I have become very aware of the fact that my neck is long, especially since cutting my hair short. I can remember once wanting to cut my hair short, and my hair dresser at the time saying: "But not too short, I mean, you don't want to look like a giraffe".
There are a couple of shirts that make me feel like, maybe, a goose, and they all seem to have one characteristic in common. They have scoop necks. While they are apparently not as lengthening as a V-neck, I find they accentuate what I feel to be somewhat of a problem.I think it's the width of the scoop that I find contrasts too much with the thinness of my neck.
I had one shirt that I love but the neck. I didn't wear it as much as I had hoped because I hated the neck. And then one day... I grabbed a safety pin. Win!
