Whatever necklace length you pick, it should complement not only your outfit, but physique as well. Depending on this parameter, there are certain body features such as your height, body type, and neck size, etc., you must consider to select the correct necklace chain length.
This factor is important to notice while purchasing choker necklaces for girls. All you need is a measuring tape and wrap it gently around your neck to determine its size. Now, add two inches to the measurement you get and that will be a comfortable necklace length for chokers – these necklaces work the best for women with long necks.
Height greatly flatters your body type and while selecting the perfect necklace chain you should not overlook this factor. 16-20” necklace lengths look best on women between 5”– 5’4” height because long chain necklaces tend to overwhelm females with short height. Taller women with heights more than 5’4” can wear any length. Long chained necklaces accentuate the tall frame and therefore, looks the best on taller women.
Your body type is another factor that will grab people’s attention to where your necklace ends. So, it all depends on you what length you choose. For instance, too slim women will look great with long and thin or layered chain necklaces. The kind of necklace chain that falls below the bustline will not hang properly on a full-figured woman, so they must stay away from it. Instead, try an 18-20” inch chain length that will sit slightly higher on such body type.
Your face shape is an important factor to decide which chain length will actually help accentuate your facial features. For instance, choker isn’t a good choice for a woman with a round face because it will highlight the facial roundness and she may look fat. Chokers or any short chain necklace looks amazing on heart shaped faces. Women with oval faces can wear any length, shape and type of chain necklace.
The standard chain lengths don’t include the pendant size; therefore, you should consider an additional 1-2 inches for the pendant hanging from the chain you choose. We include pendant size in our descriptions to help determine how the piece will sit on your body.
