For big size women to stand out from others, it is so important to look your best in every way. We are all aware of our imperfections and sometimes try to hide it with makeup or accessories, but the appropriate plus size fashion is the way to impress.  To decide on the most flattering neckline, you first need to determine your face shape and then we will discuss what type of neckline looks best.

Use the chart below to verify the shape of your face.

THERE ARE BASICALLY 6 FACE SHAPES – Stand in front of a mirror and compare your features to the pictures and descriptions below:

Oval – Your forehead is  a little wider than your chin. The length of your face is about 1 ½ times the width. 

Square – Your forehead and jaw line are the same width and the jaw as the most dazzling feature on your face.

Round – The width and length of your face are almost the same. Your cheeks are outstanding.

Heart – Your forehead and cheekbones are wider than your jaw line. You also have a great prominent chin.

Oblong – Similar to the oval shape, but longer and less wide. The chin is also a bit pointy.

Diamond – The cheekbones are your most exceptional feature and your forehead and jaw line are a bit narrow.

Matching Plus Size Clothing Necklines to face shapes

#1 This style is perfect for oblong and diamond faces – you should avoid the deep v neck as it elongates the face. However, many big size women love the v neck. You can use a necklace to make your face appear shorter when wearing a v neck. 

#2 A square or heart shaped face should avoid all square necklines because it mirrors the shape of your face. The round neckline is the best because it does soften the edges of your face.

#3 Women with oval faces are lucky because your face is very balanced and looks good with any neckline. You should wear different necklines depending on your own preferences. However, if your face is on the bigger side, you should try to wear necklines that are deeper.

#4 Round face – A V neckline will minimize the roundness of your face. A deep V neck is the best choice for you as it makes your face look longer and slimmer. Any type of V neck is a solid choice for round faces in plus size fashions.

Stephen, Your Designer

“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
