Apple shaped women usually have a heavier upper body and slender legs. Simple A-line Kurtas without pleats would look best on women with apple shaped bodies. Highlight your thin legs by choosing skinny jeans or tight churidaars. Leggings are also a goop option. Avoid wearing Patiala salwars and yolk style kurtas. Focus on darker colored tops as they would make you look slimmer.

If you are pear shaped, then you would have a wider lower body and thinner upper body. Selecting kurtas that focus attention on the upper body and shoulders are recommended. Sleeveless and racer back kurtas are a good option.

Choose bottoms in darker colors to camouflage your lower body. Also avoid printed bottoms, as this would directly focus the attention to your lower body. Long tunics, A-line kurtas, anarkalis and angrakhas highly compliment pear shaped bodies. Since you have a slender upper body and shoulders, you can experiment with different styles of neck. Boat neck, yoke pattern with detailing and mandarin neck are good options.
