areas, choosing the right saree can not only hide your flaws but highlights
your strengths making you look beautiful. So let’s get started with the tricks
and tips of choosing that perfect saree!
Women who are on the Upper
Threshold of Weight:
Avoid stiff cotton sarees if you are overweight as they tend to stick to your
body giving you a broader look and make you look bulky. Instead go for chiffon
and silk sarees as they make you look slimmer giving you Y- shape. While stiff
cottons are a no no, handloom cotton sarees look great on overweight women
because of their soft texture and they are also comfortable to carry especially
in summers. Women who are short and heavy should avoid wide printed sarees. The
right way of draping a saree can also make you look thinner. Also wearing full
hand blouses will cover those flappy arms and they look trendy too.
Women who are on the Lower
Threshold of Weight:
If you have a thin physique then you should go for cotton sarees and heavy and
long traditional silk sarees like the Kanchivaram pattus or the Banarsi silks
as they add more volume to your body making it look more fuller. Avoid chiffon
and net sarees as they might make you look even more thin and petite. Tissue
sarees are also a good option. These sarees teamed with puff hand blouses will
look great if you have thin arms.
Women who are Tall:
Being tall, you really have lot of choices when it comes to selecting a saree.
Huge floral printed sarees and designer printed sarees will look great on you
as the huge prints will divert the attention from your tall sleek body. Though
you can carry off any saree with your height, avoid sarees with less or no
prints to avoid looking overly tall. Go for net sarees and thin fabric sarees
to reveal your sexy model look!
Women who are Petite:
Generally sarees with big borders tend to make a person look short. So, short
women should avoid wearing sarees with very big borders. Instead they can go
for sarees with small border or no border to avoid looking shorter. Also,
mildly printed sarees look great on slightly shorter women.
Women who are Apple Shaped:
Apple shaped women look more bulky on their upper body than their stomach and
back. If you are apple shaped then you may consider wearing embroidered sarees.
Sarees with embroidery work flatter apple shaped women and give a great look.
Women who are Pear Shaped:
Women with pear-shaped body have a heavier bottom compared to their upper body.
So, they should go for fabrics like chiffon and georgette, as these would
balance out their upper and lower part. A seedha pallu style of draping will
make your body look proportionate. Bold and bright colours will suit you the
best. You can opt for beautiful borders, small prints and embroidery work.
Women who are Hour Glass
An hour glass shape figure is considered the perfect shape for a woman wearing
saree as saree accentuates her sensuous figure. If your body type is hourglass
then you have a wide range of sarees to choose from as almost all types of
sarees will suit your body type. Just choose the right saree to suit your skin
complexion and weight. Avoid stiff cottons and tissue sarees if you want to
reveal your curves. Net sarees and thin designer sarees are perfect to flaunt
those fabulous curves and look gorgeous.
