Glamorous and bold - two words which best describe a plunging neckline. But how many women actually take the risk to carry it off? Or for that matter, how many of them can bare their décolletage with élan?
Many women try to wear a low neckline but fail miserably because they lack confidence. So here are some tips which will help you wear deep necklines and yet carry them off with poise, grace and great élan.
Figure out your body type
Before you opt for a décolleté dress, stand in front of the mirror and take a hard look at your body. Do you have the perfect hourglass figure? Or are you hip heavy? Is your bust too small or too big? Once you are done with this, you will have a clearer idea as to what you should wear.
- A woman with a perfect hourglass figure has nothing to worry about. She is the envy of one and all as she can carry off anything with great aplomb.
- If you are hip heavy, then a low neckline will you shift focus from your hips to your cleavage. You can go for a bold look with an eight to eight and a half inch neckline.
- Well-endowed women have a love hate relationship with low necklines. There is a fine line between looking sexy and vulgar and they must be careful with the number of inches they choose to reveal. Usually a six and a half to seven inch neckline makes them look sensual yet gorgeous.
- If your bust is on the smaller side then you can go wild with your neck lines. Wear a daring gown with a deep neckline and you will be able to draw attention to your shoulders and slender collarbones. It will definitely make you look feminine and sexy.
The beauty lies in details
When you are wearing a low neckline, you should be careful not to pair it up with something that will shift focus from it. Pairing a low neck blouse with a mini skirt of tight pants can be disastrous.You can pair your low neckline with a dressy camisole which will make you look elegant and classy. You can also pair your neckline with a silk scarf which will add a touch of sophistication to your overall look.
Wear a perfectly fitting bra as inadequate support will make you look vulgar. Before you step out of your house, spend a good ten minutes in front of the mirror to ensure that everything is perfect.
Confidence, your best friend
When you are carrying off a low neckline, remember that confidence is what that will make or break your look. Stand erect and maintain eye contact with everyone you talk to in the party. Wear high inch heels for added glam. If you are feeling a little uncomfortable, then you can always pair your low neckline with a chunky necklace that will end just above your cleavage. Remember that no woman ever looked sexy when her shoulders were stooping – posture is very important. And if you have taken the brave step to wear a plunging neckline, then carry it off with a beautiful smile.
