If you want to look slimmer in wedding wear, then saris and lehengas with longer lengths work better than those with shorter ones. This is because a longer hem - till the floor - doesn’t visually cut your body in half and make you look bigger than you are. So avoid wearing outfits where the hemline hits your ankle or above. Go for longer anarkalis and lehengas which sweep the floor.

In case your planned wedding outfit is printed, the thumb rule is this: the smaller the print, the slimmer you will look. Bigger or stretched prints will make it feel like there is a lot going on in your look, and as a result, you will look smaller and heavier. So choose smaller, subtler prints to show off your figure!

7. Wear an outfit with a vertical pattern
