Today we are taking about backless shirts! If you know me then you know I have an obsession with backless shirts. I have never felt comfortable in crop tops, so I like to spice it up with an open back. Any shirt that is backless makes me like it so much more. We are talking about some of my tips and tricks to wearing backless shirts.
This is my personal favorite technique. Pairing your favorite bralette with an open back top is one of the more practical options. This provides support and makes a really cute statement. I know some people like to wear sticky boobs, but that has never worked for me. Personally, I do not mind having a bralette show. Aerie and Urban Outfitter have so many cute bralettes that it would be a shame not to show them off.
2. Duct Tape
This is not my go-to option because it can be a little difficult. What I do is make a backless bra out of duct tape. There are so many youtube videos out showing you how to tape those sisters down, but I say do whatever feels comfortable to you. I know for Homecoming dances etc. I would duct tape because I needed the “bra” to hold. I like duct tape because you do not have to spend a fortune and you probably have some in your house. Fair warning, it can be painful to take off. You know what they say, beauty is pain!
Extra tip! You can take the cups out of an old swimsuit or bra and tape those to your body. This has worked for me as well. The cups provide some extra protection for your skin (aka duct tape is not all over your skin).
You can assume where you would put the band aids (this makes sure you are not nipping out). I don’t think you need to much explanation about this one 🙂
4. FREE BOOB
Go for it! Women have boobs and if you wanna free boob go for it! Power to the sisters!
Here is how I styled one of my many backless shirts!
This shirt is so cool because the back is tule with a tie! I really liked this look, because it was such an “Anna Outfit”. Black and white are my go-to colors. I felt so comfortable and free in this outfit. This is from my shoot with Clare LoCoco.
