Which Wedding Dress Neckline Suits You Best?

Wedding dress necklines play a key role in your wedding day. They frame your face and neck and enhance the main focus— YOU. 

We’ve listed everything you need to know about wedding dress necklines and how to choose the most appropriate one for you. 

1. Sweetheart Neckline

Known as the most popular neckline for wedding dresses, the Sweetheart Neckline is described as both classic and romantic. This creates an illusion that the wearer has more curves — making it the best neckline for those with a square face shape or a rectangular figure.

Best paired with: Demi Boost Inserts to further enhance your bust or create the illusion of a fuller chest.

2. Off-the-shoulder Neckline

Off-the-shoulder neckline provides a regal feel and goes well with almost any sleeve style. It draws attention to the upper part of the body so it’s best for brides with wider hips and pear-shaped figures.

Best paired with: Perfect Boost Inserts to boost up to one full cup size.

3. Plunging Neckline

The name says it all; a plunging neckline is perfect for a daring and confident look. This neckline looks good on almost all body and face shapes as it elongates the neck and lengthens the torso.

Best paired with: BOOMBA Body Tape to give you that extra lift and support without wearing a bra.

4. Straight Across Neckline

Straight across neckline is known for its “modern and clean” look. It has a simple cut, yet it emphasizes the décolletage and collarbones. This neckline looks best on brides with broader shoulders.

Best paired with: Perfect Boost Inserts to help you create a subtle boost of cleavage.

5. Queen Anne Neckline

Queen Anne Neckline has a regal cut highlighting a collar at the back, and a dipped neckline, usually a scoop or v-neck cut, at the front. This cut is best for brides with a round face as the angular shape of the neckline balances the jawline.

Best paired with: Demi Boost Inserts as they provide a boost in size and extra security from wardrobe malfunctions.

6. Scoop Neckline

Scoop Neckline has a U-shaped design that dips into the chest, showcasing subtle cleavage. Brides with athletic or petite body shapes will look best in this neckline as it accentuates the bust area.

Best paired with: Demi Boost Inserts for an instant boost in cup size and to prevent any nip slips.

7. Sheer Bodice

A sheer bodice gives the illusion of skin under the dress where it’s usually layered with nude-colored fabric. This type of wedding dress looks good on most brides especially when paired with the right neckline.

Best paired with: Subtle Lift Inserts to give you that extra *wow* factor when you walk down the aisle.

8. One Shoulder Neckline

This neckline perfectly frames the shoulders and collarbones. When matched with the right skirt, this neckline can look great on any body shape.

Best paired with: Invisibra to have enough coverage without the bulky bra lines.

9. Square Neckline

A square neckline looks best on people with pear-shaped bodies. This neckline helps create the illusion of a skinnier neck while slimming the shoulders.

Best paired with: Magic Padded Sticky Bra to add two cup sizes discreetly.
