When you’re choosing your dream dress remember that guests will spend a long time looking at the back of it! That’s why an illusion back wedding dress is the perfect choice. And the ones we've picked out below are truly breathtaking, with each one just as stunning from the back as it is from the front. An illusion back wedding dress offers more support and coverage than an open-back dress too, but it's still striking, sexy and seductive, all rolled into one.
Our Signature Collection is full of gorgeous contemporary designs featuring illusion backs alongside lavish detailing and with a truly luxury feel. Below we can reveal three brand new designs, each one an illusion back wedding dress that’s guaranteed to wow your groom and your guests alike. So, read on to discover more…
A real show stopper
We love this enticing Signature Collection gown. The figure-flattering crepe is perfect for showing off great curves, while the embroidered lace on the bodice is super pretty.
The perfect combination
The bodice is covered in layers of cobweb lace and floral embroidered lace, giving it real depth. The dipped neckline is also perfectly offset by the wide straps, which are cut to flatter the tops of the arms.
The detailing in the lace is just exquisite and offers tantalising glimpses of skin, while still giving plenty of coverage. We also love how the lace trails attractively down the top of the sleek crepe skirt, flattering the waist and the hips.
But the back is why we’re here… It’s a classic illusion back, framed with beautiful lace and with an elegant row of covered buttons down the centre. The lace is as pretty as a picture and continues down the skirt to beautiful effect. Wear this with our sparkling Solstice belt and our modern Deco comb to complete the look.
Mix ’n’ match
And if the illusion back wasn’t enough of a feature, there’s also the lace cut-out train too. Sweeping majestically behind you, it makes a luxurious and contemporary statement. Pair it with our simple, satin-edged Loulou veil for the ideal mix of simple and intricate styling. For a similar illusion back wedding dress take a look at Atlas too.
Bali is a brand new design from our Signature Collection and it certainly has the wow factor as far as we’re concerned! The figure-flattering sheath design hugs the curves, while the head-to-toe sequins and plunging neckline are a look that’s straight from the bridal catwalks.
The modern bodice combines two of the latest catwalks trends; a sexy plunging neckline and illusion-detail straps and back. There’s also a subtle illusion panel across the low neckline, so it looks dramatic but doesn’t compromise on coverage or support.
This fully embroidered dress is also covered in sparkling sequins, making it super eye-catching!
All an illusion
This illusion back wedding dress is just as stunning when you turn around. The low illusion back perfectly frames the shoulder blades, while the chic row of covered buttons provide a stylish focal point. We suggest revealing the back design in all its glory by wearing your hair up in a loose contemporary bun, secured with one of our beautiful Calli hair vines.
Dress it up
We also love this design styled with one of our sparkling belts. Check out Leonie, which is a great match.
A statement piece
And last, but not least, there’s the slinky and seductive skirt that hugs the curves before trailing beautifully to the ground in a pool of exquisite embroidery. There’s no need to wear an underskirt with this figure-hugging style, so you can splash out on more beautiful accessories, like one of our dramatic veils. And, if you like the look of this contemporary illusion back wedding dress, we think you’ll also like our dramatic Wyatt design.
Our brand new Jourdan design is the perfect mix of modern style and classic elegance. It’s a stylish sheath dress with pretty lace sleeves and a gorgeous, catwalk-inspired illusion back.
The stunning bodice combines an attractive sweetheart neckline with three-quarter-length Chantilly lace sleeves. It’s a look that’s delicate and pretty while still providing plenty of coverage.
Layers of lace
Take a closer look and you’ll see that this design features embroidered lace, which has been layered over Chantilly lace and then embellished with clear sequins for a touch of subtle sparkle.
And there’s more…
Turn around and this design reveals another beautiful feature. The stylish illusion back is surrounded by more stunning lace appliqués, alongside a row of chic, covered buttons. The lace also trails seductively over the hips and down the soft crepe skirt, highlighting your curves.
Take it all in
It’s time to step back and admire the full look. The elegant crepe skirt is the perfect accompaniment to the detailed lace, and there’s no need to wear an underskirt with this slinky style. Simply add a belt, like our sparkly Estella, to highlight your waist, and perhaps a dash of sparkle in your hair with our pretty Safia comb. And, if you like this look, you might like our Wren design too, which also has sleeves. Alternatively, for a sleeveless illusion back wedding dress, try River or Phoenix.
