Planning to go shopping for Diwali? How about buying a fish cut lehenga instead of a saree or a regular lehenga? True to its name, a fish cut lehenga has a distinctive fishtail shape to it, with the ends flaring out like fins. It is very flattering for all body types, giving an illusion of a taller and leaner frame.
When you wear a fish cut lehenga, it gives you a beautiful silhouette, almost mermaid-like in shape. It accentuates the curves of your hips, makes your legs look long and flares out at the end to create a visual treat of the perfect feminine posture. It is no wonder then that fish cut lehengas are quite crazy amongst young girls and women alike.
So what should you look out for when buying a fish cut lehenga choli?
While the flare at the ends is what gives the fish cut lehenga a unique look in latest lehenga designs, make sure the flare is the right amount to flatter your figure. If you are short and a little heavy on the hips, then too much flare will just make you look even more short and stout. The flare should start at your knees, anywhere higher than that is just a recipe for disaster.
Make sure the lehenga fits you perfectly. If it is loose in places, get an experienced tailor to alter it to fit you like second skin. There is nothing quite as unappealing as an ill-fitting fish cut lehenga. If your lehenga is loose, it will make you look flabby and out of shape, and that is a nightmare no woman should go through. So always nick and tuck your lehenga to make it accentuate your curves.
Another important factor that many people overlook is the material. The lehengas material also affects how well it drapes over your body and how flattering it looks. Heavily worked lehengas need to be handled with care and they may slack with the weight. So make sure they are well-stitched and the cloth used can handle the weight of the stones and chumkis that are used. Avoid satin lehengas as satin tends to lose its shape after a while and also frays easily.
Check if the lehenga has been stitched with care. If it’s a heavy worked lehenga, check to see if there is an inner lining of cloth to protect the thread work from getting damaged. The problem with lehengas that are cheap is that they more often than not do not have details such as a second stitching to keep the stitches from fraying, carefully done stitches that are not too visible and jarring, and good quality thread and embellishments used to make sure the designs last for many years. So the quality of the lehenga is very important, and more so for a fish cut lehenga as it is very crucial for the lehenga to be impeccable to achieve the desired effect.
