When you have embroidery or a pattern on the blouse that flows vertically in a straight line around your frame, it will make it look slimmer, giving it an illusion of a narrower frame. Go for a blouse that’ll enhance your curves and make them look oh-so-hot!

For all those sexy blouses and to give your blouses a really good fit. If you’re a curvy bride-to-be, it can be hard finding that perfect strapless blouse. But do invest in a good quality bra as it’s going to come in pretty handy! You can thank us later, ladies!

An anarkali suit is that piece of Indian wear which looks absolutely gorgeous if you have a curvy figure. Cinched at the waist with lots of volume and flare at the bottom, you really need that one anarkali suit that is beautiful, not very OTT but festive enough to make you want to twirl.

A-line kurtas are really a great silhouette to wear and style. They give your curves better definition, as they fit right at the top and are relaxed at the bottom, making your curves look sexier.

A trousseau is incomplete without a saree. If you’re a curvy bride-to-be, steer clear of sarees that have too many prints and patterns on them. Go for a lightweight saree that’s easy to style, preferably a silk or a georgette one that will work well for those post-shaadi events.
POPxo Recommends: Varkala Silk Pink Tussar Silk Saree (Rs 2,600) Add it to your wishlist
An ethnic skirt is a great piece to add to your trousseau - it’s comfy, it’s vibrant and it’s traditional. Wear it with one of your saree blouses or just with a top and add a heavy dupatta to dress it up a bit. An ethnic skirt is a great in-between outfit that will break the monotony of traditional Indian wear without being too outrageous an outfit to experiment with. If you’re a curvy bride-to-be, it’ll really enhance your figure and be a new style to try!

Layering as a trend sounds too much when you’re curvy… but trust us, it works wonders in making your figure look hotter than it already is. Try wearing a suit that’s layered with an ethnic jacket or has a waistcoat to go along. This really helps pull up your overall look!

Every bride needs to have that one pair of heels that she can wear without killing her feet. We all know the heels have the power to make you look taller and slender. Opt for wedge heels that are comfortable, easy to wear and are in a neutral colour that will match most of your wedding outfits. A golden, nude or beige is the colour scheme you should opt for as it suits most skin tones and complements most colours as well.
