I’m going dress shopping for the first time this weekend, and I’m looking for a backless mermaid gown. Hopefully I will like the look of them on me.
I would love to see everyone’s backless dresses and suggestions for inexpensive backless dresses! I would love to stay under $2k, but I want to see yours no matter how much you spent!!

MrsWFit: Thanks! I love the style of katie may, but i’m a but too curvy for her dresses, I’ve got a large cup size. I actually LOVE your dress from the replica board, and I may go the replica route if I can’t find exactly what I want in my price range. Your body type is actually very similar to mine, so that is the sort of fit I am looking for!

edepp2010: I know what you mean. I’m not curvy per say…no hips or butt…but I do have a large chest. I saw a couple photos of larger breasted brides wearing katie may gowns and thought they looked better on them then on the models 🙂
The replica route was great for me. It took 13 weeks from start to finish and the dress fit me like a glove when I got it in. I’m having very minor alterations done on it, so total I’ll have $839 into the gown with shipping and local alterations 🙂 Seriously cannot beat that! 🙂

There are plenty of pretty backless dresses in that budget you can buy with legitimate designers I should know I work in a boutique and all the mid-range designers are finally getting the hint from the couture ones that backless is in so Spring 2015 have a lot of backless designs. My store’s range is $800-$2700 so thought I would recommend some of the designers we carry since most likely they will be in your range. Also take advantage of the store finder abilities of the desiger sites if you see something you like and wanna try it on near you.

MrsWFit: I hope I didn’t offend you by making it seem like I thought you were cruvy! I just meant that I am curvier than the katie may models, and so are you:) But thanks for the detailed replica info, I’m going to look into it unless I fall in love with something really affordable.
llussier: Thank you SO MUCH! You are a Godsend! Some of these dresses are straight off of my pinterest, but others are designers that I haven’t heard of or are styles that I somehow didn’t notice. I am trying on the Essence of Australia dresses on Sunday, i had already saved the third one you posted, but the first two are TO DIE FOR. Thank you, thank you!
