Beautiful, plunging necklines are certainly seem terrifying. It’s a pretty risqué cut that glides down further than your average V-neck and it’s certainly not for the faint of heart. Once the super-sexy trend was spotted on the red carpets, there was no doubting that Hollywood’s hottest were on to something.
While the red carpet’s a great place to push fashion limits, a formal event like prom can be a little trickier when it comes to pulling off a more daring look. With potentials for wardrobe mishaps, we’ve put together a couple of top tips on how you can pull off a plunging neckline.
While there’s certainly no need to take a great big plunge like some of the dresses we’ve seen on the red carpet, it’s easy enough to scale things back a little with a style that boasts a more modest cut. That being said, opt for a neckline that has a subtle illusion panel in the centre to offer more coverage.
Also, pick a well-fitted flare skirt to help balance your plunging neckline. If your dress code isn’t too strict, you could even choose a slim fitting little black dress to show off those curves. Once you’ve found the perfect plunging neckline, here are a few tips to keep in mind and help you pull the look off with grace.
Top Tips for Wearing a Formal Dress with Plunging Neckline
- Use double-sided fashion tape – apply it before leaving home to keep absolutely everything in place, and then tuck a couple of extra strips in your bag just in case you need them later.
- Accessorise your gorgeous dress with a layered choker to complement your neckline.
- Don’t forget something warm to cover up with just in case you feel the chill.
What to Wear Underneath
Once you’ve looked through the extraordinary collection of 2018 prom dresses at Peaches Boutique, it’s time to consider what to wear under your gorgeous, plunging dress.
If you want your bra to stay out of sight, choose a deep plunging variety that matches the silhouette of the dress. Some varieties that close at the front have a low centre gore that tacks against your body. Others have a deep plunge and thin centre gore – you’ll often find push up bras in this shape.
Push up bras are actually great for many events, and especially fun under plunging necklines. If you wear a bra without a push up, the front may easily glide up and over. But, a push up bra is a great way to show off a little skin.
Or, if you like, you can wear a dramatically deep front bra which is made specially for such deep front dresses.
Sporting a plunging evening gown is a great way to make your prom or homecoming entrance well worth remembering. You might even be mistaken for a red-hot celebrity! Just remember to make sure you follow the event’s dress code and wear the right undergarments, and you’re sure to pull off this sensational style at your next formal event.
