch the attention of all and steal the importance at a party or an event. These dresses are commonly worn by women in formal occasions. The length of these dresses may vary from knee to full-length. They might be of halter-top type as well. These dresses were introduced back in the year of 1920s. In the era of 1930s backless dresses became a vogue wear.
Since a backless dress does not have any strap to hold it up, there exist certain other mechanisms to do so, the most common being using a single piece of clothing in a fashionable way that ultimately holds up the dress by passing through the wearer’s neck, halter neck-style. These dresses can be even covered by the hairs of the wearer. The use of short sleeves or spaghetti sleeves can serve the purpose of holding up a backless dress. A stick-on dress or nude netting is also opted by many to grip-up such dresses. Furthermore, the amount of back exposure also varies widely in backless dresses ranging from exposing the shoulder blades to nearly the end of the low back. There are several types of bras that enable breast support in a backless dress, overall imparting an elegant look.
