Normally if you are curvaceous, panelled length lehenga styles will flatter your shape by creating a slimming effect and lending the right amount of flare to your silhouette.
For taller brides, lehenga styles with the choli and lehenga in contrasting hues enables to smartly cut the height. Also flaring floor length silhouettes with tiered or panelled embroidered designs are perfect.
