An illusion neckline is a fabulous choice for almost every bride, as it can offer as little or as much coverage as you want. They're normally made using a sheer netting-type material that forms a see-through layer across the décolletage, arms or shoulders and offers ‘the illusion’ of coverage.

It’s a style that’s modest, sexy and attractive, all rolled into one. It’s also a fabulous style for hiding any tricky areas, such as your upper arms. Plus, if you go for a dress with plenty of detailing, you’ll need fewer accessories too.

To inspire you we’ve picked two totally different illusion necklines to show you what a versatile look it can be…


Viva Bride Wedding Dress - Freyja Freyja, available in sizes 6 to 16


Love is in the air

Dazzling Freyja is just adorable. There’s super soft tulle, exquisite embroidery, exceptionally pretty sleeves and so much more. We’re in love!

Cover star

The illusion neckline here offers full coverage and features a contemporary grid-style embroidery that really brings this style bang up to date. Perfect for the modern day princess!


Viva Bride Wedding Dress - Freyja


Pretty perfect

The back is just as beautiful and is a great example of an illusion style. The chic grid pattern and trailing floral embroidery create the appearance of a key hole back. It’s perfect for brides who want catwalk looks while still having plenty of coverage.


Viva Bride Wedding Dress - Freyja


Movement and shimmer

The super soft skirt is given extra sheen and a luxurious feel with a shiny organza layer hidden underneath. Wear this with our 163 underskirt to really give that shimmering skirt movement and volume.

She wears it well

This style also benefits from a little sparkle at the waist, so wear it with our shimmering Estella belt to really highlight those curves.

Ivory or blush?

And, if that wasn’t enough, Freyja comes in both blush and ivory, so you’re guaranteed to find the perfect shade. For a similar style with a little less coverage try Ferne or, for a sleeveless look, try Nicola. You might also like our Platinum Edition Scarlet design too.



Anna Sorrano Wedding Dress - Sierra Sierra, available in sizes 8 to 24


Strike a pose

And now to Sierra, our brand new fishtail silhouette. This design is a great example of how subtle illusion details give a dress instant pizzazz.

Catwalk chic

The wide lace illusion straps are ideal for giving a little extra coverage to the traditional sweetheart bodice, while still being attractively revealing. The gentle V-neckline is also a look that’s straight from the catwalks.

Lace and favour

At the back, the illusion lace adds extra detail and interest while offering structured support and a little more modest coverage. Why not wear this look with a stylish up do, so all that luscious lace is on display?

Vintage glamour

As the dress sweeps down the beautiful embroidered lace of the bodice gives way to that dramatic fishtail skirt, made from layers of soft tulle. Wear this with our 190 underskirt, which has been perfectly designed to give the skirt even more swish and volume. As an added bonus it will also give you some wow factor curves!
