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!
