What kind of saree will suit you

"Plz follow the link and like our page for more updates"


The saree is worn in different ways in different states of India. However, the most common method is wrapping the cloth around the waist, making pleats in the front and draping the final length around the shoulder. The remaining fabric that is draped over her blouse and shoulder, falling behind her is called the pallu.  A woman draped in saree looks sensuous, elegant and graceful. Saree is the only outfit in India in which a woman is draped all over and still looks super sensuous and not vulgar at all. Saree reveals as much as it hides. A perfectly draped saree can make you look perfect and out of the world but a clumsy draped saree will make you look hideous and will bring down your personality.

All saree does not suit every one. It depends on the body structure of each woman. The only thing that you should keep in mind is that the saree should suit you and your body. Its not the beauty of the saree alone that matters. Its suitability is that which matters.

For fat women
 Georgette and chiffon saree will suit you. Thick sarees like the Mysore silk will make your fat body look much better. Organdy, tissue, cotton sarees will make the fat woman look more fat. So please abstain from using it.

For plump women
You can stick on to stiff sarees such as starched cotton sarees because the plumpness of the body will be highlighted if you wear the georgette or chiffon sarees.

For slim women
To look a bit fat try using tissue sarees, embroidered cotton sarees or organdy sarees. You will look more beautiful in this. 

For short women
 Short women, stick on to small bordered or non-bordered sarees. Also avoid big prints and highly width bordered sarees.

For tall women
  You can choose big flower printed or big prints sarees, also with high borders. Width bordered Kanchipuram saree with beautiful munthani will be awesome for you.

Different Ways of Wearing a Sari Different regions of India have their own distinct forms of draping a Saree. Some of these are outlined below:
  • Gujarati way: This version of draping, commonly known as the seedha pallu way, is also found in parts of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Bihar. Instead of opening to the left, the pleats are tucked so that they open to the right. Then, the pallu is taken to the back and brought over the right shoulder. It is then spread across the chest, and the left edge is tucked in the petticoat at the back.
  • Maharashtra method: Instead of the usual five-and-a-half meters, the sari in this version measures eight meters. One portion of the sari is drawn up between the legs and tucked in behind at the waist, while another portion is draped as a pallu over the bosom. Thus it forms a kind of divided sari, allowing greater freedom of movement.
  • Tamilian version: Like the Maharashtra version, the sare in this version, too, measures eight meters. After wrapping around the waist, the pleats are positioned along the left leg. The rest of the sari is taken over the left shoulder, wrapped once again round the waist and tucked on the left side.
  • Bengali style: The saree is worn pleatless; it is wrapped around the waist, brought back to the right side and the pallu is thrown over the left shoulder. The pallu is then brought up under the right arm and once again cast over the left shoulder.
