Sheer, Subtle and Sexy: the Illusion Neckline Wedding Dress


Wedding dresses are pretty much the highlight of a wedding aside from the event itself. From strapless to full on sleeves, brides have plenty to choose from, but if you want that balance of a sexy but subtle look, an illusion neckline wedding dress might be suitable for you. This type of dress is usually a simple neckline gown but with a sheer coverage that gives it the illusion. Moreover, designers are using detailed embroidery, beadings and sequins or lace to make the dress more sophisticated.

So if you want to ditch the usual strapless gowns, browse through some of our picks for you.
