Reader Request - Backless Gowns

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

It's time I switch it up and add more variety on this blog again. I have a reader request to share with you all from Fashion Pad Reader Fernanda.

Hey lady,

I am looking for a backless gown for a holiday party. Something form fitting and elegant but will not break the bank. Any suggestions?

Yes ma'am. I have some really nice, affordable options for you to get started below. I love holiday party season. Any excuse to get dressed up just gets me so excited, lol.

Aidan Mattox Cowl Back Cocktail Dress 

I think this gorgeous mini makes an elegant statement. Ordinarily, I'm not a fan of the cowl look but when it accompanies an open back....I LOVE it!


This simple dress makes a powerful impact. Although this gown is not form fitting, the material this gown is made from will graze your curves nicely. The racer back design looks awesome on this lovely number.

ASOS Embellished Midi Dress with Open Back 

I am absolutely smitten with the above dress. The back action will surely turn heads and the embellished design is perfect for a holiday party. Please don't wear shoes like the model is wearing...I think they were trying to keep the focus only on the dress. At least I hope, LOL.

SCALA - Long Exposed Beaded Back 

If your party is formal, this dress would be a feasible choice (it comes in other colors as well). The open back dips really low, just right for a dramatic exit ;-)


I could not download the back of this dress for the life of me. It has a semi open back consistent with most halter styles. The cut is classic, however, the cascading ruffles paired with the thigh high slit gives it a modern update.

Aqua Starbright Asymmetric Open Back Midi Dress 

Now this dress is not a gown, however, I had to add it to the list because that exposed back is hot and the price is awesome! I think the dress would work great if you paired it with a statement necklace and/or earrings and an embellished pair of heels.

SCALA - One Shoulder Jersey 

Yet another unique back that will surely be a conversation starter. Most open back designs are rounded but I love the daring 'v' shape above. Sexy!

Good luck with choosing your holiday dress Fernanda! Send pics!
