Guidelines to Necklines

The neckline on a dress – whether it be a mother of the bride/groom dress, a prom dress, an evening dress, or even a casual party dress – is a crucial aspect of the gown itself.  Being the closest feature of the dress towards the face, the neckline can be the determining factor if the dress will or will not be flattering on your body shape.

Here are a few tips that will help take the edge off of your dress shopping experience:

Ladies with a short, wide neck:  Look for dresses that have a scoop neckline.
