1/ High Back

High backs offer the most back coverage, sweeping right up to the nape of the neck. High backs appear on sleeveless and sleeved designs, and can pair with high necklines or deep Vs. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Adrienne Wedding Dress by PronoviasForrest Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche and Elenco Wedding Dress by Pronovias. 

2/ Straight Back

A straight or mid-back sits just below the shoulder blades, often strapless or supported with spaghetti straps. It’s a great way to have a sultry back moment without sacrificing bust support. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Bohol Wedding Gown by PronoviasPaulanda Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Dominique Wedding Gown by Pronovias.

3/ Scoop Back

Swooping elegantly, a scoop back design is defined by a curving dip in the back line of the bodice, often scraping just beneath the rib cage to show off those shoulder blades. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Catalina Wedding Dress by Moonlight BridalAethra Wedding Dress by Pronovias and Dolce Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche Bridal.

4/ Deep V Back

A deep V back typically plunges further than a scoop, but due to the straight lines it does tend to open up less on the horizontal axis and meets at a sharp angle. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Fernanda Wedding Gown by Marchesa PronoviasSutton Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche and Eureka Wedding Dress by Pronovias.

5/ Backless

The entire back is exposed in this sexy yet endlessly elegant back style which trails down from the shoulders, skims the sides of the torso and meets back at the tops of the hips. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Paiton Wedding Dress by Moonlight BridalBohol Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Chicago Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche Bridal. 

6/ Keyhole Back

A keyhole offers more support and structure than other open back styles, with a cheeky opening dropping down from the nape of the neck, which can extend as far out as the arms and down to the waist in a diamond shape. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Suzanna Wedding Dress by Moonlight BridalAdrienne Wedding Dress by Pronovias and Kaylee Wedding Gown by Moonlight Bridal.

7/ Cowl/ Draped Back

Similar to a cowl/draped neckline, except on the back of the bodice. As a back style, a cowl or draped feature often sinks further down than it would as a neckline, revealing the shoulder blades. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Antiope Wedding Dress by Pronovias, Ribelia Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Abby Wedding Gown by Pronovias.

8/ Corset Back

Corsets have featured in fashion for centuries. A corset back wedding dress features a lacing all the way up and down the bodice like its namesake, enabling a versatile design which can be adjusted according to the wearer’s preference. The modern corset approach has boning through the bodice with intricate buttons going down through the back of the dress. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Joy Wedding Gown by Calla Blanche BridalPhoenicia Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Stefani Wedding Dress by Calla Blanche Bridal. 

9/ Illusion Back

An illusion back, featuring an almost invisible tulle giving a strapless illusion, can mimic almost any back style without compromising on support. The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Hati Wedding Dress by PronoviasMasurian Wedding Dress by Pronovias and Morocco Wedding Dress by Pronovias. 

10/ Halter Back

A halter neckline often results in a lower back or backless moment as the bulk of the dress is supported at the neck, leaving the back to flow as low or high as it will! The dresses pictured from left to right includes the Forrest Wedding Dress by Calla BlancheUluru Wedding Gown by Pronovias and Apollo Wedding Dress by Pronovias.
