I love illusion necklines but I have found that they have been on the wrong style of dress for me. I’m thinking of buying a dress in the fit I like but getting a simple illusion neck added.
Has anyone done that? Does the addition look obvious?
I’d love to see before and after pics!

Rachaelemma: I actually really, really want to add an illusion neckline to my dress, but I’m not sure how it would look. I plan on bringing it in early next year to have a seamstress look at it.

MrsMeowton: I agree with PP…that dress is amazing.
Rachaelemma: I also really wanted an illusion neckline, but fell in love with (and bought) a strapless. I’m still not sure what I want to do, so I’m following to see any replies…I’m also considering a bolero/capelet so I could be slightly more covered during the ceremony, but mayble strapless at the reception.

Rachaelemma: I’m not 100% sure if they still do it, but there are some bees who can use photoshop and have offered in the past to add or take away things so you can get an idea of what the dress would look like. I know they require a picture of you in the dress and you can ask them to add the neckline or a sash etc. Just search the boards and send a message to the bees or maybe you can create another post asking for some help with photoshopping it in to give you an idea of how it would look. Good luck 🙂

MrsMeowton: your dress is gorgeous! I know what you mean, it’s difficult to know whether it will end up being too much NAND that’s my concern too.
Looking at your dress, maybe a really simple illusion neckline would look great where the lace from the bust just goes slightly further up your chest or maybe up the sides, and then the rest would be just sheer material and a really simple neckline? A bit like this:
amanda.417: I was thinking of a bolero too but I don’t know if it would be plain enough for me! I like the idea of a sheer back and buttons going all the way down, and it being striking but quite plain like the pic above. Are there any boleros out there that are just plain sheer material?
Mez03: that’s a great idea!! Once I have officially got my dress I will post photos and see if someone could kindly photoshop it. I would nwver have thought of that, thank you!
Is is anyone else a bit nervous that if they add an illusion neckline that their neck would look a bit short?
Would you think of going for illusion straps? They might be less intrusive of the style of the dress and a safer option if I don’t feel daring! I think I have major fear of missing out when it comes to the illusion neckline!

may16: It’s Allure 2701. I got it from a local bridal salon. I actually ended up selling it in favor of another dress haha, but yes, it was quite pretty.
