TIPS FOR TALL AND PETITE BRIDES

We can all admit that those who are tall wanna be short, and those who are short wanna be tall and then there’s those that are perfectly fine. However, there is no right or wrong height but there is a way to dress for your height.

Petite Brides

Those who are smaller in height have all that advantage to wear any length of heel! But wedding shopping isn’t always easy for petite brides. Sometimes, the lehenga is too long, the blouses are enormous, and the dupatta just drowns you. With the right style tips and guidelines, your perfect wedding dress shopping can be done with ease. So, while shopping for your wedding dress, keep some of these tips in mind!

  1. Keep it simple: avoid oversized chunky embroidery, this will make you look overwhelmed and also keep borders to minimum
  2. The lehenga should be tied around your navel and should end a few inches below your feet - have at least 3-4 inches of space between the blouse and lehenga
  3. Avoid trails and puffy princess type of dresses
  4. Show off your neck and shoulders with modern cuts and necklines (halter, cold shoulders, boat neck, off-the-shoulder, illusion necklines, etc)
  5. Avoid large motifs, instead, go for patterned intricate embroidery
  6. Go for panelled lehenga to make you look taller
  7. Avoid stiff fabric (brocade, tissue)
  8. Try to wear a lehenga rather than a one-piece dress. The lehenga top and bottom gap helps pop out your upper body and lower body separately, whereas a one-piece may look a little unflattering
  9. Avoid low waistlines-help your overall look appear tall
  10. Opt accessories that will bring your outfit together. Jewelry helps provide a proportional look and attracts attention towards the face. However, don’t overdose on it, it will only make you look shorter! For example, don’t wear a rani-haar(long necklace) and a small necklace or if your wearing big earrings, go light on the necklace
  11. Make sure your dupatta isn’t too heavy. You can go for two dupatta’s, a lighter one for the head and the lehenga dupatta on the side or draped on your body
  12. Instead of a multicoloured outfit, go for with just one colour this gives the illusion of being taller
  13. Choose an outfit with front slits to add vertical lines giving the illusion of height
  14. Try outfits that are floor length and not ankle length
