There is a way to dress it up intelligently. By knowing this, you can highlight your best features and shift focus away from the areas you do not want to highlight. Know the following guidelines before going for that perfect lehenga you want.


Girls with a rectangle-shaped body are typically defined as having little to no waist definition. Their hips and bust are approximately at the same width. Fat is stored evenly throughout the body. Choose a wide, full skirt in a stiff, fabric-like Raw Silk to add volume at the bottom. Pair with a blouse that is low and plunging to create the illusion of curves.

While looking for the lehenga, empire length styles with deep necklines that will enhance your bridal look if you are a to-be bride. Go for soft fabrics like chiffon or georgette to bring out the feminine side of you. Longer length cholis with a U or V cut from the hem will add balance to your attire. Avoid still fabrics like brocade or tissues as they give a very flat look to your body. Wear a bra that lifts your bust as well.
