What Kind of Kurtis suit to different body type

As I have earlier discussed the various basic body shapes women have, let us discuss what suit to their body type, in terms of ethnic wear i.e Kurtis


  1. Apple body shape-

Select V-neck pattern  kurti
Belt pattern kurtis
Don’t opt for anything which is tighter at waist, as your  waist/lower region being the problem area, try and opt for flowy outfits, which has the flow only at the bottom, but not exactly  from waist

Choose short kurtis with leggings which draw attention to your slim leg. Also prefer churidars over shalwars.
Mix & match  trendy stole or a dupatta take it  around your neck and shoulders, than just taking it one side shoulder to draw attention away from your torso.

Go for A line kurtas that has gathers and pleats.

Apple Body Shape Women Avoid: 
Avoid Mandarin collar pattern kurti
Avoid Yoke pattern kurti
Avoid patialas bottoms


2)  Pear  body Shaped women-


  • Light color Kurti with dark color Patialas or shalwars to streamline lower body
  • Flare Style Kurti & Anarkali Kurti which has flare from waist below
  • Kurti with collar pattern, boatneck and Square neck style.
  • Printed and textures (stripes, polkadots, sequins) Kurti
  • Bishop and rouched sleeves
  • Prefer longer kurti as they add length to your body

What to avoid

  • Body-hugging fabrics.
  • Tight bottoms that highlight your lower half

3)  Hourglass Body Shaped women
