She should try Elizabeth Fillmore or Nicole Miller dresses.  They both have flowy low-back styles.  I’d be surprised if you could find strapless and low back in a silky fabric.  They just have no support.

what about a lighter satin, like charmeuse? my dress is strapless with low back, slim a line shape in a light charmeuse satin, because I’m getting married in hot weather! It is corseted, but then I would expect most strapless gowns are?

Have you checked out Claire Pettibone? A lot of her dresses are low-backed, in a light fabric. They’re not usually strapless though, because low backs make it tricky support-wise.

I don’t have photos of me in it, but here’s a link to my dress…http://www.sinceritybridal.com/wedding_dress/3757

its much more fit and flar on me cos I am short and have hips, but it your friend is slim it will prob look more similar to the model photo…there’s a lot of gowns about in this fabric once you start to look, I tried on quite a few as I needed the lightweight material cos of the climate here! I also tried one on similar to the one below…

Low back, fitted, and strapless don’t really coincide structurally.  The solution is getting what they call a “wishbone” which is a rigid steel “v” that frames the backless sides.  It provides tension for a fitted front without requiring straps.
