We all know that halter top dresses are one of the most flattering styles you can wear, so why is it that we so often run shy of them?
Take this exquisite dress by Dessy Collection 2937; the draped halter neckline is the utmost in modest elegance yet the cut-away design exposes the shoulders in a most beguiling way.
Lack of support in the bust area to this day remains the number one reason why we are tentative about wearing a halter neck, particularly if we're well-endowed. But nowadays there are plenty of ways to assuage your worries about such matters. For example, this beautiful Exquis Lace Underwired Halter neck Bra from the renowned La Redoute is cleverly designed to be low at the back, narrow at the front, pretty and yet fully supportive.
New Look also have a good selection of halter neck bras which are very reasonable whilst Marks and Spencer have a large collection of strapless and multiway bras, including strapless bandeaus.
My other favourite halter top bridesmaid dresses from Dessy are shown below, including the Alfred Sung D678 which is actually a modified halter neck.
I think you'll agree that they all look so effortlessly beautiful, so go on, be brave and give it a go.
