Taking a Closer Look at the Back: A Different Approach for Choosing a Tango Dress

Katharina Joite

Every part of a Tango dress is important. The goal is to find something that offers a great range of motion while flowing perfectly with each and every move you make. It’s easy to get caught up in the material, the color and even the length of the dress. But don’t forget that most people are going to see the back of the dress more than any other part. This means you want something that suits your well and is going to make an impact on your performance as well as your appearance.

Look for Unique Materials

You already have some idea of what materials work best for Tango dresses. However, the back of the dress is a great place to mix things up and add something interesting in the form of a different material. Simple additions like lace to the back can increase the overall aesthetic and give a sexy edge to each and every movement. From an entire back covered in lace to small detailing around the edges, lace brings something new to the dance floor.

Look for Interesting Openings

Tango dresses aren’t necessarily made for covering up. In fact, cuts and openings in the back can increase the appeal of the outfit. When trying on a dress or shopping online, look for dresses that have some type of cut or opening in the back. You can opt for something very revealing or something that just adds a little bit of a hint of what’s underneath. In addition to your appearance, those little or large openings can help you stay cool as you continue to make your way around the dance floor.

Consider the Depth of the Back of the Dress

Sometimes women focus their attention on the depth of the front of their dress. Daring cuts in the front create sex appeal that might seem tough to beat. But in reality, because the back of you is what an audience is going to see the most of, a dip along the spine can really up the ante and create a seriously alluring look. You can even opt for a backless dress if it still has straps that will keep it securely in place. Be sure to find something that isn’t going to be problematic as you make your moves. No one wants to be revealing too much in the middle of a dance.

When the time comes to choose a Tango dress, don’t just look at yourself in the mirror head on. Instead, consider doing a twirl and spending a couple of extra minutes on what you look like from the back. Remember that this is a lot of what others are going to see and you want to make sure that you are wearing something that creates interest. From different material to unique cut outs, this is your opportunity to stand out from the rest and increase your overall appeal.
