Borrowing from French bateau
Onward, Charon, ill-humoredly you pole my wooden bateau, let us float on the tide, westward to Texas sands.
A bateau neckline is a great choice to accentuate the collarbone, or many brides choose off-the-shoulder or keyhole designs for a bit of flair.
Another popular dress is the A-line Bateau Floor-Length Satin Organza Flower Girl Dress.
Bateau is a neckline that rests in a straight line that meets at the shoulders, measuring equally on the front and the back.
Choose summer dresses with bateau, princess or sweetheart, square or V-necklines to show off collarbones and add symmetry.
