View Full Version : Where to find backless top or dress?

Kristen and I are planning to go out a couple of time in the next 6 months - one semi-formal dinner and one more formal affair. I've always wanted to wear a truly backless dress or top. Not any of that stuff that people say is backless, but it would barely hit below a bra line...I'm talking Monique L'huillier wedding dresses from three years ago backless, red carpet backless.

Any one know where to find truly backless dresses and tops?

I'd browse around Bluefly (http://www.bluefly.com). Here are a few pictures I found that might be along the lines of what you're looking for:

Nicole Miller, $300

Nicole Miller, $225 (not truly backless, but quite low and gorgeous nonetheless)

Y-Yigal, $225

A.B.S., $115

A.B.S., $180

A.B.S., $180

I just tried one on at Nordstrom Rack - it was in their formal dress section, and looked much like the ABS one posted above, without the gathers on the backside. Unfortunately I have nowhere to wear it, but tried it on just for fun. :p

Bigger department stores should start getting their homecoming dresses in, and it seems like it's a popular style. I'd probably check those sections out.

If you have one near you, I love Cache for evening wear. I have a backless beaded halter gown from there that is just gorgeous.
