Welcome to the
Dare to Wear a Plunging Neck Swimsuit
Plunging neck, (very) low-cut, deep-V neckline – whatever you call it, there’s a lot to consider if you are going to try wearing one of these swimsuits for the first time.
To begin with, since the opening of this style of neckline extends below the bottom of the breasts, and sometimes to or below the navel, a plunging neckline is almost always sported on a one-piece swimsuit. Although you might also find this on a tankini top, you would have to forego the usual breast support of the normal tankini.
Obviously, then, you would need to be comfortable with several aspects of a very low-cut one-piece. You will have to feel that a one-piece looks good on you and that it is comfortable to wear. Also you must be confident enough to reveal your cleavage area for the public to see (and admire?).
Full Plunging Neck opening
There are styles where the split opens fully to show lots of skin, including the inner sides of your breasts; usually small breasted women can sport this type well. Adding ruffles is one way to make the effect really appealing.
But there are other options. If more modesty is desired, you can find this style with ladder openings or lace-up openings. Other variations include having a string or strip of fabric holding the V spacing to a defined width.
Sexy looking possibilities, that would look great on those of you with larger breasts, include mesh coverage of the opening, zippered V necklines that allow you to adjust the width and depth of the V, and straps that go around the inner curve of the breasts.
Backs to know about
Although many of the plunging neck suits also have low-cut backs, there are also types with tie or snap closures across the back to hold the bodice portion of the swimsuit in place. Some of these also have cut-outs on the sides or multiple straps across the sides. Finally, often with the zippered V’s, you can find full back coverage as well.
In essence, you have to want to rock a very low-cut swimsuit and, then, feel comfortable in it in order to wear it well. With all the options and styles available, it might be worth your while to give such a choice some space in your travel case. Why not give one of these a try?
