Best neckline for small chest?
Posted: Jan 23, 2012 7:55 PM

I have been looking at dresses online and I have an idea in mind of what I would like. However, I am wondering what is the most flattering neckline for someone with a smaller bust - an A cup to be more specific. I would prefer to not have to wear cup inserts, however a padded bra is a definite. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

My mom is smaller up top, and her wedding dress had a heart-shaped neckline. It was cute and flattering, I think. Of course, the rest of the dress was covered in nasty 1980's silk rosettes, but that's neither here nor there...

When I'm looking for fashion advice, I like to look at celebrity pics. I figure its like an indirect way of getting style advice from celebrity stylists. If it helps ya brainstorm, here's some pics of small-busted celebs in different necklines.

I think either a high cut round neckline or a high neck dress would enhance a small bust. But I think you're best bet would be a Sabrina neckline and find thin small and small accessories to accentuate the bust. A small pendant with thin chains would look best

For getting married is the most important thing, you should consult some wedding dress experts i think. i bought my dress at InWeddingDress.com and their customer service is excellent! Very patent and professional. They help me solved many problems, including some other wedding related problems.

Add weight to your top with sequins or beads.
A square neckline or spaghetti straps will be flattering.
