Bridal Lehenga Tips for Different Body Shapes

Every bride desires a stunning lehenga which makes her look sassy on her special day but this task is just so confusing. VenueMonk brings you a few tips for bridal lehengas according to body shapes. Have a look:


First of all, you should know your body shape. There are three main categories in which body shapes have been classified:

  • The Apple Shape or the top heavy shape
  • The Pear shape or the bottom heavy shape
  • The Hourglass shape or the toned waist area shape 


1. Brides with Apple shape:

Since the apple shape is the top heavy shape so outfits must be chosen so as to draw attention away from the upper body. A contrasting colour lehnga with ample pleats and thin waist line would suit the best to such body shape. Jewellery should include heavy kamarbandhs and neck lines usually V shape or U shape. Never go sleeveless.


2. Brides with Pear shape:

For this shape, a contrasting colour straight fall lehenga or an ‘A-cut’ lehenga must be worn as the main idea is to draw attention on the torso and upper body. Wide sleeves should be preferred and jewellery should include heavy Choker or Mughlai style necklaces. Go for neck-lines that widen your shoulders visually, such as Scoop-necks, Sweetheart necks, Boat-neck or strapless necks. You can also opt for designer shrugs matching your lehnga.


3. Brides with Hourglass shape:


This is the most ideal shape and some women are blessed with such shape. Go for solid colour lehngas avoiding sharp contrasting colours with voluminous pleats and vertical embroidery so as to even out the shape of the hip and thighs. The V-halter necks and U-shape necks would go well in case of neckline.


Now that you are aware of your body shape and the type of lehnga, choose accordingly. Don’t get confused of venues and select the best venue for your wedding only with VenueMonk.
