Woman with her hands on her nape and back exposed

A backless dress is great. It's sexy, presko, and anyone with a back can rock one so long as you find the perfect fit for your body type. This versatile style looks as captivating in casual wear as it does during formal occasions. Ready to catch attention with an open-back number? Here are tips on how to look extra gorgeous in a backless outfit.

Wear Your Hair Up

Keep your hair away from your back, especially when it’s exposed.

When you're wearing clothes that are cut deep in the back, don't cover up—unless, of course, you feel cold and it's perfectly sensible to wear a jacket. If it's nice and warm, though, show it off! You're wearing a backless dress for that reason. Keep your haircut short or wear your hair up to keep the focus on the backless style.

Flaunt your skin by moisturizing it. Use a lotion such as Vaseline Healthy Bright Gluta Hya Serum Burst Flawless Glow, which has Gluta Glow technology to revive dull skin as well as hyaluronic acid to make your skin extra bright. Not only is it lightweight and easily absorbent, but it also locks in moisture and restores your skin’s natural balance. 

Baby Got Bacne?


According to a paper in JAMA Dermatology, bacne or acne vulgaris is a universal skin disease that affects 70% to 95% of adolescents who carry it with them through adulthood. It occurs when sweat, dirt, oil, and other impurities get trapped in the pores of your back.

In the days leading up to your backless show, make sure to always shower well and scrub your back, especially if you sweat a lot. Use Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash once every few days. It works double duty by sloughing off dead skin cells and other janky debris while keeping your skin nourished and moisturized.

Another thing you shouldn’t neglect is your hair. Excess oil from your tresses can transfer sebum to your back and trigger acne. Shower daily especially if your locks are prone to oiliness. Sunsilk Naturals Sakura & Raspberry Radiance Shampoo has a formula that purifies hair. It also brings out your hair’s natural luster, so you’re ready just in case it decides to release itself from your updo.

Do Some Back Exercises

Good posture can not only help you physically, it will also do wonders for your mood.

The secret to a nice-looking back is simple: good posture! Good posture has numerous benefits, including improved breathing, a happier disposition, and confidence. Here are some of the best back exercises you can do to work on your posture.

Perform the cat-cow pose.

This yoga position is ideal for those with back pain. Go on all fours, with your back straight and hands stretched out, parallel to your shoulders. Inhale and curve your back inward, with your chin moving toward your chest. Stay here for three counts. As you exhale, curve your spine outward, stretching your neck toward your back. 

Give yourself a high-five!

Reverse high-five exercises are an easy stretch that you can do standing up or sitting down. Raise your arms toward your back and try to high-five yourself. Do this 10 times daily. 

Try raising your arms.

In a seated or standing position, straighten your back as best as you can. Position your hands near the crown of your head and interlace your fingers, palms up. Then, slowly stretch your hands up. Repeat 10 times a day. Perform this exercise confidently with Rexona Women Natural Brightening Fresh Sakura Roll-on Antiperspirant Deodorant. It features underarm brightening and sweat protection technology to help you feel fresh and secure no matter what you’re doing. 

With confidence and a bit of preparation, anyone can pull off a backless dress. Go ahead, shop for all the gorgeous low-back outfits that you want. It’s up to you to bring sexy back.
