What Necklines Do We Provide at Our Wedding Shop in ?
We have several different neckline options in store, below gives you an insight into some of the current trends.
It’s all in the name – The neckline dips down in the front in a V-shape, de-emphasising the bust. Great for B to C cups, not great for a smaller bust.

A halter neck features straps around the back of the neck or a high neck sits higher around the neck with deep armholes. Both look best on taller women of 5’7” and above. Great for broad shoulders, avoid if you have narrow shoulders.
