How to Choose Kurtis for Your Body Type

Kurtis are a major part of our wardrobe. So let us look at the things that you should keep in mind when choosing a kurti to suit your body type.


Choosing the fabric of your tunic may seem like a simple task, but the fashion world has lots to offer in terms of fabric quality. Pure cotton are difficult to maintain while polyesters can endure rough-handling. Chiffons are rich while satin can be too glamorous for daily wear kurtis. Petite body types can try layering their clothes with more than one fabric to add volume. Those who want to flaunt their curves will find that polyester mix fabrics are body-hugging. To avoid attracting attention to the curves, cotton and linens are more generous.

Embroidery work or embellishments in the hemlines will also play a role. Short kurtis with embellishments will bring attention to the area where the tunic ends allowing you to show-off your curves.


Fashion has changed in its outlook towards prints. Earlier large prints were avoided by curvy body types, but now, you will find many women of different body types wearing large prints. At this time, floral prints are a big thing in fashion. Most fashion houses have been using floral prints on their clothes and there is no reason why you should add some to your wardrobe too.

Readymade or Custom-made

Readymade clothes cater to people with fixed body shapes. They are not tailored to meet your body’s exact measurements. This is why readymade clothes are good for daily wear, but custom-made clothes are always a better option. By customizing your kurti, you will be able to ensure that the seamstress understands your body type and is able to stitch the clothes to enhance your looks.
