Best Collection of Backless Wedding Dresses in the UK

Our stylists will be more than happy to listen to your desires and show you some wedding dresses with open back that will feel and look amazing on. We love what we do here at Catherine Deane and our passion for helping brides find their dream dress never goes unnoticed by our customers.

Should I Choose a Backless Wedding Gown?

It’s completely your choice and, despite what you might first think, a backless wedding gown can be very flattering on all body shapes. They allow you to show off skin without revealing too much cleavage, making it sexy, but sophisticated and elegant. These styles of dresses usually look best on tall, slender body types; however, the right dress can compliment all body types.

We have a diverse collection of backless bridal dresses with different support levels. It is very important to decide on what underwear you will be wearing with your dress, as you may need to get a design made to compliment specific shapewear. Our collection features open back Gatsby-esque gowns with intricate beading and scalloped layers. We have styles with a plunging “V” neck bodice and dazzling beads and sequins. If lace and silk chiffon in tiers is more your style, we have dresses that will leave you in total awe.

What to Wear with an Open Back Wedding Dress

There’s no doubt that open back wedding dresses are a dramatic choice. Perfect for brides who are happy to make a sweeping statement, it ensures that your gown is not just a showstopper from the front but equally as beautiful from the back. However, there are some things you’ll need to take into consideration when choosing wedding dresses with an open back.

Number one - your choice of underwear.

Fortunately, many low back wedding dresses in the UK will have bust cups sewn into the design to give you the support you need. If your dress already has built-in shapewear and you feel confident enough, you may be happy to go without a bra completely. However, many brides may still feel the need for extra support. If this is the case, tape, a stick-on silicon bra or separate cups may not be the best option. You may find that the tape or silicon irritates your skin or that it comes loose at an inopportune moment!

So, what should you wear with low back wedding dresses?

Most brides will feel more comfortable and confident with extra structured support on their big day. Therefore, you should look for a bra that will give you all the support, lift and comfort you need without compromising the look of your gown. You can usually achieve this with an underwired bra that has soft or padded cups with multiway straps that can be worn low down on your waist. If your gown has a very low plunging back, you may find that a bodysuit in a similar shape works best with the design. Remember, if you do decide to wear a bodysuit, make sure it has a hook and eye gusset for convenience.

A Sustainable Choice

Catherine Deane takes inspiration from nature and the beauty of everything around us. The fact that the fashion industry is the second most polluting in the world gives us motivation to do our part to give brides a more sustainable option when it comes to finding their dream wedding dress. We’re proud to have reached our target of becoming 40% Eco and we strive to improve our manufacturing and operations even further to be kinder to the environment.

The fabrics that we use to line our bridal collection is made using 60%-100% recycled yarns. In terms of packaging, our garment bags are made from bio-degradable corn and hangtags from recycled paper. We are also stepping away from printed marketing materials and replacing them with digital look books.
