If you’re wanting something a little bit sexy yet regal and sophisticated, perhaps a gown with a V neckline is perfect for you.
Not only is a V neckline super stylish but it’s also flattering for almost every body type, giving a leaner, longer silhouette. It’s particularly flattering for those with broad shoulders, short necks or thicker torsos… but of course, different cuts of V neck suit different body shapes better. For example, a wide V helps to balance out a pear shape, while a plunging V elongates a petite frame. A high V neck will flatter someone with a long neck, while a low V helps lengthen a short neck.
V necklines are also great for brides with a large bust, but be careful not to wear a V neckline that’s too revealing or lacks the support a fuller bust needs.
Since our eyes are naturally drawn to flesh, a V neckline brings your eyes up towards your face while the ‘point’ of the V also draws attention to the centre, narrowing your silhouette. A V neckline helps to elongate wide, round and square jaws and we love it to be accessorised with a delicate pendant.
