5 Spring Illusion Dresses for Women Who Hate Shapewear (PHOTOS)

While an illusion dress won't give the illusion that you've dropped 10 pounds (a girl can wish), it will give the appearance of a more contoured shape. It highlights your figure through color blocking and lines, essentially making this the most flattering dress style this season. I'll even go so far as to say the illusion dress eliminates the need for shapewear because the design does the shaping for you (without restricting your breathing).

Over at The Prowl, we rounded up our favorite illusion dresses for spring that are as bright and colorful as spring dresses should be. Check out this preview of illusion dresses for spring style inspiration!

    Horizontal stripes will always be the don't we love to do. This nautical illusion dress has solid-color side panels that make this look more flattering than all-over stripes.

    To wear a shirtdress without looking like you stole a shirt from your husband's closet, go for one that doesn't hide your shape. This shirtdress cinches at the waist and the center panel narrows your waistline.

    A floral print dress always looks great in spring, though a color blocked version of the pattern will give the dress a slimming effect.
