How To Wear A Backless Dress With Confidence

How To Wear A Backless Dress With Confidence

Backless dresses can look stunning. If you have an event coming up and the perfect backless dress in mind, you may be feeling a mix of excitement and fear. It can take a lot of confidence to wear a backless dress, and if you’re not feeling it, then it doesn’t matter how good the dress looks; you won’t feel your best self.

If you’re not feeling your best self, there are aesthetic enhancements that may help to boost your confidence so you can ‘bare’ your back with pride. This post aims to uncover some of the main back concerns and how to address them so you can feel ‘back confident’.

Two of the biggest things that put women off wearing these dresses are worries about back fat and back acne. However, there are solutions for these issues; find out more here:


No matter where it appears, acne is caused by the same thing – too much oil trapped on your skin. When there are large amounts of oil in your pores, this promotes the growth of acne-causing bacteria. If they get clogged, they become inflamed, and it can then cause acne on the skin.

Your back is, unfortunately, a prime place for acne flare-ups. This is because the skin on backs and chests often produce more oil than other body areas. In addition, when the weather gets hot, you’re going to sweat, and since this can often collect on the back of your clothing, it can multiply the effect.


Fortunately, there are steps you can take to try and stop flare-ups from happening:


As mentioned, clothes that collect sweat can make matters worse. So when you’re working out, try wearing breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics. You will also want to avoid tight-fitting clothing when you can, which can also exacerbate back acne.

If your clothing does get sweaty, try not to spend too much time in this clothing. You’ll want to avoid sweaty fabric getting too close to your pores. Try to shower as soon as you can after exercise or getting sweaty.

Skincare Products

Next, choose your skincare products with care. You’ll want to avoid anything too oily. Sunscreen can be something that people forget to consider. It’s essential to wear it, so hunt about for an oil-free brand you like.


Finally, look at your diet. Nutrition is one of the critical factors in the appearance of any acne breakouts. What you eat has a significant effect on the condition of your skin. For most people, it is best to avoid foods with a high glycemic index. That means foods that give you spikes in blood sugar. Intense blood sugar spikes can lead to inflammation which is what sufferers of acne need to avoid.

Another common culprit for many is dairy. Dairy and whey protein are some of the most common dietary triggers for acne sufferers. Fortunately, there are loads of great milk alternatives on the market now, so there is bound to be something you can try.

If you’re not sure what your trigger foods are, it can be helpful to keep a food diary. Log what you eat, as well as the condition of your skin. You might find some patterns that jump out at you.


Sometimes it doesn’t matter what changes you make; you may still get flare-ups. If that sounds familiar, there are treatments you can try which can help to improve your skin condition.

Antibiotics can be an option for dealing with a breakout. However, it will depend on your situation and needs to be prescribed by a medical professional.

Obagi skin care products are a fantastic range of products. They are prescription strength tailored solutions that can help to regulate the amount of oil your skin produces. Using them correctly can not only help you deal with a breakout but can reduce the frequency and intensity of your acne.

INTRAcel is a micro-needling technique. That means that tiny needles deliver RF energy into your skin. This can help to change the appearance and texture of the skin and can help with acne as well as helping to improve the signs of acne scarring.

Acne Scarring

If your acne has left you with scars on your back that make you hesitate to bare, you do have options. There are several treatments that are effective at reducing the appearance of these sorts of scars. The treatment that will be best for you will depend on the size and severity of the scarring. We offer treatments such as INTRAcel and chemical peels. Find out about the range of treatments for acne scarring that we can help with here.

We’ll always recommend a consultation to help you find the perfect treatment for you. However, there are several options available to suit a range of needs.

Back Fat

Even when you’re a healthy weight and in good shape, back fat can be stubborn to remove and can impact your confidence. You may find that you get little fat rolls on your lower back or around your bra. This fat can be hard to get rid of and feel demoralising when working hard to live a healthy lifestyle. If this sounds familiar, there are options:

VASER Liposuction is an ideal option for anyone with stubborn fat deposits. A skilled surgeon can use it to target the most stubborn fat you cannot touch through diet and exercise. It’s a minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime. A special device is inserted through a small incision.

The surgeon can use the wand to melt away the targetted fat using ultrasound. The fat is then sucked out. All you need is a local anaesthetic for the procedure, so you’ll be home on the same day.

Renuvion is a good option if the back fat is actually due to loose skin rather than an accumulation of fat. Renuvion is a minimally invasive technique that boosts your body’s collagen production. You can use it in isolation, or you can pair it with VASER Liposuction.

The boosted collagen production helps your skin to become more elastic. This means it feels tighter, and your back looks smoother and more toned.

Improving The Appearance Of Your Back

If the appearance of your back is knocking your confidence, then there are solutions available. No one should feel like their skin is holding them back. So, if you want to find out more, book a consultation today and find out what your options are so that you can start feeling better about yourself and wear any clothes you want to.
