The female body, in some scientific studies, has been shown to be revealed increasingly over the years by fashion and designers. The current uncovered flesh percentage stands at 59%, amongst A-List celebrities, and according to trends by 2010, that will increase to 79% (Global warming included.)
A major contribution has been to the ever increasing designs revealing the “female back” which has been hidden and ignored in the fashion world for a long time. With the current summer heat wave, the open back dress is both cool and sexy, and is the favourite amongst the fashionables.
Every girl must have one in her wardrobe, and if you are still are an open back dress virgin, here are some tips on how to wear an open back dress.
1. Choose the right bra.
You’ll be forgiven to feel a little nervous wondering what is covering your breasts. A well designed dress will be non-transparent, and if your confident with your breasts, it is suggested not to wear a bra, which is one main reason for the sexy nature of the open back dress sexy. For added assurance, double sided sticky to secure the sides is common on the catwalks.
Alternatively use invisible bras which stick on and give shape without straps.
2. Tattoos make it more interesting
Butterfly, thorned roses or similar give a personal wild statement to your back. Obviously you need not endure tattoo torture just to wear your beloved dress, for stick on/painted on tattoos is the temporary fix.
3. Choosing the right style of open back dress.
If you are beautifully voluptuous, it is not advisable to have any crossing ties at the back (think oven roast.) Leave your back to show naturally.
It is not difficult to wear an open back dress, and we have only one final advice. Unless you are in a nightclub or receiving your Oscars, the opening should not fall below the waistline which is also more practical for most occasions.
