Nothing beats the convenience, ease and grace of a kurti. And thanks to the magnificent fashion designers of our times and Bollywood divas, we have an endless variety of kurtas and kurtis for ladies available online.

The tricky part, however, lies in choosing the right one. It is understandably pretty hard to discern whether a particular style, you have pinned your heart on, would in-reality look good on you or not. You are not alone here.

That’s why in order to help you win everyone with your gorgeous sense of style, Mustard Fashion has curated a quick guide as to how to select the right kurti based on your body type. Read on to go shopping soon.

Apple Body Shape


Women with this body type have broad shoulders, carry weight around the middle but are blessed with toned legs. There is no clear waistline defined. For ladies under this category, kurtis drawing too much attention to the upper body, Salwar, Patiala and loose cuts are a strict no-no. A-line kurtis, on the other hand, will make you look absolutely stunning.

To give yourself a desirable slim look, better opt for dark-coloured kurtis with flare and cuff sleeves. The preferred neckline will be an embellished V-shape and advised cloth material would be silk and cotton. Apart from it, you can even look for beautiful shoulder designs.

Inverted Triangle Shape


An inverted triangle body type has a broad upper body, smaller hips and skinny thighs. To them we say, whenever you head to online kurti shopping sites, look for horizontal stripes and prints with low V & U-necklines. An additional flare at the waist would give your body an impression of a fine curvy waistline.

Heavy collar patterns, high necklines and strong shoulder details will only highlight your flaws.

Hourglass Shape


This shape is most desirable among ladies nowadays. Women carrying this shape have equal bust and hips width, which makes them look even more flattering due to their narrow waist. Low bust enhancing neckline on a narrow waist-defining kurti is what would look best on this figure. A bootcut straight bottom would further help enrich your look.

Never choose an ill-fitting kurti and bulky patterns as they would hide all the obvious strengths of your body type.

Pear Shape


This is the most common Indian body shape and comes with small shoulders, small bust but profound hips and thighs. An obvious advantage of this figure is a clear waist definition. Long kurtis with front cut, boat neck/square neck/collar pattern and prints of sequins, polka dots or stripes are your best bet. You can even experiment with an Anarkali or flare-style kurti. Ruched and bishop sleeves will further highlight your strong points.

Only mistakes to stay away from would be tight bottoms and body-hugging fabrics.

Rectangle Shape


Women with well-defined arms, toned stomach and long torso fall in this category. Almost everything suits this athletic body type. However, kurtis fastened around the waist and made of heavy fabric should do the trick. You can even wear a belt to achieve this look.

Keep away from both tight and loose-fitting kurtis though.
