The Plunging Neck Dress

plunging neck dress, or plunge neckline, is certainly dramatic but generally not a good choice for women with large breasts unless you want a lot of attention centred only on your chest. 

A seriously deep V neck

Every woman is different and you may love this style but I just want to at least make you aware of the problems if you have serious real estate in your bra and for many this is certainly a member of the 'what not to wear' camp rather than a contender of best dresses for big busts.

PS Recently I have revisited this page and decided I am possibly being too prudish. Whilst a deep V neckline is certainly not for me and I start the section below with a general warning, I have added some examples and suggestions for if you do want to go down this route further below.

The Deep V Neck

A plunging neck is related to a scoop neck style but goes a lot, lot further. Some might even call this style a deep V neck or a very low scoop-neck. Either way it exposes a lot of your central torso and cleavage.

The plunging neck is dangerous

The Warning:

You may wish to be daring, or consider it sexy to wear such a style but as I always say, all women with ample breasts know how to show off their assets if they want to and they hardly need advice such as a website like this.

This website is primarily aimed at completely the opposite; showing styles that do not over-emphasise your chest.

The young lady above is actually very pretty but no one is going to give much attention to her face, legs or any other attractive features. If you want men literally drooling over you, and can live with the decidedly unfriendly looks from other women, the plunging neck dress might be for you.

Oh and do not forget, you obviously cannot wear a bra with a plunge neck. That alone will put off many a lady with a generous bust who has not been surgically enhanced. 

One final warning. The fact is that we understand that all breasts lose their perkiness over time. Outside the bedroom men will commonly not see unfettered boobs and may be surprised at the (and I hate to say this) sag factor. It therefore depends a lot on how firm you are, if you are still determined to try the plunging neck dress.

Now I have no idea if the actual examples in this section will accomodate a big bust or any idea of their quality, I am merely trying to provide you some possible ideas. I simply lifted the pictures off Amazon.com.

Whilst at first glance they all look similar, there are many subtle differences. The deep V neckline itself, the hemline, shape, material and sleeve length.

The LBD above on the right is a mini dress and you would need some serious bravado to wear that. Not something I could have personally worn even when I was young enough.

I like the wrap dress picture because it is specifically for plus sizes, something I do not feature enough.

Moxeay® U-Neck Sleeveless Slim Waist Mid-Thigh One Piece Dress

The cocktail dress (above left) is really just a deep V neck, as opposed to a plunge neckline but on a busty woman that can still mean a lot of cleavage on show.

The item on the right is described as a U neck but I think most observers would describe it as a deep V neck dress. It is actually an interesting variation as the top of the V is not the straps.

Finally, I thought I would show some examples of long frocks. The one on the left is a maxi dress whereas the red one is an evening gown.

Deep Plunge Bras

If you are going to wear a plunging neck top or deep V neck dress, there is at least the option of a specifically designed deep plunge bra.

 The Gossard version is available in blush (shown), black or scarlet. The sizes do not unfortunately run that high but do go to (UK) 30E - 38E.

The Wonderbra option comes in either nude or black (as above) and runs slightly higher, (UK) 30F - 38F.

If you can take it, there are more examples and explantions of bad necklines for bountiful breasts - please head back to the page, what not to wear.

However, if you prefer to see which actually suit necklines for big boobs and why, go to flattering necklines.

Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan

The Deep V Neck - A Fashion Mystery

It actually touches on one of those areas of womens fashion I have always found bizarre. If one flashes one's boobs in a day to day setting it is often considered trashy.

However, wearing an identical neckline at a black tie, or evening event, is deemed acceptable. Why is that? There really is no logical explanation.

Even Angela Merkel, the Chancellor (leader) of the German government and one of the most sensible, staid, intelligent, conservative women you will possibly find; famously went for a deep V neck dress at an evening do.

So if it is good enough for the leader of the most powerful country in Europe, maybe it is acceptable for us too?



More Hypocrisy

This goes beyond plunging neckKeira Knightley

When Keira Knightly wore this decidedly deep plunging neck dress at a movie premiere there was no screams of moral indignation.

If a big busted woman wore anything similar, the newsfeed would go into meltdown. Yes it is hypocritical but it will happen, so be warned.

A dangerous top?

As for big busted celebrities wearing plunge necks, I did not have the room (except for Kat Dennings below) but there is a good link here plunging necklines celebrities (although they are not necessarily big busted) showing Vs that go down to the waist.

Warning - It is one of those annoying sites where you have to click a new page for every photo, (which drives me potty!).

Now I have not had many but I occasionally get emails from ladies with implants suggesting I could do more risque styles for them.

Well this one is for you. Whilst regular readers will know it is not my style, if you come from the 'if you got it, flaunt it' school, this may (or may not) be more your style.


Please Spread the Word

If you are particularly interested in fashion; clothes for big breasts; or simply have a top heavy friend that you know might appreciate the site; please help me reach others by tweeting or sharing through any social media you use.

Nothing helps a site like this more than 'normal' people (not clever marketeers) simply sharing a page or two.
