Dramatic, deep plunging necklines (aka very deep-v neck tops) are one of the hottest trends in dresses and especially wedding dresses this year. To be honest, I wasn’t initially a fan of this trend since I’m small chested and felt like I had no cleavage to show but this trend has really grown on me. Deep plunging necklines are surprisingly flattering on all bust sizes and the nice thing about being small chested is that it ends up looking more classy rather then sexy, which is totally fine with me!
How to Wear the Plunging Neckline Trend:
- Wear it with a sticky bra: If you’re small chested like me, I recommend wearing it with a silicone sticky bra since it’ll help add a cup size to fill in that space. If you want to add extra cleavage there’s sticky bra’s that literally lift up your boobs to make them more perky. If you’re bigger chested I recommend wearing breast petals instead but make sure your dress isn’t too thin or tight since sometimes the outline of the petals can show through.
- Pair it with a dainty necklace and/or fashion-forward earrings: It’s best to keep your chest bare, but if you must accessorize I recommend wearing a dainty necklace and going more fashion-forward with the earrings. The plunging neckline naturally elongates your figure so the last thing you want to do is interrupt that with a chunky necklace. Statement earrings though are a great way to stylize the look in a complimentary way and showcase your personal style.
- Cinch your waist: Most dresses with a deep plunging neckline come with a cinched waist or strap that you can tie and use as a belt. If it doesn’t, I recommend using a belt to cinch your waist. Cinching the waist helps create an hourglass figure and break up the space between your torso and legs. It’ll immediately make your body more flattering and feminine, two things every woman (and man) loves. The other great thing about utilizing a belt to cinch your waist is that it helps keep the dress in place, so there’s less room for nipple slips (oops!).
- Use fashion tape or double-sided tape: My biggest regret when I wore this outfit was that I didn’t use fashion tape to keep the plunging neckline in place. I had a lot of “silicon bra” slips and was paranoid that I was going to keep flashing people. There’s nothing worse then feeling uncomfortable in your outfit since it can disrupt your mood and confidence. Before you leave the house, move around in your outfit and turn to the side. Are you having any nipple slips or is there a wide gap between your chest and the top? If so, utilize that fashion tape to keep it in place. The last thing you need is an accidental nipple slip!
