In part two of our mini-series on Bridal styles, we are helping to define the most popular necklines used in wedding gowns. There are so many kinds to choose from-some trendy and some traditional. If you are just starting on your search for the perfect gown, keep an open mind and try on a variety until you find your perfect look!
This neckline sits below the shoulders to flatter a woman’s collarbone and shoulders, with sleeves or straps that cover part of the upper arm. This style will look good on almost all figures.
Good for: Full-chested and pear-shaped women
The sweetheart neckline- which is shaped like the top half of a heart- is a wonderful option if you want to accentuate the decolletage. There are several “degrees” of sweetheart available, and it is easily customized to suit your style.
Good for: Showcasing your neck, chest and decolletage
The halter features straps that wrap around the back of the neck, or a high neck with deep armholes. Both look best on broad shoulders or taller women — 5’7″ and up.
Good for: Great shoulders that want to be shown off!
A U-shaped neckline,that is a universally flattering. It can be cut low, and quite often the scoop will continue on the back of the dress.
Good for: Most everyone
One of the most popular styles, the strapless neckline looks wonderful when paired with either a sweetheart or straight-across square bodice.
Good for: Great shoulders and collarbones
