Find The Perfect Lehenga For Your Body Type With This Helpful Chart

Lehenga shopping is an exciting time for every bride. Choosing a bridal outfit that will compliment your body shape is crucial. Use this chart to see which is the best fit for you!

1. Rectangle Shaped

  • Your hips and bust are approximately at the same width
  • Fat is stored evenly throughout your body
  • You have little to no waist definition

Since a rectangle body shape has no curves, you’ll want your bridal lehenga to add some curve!

Choose a wide, full skirt in a stiff fabric like Raw Silk to add volume at the bottom. Pair with a blouse that is low and plunging to create the illusion of curves.

2. Pear Shaped

  • Your hips, thighs, and butt are your body’s centre stage
  • Your waist is defined but less prominent than your lower body
  • Your shoulder and bust width is narrow.

Balance your curves by wearing a blouse with detailing and volume. Take advantage of your defined waist by wearing low waist lehenga or draping bridal saree just below navel.

Don’t add much volume to your lehenga as it will make you appear frumpy. Avoid wearing tube tops or fishtail gowns which will highlight only your bottom.

3. Apple Shaped

You have an apple shape body if:

  • You carry weight around your mid-section and chest
  • Your rib cage and back appear wide
  • You have little to no waist definition

Empire-length styles with deep necklines will enhance your bridal look. Go for soft fabrics like chiffon or georgette to bring out the feminine side of you.

Longer length choli’s with a U or V cut from the hem will add balance to your attire. Avoid still fabrics like brocade or tissues as they give a very flat look to your body. Wear a bra that lifts your bust line as well.

4. Inverted Triangle Shape

  • Your shoulders are noticeably wider than you hip line
  • Your upper body is more noticeable than you lower body
  • You figure may project a sporty and athletic physique

Wear a lehenga with wide flair with a lot of detailing at the bottom. This will balance your body’s unique shape. Avoid choli’s with lot of embellishment as they will most likely give off a bulky-busted look.

5. Hourglass Shape

  • Your waist is defined
  • Your full hip-line and your full bust-line are the same width
  • Your curves are well proportioned 

Hourglass body shape is considered the most ideal shape because it has even proportions. Choosing a bridal lehenga for hourglass body shape is not difficult because you can wear many styles.

Full-ghera or fish-cut, short choli, net dupatta, heavy embroidery on all or any parts of the lehenga – you are probably the only body shape that can wear any and every combination in the books. The rest is up to you!
