While choosing a traditional Indian wedding lehenga, think a little smartly. Layers may be in fashion but you should  avoid  them. The reason being when you add on extra layering or capes, the clothes might engulf you.

If you want to appear leaner, you need to choose a lehenga with more kalis’. Depending upon your frame, choose your style. If you’ve broad shoulders, go for v-necked anarkalis or wear a tank or tube blouse. Wear your lehenga skirt just above your belly button to appear tall.

  1. High necks are a No

If you don’t have a lean neck, high necks can weigh you down. Instead of depending upon your shoulder frame, opt for tube, tank or modest traditional blouse style tops. Choose the perfect shade,and you can opt for backless or sleeveless to appear bigger.

  1. Get measured!

Now, while shopping your Indian wedding lehenga, it’s the best to choose a pattern that works well with your body type. Nobody looks bad; it’s all a matter of fittings. Hence, wear fitted lehengas that look good on your frame and body type.

In fact, you can go to the dressmaker in advance and pick out a style and pattern before moving to designs. However, if a dressmaker isn’t available, you can ask your friend or a member of your family to take your measurements, so that you can order online accordingly.

So, don’t let your height interfere with your big day. Buy the right lehenga and do a bold makeup to turn all heads. Indulge in your perfect big fat Indian Wedding in the States.
