So I don't look like a wrestler? Generally wear a v-neck but as I have zero chest, I find that V-necks tend to go really low which flash too much flesh (though not clevege). Links to actual tops or celebs wearing particular styles would be great as rubbish at imaging / visualising based on descriptions. Thank you in advance!
I am the same as you OP - broad shoulders with quite prominent collar bones and very small breasts. Think my chest is a bit boney too.
I don't like halter necks as think they make my shoulders look even bigger because of the angle of the cut of the top (the bit from neck to armpit). Boat necks can also make my shoulders look bigger I think because they draw the eye across...
It's hard! I do wear v necks but often with a vest top underneath (so the round bit of the best shows in the V).
I do wear strapless on special occasions but nothing super tight and either wear with a nice necklace or big earrings
Boat, crew or slash neck. I am a similar shape. I can't wear cowls (I look hollow), v neck or scoop neck for the reasons you give, and I look like a chilld in polo neck tops.
I have a new top with a slash neck that I love. I can't link, but if you search on m and s petite, it is 22.50 I think and it is navy and cream horizontal stripe. They do it in red and cream too. It comes up on the big side.
The chunky roll neck slims the shoulders down due to it's width and draws the eye up from the norks. I am having a Jaeger obsession at the moment so excuse the link but this is similar to the Boden off duty jumper which is of the same design and would also work.
