If you are a bit healthy and thus feeling tensed then just relax as here I am suggesting you some lehenga shopping tips for curvy brides. Follow these tips and get the best bridal lehenga for your special day.

Say No to Short Sleeves

The curvy brides also have bit of fat on the arms and short sleeves will expose your not so toned arms and make you look fat. So, avoid buying cape sleeves, sleeveless or short sleeves choli with your lehenga. You can go with 3/4th sleeves, elbow length sleeves or full sleeves and also make sure that there is not too heavy embroidery or work done on the sleeves part as it will only make you arms look heavier.


Perfect Fit

Make sure that you choose a plus size lehenga choli that is well fitted and even if it is not then you can customize it as per your fitting. The lehenga fitting should not be too tight that you can’t even breathe properly or move your hands freely and at the same time it should also not be too loose as it will only make you look plump.  A perfect fitted outfit always compliments your personality.


Monotone Lehenga

If you have some excess weight then the best way to hide it is wear a monotone wedding lehenga. If you pick up a different color choli and a different color plus size lehenga then you will look short and ultimately you will end up looking plumper. So, in order to avoid looking short, choose a single color lehenga and choli which will give an illusion of added height and ultimately make you look a bit thinner.


Go for Corset Choli

It’s not a crime if you have a curvy body, you can anyways hide the bulky areas very cleverly. Rather than opting for a short or a crop top choli what you need to do is go for a corset choli design. Have you seen Divyanka Tripathi wedding lehenga?? She herself confessed that she doesn’t have a great waist to flaunt and that’s why she picked up a corset choli design for her bridal lehenga and everyone know how great it looked on her. So, you know being curvy is not a problem, it’s just that you should know how to play smart with the fashion and style.


Pick a High Waisted Lehenga

If the area around the tummy bothers you too much then go for a high waisted lehenga with a sleek kamarbandh around. With this style you can also pick up a crop top blouse as the lehenga is already high waisted, hence even the crop top wont expose must of your area around rib cage. So, you are on a safer side anyways.


Choose Light Fabric

Even if you love Banarasi, Kanjeevaram or Raw Silk, you have to strictly avoid your bridal lehenga in these fabrics. Reason being all these fabrics are heavy and will only add excess bulk to your body. Choose fabrics that are light weighted like georgette, crepe or soft silk which makes your body look toned.


Go for Small Prints

If you are picking up a lehenga with motifs work or printed work then make sure that there are small motifs placed evenly all over the lehenga. Avoid lehengas with broader motifs or prints.


Drape Dupatta in Saree Style

Yes, by draping the dupatta in saree style you can easily cover all your tummy bulge very smartly. You can go for double dupatta wherein the first dupatta you can drape in saree style and other you can put over your head. So, make sure that when you go out for your lehenga shopping, you buy two dupattas.


Some other tips

  • If you are fat then avoid wearing choker necklace on your wedding day as it will cover your entire neck making you look short and then ultimately plumper.
  • Avoid wearing high neck cholis as they will only add high volume and will make you look fat.
  • Ask your make up artist to properly contour your face.
  • Prefer wearing dark colors like Red, Purple, Dark Blue, Rani Pink etc, dark color makes you look slim.

So, if you are heading for buying lehenga and you are confused what to choose because of your healthy body type then follow the above lehenga shopping tips. And yes, don’t forget to rock your wedding with immense confidence regardless of your body type and one big never ending smile on your face.
