V-neck dresses can be daring or demure. V-neck bridesmaid dresses are named such because of their shape, triangular like “V” and it can either plunge past the bustline, or sit just below the clavicle, for a more modest look.
Perfect for petites, or anyone who wants to long and lean, V-neck bridesmaids dresses are always a flattering choice. If you are petite, avoid round necklines and styles that break up the waistline. A deep V-neck black dress elongates the frame, and lengthens the torso. The deeper the plunge, the taller you’ll look. Just imagine the possibilities with a pair of sky-high heels. A V-neck bridesmaid dress also makes the neck look long and swan-like, a must for anyone with a shorter neck. Combining a V neck bridesmaid dress with vertical style lines or princess seams, as in the Alfred Sung D665 dress, creates the ultimate illusion of height.
If you are concerned about 'staying in place' in bridesmaid dresses with a V-neck, some gowns place a bit of illusion sheer mesh for modesty, which also helps keep it laying flat. For gowns that don’t have this feature, or if you decided to go bold with a pair of scissors and snip snip it out, that is what style tape is for.
If you’ve ever wondered how they avoid wardrobe malfunctions in Hollywood, style tape is the answer to deeply plunging V-neck bridesmaid dresses. It is double-sided tape that comes in small strips that you can apply to the underside of your gown, and then stick it to either your skin, or an undergarment, to hold everything perfectly in place. In a pinch, double sided tape works just as well. It’s also a good rule of thumb to keep a few pieces of extra tape in your purse for touchups.
