Do you opt for a wedding dress with a sexy deep plunging V-neck, a romantic sweetheart, an elegant strapless or high-closed neck?
You usually start your search for your ideal dream wedding dress with the silhouette but whether you choose a mermaid, princess wedding dress, fit and flare dress, or A-line wedding dress in all styles you will find dresses with different necklines.

We are happy to help you out with this overview of the many  necklines that you can choose from within the Ladybird wedding dress collection. You can choose from a round neck (or boat neck), sweetheart line, strapless, off-shoulder, V-neck or deep plunging V-neck, Queen Anne or high closed neckline.

Sweetheart Neckline

A sweetheart neckline is super romantic and timeless. A very popular neckline with our romantic brides for many years! This neckline accentuates the décolletage and makes your neck look longer. For brides with a plus size, Ladybird has beautiful wedding dresses with a sweetheart neckline in plus sizes.

Strapless Neckline

A strapless wedding dress accentuates your collarbone and neck and accentuates your waist and skirt. Ladybird offers different variations of the strapless models such as a sweetheart line in the shape of a heart or a straight strapless line. A strapless dress is the perfect dress for brides with a fuller bust – especially the sweetheart line.  A straight strapless neckline is great for brides with a smaller bust.

Off-shoulder Neckline (off-the-shoulder)

The off-shoulder neckline is super romantic and feminine which make this neckline very popular amongst our brides. This style highlights the shoulders and collarbones with its draped sleeves. This line is very suitable for the “pear-shaped” bride with narrow shoulders. Make sure during fitting that you have plenty of room to move (and dance) in this dress. A perfect choice if you don’t find the strapless dress exciting or romantic enough.

V-neck en plunging neckline

The classic V-neckline has been popular for years with brides with an average bust size. This line is less suitable for brides with a small bust as it accentuates your beautiful cleavage and makes you look taller. In recent years, we have seen an increasing demand at Ladybird for wedding dresses with a deep V-neck (also known as a plunging neckline). Super sexy and feminine wedding dresses!

Round neckline or Boatneck

A wedding dress with a round neck, boat neck or bateau neclinke is the perfect dress for the romantic bride with narrow shoulders and a small bust. The boat neckline creates the illusion that your shoulders appear wider. Once made famous by Audrey Hepburn, and recently reintroduced by Meghan Markle.

Neckline with illusion lace

A very popular trend in bridal fashion are wedding dresses with see-through lace – also called illusion effect or tattoo effect. This style is both romantic, feminine and sexy but it offers more support an coverage. Many of the Ladybird wedding dresses feature both lace and tulle in the neckline as well as the back of the dress.

High neckline wedding dress

In a wedding dress with a high neckline you accentuate your arms and bust and create an elegant and sophisticated look. This look is great for brides with a long neck. In the Ladybird collection you will find a number of variations on this neckline, including a high line with playfull transparent lace which covers your skin but still shows your beautiful cleavage.

Queen Anne halslijn

This neckline is a little less known as the sweetheart or strapless neckline, but it is becoming increasingly popular. A Queen Anne neckline usually has a heart-shaped neckline (as a sweetheart) with cap sleeves or shoulder straps. Not to be confused with a halter, because with Queen Anne the dress closes over the shoulders and not at the neck. At Ladybird we use the finest lace in both the shoulder straps and cap sleeves.
