  1. V NECK:

Good: V-necks are good for apple shapes and hourglass figures.

Bad: Not meant for either too smaller or too bigger bust/


With a shape of a top half-heart, this is the prettiest neckline for ladies who want to be all feminine on their D-day.  It exposes the central part of the neck and well suited for medium to heavy busts. This is the most sensational neckline due to the romantic connotation and Cinderella reminiscence it creates.

Good: Best for fully-endowed bust

Bad: Not a good idea for women with décolletage impairment


For traditional wedding, this is the modest choice as it gives extra coverage for an elegant look. Generally, women prefer bateau neckline with lace overlay to give the hint of skin through the fabric. As this neckline tend to enhance the bust area, so you avoid it.

Good: For small cups

Bad: For heavily endowed bust


Full of elegance and romance, this is the most DESIRABLE neckline among all. But wait, it’s not meant for everyone. If you have got a gorgeous necklace, it would be your dearest but if you have heavy upper arms and bust, it’s your enemy. Also, for women with small bust, strapless would do no good to you.

Good: For great collarbones and shoulders

Bad: For small cups


It looks amazing on almost all body shapes; such is the grandeur of off shoulder. It sits below the shoulders to emphasize your collarbones and shoulders. It would add oomph to the look of women whose bust is medium to fully-endowed. But if you have a heavy upper arm or not confident carrying off-shoulder, better go for the portrait.
