Lehengas have dominated the choice of Indians for a long time now. It is the culture which is mostly the reason behind Indian women preferring the lehenga cholis. However, these ethnic Indian wears have grown in popularity amongst people in the west too. Lehengas can be safely called the Indian ethnic counterpart to the wedding gowns that are worn in the western culture. Indian weddings are extravagant to say the least.

India is a country where we like to spend only on two things, ‘food’ and ‘weddings’. The big fat Indian wedding is the occasion where every girl wants to dress up traditionally and look ethnic and Indian. Getting all dressed up with right jewellery and make up is the dream.

Fish cut lehengas or mermaid style lehengas are fitted till the knee and then flares out at the bottom. There is a small trail at the back which adds to the glamour at times and looks great. These days, especially with lean and straight body type becoming the new trend, fish cut lehenga is gaining popularity. It is super trendy and stylish.
Since, a fancy designer lehenga can cost quite a good amount; one must be very sure of which style is going to compliment their body type. It does not matter how beautiful a Lehenga is, if it’s not right for the body type, it will fall flat. So it is necessary to know one’s body type and which Lehenga is best suited for each.

- A full flared lehenga will best compliment an apple shaped body. The wide bottom will make you look slimmer and most importantly it will make you look elegant.
- Never opt for heavy embroidery around the waist region. It’s is a strict no.
- A long choli with the latest lehenga is a good option. However you should ensure the choli ends slightly beneath the point where the lehenga begins.
