Tips for Choosing the Best Dress Neckline

Heavy hips: Draw the eye up with details such as beading around the neckline. Be careful not to overdo it.

Full busted: Shop for off-the-shoulder portrait or v-neckline. Keep bodice simple with as few details as possible. Stay away from a high neck and low necklines heavy beading. Stick with a sweetheart or V neckline or off the shoulder.

Small bust: Look larger by adding delicate details and on-the-shoulder necklines and wear a Jewel neckline if you have narrow shoulders.

Broad shoulders: Stay away from necklines that are low and super size sleeves embellished with beads or lace. Stick with lighter beading and simple sleeves. Avoid halter necklines.
