Choosing the wedding lehenga is not only about the colour, design, pattern and how many kalis you want. You also have to choose the most flattering blouse for your body shape! Do you want to show off your assets or camouflage some features? Take some inspiration from these blouse styles for every body type.
1. Scoop it!
This is a universally flattering blouse design. The scoop neck brings the focus to the collarbones, and the long sleeves slim the upper arms. Plus, it accommodates every bust size!
2. Rock it old school
A voluminous lehenga can make you look unbalanced on top if you have very narrow shoulders. A monochrome blouse with a high neck, sleeves till the elbows and a very high neck will balance out the volume at the bottom.
This classic neckline shape creates an instant cleavage!
4. Long and lean
If you are a pear shape, or are looking for a modest blouse style, this is it! The blouse style creates a long line for the eye, smoothing any bumps in the way, making you appear taller and leaner.
5. Go retro!
This was an extremely popular style in the 90s. Yes, we’re talking about three-quarter sleeves and a high neck. A monochrome, dark-coloured blouse is instantly slimming.
6. Show off!
Worked your butt off for toned arms and a ripped stomach? Show it off girl in this super cute blouse!
7. Plunge the gap!
Since the lehenga is so heavy, why not opt for a plunging neckline, especially when there is no danger of spilling out. This’ll work especially with a lehenga which has a lean silhouette.
8. Armed with glitter!
We love this variation on the classic lehenga blouse design! The shimmery lower arms, the V-neck and cutout in the front take it from so-so to va-va-voom! If you’re pear shaped, or afraid of unsightly tummy bulges, pair this blouse with a high-waisted lehenga and you’re sorted!
