Kurtas for the plus sized woman

Kurtas offer a great option to those women battling body image issues. Plus, they look really cool and are a great option for hot weather.

Every woman aspires to have a perfect body. It is said that even the most beautiful women in the world confess to having at least one feature or body part that they truly detest. The attainment of perfection is a never-ending quest for most. Meanwhile, the fashion world continues to set unrealistic standards of beauty, often making clothes only for smaller sized women.

Where are the plus sized women supposed to shop from? It is demoralising to walk into a fashion store only to be told that they don’t stock ‘bigger’ sizes. Not being able to wear what you want in a size that fits you comfortably is discriminatory, at best. Clothes must cater to the woman’s size, not the other way around!

So plus sized women find options in looser clothing that does not display their bulges or expose their flaws for the world to see. This is why sarees and kurtas find the most favour among Indian women.Kurtas are quite versatile too, since they can be paired with both jeans and fitted pants, as well as salwars, palazzos and churidars.

Kurtas – the default option!

Most straight cut kurtas do not dip into the waist and hip line, thus helping the wearer camouflage a muffin top or a bigger pair of hips. But these kurtas also have a manly silhouette instead of a feminine one. Thus, many women prefer the next best option – they buy dress material online and get kurtas stitched to their exact measurements.

However, leading fashion apps like Jabong are pioneers in online fashion for all, with inclusive sizes to cater to every kind of woman. Online dress shopping becomes pleasurable with Jabong, which stocks larger sizes as well as the smallest ones. So no woman feels excluded or inferior about her body size – she just needs to check the featured size guide and make the purchase as per her actual measurements.

The most beautiful kurtas in a variety of fabrics and styles are available online. From short kurtis to wear over jeans and fitted pants, to long kurtis to wear over churidars, you can find a wide range of kurtas under online dress shopping. The season’s freshest styles and colours, as also chic fabrics that complement your figure, are all available online.

Complement the kurta

What you pair your kurta with depends on the style and silhouette of the kurta you choose. A short kurta will look great with pants or a loose Patiala salwar. Meanwhile, a long kurta with a flowy hem will go well with pitted pants or even a churidar. Knee-length kurtas go well with palazzos, but make sure that the kurta is not too baggy.

There you have it – a simple guide to buying the best kurtas when you next go online dress shopping.
