If you’ve got a heavier torso, you’re going to love this tip. Opt for kurtas that are slightly loose. (Remember, slightly!) Wearing an excessively baggy kurta or tunic will defeat the purpose of looking thinner. Complement the look with well-fitted bottoms like cigarette pants, churidaars and leggings.
Shop for kurtis.

Dark colours help take the focus off a flabby tummy or back, while clothes in lighter colours tend to reflect light first off the rotund areas, actually highlighting the areas you most want to hide!
Put your outfit together in such a way that the darker shade is on your problem area. Blocks help to streamline your body, creating a smooth silhouette.
Shop for colour block kurtis.
Choose long sleek danglers and ditch the neckpiece completely. It’s a great way to make your neck look longer and more slender. Besides, a chunky necklace might make your bust look heavier. You can also add on sleek bracelets or thin bangles, rather than cuffs.
Shop for statement jewellery.

Colour block sarees work well for heavier women. Chiffon, georgette and other flowy materials are also your best friends. Instead of pleating it up, leave the pallu loose. It’s the best way to camouflage a flabby tummy or heavy bust.
P.S. While you’re at it, go for sarees with minimal embroidery or zari work. And avoid oversized and busy prints.
Shop for beautiful sarees.
Wear a blouse that accentuates your best feature by choosing the right neckline, sleeve length and blouse length. If you need to hide your tummy, opt for a longer blouse. Similarly three-quarter length sleeves help hide flabby arms and V-necked blouses help lengthen your torso.
Shop for stylish blouses.
Lengthen those legs with high-heeled shoes; they are always a perfect accompaniment to Indian wear. They give you that extra height that is necessary for your outfit to flow. Once you look great, you’ll feel great!
Most Indian clothing has a lot of pleats and draping. So do not add more weight to your look by leaving your hair wild and loose. Opt for a braid, a half bun or even a high ponytail to reduce the mass.
