    Hi Madhvi,
    I have a similar issue. I try NOT to make my kurta short. I opt for 3/4th sleeve. Try to wear slight heels. It will definately make you feel slimmer.

    May be just off the point a bit, but wanted to warn of the risks of back problems with use of high heels.

    you try this. hope this might help you.

    Stick to vertical lines

    Are you on the fat side? Fear not. You can look especially glamorous. Stay with vertical lines or prints. And try matching tops/ kurtis in light shades with bottoms of darker shades.

    Fabrics that fall

    Wear fabrics such as chiffon, crepe or synthetics as they fall evenly around your body. Wear kurtis and tops with broad necklines. Compliment your outfit with a scarf; it hides a heavy bust line.

    The colour of night

    Black is a safe colour to wear. It makes you look slim. You could also experiment with soft colours and pastel shades.

    Avoid

    ~ Horizontal prints/ lines are a strict no-no. They tend to accentuate the body's width. Also, checks and tight body hugging tops should be avoided.

    ~ As far as possible avoid kurtis/ tops that have designs/ embroidery in the chest area. It will accentuate your bust line and make you look 'top heavy'.

    ~ Avoid wearing tops/ kurtis that have heavy block prints. Keep away from whites; they will make you look big.

    ~ Stretch jeans, pedal pushers and tapering jeans should also be avoided. They will make you look top heavy, with your legs tapering like sticks below.

    ~ If you plan to wear a sari, avoid sleeveless blouses. Your flabby arms may not look good. Short sleeves will look good. Avoid 3/4th sleeves as those will tend to accentuate heavy arms. Avoid cap sleeves as they too can accentuate heavy shoulders. Even if you are wearing crepe, chiffon or a synthetic sari, cotton blouses are the safest to wear.

    Hip cover

    Wear kurtis that cover the hip line -- knee length or below the knee is just fine. As far as possible, wear full-sleeved kurtis. High-collared and closed neckline tops should be strictly avoided. Avoid thick cotton fabrics and starched clothes; they won't blend with your body type.
