Turtleneck, turtleneck and stand-up collar - are among the shallowest necklines.
T-shirt neckline - also shallow, very built-up and slightly rounded.
Boat neckline - also classified as shallow, it is a horizontal neckline with a more or less rounded cut, which is sometimes tighter, and other times it gently reveals the shoulders and collarbones.
Spanish neckline - horizontal and flattened. It reveals the shoulders, collarbones and upper back, and optically lengthens the neck.
Round neckline - classic, can be more or less cut. It beautifully emphasizes the bust and optically enlarges it.
V-neckline, V-neckline - a popular type of neckline that optically lengthens the neck.

V-neck - similar to a square, is wider, more rectangular and reveals more.
Heart neckline - beautifully exposes the bust and optically enlarges it.
Halter neckline - reveals and exposes the shoulders, completely covering the bust.

How to choose a neckline to fit the figure?

Round or round? How about American or asymmetrical? We have a lot of neckline types, and that's very good - you will choose not only one type of neckline, you will have a choice and you will not have to limit yourself. 😊
A small figure will be perfectly emphasized by a square neckline. This type of neckline will also enhance even the smallest bust. The T-shirt neckline, which visually widens the shoulders, as well as the boat neckline, also fits the small figure.
Stronger figures will look good in a V-neck or an envelope neckline. These necklines rule when it comes to slimming the figure. The same goes for the American neckline, which is extremely stylish and reliable in optically lengthening the figure.
Neckline perfect for a smaller bust - the heart-shaped one optically lengthens the neck and emphasizes the breasts, gently enlarging them, while the boat and Spanish neckline will distract attention from the bust and focus it on the shoulders.
Necklines perfect for larger breasts - the mentioned V-neck and heart-shaped neckline will be perfect here - especially when you want to display your feminine shapes. When you prefer to hide them, opt for asymmetrical necklines that will distract from the bust.
Our tip - if you still have a problem with choosing the right neckline, we suggest: opt for a round neckline. Depending on the depth of the cut, it fits different types of figures. The deep one will make your shoulders and neck slender and emphasize medium and larger breasts. On the other hand, the shallow, round neckline, reaching up to the neck, is perfect for small breasts.
What distinguishes a halter neckline? Its cut resembles a trapezoid and, among other necklines, is distinguished by the fact that it has a built-up top and more cut sides. As a result, the halter neckline exposes the shoulders and, depending on the cut, can also reveal the back.
Depending on the cut, this neckline can have different top finishes - from fancy ties around the neck, through a simple cut under the chin, to a high stand-up collar with a clasp. The halter neckline is most often found next to dresses and various types of tops, the classic ones as well as the short ones that reveal the belly.
Halter neckline - who will it be best for? Certainly for women who want to show off their beautiful arms.
In our offer this type of neckline can be found next to dresses with choker . Sea Seniorita choker dress will be a perfect example of how to expose your shoulders and reveal your back with this type of neckline.
The name of this neckline is not accidental and perfectly reflects its shape. What is the boat neckline characterized by? You will recognize it easily by the fact that it is wide, slightly semicircular and resembles the shape of a boat hull.
The bateau neckline does not reveal much, but the collarbones and shoulders at this neckline are often slightly exposed, which gives a sensual effect and with this type of cut it can look very sensual. This can be seen especially in the case of elegant dresses, as well as oversized sweatshirts and t-shirts.
The so-called V-neck is very popular with casual shirts, t-shirts and blouses. We also offer dresses , which complete this type of neckline.
Also known as the diamond neckline, it is a timeless classic of the genre and one of those types of necklines that suit many figures. V-neckline will emphasize the bust, optically lengthen the figure and slim the neck. No wonder it's one of the most popular.
It looks great in a classic white t-shirt with the addition of sensual jewelry - nothing will fill this neckline so beautifully as a delicate chain with a pendant.
Deep cleavage is often a controversial topic. You have to be careful with such a neckline, especially on larger events and on special occasions where the dress code applies.
A large cleavage can beautifully display your strengths, but also effectively distract from other body parts that you do not like to emphasize. 😉
