Festive Salwar Suits For Every Body Type

The salwar suit is undeniably the most comfortable and versatile outfit of the modern times. It is traditional in its roots and modish in its approach. The salwar kameez is a convenient attire option and can be styled both for ethnic and contemporary purposes.

While picking salwar suits, we often tend to go for the ones that seem more alluring. However, it’s best if you kept your body type in mind while you go salwar suit hopping next. So whether it is long kameez with salwar, short kurta salwar, Bollywood style anarkali suits, patiala suits or salwar suits for party wear, they exude the best when complemented by the apt body type.

So to narrow it down further and make it more lucid for you, we will give you a run down on the more common Indian body types and what kind of ladies salwar suits would sit perfectly on them.


Hourglass figure


This is the ideal body type with the right waist, bust and hips. You can flaunt any style on this body but anarkali suits look exceptionally well on the hourglass figure. Also, if you are planning to wear a Patiala, go for longer kurtis as they will bring out your figure well.





To further add an oomph factor to your look, you can throw in a funky belt on your waist- it will look beyond enamouring!





Pear-shaped figure


This body type has particularly larger hips in proportion to the bust. The waist is relatively narrower. Such body has complementing shoulders and a well-defined waist line usually.

Ladies with such body type, go for kurtis with churidar pants. They’ll not bring a lot of focus on your lower part of the body. You can work around your bust line to have more focus there. So go for an embroidered neckline or a deep-neck salwar suit.





Colourful kurtis will enhance the look for you. Prefer heels to flats while wearing salwar suits- they’ll flawlessly beautify the look for you.

Also, wear kurtis that will enhance your streamlined waist. So you can throw in some volume there and accentuate the area. like short flared kurtis with dhoti pants or patiala will suit your figure really well. 


This will lake your upper body less prominent and will draw more attention to the slimmer parts of your body.


Rectangular-shaped figure


This body type is also known as the straight figure, which as the name suggests is proportionate all through. The body doesn’t have a lot of curves and the upper body bears much symmetry to the lower one.





Since this body type does not call for concealing or smart dressing for any specific body part, you can pretty much wear anything. However, you can go for long floor length or anarkalis with embellishments all over. Embroidered salwar suits will also look gorgeous on your body type.

Anarkalis and floor length salwar suits will work wonders for you as tehy will give out an illusion of a curvaceous body for you.




One style tip though, since you have a straight figure, avoid going for too clingy or body hugging salwar kameez. They will make you look all the more leaner and will bring the no-curves in prominence. Always opt for bright, vivid colors.



Apple-shaped body


Also known as the inverted triangle figure, this body type tends to be slightly heavier on the bust and the tummy with broader shoulders. The lower body is usually narrower with streamlined legs. Such body types are mostly blessed with well-toned arms and legs and beautifully even out the figure.






For women with such figure, while picking salwar suits, go for kurtis that aren’t too tight on your waist. Flared kurtis with salwar or churidar will accentuate your body well and deviate the attention from your broad upper body.





If you want to go for a fitted kurta, complement it with dhoti pants or pallazos. Churidars and leggings are a big no for you. However if you must wear them, pair them with long kurtis only.
