… Sweetheart

…a popular shape as it suits so many people. The sweetheart neckline gets its name from being shaped like the top half of a heart, and is great option for ladies with a larger bust as it helps to accentuate the décolletage without being too, how to put it, booby. It is also a great way to balance proportions and disguise broader shoulders.

High Neck…

…as seen most recently on Nicky Hilton – a high neckline looks elegant on tall, athletic figures and adds a fashion-forward twist to any look.

V Neck…

…not just for t-shirts – A plunging V neckline on a wedding gown is another way to disguise broad shoulders, and looks more modern than a sweetheart neckline. It also works on ladies with smaller busts who can go for a more daring plunge without all the risks their curvier friends may encounter! (we reckon you can judge how low you can go by the amount of tit-tape needed – the less tape, the deeper you can plunge)

Strapless…

…perfect for elongating  petite brides and making tall brides even more statuesque. (Christina proves that ladies more than blessed in the chest department don’t need to fear strapless styles)

Halternecks…

… add curves to those who are smaller-chested (love the bold colour choice this 90210 star went for to add drama to the tulle gown)
