The Magic Formula for Looking Slim in Any Turtleneck

Meghan Blalock

Listen, we get it: Turtlenecks are kinda scary. For ladies (like yours truly!) who happen to be of a certain build—with larger breasts, broader shoulders, and generally ampler curves—the sweaters are oft found on every "do not wear" list from here to yonder. And for (what seems like) good reason: The chunky, high-neck knits don't seem universally flattering.

But we've done our research and come up with some ways you can look slim in just about every kind of turtleneck, from a formfitting knit to a chunkier one. The formula is pretty simple, really, when you think about it: Keep everything lifted, smooth, and away from the already burdened neck area. And voilà! Your best turtleneck look yet.
