Necklines To Suit Body Shapes
 
Asymmetric Neckline:
Best with a gown well fitted to the body. Sits better with a smaller bust. Choose a necklace to match the bodice details.
 
Boat Neckline:
Excellent for broad shoulders as it softens the shoulders and accentuates the rest of the body.
 
Cowl Neckline:
Gives the illusion of a larger bust. Best with a drop necklace.
 
Empire Line Dress:
High waisted cut that falls from just below the bust, rather than following the natural waist. It flatters small to medium bust lines and trims a shapely lower body.
 
Halter Neckline:
Enhances the shoulders. Best for a small frame.
 
High Neckline:
Enhances the shoulders. Creates an illusion of being taller. Doesn't require extra accessories.
 
Off the Shoulder:
Shows off shoulders and décolletage. Great for fuller figures as the eye is drawn to the décolletage first. Creates a long, slim silhouette. Choose a simple necklace or choker.
 
Scoop Neckline with Shoestring Straps:
Flattering for a larger bust. Accentuates décolletage and shoulder line. 
Strapless:
Suits most body shapes. Accentuates curves and cinches in the waistline. Can accessorise with a wrap or pash mina in winter. Choose a striking necklace (this will also help draw attention away from broad shoulders).
 
V Neckline:
Flattering line for most shapes and sizes. Especially good for short frames as it gives the illusion of a longer body.
