V-neck Wedding Dress

The neckline on a V-neck wedding dress is created by two straps plunging down towards the bust to create a ‘V’ shape. The V-neck is timeless thanks to its ability to flatter by elongating the neck and silhouette to narrow the gaze and create height, making it a great choice for round face shapes and petite brides.

Brides looking to ramp up the sex factor could consider wedding gowns with a low, plunging v-neck, such as Sottero and Midgley’s ‘Tamirys’ gown, accentuated by lattice patterns of Swarovski crystals and pearls. This deep plunging style is hailed as one of 2019’s hottest bridal fashion trends and brides can ramp it up with a sleek ‘V’ or opt for a softer, more feminine feel with a lace edge.

There is also the option to choose a V-neck with illusion fabric or embellished detailing for the feeling of a little more security, such as Sottero and Midgley’s sultry Maui sheath dress; the plunging V-neckline on the bodice is adorned with sparkling beading and shimmering Swarovski crystals for extra coverage through understated glamour.

You can even give your guests the double ‘V’ treatment in a gown with a matching plunging V-neck back. This sleeveless guipure lace Sophia Tolli fit-n-flare gown has a deep V-neckline, illusion lace V-back that sweeps down into a court length train.
