As Indian women, we love our kurtas, don’t we? We wear them to office, to parties and even to dates. So what’s the one thing to keep in mind while buying a kurta? It’s not the kurta design for ladies, but your body type! Know your body shape and how to accentuate it best can make this feminine garment look even more graceful so read on to find the kurtas that’ll make you feel the best in who you are!
If your shoulders are slightly wider than your hips and there’s a lesser curve around the waist, you’re the well-proportioned apple body shape.
Stop Printed V-Neck A-Line Kurta
The Stop A-Line Kurta is the latest kurti for women and perfect for the apple shape because the V-neck accentuates the length of your neck and the flared shape draws away attention from the midriff, lending you a curvier and a more hour-glass like figure.
Kashish Embroidered Mandarin Neck A-Line Kurta
The Kashish Mandarin Neck Kurta has a gorgeous dark ombre colour with an A-line flare that makes the lower half of your body look slimmer while elongating it.
If your bust and hips are roughly even and full with a well-defined waist, you’d be described as the curly hourglass shape.
Biba Printed Round Neck Straight Women’s Kurta
Curves are your strength and the Biba Printed Kurta has an empire line fit that’ll accentuate the shape of your waist. The layered kurta does a great job of hugging you in all the right places.
Aurelia Slub Round Neck Kurta
The Aurelia Slub Kurta is as gorgeous as it gets with a scoop neck that’ll accentuate your collarbones and an empire line fit that tucks in the waist and flows out beautifully.
Like an inverted triangle, this body shape features a larger bust, narrow hips and a square shoulder line.
Global Desi Self-Design V-Neck Straight Kurta
The trick with the inverted triangle is to draw the attention towards the top half while avoiding clothes that cling to your hips. That’s exactly what the Global Desi Self-Design Kurta is perfect for, with a deep V-neck, buttons, and handy pockets! We’d say, style this kurta with jeans for a casual chic look.
Stop Printed V-Neck Anarkali Kurta
The Stop Anarkali Kurta is perfect for the inverted triangle because the flared silhouettes will flow over the hips rather than clinging and the fitted top half will elevate your curves!
If you are on the shorter side with a narrow body frame, you’re a petite body shape with small features.
Kashish Embroidered Round Neck Flared Kurta
A full-length kurta like the Kashish Embroidered Kurta can make your body appear taller. The boat neck will also elongate your neck, adding to the illusion of height.
Global Desi Floral V-Neck Kurta
An ankle-length kurta like the Global Desi Floral Kurta can make you look taller while playing up your narrow features. The single solid colour and thin border at the bottom both help in making the torso and legs look long and even.
The full-figured woman has a voluptuous and overall rounded figure will full hips and a wide bust.
Aurelia Round Neck Stripe Kaftan Kurta with Inner Lining
The Aurelia Kaftan Kurta is our favourite type of kurta silhouette for full-figured women as it drapes beautifully over the body, drawing attention to the flared, flowing sleeves without clinging to any particular area. Perfect for casual occassion, we’d say!
Stop Printed V-Neck Anarkali Kurta
Anarkalis are best friends for full-figured women and we especially love this Stop Printed Anarkali with the subtlest puffed sleeves to draw the eye to the shoulders and a small, delicate print to even out the dimensions.
Whether you’re a petite woman or an apple-shaped one, there’s a kurta for all of us and choosing the right style can go a long way in making you feel your confident best. Accentuate your best features with this kurta buying guide and go on, own that desi girl look!
