However, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what works for your body shape.

Below are the different types of necklines and their features. These popular necklines are loved by brides everywhere.

Sweetheart Neckline Wedding Dresses

The sweetheart neckline is the top choice amongst many brides because it is a classic neckline. This design forms a heart shape in the middle and matches all types of brides, whether she is petite or busty. A sweetheart neckline wedding dress can create an illusion of bigger bust for petite brides. For brides who are busy, this neckline will highlight the decolletage in a sophisticated way.

Asymmetrical Neckline Wedding Dresses

An asymmetrical neckline is styled in a way that one side of the neckline is higher than the other so that it covers more of the shoulders and collarbone. This design is very close but still slightly different from the one-shoulder neckline as the straps do not run over the shoulder. Asymmetrical necklines give out an edgier, less traditional style. For brides with wider shoulders, this neckline will frame them beautifully.
