For those who are not sure which neckline is which, here is a useful guide. I like bateau and V – neck. Bateau neckline is also known as Boat Neckline and it is great with most neck types. The bateau sits closer to the neck and creates volume and bulk. A lifesaver for women with small bust as it creates an illusion of a bigger bust. A note of advice – It is better not to wear any jewellery when your top has a bateau neckline. What is your favourite?
