Under a light summer outfit or a fancy wedding dress, it’s not always easy to know which undergarment to wear. , each woman can add a touch of femininity by revealing more or less of her cleavage. Each bra allows you to define a particular shape. Plunging neckline or crew neck, there is something for everyone. This guide is designed for you.
V-neck or crossed neckline
Ideal for a small chest, the V-neck is perfect for women whose measurements are between an A-cup and a B-cup. This cutout, which reveals part of the bust as far as the middle of the chest, tends to elongate the silhouette. For a glamorous and sensual look, we recommend choosing a demi-cup bra, a sexy semi-full coverage bra, or a plunge style. These underwired undergarments may have multi-way, straight, crossed or halter straps depending on the design. For a very feminine look, a lace accessory that covers the cups is ideal to reveal under a half-open shirt.
Square or straight neckline
The square shape reveals the sensuality of voluptuous beauties. Perfectly suited to the silhouettes of women with larger chests, the square neck shines a spotlight on feminine curves. Directly inspired by the cut of XVIIIth century dresses, which often had a straight indent decorated with white lace, this elegant neckline can be both chic and conservative. The demi-cup underwire bra, an essential wardrobe staple, is sure to showcase a large bust.
Inseparable from wedding lingerie but also an ally of strapless little summer dresses, the strapless bra is a must in every woman’s lingerie drawer. The bustier, usually designed with removable straps, is a sophisticated undergarment that finds its place halfway between the bra and the corset. However, when we mention the bustier neckline we are generally referring to a bandeau bra, well-suited for open-back styles. The cups often only cover half the bust and have a fairly low-cut center. The chest is slightly raised, as with a corset, thanks to mild pressure exerted under the chest. We love this style that leaves the shoulders bare. It is recommended mostly for small breasts, since it provides only light support.
A cowl neckline refers to a dress or a top that offers a fluid, often pleated, opening at the neck. This neckline, defined by the draped effect of the fabric, is perfect for small busts since it creates an impression of volume at the chest and cleverly attracts the eye. To augment your silhouette in this way, we will bet without hesitation on a push-up bra that enhances the chest without necessarily adding additional volume- some styles are, however, available with padding.
Wrap or sweetheart neckline
The sweetheart neckline is ideal beyond a C-cup. With its very structured and defined shape, it is reminiscent of a merrywidow or bustier. This neckline is a favorite for evening dresses for example, which will enhance generous busts. Padded bras provide optimal support of the breasts and assure sexy cleavage for a full-on pin-up look. For a harmonious retro style, for bottoms we suggest to opt for vintage-style high waist panties or a shorty.
Round neck, crew neck or scoop necklines
Very popular for tops and T-shirts, the round neck suits all body types. With a little tomboy side, it is especially recommended for women with smaller chests. Lovers of understated fine lingerie won’t be able to resist an underwire-free triangle bra. For curvy women who would like to slim their silhouette, avoid this rounded neckline which would only add an impression of volume.
Very elegant under a dressy blouse or a cocktail dress, this fitted style which reaches very high on the neck, forming a small rounded neckline, is perfect for a femme fatale style. This elegant cut, which generally leaves the shoulders bare, perfectly suits women with an inverted triangle shape. The best choice for this cut is a multi-way bra that can be attached in the back to stay perfectly invisible.
“BB” bequeathed this iconic 1950s neckline, ideal for slim figures. This neckline, which leaves the shoulders bare with a discreet plunge between the breasts, is very present on wedding or evening dresses. This shape divides the silhouette with a unique more-or-less horizontal line. The lingerie of choice for the Bardot neckline remains the strapless bandeau bra. We prefer a molded-cup or foam style rather than an unlined full-coverage bra, which could be seen if the top has a slight V.
