Dreamy, feminine wedding dresses are always a favorite. Illusion necklines are a fantastic trend that add a beautiful touch to even the simplest wedding gown. There is something endearing about a white gown with delicate details like lace on sheer fabric. It is both sexy and classic. It is no wonder that more and more brides prefer this design in their wedding dresses.
Here are five reasons why this fashion trend is one of our favorites.
#1 It is a superb option for women who dread strapless designs
Not every bride is comfortable in a strapless dress. Although it may look great, strapless wedding gowns are not high on comfort. The neckline may shift and unless it is perfectly fitted, a bride may keep tugging at it and look uncomfortable throughout the day. Illusion necklines allow brides to carry off the strapless style with a supporting element that is both stylish and beautiful. So, it is a strapless, with straps; could it get any better than that?
#2 Illusion necklines are subtly sexy
You can be sexy without exposing any skin, and this is one trait of illusion necklines. Illusion necklines add instant glamour to your bridal look. Not only do you look more sexy because of the sheer layer, it is a tasteful choice that is appropriate for almost any type of wedding. The demure bride’s femininity is played up and her charm is enhanced manifold with this pattern. Gowns that feature illusion work at the back as well, are a sight to behold. Sheer fabric in the neckline and back instantly make it more sexy, and render a picture-perfect charm.
#3 Illusion necklines eliminate the need for a necklace
The details of these dress necklines are usually so fantastic, that you do not need a necklace to draw attention to your neck and decolletage. Not only can you thus save hours of time searching for the perfect necklace, you can still sport a one-of-a-kind look. For the simpler versions, where the neckline is just a sheer fabric layer without embellishments, you can pair it with a necklace and dress it up.
#4 Illusion necklines suit both mature and young brides
The sheer layer of an illusion gown may be paired with any neckline on the bodice. There are options that end high, or plunge generously at the cleavage. There are enough options in all silhouettes, fabric and designs to suit every bride, whether she is in her twenties or forties, or is slim or curvy.
#5 The details on sheer are fantastic, but not overbearing
The beauty of this neckline is that it brings together fantastic details that subtly enhance the beauty of a gown. When the details are on a sheer layer, they are more visible, and classic. The same details that would look overwhelming on a thicker fabric gown, look pleasant on an illusion neckline. Sparkling accents can be kept to a minimum or used suitably, and it can still look picture perfect.

I personally love it. You can add a unique look to your dress without feeling like you are wearing less dress.
All of these reasons are valid ones and I think the fact that it look completely sexy without having to show more skin is the top reason for me.
I never really liked the strapless design myself, wedding or normal dress, so these are a great way to sort of have that, but not really.
One word. They are SEXY as hell!
That is what I was thinking 🙂
Speaking from the guy’s point of view. This type of neckline is completely sexy as well. So that is a good reason to have one 🙂
Interesting write up. The neckline of my dress is just a sheer fabric layer without embellishments, please what kind of necklace can I pair it with ?
