These Summer Dresses Are Business in the Front and Party in the Back

There's something so timelessly chic about backless dresses. They recall hot summer nights, the South of France, and a touch of carelessness all at once. The only time I go braless (with D-cup boobs) is for a backless dress, and though I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that that is perfectly okay, it feels a bit rebellious. Plus, they are just so comfortable when the temperatures warm up.

Walking into a room having one's back exposed is a secret that belongs only to the dress's wearer. It's business in the front, party in the back. Backless dresses ensure your last impression is as fab as your first. And the best part is that they come in so many styles, from mini halters and long-sleeve linen dream gowns, to cross-back frocks that make for dreamy wedding guest looks.
