The foremost thing to remember while styling up your outfit is to know the fabric that will suit your body type. For example, lycra or spandex are the materials which will be body-hugging and shows up your complete body figure. This might make you look bulkier and also might show up the unwanted bulges in your body. You must opt for free-flowing material like silk, cotton or georgette which will help your body breathe and give you a confidence to flaunt your outfit. These fabric just makes an ethnic wear classy and perfectly well-fitted as shown in the picture above.

2. Wear well-fitted outfits:

An anarkali dress can make you look great if it fits well or might as well feel like you have pulled it out from your grandmothers wardrobe! A well-stitched dress will give you the perfect silhouette. Do not wear an ill-fit dress to just make it look loose, rather, opt for palazzo pants or anti-fit tunic to style it up.

When you wear short or knee length kurtas you try to emphasize on your first half of the body and if it is bulky, makes you look fatter. Also avoid body-hugging kurtas as it only tends to show your body bulkier. Wear longer kurtas to hide the heavy torso bit and make it look longer and slimmer. It should be only slightly loose. Straight fit kurtas are also in fashion and especially the ones with a full sleeve or half sleeve, makes an excellent fashion trick to look slim.

To look slim in Indian Party wear, you might want to think what you wear underneath the dress. The innerwear has a more significant hand to make a difference to the figure. Wondering how? Saree and other Indian wear come in layers adding the bulkier look to your body frame. To bring your body back to the curvy shape, you need to invest in some tummy tuckers and shape underwear. These not only hide the extra flab but define the contour of your body figure. Also, make sure to wear the right bra as it might not look good if the chest looks too flat or too huge. Take your time in deciding the proper undergarments for each of your Indian wear. Check out how Sonakshi Sinha shows her curvy body in a tight body-hugging long dress.

Frills makes you look broader, so, if you have a heavy bust, you must avoid wearing frill tops. Also, wear a blouse showing off lesser skin such that it gives a slimmer look to you. If you have a bulging stomach, showing less is the key here. The longer length of the top also makes your torso look slimmer. Take a look at the picture above where the Bollywood actresses wear their longer tops to flaunt their dress with a slimmer looking torso.

Solid colour with minimal borders is great to make you look slimmer. Since the overall colour is the same on your body, they give an illusion of a thinner frame. Too much of zari work or sequin would give it a broader and heavy look. Be it a sari, a dress or an indo-western style – Jacqueline Fernandez, Anushka Sharma and Kajol have just killed it with the perfect look in bold coloured outfits.

Putting your hair up and making a high bun or a high ponytail helps you look slimmer. Having your hair loose and all over the place is not a great look for the Indian wear unless you have some curls at the bottom and well-managed hair.
