Neckline Selection for Brides

Vera WangFor many women, sensuality is expressed through the choice of a neckline, but how much is too much? Anything too obvious is seldom appropriate. The neckline of a wedding dress frames the bride’s face and shoulders, and is critical to emphasizing (or deemphasizing) her bosom.

For a small bosom, a deep V-neck is always flattering and a carved racer-front or narrow halter creates a sleek, sexy look. For a full bosom, choose a neckline that can hold extra stays or an additional layer of stretch lining for support. I recommend a crumb-catcher neckline as it flatters all sizes.

In all cases, err on the side of discretion – even high necklines can be provocative if combined with an element of surprise, such as a low back. – XO, Vera

Speaking of necklines, I wonder what Vera would think about the low necklines worn by Selena Gomez and her friend at the Beats Music Launch Party last week.  It was certainly a plunging V-neck gown.
