Vertical patterns

The first and most ancient rule that we pint-sized people have learned by heart is to wear vertical patterns on clothes. The vertical design not only gives an illusion that makes us look taller but thinner also (every bride’s dream!). You can opt from as simple as vertical stripes to complicated motifs from amongst the various lehenga patterns.

Let the pattern start from the top of the lehenga to the bottom. If there is no border to the bridal lehenga, better!

One color

Choose an outfit of a single color to give height to you. We know the love for contrasts will draw you towards all the multicolor options. But trust us! You would want to avoid them. Avoid multicolor outfits because the different colors will break the height and will make you look petite.

The single colored bridal lehenga for short girls will give an illusion of longer legs and thus, serves the purpose!

Darker tinted hues will do the trick! Ditch your love for pastels for a day! You can also opt for monochromes which are very much in trend these days.

Small Motifs

As much as you would want to go for big prints or embroidery, we advise you against it. Select smaller motifs so that the lehenga does not cut out on your height.

Also, don’t select the lehenga with a lot of gap in between the motifs. Select the one with allover embroidery or with very less gap between the motifs. This will give you more height and will look alluring.

If you select lehenga with allover embroidery, there also, do not opt for the ones that have one or two big motifs. This will concentrate the focus on those bigger motifs and will make you look short. Thus, select the embroidery pattern in such a way that some of the motifs are not way bigger than the other motifs on the lehenga.

Also, do not select the jewelry with bigger pieces. Or if you want to go for statement pieces, then avoid wearing everything. For e.g. wear only earrings and a ring. Ditch the heavy necklace and bangles. Wear the minimalist look with these bridal lehengas for short height.

Wear it with a style and bring out the diva in you!

Thin Borders

With all the trendy embroidery and patterns, the borders are becoming broader and heavier. Even though the broad borders give a heavy royal look but sadly, it doesn’t work for us shorties. Opt for the lehengas with minimal or thin borders. This will give a finite look and will give an impression of longer legs. Works for us!

While selecting a perfect bridal lehenga being a short height girl,  You can opt for borders that are without any motifs like gota border or golden sequins. This will not take away the height of the overall look.

Make a hairstyle with a bouffant to add to the height.

If ever there was a decision to be made about fabric, it is now! No! Cotton, silk or brocade are a big no no! These are stiff material and give a very sturdy look.  The flowing look given by net, georgette or chiffon looks scintillating for bridal lehengas for short girls! Also, these fabrics do not look sturdy and are delicate giving a leaner and taller look to the bride. What else do we need 😉

Net, Georgette and chiffon are very comfortable and lightweight, given the embroidery and embellishments are not too heavy in weight. Net and Georgette are suitable of the three as they are able to hold heavy embroidery or crystals without getting ruined themselves. Do not opt for fishtail style lehenga for short height brides as they are body hugging and give away on the actual height of the bride! Also, not very spacious and comfortable to let us walk freely!

Do not wear high necklines in the blouse as it will shorten the neck and will make you look petite. A long and slender neck looks beautiful for blouse of bridal lehenga for short height girls . But do not wear very deep necklines because it would look cheap and uncomfortable. It might also call for unwanted wardrobe malfunction. Thus, keep the neckline low but not very low!

Length of the Lehenga

The last and final important point to remember while you select your bridal lehenga for short height girls is the length of your lehenga. As much as the longer, floor-length lehengas are in trend, these are a big no no for stubby brides. A trail of the lehenga following you will not only accentuate your short height, it will also make you look chubby.

Wear the lehenga with the length that ends at your ankles. Show off your beautiful footwear. This is the time! It will not only give a height to your overall look but will also look chic.

Show less of your midriff as it will give a taller look to your ensemble. Wear your lehenga above the waist. Do not opt for blouse that is in kurti style as these will give a confusing look and will not serve the purpose.
