The length and ghera of your anarkali can define how tall or short you look. Ensure that your anarkali is of the right length, fits you perfectly and doesn't have varying patterns on it. Also, pick a monotone anarkali with minimal embellishments to look an inch taller!

Pick Lehenga With A Right Length

Lehengas can look great on you, if you wear it below your navel.  A lehenga that’s worn too high on the waist can make you look more short and plump. So, leave at least three-four inches of space between your blouse and lehenga to look a few inches taller. 

Pay Extra Attention to Borders

Whether you're picking a lehenga or saree, always opt for narrow borders and stay away from broad and embroidered borders. 

Choose Neckline Carefully

When you’re getting your blouse stitched, always go for necklines that show off your collarbone or ones that are broad, like a U-shaped one or a V-neck. If you're not too fond of wearing deep necks, try to wear something that shows your neck and collarbone. 

Kanjivarams Sarees

Who said that Kanjivaram makes you look short? Drape your saree in such a way that pleats don't create mass in just one place. Spread them a millimeter away from each other and make sure that they stay pressed down to look a few inches taller. 

Avoid Layered Dresses

Layers might be in all rage, but if you're short then you should steer away from capes, shrugs and extra dupattas. Instead, you should opt for a lighter and less voluminous look to give an illusion of height.
