This is the 2nd wedding I’ve gone to this month – ’tis the season for them I skapose! I forgot to take OOTD shots for the first one, BUT I took this with my fab photographer Sung Shin a while back because I had already decided this would be my look at some point.
I discovered this gem online while browsing ASOS and couldn’t resist – not my most sensible purchase but embellished mesh and 3D detailing? …you can’t expect me to pass that up! Anywho, I won’t bore you any longer with my elaborate shopping excuses. Let’s move on to the heart of today’s topic: how-to wear plunging necklines with class.
How to Wear a Plunging Neckline Elegantly
First off, you need to wear the right undergarments. A u-plunge bra works beautifully most of the time (love this one from Bare Necessities), but this baby has a plunge back as well so I had to wear nipple covers.
I don’t really have a large chest so I didn’t have to tape anything in place, but if you need the extra support, definitely make sure to do so! On the other hand, if you have a small chest and want to create extra cleavage, tape can come in handy.

Now, I’m definitely not afraid to show skin, but plunging necklines still kind of intimidate me because I find them somewhat scandalous. I know that’s my inner goodie two shoes speaking, but whatever, it is what it is!
Luckily, I know how to wear them and still look classy. Sidebar: For the record, I’m NOT judging other women for the way they dress – this is just personal preference. You should wear whatever you want, whenever you want! As long as you feel comfortable and confident, you will look like a total rockstar.
For those of you who share the same concern, it’s all about balance. Take this dress for example, it has a plunging neckline but the a-line skirt hits me below the knees so it’s modest enough. If it was tight and short, it would’ve been a bit too much, at least for me!
Personally, I only like to “show off” one body part at a time. That sounds reallllly strange, but I promise it works. It also depends on the occasion, too! I was dressing for a wedding so I didn’t want to bare too much, but if I was hitting up NYC, I’d feel more comfortable wearing something a bit more risque.
