Wouldn't you want to own a Manish Malhotra lehenga for your sangeet and a Sabyasachi for your wedding? Who wouldn't! Before you pick out your favorite designer lehenga for your wedding, it is absolutely necessary that you know your body type, or shape. Let us remember that we all have our flaws, and accordingly, the ways to camouflage the same. Thus, knowing what looks best on us (and what does not), the wedding lehenga needs to be selected. And lo! You will definitely look like a million-dollar bride.
Hourglass: A woman with an hourglass figure is someone who is busty with a defined waist, curvy hips and shapely legs. Though her bone structure is small, she might be heavy on the buttocks. A fishtail or a mermaid-style lehenga would compliment this figure like no other. It is fitted till the knee and then flares out till the bottom, accentuating the hips beautifully. Pair it with a halter-neck choli or a corset for the perfect look.
Petite: A petite woman is someone with a tiny frame. Dressing up for a petite-shaped woman can be easy yet quite a task at the same time. Always choose a lehenga that is not too elaborate as it might not look best on you. An A-line lehenga looks best on a tiny-framed body. Also, you can opt for an off-shoulder short choli. Most importantly, the embroidery and all other details like sequins and beads should be dainty just like your body type.
Ruler-shaped/Straight: A ruler-shaped woman is someone who has an upper and lower torso that is equal in width with an average bust, an undefined waist, a flat buttock and slender legs. A straight cut lehenga that resembles a wrap-around skirt is advisable for straight-figured women. Even a panel-styled lehenga is flattering, providing the right amount of flare. Choose a choli with a neckline that falls below the collarbone so as to give your upper torso an elongated look.
