Why to Choose Sheer Illusion Wedding & Prom Dresses?
Sheer illusion is a classic feature for current formal gowns, wedding dresses, not just for bridal veils. When you browse new collections of wedding dresses, evening dresses, prom dresses and also the mother of the bride dresses, you will find that many of them are designed with illusion sleeves or an illusion extension of the bodice to the neckline. In some styles, the illusion is undecorated; in others, the illusion is a background for lace, sequins, beads, appliques, or other embellishment.
Illusion necklines are already the hot styles welcomed by trendsetters and designers. After years of strapless gowns(still popular styles), fashion designers are offering more coverage for women in the forms of all types of high collars, and illusion necklines. Illusion necklines are sheer, not adding any bulky fabric to obscure the neckline, so a dress with an illusion neckline will most likely be a good choice for the petite bride as long as the gown’s overall style is also flattering. When the illusion neckline has a solid band or collar forming a horizontal line across the throat, it is really a good idea to avoid choker-style necklines. Also, this type of neckline tends to make a short woman look even shorter.
The illusion extends to the sleeves too, aiming to show much elegance and personality. The look is sheer, demure and sweetly sexy at the same time. With a dress featuring illusion sleeves or illusion at the top of the bodice, a woman can look somewhat bare, yet be covered at the same time. All in all, the illusion trend hits the fashion mark for the petite girl because illusion adds no bulk. Avoiding bulky fabric and styling can make petite women look slimmer and taller.
