Your shoulders and collarbone will look lovely and proportionate, all thanks to the halter neckline dress you choose. In addition to looking good on many different body shapes, this cut is incredibly flattering to larger busts and those with a rectangle or inverted triangle body shape.

The emphasis is on the bust with this neckline. It’s ideal for those with an apple or heart shaped body. In addition to the apple and pear shaped body it also flatters the hourglass, the rectangle and inverted triangle body shapes. Getting the cuts’ depth right is the key to pulling off this neckline. Those with smaller busts should select safer styles. Selecting a deeper V-neck can draw attention to your bust and help to create a more proportionate overall appearance, especially if you have bigger breasts.

3. Asymmetrical Neckline

This asymmetrical neckline may be used with a variety of other looks. Any figure can pull off this neckline, specially those who wish to show off their shoulders without exposing too much flesh. It’s a terrific choice for those who are more on the rectangular body shape, as it helps soften the otherwise rigid outline. The inverted triangular body form is another shape that looks good in this neckline.

4. Turtle Neckline

This is the ideal winter neckline since it offers protection from the cold without sacrificing on style. People who are blessed with a long neck will particularly benefit from this neckline’s design. In addition, it looks well on the hourglass, pear, and apple body shapes and also those with longer faces.

This design scheme feels both sophisticated and antique. The collarbones and neck are brought into focus by this neckline. If your body type is more pear or an apple, this neckline will highlight your feminine curves. It is as flattering on pear shape as on hourglass shape and apple shape. This neckline is flattering since it accentuates the shoulders without exposing too much skin.

This cut brings the neckline, chest, and upper body into focus. Furthermore, it draws attention to the neck and makes it appear longer. Finally, as the tiny waist is emphasized, it looks best in pear and hourglass shapes.

This is a classic bridal neckline and is a great way to draw attention to your collarbone and cleavage. Those with an hourglass, rectangular, or pear shape body will look especially lovely in this neckline style because it produces the illusion of narrower shoulders and balanced broader hips.

8. Crew Neckline

If you want to draw attention to your face and shoulders, go for a classic, uncomplicated neckline like the round neck. Both hourglass and pear-shaped figures will look great in this cut. Those with smaller breasts and shorter necks can also benefit from this neckline style since it gives the impression of a fuller bust and longer torso. Those with broader shoulders might also benefit from this neckline, as it shadows the shoulders and gives it a leaner appearance.

Who would have guessed that a difference in the neckline is all it takes to change your look and define your body type. Make sure you follow the list to bring out the best features of your body and highlight your natural curves. So, which of these necklines is your personal favorite?
