No feature of a wedding gown whispers seduction quite like the neckline, and designers' current preoccupation with the plunge ensures the latest collections are awash with head-turning creations.
From subtle sweethearts that sculpt the decolletage and smack of old school glamour to deep V-necks cut toward the naval, plunges can be as demure or dramatic as you please.
Combine billowing long sleeves and sweeping skirts for a more understated, classic look, or pair with cut-outs, nude panels, side splits and open backs for uber sexy skin baring styles.
Ultra elegant plunges feature fitted corsetry, exposed boning and delicate details such as beading, embroidery and floral appliques, with the hour glass silhouette, not to mention - the element of romance - further exaggerated with fishtail and fit & flare skirts. Alternatively, a timeless ballgown combined with a daring low cut perfectly fuses vintage with modern fashion to spellbinding effect and beautifully complements all body types.
For a modern, wow worthy statement, pick a 'new' lace such as floral or mosaic, or opt for dotted tulle or a touch of Art Deco style metallic sparkle. With an array of deep V-necklines available in boutiques across Cornwall & Devon, here's our top pick of the latest fashion-forward designs and where to find them...
