What is a sweetheart neckline formal dress?

A sweetheart neckline is characterized by the top part of the neckline like the shape of a heart at the bust line and rises over the top of the breasts. This neckline is suitable for both small and larger busted women. For small busts, you can choose a formal dress with in sewn bra cups which gives the bust area a bit of shape and lift, then wear an additional strapless push up bra or adhesive push up bra to give your bust more definition and cleavage. For fuller busts, the sweetheart neckline gives a flattering look that balances out and accentuates your cleavage very well. You can opt to go braless if the dress is a correct fit or wear with a strapless bra for added support.

The best thing about this neckline is that it elongates the face and provides a very balanced and proportional look to the overall silhouette. The collarbone and décolletage is considered one of the many alluring parts of a woman’s body and the sweetheart neckline, being an open neckline allows attention to be brought to this upper body and face. This neckline is a flattering and modest way to create, enhance and show of your curves perfectly (given that you don’t allow too much to show).

Recommended for;

  • Petite women with a smaller bust as the sweetheart neckline can be worked to give the illusion of a fuller chest with the right undergarments and padding.
  • Large busted women can totally make the sweetheart neckline look sexy by accentuating the cleavage.

Sweetheart neckline formal and evening dresses, as well as bridal and wedding dresses come in a wide variety of different styles; strapless, strappy, short sleeves and even long sleeves.

Sweetheart necklines also come in two varieties; a soft sweetheart and a sharp sweetheart. The soft sweetheart neckline is more rounded at the point where it sits in the middle, between your breasts whereas a sharp sweetheart is more defined and “sharp” point which highlights the sweetheart neckline shape more prominently.
