Such a back is mostly used in sportswear or lingerie but these backs have recently come to the wedding world, too, and they are conquering the brides all over the world.
Racerbacks are amazing for any bridal style and any silhouette: mermaid, ballgown, A-line, and they can bring a relaxed or a refined touch to the dress, everything depends on the look of your racerback and the materials it’s made of. Racerbacks are usually lace, plain or jeweled ones, the latter have the same beading on the neckline usually. If you think that wearing a racerback isn’t comfortable, you can always go for an illusion racerback. Now let’s have a look at some examples for you to choose from.
A lace racerback is a popular detail for boho, relaxed, ethnic, modern dresses, and sometimes even for refined ones – everything depends on the lace used and on the overall look of the racerback. Crochet lace is used mostly for relaxed and boho gowns, more delicate lace will fit a romantic dress. your racerback can differ in color from the whole dress a little, maybe just a different shade to make a statement.
A jeweled or a rhinestone racerback is the most popular option here, it looks just wow! Just imagine this sparkling back – all the eyes will be on you for sure! Such a jeweled racerback is usually continued on the neckline, so you won’t need any other accessories, this sparkle will be enough. A jeweled racerback can be just a strap or cover the rest of the back, too, it can also have buttons or a zipper hidden. There are various configurations with cutouts that are sure to make your wedding dress amazing. Such detailing can fit even the most exquisite type of dress and will make your style super elegant.
An illusion racerback is a great idea if you want this detail but think that it’s uncomfortable to wear or if you are afraid of some wardrobe malfunction.
