Illusion back wedding dresses by Martin Thornburg

An illusion back wedding dress is a tasteful way for you to show off a little skin. The beauty of an illusion back wedding dress is that it makes details look like they are floating on your body—the illusion fabric keeps these details in place, but no one will even be able to tell it’s there. Get the lace or beaded back you’ve always wanted without having to cover up. 


What is an “illusion” dress?

An illusion back uses a sheer, nude colored mesh that makes the fabric look almost invisible. This can be used to add support to the dress, incorporate more detail, or make features like lace and beading appear to be effortlessly floating. An illusion back is both beautiful and subtle and can really elevate your look.
