The most popular necklines are:
- Off the Shoulder
|V-Neck style wedding gown.|
Just like the name says, the V-Neck creates a deep v-shaped cut to flatter and show cleavage.
The V-Neckline is perfect for showing off your cleavage if you have a B or C cup size.
You might reconsider this style if you have an A cup or a D+ cup size.
The Sweetheart neckline is pretty, delicate, and found on many of the popular styles of gowns. Its distinguishing look is the heart-shaped top.
The sweetheart neckline is perfect for larger chests, shorter necks, flattering cleavage and bust.
Reconsider this style if you have a smaller chest size.
Scoop necks are reminiscent of the 50s and 60s - something like Jackie O would wear. It is simply a gentle rounded neckline from shoulder to shoulder. This style is usually seen with strap, which can be very thin to about an inch wide.It's a classic look really looks great on any figure type. Perfect for practically anyone!
Reconsider this style if you don't want to draw attention to your chest or neck.
A very simple neckline that is a clean line straight across the chest.
It's very popular on strapless dresses and best suites brides with smaller busts.
Reconsider this style if you are C cup or larger.
The Boatneck shape sits high on the chest and is cut straight across from shoulder to shoulder with a small dip in the center.
This style also suites brides with smaller busts and it frames the face very nicely.
Reconsider this style if you have larger bust size. It also draws attention to the upper arm area, so you might reconsider this style if that's not an area you want to highlight.
Be aware, the boatneck style can also hide your necklace if you are planning to wear one.
|Off the Shoulder|
Off the Shoulder
Off-the-shoulder is quite popular in wedding gowns.
This neckline rests below the shoulder and typically has sleeves that cover a small part of the upper-arm.
Perfect for brides with great shoulders and defined collar bones. This style often flatters full-chested and pear shaped figures.
Reconsider this style if you have fuller arms, broad shoulders, or slouched posture.
The portrait neckline is classic, much like the scoop neck, but there is more fabric around the bust area. This use of fabric creates a softer scoop from the tip of one shoulder the other and "frames" your chest, neck, and face.
Perfect for a pretty upper chest, defined collar bones, fuller arms, and those with longer necks.
Reconsider this style if you have undefined collar bones.
With so many great necklines to choose from in today's wedding gowns, you are sure to find the perfect style to accentuate your best features. Remember, these are only guidelines. You should always try on many different styles to determine what looks the best on you!
