- Wedding: September 2014 - White Point Garden, Charleston, SC
My wedding is not for a while (2014), but I’m looking a little bit at dresses already. I’ve pretty much decided that I love backless and low-back dresses. The problem is, I have a large scar spanning from my tailbone up to a little below my shoulder blades. I had surgery when I was young and the scar has always been a part of me. FI is fine with it and thinks it’s just part of me and honestly, I don’t mind it either. The problem is, I don’t want to feel self conscious on my wedding day or have people make comments. What would you do?

It’s all about confidence– buy a dress you love and you’ll be beautiful in it!
If you guy something you don’t love just to cover up some part of you (a part that you seem to be fine with anyway) then you’ll be self concious all day thinking about weather or not you’re fully “covered”. Like you said, it’s a part of you, and you’re comfortable with the scar, as are those who love you.
Rock the backless dress! (And definitely share pictures! I wish I had the confidence to wear something backless! But I could never get over not having a bra for my front end!!!)

Rock whatever you want, you’ll feel great and look great!
I also have a scar, but it’s on the upper half off my arm. I contemplated wearing a sleeved dress (In June?!) because of it, until I decided that I would wear what I wanted and love it.

If you want a backless dress, go for it. Dont worry about your scar. Everyone has things about their body they dont like and you have to let it go. The scar is part of you and your history. Be proud of yourself for what your endured.

Rock a backless dress if that’s the style you like and be confident! Your scar is part of you (a very interesting part, at that), and sounds like you have a great mindset about it. Will people see it? Absolutely. But who cares, as long as you are confident.

Since it sounds like you honestly don’t have any issues with your scar, rock the backless dress! If you’re worried about what others will think – it’s not their wedding. Get what makes YOU feel amazing, scar or no scar.
