Don't Wanna Show Your Tummy on Your Wedding? No Problem!

BY Sakshi | 07 Oct, 2016 | 10948 views | 3 min read

Calling all brides who don't or wouldn't wanna show off their tummy on their wedding day... whether it's because of the fact that you're conscious of your waist or if you generally aren't comfortable exposing your tummy, don't worry... you still have options! Yes, we know that most of the lehengas, or let's say your *typical* lehenga comes with atleast some skin show, there are still ways to work around it if you don't wanna do that! You should seriously get some inspiration from Muslim and Sikh brides.. they do it with so much grace! So here are some lehenga silhouettes which are going to work well for you if you just don't wanna show off that tummy!

Lehengas with cape blouses are a good option for brides who don't wanna reveal too much? Plus, they're so in these days! It can be a kaftan + Cape together.

Lehenga with Peplum Blouse

Peplum is a great option for brides who don't want to show off their belly. But if you're slightly on the heavier side, then you may have to experiment within peplum options as some of them can be very unflattering. So see what suits your body type.

Another great way to avoid showing too much tummy is to pick a high waisted lehenga which shows maybe a little bit of your tummy. The area just below the rib cage is generally the slimmest on a woman, so it looks flattering as well!

Another alternative if you don't want to show your tummy is to get a corset type blouse which is fitting, so it looks extremely flattering, but covers your tummy at the same time!

Lehenga with Kurta

Lehengas with a full kurta look extremely flattering, and regal at the same time! Another good option if you aren't big on exposing your midriff.

Altering your dupatta drape to cover your tummy is also a good way to avoid showing off your belly, and again, it looks pretty regal too!

Get a longer choli

A longer choli does not necessarily have to look odd.. this bride carries it off so well! Make sure it isn't in a fabric which will crumple or pouf up when you sit down.

Lehengas with an attached drape like this one work very well to hide the tummy and look so chic at the same time!
