This week, we’re breaking down some of the basic styles of wedding dresses, to show brides how to pick the most flattering and functional gown possible. We’ve already told you about lace wedding dresses, and today our focus is on shape rather than material: the v-neck wedding gown.

A v-neck neckline is almost universally flattering. The shape draws attention to your face, and suits many different body types. V-necks flatter pear shapes, create the illusion of a smaller waist for those who want fake curves, and show off the existing curves of brides with an hourglass shape. Brides with large busts may want to avoid a very deep neckline, which can make you look top-heavy if not balanced with the right skirt.

A deeply plunging v-neck can work for slim girls with small chests, or for those who want to show some décolleté, as seen on the two models above.

V-necks also pair well with many different kinds of skirts. A-line is a popular, flattering choice, as seen above, but we’ve also seen v-necks paired well with full ballgowns, mermaid-style skirts and body-skimming silhouettes.

V-neck wedding dresses can also feature a variety of sleeve options, balancing out long sleeves and creating a dramatic look with cap sleeves.

An angular neckline is also a great place for embellishment, such as ruffles, embroidery or beading.
