From deep dips to embellished illusions and sexy slits, these backs will make sure you look just as good receding from the aisle as you do walking down it.

Baby got back! At least, these wedding dresses do. It's no secret that the Fall 2015 bridal fashion week runways were full of fashion-forward trends, but one of the most eye-catching and exciting additions were sexy, open backs.

Our favorite designers interpreted this cool element in many different ways. We saw an influx of details running directly down the middle from Amsale's beaded illusion backs (think: a completely sheer swatch of fabric with only beads sewn down the middle) to Angel Sanchez and Honor for Stone Fox Bride's lone swatch of sheer fabric amidst a sea of visible skin.

Like the necklines, the dipped backs were more plunging than ever. There was the sweeter take like Kenneth Pool's lace-lined cowl backs, to Mira Zwillinger's extra-sharp V.

Flowers, as always, had a moment on the many new iterations of illusion backs. Watters presented a duo of oversized blooms, while Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera let their florals grow freely throughout their sheer backs.

Heavy metals played a major role as well, with fringe and heavily bejeweled bits of fabric found on gowns from designs like Alvina Valenta and Ines di Santo.

Last but not least there was a large showing of slit backs, whether it was the slouchy beaded swatch on one Monique Lhuillier sheath or the flowery V-necked Naeem Khan design.

So, you want to look as good receding from the aisle as you do walking down it? Then click through to see all of the amazing backs from the Fall 2015 bridal runways.
