#1. Pear-shaped body

If you are a heavy bottom beauty with less on upper body and a well-defined waist line, then you have a pear shape body. Balance your curves by wearing a blouse that has both detailing and volume. Take advantage of your slim waist by wearing low waist lehenga or draping bridal saree just below navel. Don’t add much volume to your lehenga as it will make you appear out of shape. Avoid wearing tube tops or fishtail gowns which will highlight only your bottom.
