A Cowl Neckline is similar to the turtle neckline except that a Cowl-neck incorporates a greater amount of extra fabric, hanging in a scooping fashion, on the neck-line.
The neckline features folded fabrics that are wider and that drape looser than the close-fitting turtle-neck ones.
There is no fixed standard size for cowl necklines.It may be quite small and gather neatly right near your neck.
It may also feature lots of extra material that hang and cover considerable area of your chest.
The neckline is, like all others, a designer's creation moulded in the fashion they like. The neckline can be highly embellished or plain. The neck-line may feature details like knife-pleating, cinched decollete, pleated cuff, sequins, beads, crossed ribbons, etc.
It may be widely seen on sweaters, camisoles, casuals,wedding or evening gown's etc.
* For petite women, the neckline may give volume to your bust area and make you appear more curvaceous and sexy.
* Pear-shaped women with smaller busts and larger hips may appear in balance and proportion in this neck-line.
* Volumnous women with a fuller body may appear larger in this neck-line. So, they should avoid wearing the neckline.
