The ‘Illusion’ Dress

I don’t think there is anything more alluring or elegant than an Illusion neckline. What are they – basically a sheer fabric on the top of the dress that veils the bride’s décolletage.
Many ‘Vintage dresses’ have the lace Illusion neckline which can look absolutely stunning! These wedding dresses are looking like they are classics and are going to be hanging around the wedding dress collections for some while yet. Because these are classics you should be able to pick this style up second hand and they also sell well as they are not dating quickly as some seasonal couture dresses do.

Almost any wedding dress can be transformed into an Illusion neckline with some clever dressmaking. Many dress shops offer this service where you can add some lace or a sheer fabric to the top. Please remember this should be done by a professional dress maker, do not try to DIY on this one as you may end up ruining your dress which will cost you a lot more in the end!

We have posted a few pics of some of our favorites below, have a browse, we would love to know your thoughts and comments on these or post a picture of your favorite Illusion dress!
