Avoid large patterns and large borders and choose medium sized butties and designs. The embroidery should have vertical pattern rather horizontal designs.

Cut of the lehenga: There are different cuts available in the market such as fish cut and standard cut (skirt types). You can go for traditional styles to contemporary ones.

Highlight the best body part: If you have beautiful upper body, then highlight it by wearing dark colour blouse with good design and embellishments. If you have beautiful bottom part or long legs, then wear an A-cut skirt which will make you look taller and slimmer.

Light weighted fabric also works wonder as they are comfortable and easy to carry as well.
