Choose Lehnga According to Body Shape

Every person has a different body type and brides should take special care while choosing their lehngas, as every style and silhouette might not be for them. Here we have discussed few common body shapes and the styles which suit them the most. Brides can keep these things in mind while choosing lehngas for them….

Hour Glass Shape– Choose a A line lehnga which has a nice flare and remember to use fluid and flowy fabrics. Since you have a figure with slim waistline, go in for short blouses, they will help you look slimmer.


Rectangle Shape Body– If you have a pear shape having  heavy top, or you are rectangle body shape, then do not go in for short blouses, as it will highlight the upper part of your body. Instead choose a long jacket style cut. Not only will it cover the body shape by distracting the attention from heavy parts, but will also make you look taller. Prefer stiff fabrics like brocade, chanderi jaal patterns which will not cling to body. Also go for lehngas with more ghera, this will provide volume and shape to the body. This is the only body type which also has the option to choose from fish-cut lehngas. As this body type hardly has any body contours, fish-cut provides a nice flare at the bottom of the silhouette.


Apple shape body type– People with such body type should avoid wearing short choli, as it will attract all the attention towards the upper part of the body which is heavy. Also avoid fitted yoke styles. Prefer a hip length top flowy lehnga with nice ghera. Do not wear fish cut or lehngas with less ghera.
