Your wedding day, the day you had been imagining all your life, is nearing and increasing your nervousness. This single day creates history and you wish it to be the best day of your life. The real difficult part is to choose the ideal wedding dress that suits your body shape and skin tone. Colours also play an important role while choosing a lehenga as there are a wide range of colours available today. Shades like deep pink, peach, sky blue, sea green etc. are best suitable for fairer skin. Maroon, red, purple compliments whitish skin brides. So here we are to help you choose that ideal bridal wear that is fashionable as well as traditional.
Pear: If you are a heavy bottom beauty; less on upper body with a well-defined waist line then you have a pear shape body. Balance your curves by wearing blouses that has both detailing and volume. Take advantage of your slim 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 out of shape. Avoid wearing tube tops or fishtail gowns which will highlight only your bottom.
Apple: If you are an apple in someone’s eye then you are full on top and bottom with less defined waist line. Empire length styles with deep /low necklines will enhance your look. Go for soft fabrics like chiffon, georgette or crepe which will help to bring out the feminine side of you. Longer length choli’s with a U or V cut from the hem will give a balance to your attire. Avoid still fabrics like brocade or tissues as they give a very flat look to your body. Make sure you wear bras that lift your bust line.
Hourglass: Defined waist line with curvy upper and lower body are the key features of hourglass shape. Choosing the ideal wedding dress that suits your body shape, hourglass, is not that difficult. Fishtail bridal lehenga/gown or saree drape are the perfect style for an hourglass figure. Halter neckline or corsets will enhance the overall look.
Inverted Triangle: A cone shaped body is completely opposite of pear shape. Women with inverted triangle shape are heavier from top and lighter from bottom. As they have broad shoulders they should wear lehenga with wide flair with a lot of detailing at the bottom. This will balance the body shape. Avoid highlighting choli’s with lot of embellishment which will give a bulky bust look.
Petite: You are lucky to experiment with wide range of varieties. Feel like queen by adding a lot of flounce in your lehenga or go for a red carpet model look by going for the slim fit. Vertical stripes will add length to your look. Avoid heavy duppattas whereas A-line lehenga with U or halter neckline choli will look elegant.
