Choosing your bridal blouse can be a difficult decision. There are a lot of things to keep in mind - the neckline shouldn’t be deep, the sleeves shouldn’t be too tight, the length shouldn’t be too short and the back, well, shouldn’t be too revealing. Keeping all these things in mind, let’s look at the aesthetics. For the bride who has a bigger bust, choosing the right neckline will not only accentuate your curves in a pleasing manner, it can also change the complete look of the lehenga! Read to know more about the necklines that you can choose from!
1. The Broad Square Neck!

The neckline actually draw attention towards the collarbones, rather than the bust area. You can go sleeveless like Bips or try elbow-length sleeves with embroidered details which also complement this style. You also get a good chance to show off your neckpiece!
2. The Sweetheart Neckline!

It is super-feminine and highlights the natural curves while not taking away attention from the other aspects of the outfit.
3. If You Want Some Layering!

This is the cut you must refer to - a tube-style blouse inside and a jewel neckline in the outer layer. The delicate tie ups don’t become the focus point and the patterned borders running across the jacket makes the whole outfit beautiful!
4. The Triangle High Neck!

It automatically takes away attention from the bust area as visually it draws focus towards the centre of the blouse. It’s a great style if you are looking to get fancy buttons in front.
5. Go low, low, low!

It is the best when you are wearing a short necklace. Drape your dupatta in the way you like, to highlight the cleavage or camouflage it. It’s surely a gorgeous neckline.
6. The Collared One!

The mandarin collar with a slight ‘v’ cut and the front opening along with elbow-length sleeves makes this one a classy number. To drive away attention away from the bust, get embroidery done towards the centre and along the bodice just like it is in the picture.
