How to look slim in saree blouse?
Here’s what you need to know.
Length of the blouse
It’s the most important factor in hacking your look to appear slimmer. The longer your blouse is, the better chance you have to hide away your problem areas. Don’t be shy to experiment with a long blouse. Thanks to your good luck, the current trend is long blouses that go up to the waist.
If you don’t want to go for such a long blouse, at least go for a length as that of a crop top. It should come at least until the mid of your waist. Avoid the very short blouses as they not only highlight your flabby tummy but also look vulgar after a point.
We all have cringed while looking at the fat aunties in Indian weddings who wear extremely short blouses with sarees. That just doesn’t look good. Don’t do it.
2. Fabric of the blouse
Now, there’s a fair chance that you may get tricked into thinking that fabric, like a georgette, will be great to look slim in saree blouse. It’s true that georgette and chiffon fabric make you look thinner but only when you wear it as a saree. For a blouse, you’ll need inner lining which would double the fabric and hence, makes it obvious that it won’t help.
Rather pick any fabric that wouldn’t need inner lining. Remember that it may be possible that your expensive party wear saree doesn’t give you that choice, but you don’t always have to wear the blouse that comes with the saree itself. Experiment with other designs and buy the blouse piece separately if you have to.
3. Color of the blouse
For the color, the same trick works – pick darker shades. Colors like black, bottle green, navy blue, etc. are perfect to help you look way thinner than you actually are.
It’s just the trick of how light reflects and gets absorbed. The way light is absorbed and reflected by darker shades makes your body hide away those bulges you’re not proud of.
4. Wear long-sleeved blouse
Pick a saree blouse with long sleeves to hide away the flabby arms. Long sleeved blouses are trending, and there are plenty of options available with little designing on the sleeves. That’s the best you can even imagine. Isn’t it?
Nobody will ever notice that you’re wearing long sleeves due to some other ulterior motive. Everybody is going to see how toned you look and compliment you for that.
Note that you shouldn’t pick designs that have extremely thick embroidery on the arms, or the trick wouldn’t work. Small embroidered motifs here and there will work. Anything other than that will not.
5. Wear a deeper back
When you get your blouse stitched, ask your tailor to keep the back slightly deeper than you usually do. The upper area of the back looks great and captures all the attention ensuring that nobody even notices your bulges or problem areas.
