5 Tips to Choosing the Right Neckline - By Pauline Durban, Founder of Covered Perfectly

Do you know which neckline is flattering to your body?

Many people don’t! This short article covers the different types of necklines and which one will work for you.

The goal of the neckline is to balance your body.

Boat Neck

This style works best for people with a slim neck and shoulders. However; it also works well for women with long necks and a small face.

The boat neck will work if you have a large bust as it draws the eyes up to the neck. 

Do you have a long face? The Boat Neck will work for you too. It’s great for pear, hourglass, and rectangle body shapes.
If you have broad shoulders or inverted triangle shape, stay away from the boat neck, as it will make them look wider.

Drape Neck 

This design draws the eyes to the bust area and works great with a smaller bust and wider hips.

 Drape Neck is great for Apple, hourglass and pear-shaped bodies.

A V-neck is flattering to almost every shape. It gives you a slimming effect (that’s what my mom said, and you know moms are always right).

 It’s especially perfect for women with a round face as well as the curvier and bustier figure.

The V Neck doesn't work if you have a long face, because it will make your face look longer. You would be more suited to a boat neck.

Square Neck 

This is another one that works well for women with narrow shoulders. The square neck also works well if you have a small head.
If you have a square face, you should avoid this neckline.

 While the Square Neck works well with most body shapes, it’s especially good for pear shape bodies.

A great design for a pear-shaped body is a wrap over design.

Scoop neck 

You can add curves to your figure with this neckline. It’s perfect if you have a short or wide neck as it will make it look longer.
This neckline also works well if you have a square face.  

The good news, the scoop neck will work with everybody's shape so it is a very popular neckline.

If you have an hourglass figure…lucky you!

There are very few necklines that won’t work on you. Just don’t wear your tops too tight, and wear a more fitted shape.

So there you have it. Happy Shopping!
