A strappy bow back dress is the perfect way to show-off your sexy back. And unlike a completely backless dress that might raise a few eyebrows and invite unsavoury comments, a bow back dress looks so feminine and pretty that no one would think about it as skimpy or term you scantily clad.

If you are on a tight budget and can’t afford to spend money on a new dress, then you can make your own bow back dress. Sew a bow using fabric, lace or satin ribbons and sew it onto one of your dress. Make sure the bow looks neat and the colour goes with that of your dress. You can even use a safety pin to pin the bow onto your dress. This way you can take it off whenever you want.
Note: Since most bow back dresses showcase a bare back (or a plunge back) you will do well to exfoliate your back with a body scrub to make it smooth and moisturize it to avoid having any dry patches. Also, it goes without saying that your back should be hairless as you don’t want to be showing your hairy back to the world. You can use a bronzer or a tinted moisturizer to cover up any marks or blemishes on your back to create the illusion of smooth skin.
