Are you a curvy girl who is soon going to be a beautiful bride? We can understand the dilemma you might be dealing with to opt for the perfect plus size lehenga for your big day. Choosing your bridal ensemble is a bit more difficult as you need attire that flatters your curves as well as denotes your essence. Your bridal outfit can either make or break your look on your wedding day. Here are a few great ideas you should keep in mind, while your bridal lehenga shopping. After all, it is important to make the most of those curves without being ashamed of them.
All Hail To Deep-Necklines
If you have an apple-shaped body (top-heavy) then you should go with deep necklines. No matter what others have told you, you should flaunt it. Go as deep as you want with the neckline but remember to go for options like V-neck or a scoop round neck with full sleeves which will flatter your upper body like a goddess and make your busts look less heavy. Try avoiding high-neck designs for your blouse as it will make you look more stuffy.
Monotone Lehenga FTW!
Wearing a single tone will make you look slim and tall. You can also wear a combination of two similar shades such as red and pink. The magical effect of monotone will flatter your curves effortlessly. As the colour of your lehenga is chic and elegant, go for prints that complement the subtleness of your plus size lehenga choli. Choose darker hues like violet, mauve, magenta and steel grey than light colours to look classic and slim.
Smaller Motifs And Vertical Designs
Do not pick a lehenga with big motifs or designs it will make you look broader. Go for small dainty motifs that will make you look more subtle. Avoid large patchwork and prints and opt for vertical patterns instead. Horizontal lines would make you look heavier. You can also opt plus size lehenga with thin borders and heavy jewellery that will accentuate your curves.
Lehengas With Peplum Blouse Or Longer Kurta Style Blouse
Peplum blouses hug you in the right places and make you look flattering. This blouse design goes well with all body types. Girls with top-heavy or apple-shaped, bottom-heavy or pear-shaped and hourglass body type can enhance their bridal look by opting for a peplum blouse. They should be paired with A-line or flared skirts. If you want to cover your curves then you should choose a longer kurta style blouse, that looks amazing and covers the tummy too. Gharara or Sharara are outfits that work for all body types.
Lehengas In Flattering Fabrics
Smooth and free-flowing fabrics like chiffon, georgette, soft silk, net and crepe are ideal choices for your plus size lehenga. They will make you look less heavy as they will hug your body right and not too much. Also, they are so comfortable and easy to carry. Try avoiding raw silk and cotton as they will add volume to your ensemble and will make you look bulky.
Lehengas With The Saree Drape
How you styled your dupatta plays an important role in your bridal ensemble. Dupatta draping can do wonders and elevate your bridal look. Flair your dupatta like a saree drape this will hug your body in the right places and will cover your tummy. Plus-size brides are digging this saree-cum-lehenga design and slaying it like a pro. Finish off your look with traditional kundan or polki jewellery.
Everybody loves high-waisted jeans, then why not a high-waisted lehenga? High-waisted lehenga looks amazing on both curvy and flat brides. It looks much better when plus-size brides accentuate it on the right place of the waist. Go for high waist lehenga and longer blouses to get a slimmer look.
Lehenga With Waist Belt
Accentuate that waist by adorning a luxurious waist belt. A waist belt brings structure to our whole look. Try to match your waist belt with your jewellery. For a modern touch, you can opt leather belts, like the ones shown in Sabyasachi’s magnificent collection. Curvy brides would look astonishing as they flatter their curves with a waist belt.
