MrsNeutrino :  some do, most don’t. It helps when your dress has been tailored so the netting is tight and laying flat. It’s not flattering on any skin tone when the netting is loose and sagging. Sometimes you have to choose between “nude” which doesn’t work for everyone, or ivory, which will be much lighter and many girls with dark skin feel like it makes them look ashy. A stretch netting helps a lot because you can get a tighter fit which helps it blend into your skin.

MrsNeutrino :  A couple questions. Have you tried this style dress on yet? I ask because I was convinced I would have a long sleeve dress either illusion or lace and I HATED it on me so you may be wasting your time trying to find a dress that you will end up not loving. If you have tried it and you do love the style on you did you ask your bridal boutique if they have suggestions of designers that let you customize the dress? A lot will let you change different aspects of the dress so you just have to be forthcoming with questions. I think it sucks that a lot of dress designers don’t show the diversity of their options on their websites so I feel for your frustration. 

I’ll do some hunting for you but definitely talk to your boutique(s) and ask what they offer.

Im not much help because I really dislike illusion necklines/sleeves/backs. I hate the way it crinkles when you bend. 

Plus,  I’m mixed. Lol.
