Straight Cut Lehenga
One of the most preferred bridal lehengas, this one flatters numerous body types and goes well. Resembling a wrap around skirt, this lehenga falls straight from the waist to the hemline with slits on sides. It looks best paired with a choli which falls beneath the collarbone for giving a long and enhanced look to the body.
This one definitely accentuates those curves – the lehenga fits snugly till the knees and it flares out gracefully. This lehenga suits women who have an hourglass figure or a straight body. It can be worn in combination with a gorgeous corset or a daring halter-neck style choli.
This lehenga is complete with its beautiful broad flare and great volume. Starting with numerous pleats near the waist, this lehenga should be selected in smooth, long and silky flowing fabrics. This lehenga looks good on women with cone-shaded bodies. It should be worn with a choli which is elegant and subtle in its design and fabric.
The cut of this skirt stands for alphabet A which starts from the waist till the hem. This suits women with pear shaped bodies and has a minimalistic flare. It can be paired with lovely cholis and blouses with puffy sleeves which are designed to accentuate the upper part of the body.
Panel Length Lehenga
This lehenga creates a required amount of flare and offers a slimming effect. It is made of numerous panels stitched together which are similar fabrics or different kinds of fabrics. This lehenga looks even better with a long choli which hides any extra flab and creates the perfect slim silhouette.
Hope this helped you decide on what kind of lehenga will compliment and flatter your body on the most important day of your life.
