Happy brides are the prettiest, and it doesn’t matter whether you are curvy, tall, short or skinny. Let’s just make that clear first! Now, coming to the styling part - every body type is different, and needs to be styled differently. Slim brides need to dress up in flowy fabrics which can add an illusion of volume to their look. Similarly, curvy brides need focus on certain other aspects while getting ready for their big day. Here are some tips!
If your belly is the problem area, then you should pick a high-waisted lehenga. You should tie it above your navel, or camouflage the visible belly with a belt. Also, make sure that your choli ends just an inch above your lehenga. It will hide any bulges that you may be conscious about.
Not too confident about your arms? Opt for three-quartered sleeves in a semi sheer fabric like net or georgette. This will give the illusion of slimmer arms and look super elegant too. Most designers swear by three-quartered sleeves for all the elegance and royalty that they add to the look.
Totally love this gorgeous lehenga? If you do, then you will also love this stunning design by Anju Modi which is available on Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop for Rs 250,000.
Fabrics like cotton, raw silk and velvet tend to be stiff and add volume to your body. You should pick flowy fabrics like georgette and net that give you an A-Line silhouette without adding too much volume. The fabric of your lehenga should be such that can be easily draped and flows effortlessly.
We found a perfect net wedding lehenga for you on Kalki Fashions. Get it here for Rs 97,140.
Large motifs or prints add a lot of unnecessary bulk to the body. They tend to make people focus more on your problem areas. Smaller prints or motifs that are evenly scattered around your outfit are a more appropriate choice.
High necklines tend to cut height and add volume to your upper body. To avoid that, ensure that your blouse has a wide and low neckline, which should be paired with a single neckpiece, delicately placed on your neck. Deep necklines add length and give the illusion of a longer neck. Avoid wearing a choker too!
We know what neckpiece will look lovely with such blouses. This super pretty red hued kundan necklace, available on Amazon for Rs 549 ONLY!
Pick one colour for your entire outfit, and if you want to create a contrasting look, then just go with two shades of the same colour. Doing this will give you an even look from top to bottom, thus creating the illusion of a slimmer waist and taller frame.
We found a gorgeous montone maroon lehenga on Jabong for Rs 8,370. You will totes love it!
Draping you dupatta in a certain way can easily take away a few kilos from your look. Just tuck in your dupatta on one side of your waist, and drape it neatly around your waist and over your shoulder, like a saree. This is a great way to hide your tummy (if you want to!). You can opt for another dupatta on your head to complete your bridal look.
It’s your wedding, you want to look great but still be comfy. These pretty glittery wedges that we spotted on Jabong for Rs 1,200 are just right for the bride!
