Sweetheart Neckline Bridal Gowns

One of the most popular wedding dress necklines, the sweetheart neckline resembles the top of a heart and accentuates decolletage. Universally flattering, it gives a longer and  more lean appearance. If you love this style but have a larger bust or prefer something that is more modest, you can choose a semi-sweetheart neckline, which is a bit higher up on the chest.

Plunging Neckline

A plunging neckline is one that dips low to accentuate the decolletage. Not only does it elongate the torso, the deep V adds a sexy flash of skin. Most low dips may be covered with an illusion fabric or paneling in case of wardrobe malfunction happens.  There are brides who prefer to rock the style without any illusion fabric. The plunging neckline style is best for those who want to wear long sleeves on your nuptial day as a plunge is a great way to balance out the coverage.
