    Feeling blue
    Since colour is a great weapon in the fuller-figured’s arsenal, we like this brightly-hued blue kurta. From Christina, the Mumbai-based design label, the silk top can segue seamlessly from day to night. At Raintree, Sankey Road for RS.3,550. Details: 22354396

    Print Perfect
    This Anupamaa Dayal creation caught our eye at the recent Wills India Fashion Week. The silk ensemble—Naina dhoti pants with a shirt and dupatta—sports a diamond ikkat print all over, but its placement, colour and dyeing technique vary in all three, creating a sense of drama. Tailored yet free flowing, this Indo-Western design gives a flattering fit (customised for plus sizes). Rs.27,200. Details: anupamaa.com

    Waterproof it
    A trip to the beach needn’t see you hiding behind ugly skirted swimsuits. Stay away from boy shorts, too, says designers Shivan & Narresh as they give an illusion of shorter legs. Instead, opt for diagonal or vertical lines across your torso—like this one-shoulder maillot with a bow from the duo’s latest line (customised for plus sizes). Rs.9,500. At The Colonnade, HAL Airport Road. Details: 40981875

    Go traditional
    Helping you cut out the bling and yet retain the glitz needed for an ethnic look, is this silk kurta from Sustain by Good Earth. With its all-over clover print in gold brocade, the pink gives you a shot of glamour without overdoing it. Team with a skirt or the chevron-printed silver trousers featured here. At UB City. Rs.16,400. Details: 41738870

    Dangerous curves
    If floor-grazers have been your go to look, then it’s time for a rethink. This pencil skirt with cluster embellishment, from Asos Curve, checks all the boxes for a chic look. With a high-rise waist and below-the knee hemline, it lengthens your torso and gives you an hourglass figure. Team with a crop top and heels for an evening out. From UK sizes 18-28. Rs.4,800. Details: asos.com

    Long and short
    Maxis aren’t the only way to cover up. Why don’t you give this animal jacquard jumpsuit from Violeta by Mango a try. While its V neck lengthens your neckline, its short sleeves and elastic drawstring waist with grosgrain ribbon ensures comfort. At the store in Orion Mall. Rs.7,999. Details: 22682155

    Toe the line
    Taking the boring out of black is this long dress from Wendell Rodricks. Showing just the right amount of ankle and wrist, the linen dress smartly uses vertical red line appliqué and piping to lengthen the body and draw the eye away from any problem areas. Available at Wendell Rodricks Design Space, Panjim, Goa. Rs.11,800. Details: 0832 2238177

    Colour pop
    A well-tailored jacket can be the perfect complement to any outfit. Streamlining the shoulders, nipping in the waist and camouflaging any unseemly bulges, it gives great coverage and shape. Try this red one from Curvy by D Muse, with a panelled V neckline and a dipped hemline, which will go great with a skater dress or a skirt in a darker hue. Up to 5XL. Rs.2,699. Details: myntra.com

    Tales of tulle
    Thumbing its nose at the concept that fuller figured women must stay away from pastels is this sheer Mary Katrantzou tulle cardigan. Whimsical and elegant, it is detailed with glitter flowers and pastel-pink trims. Layer it over a tonal camisole and team with a pencil skirt or cropped trousers. Up to UK 20. Rs.82,755.
