How To Look Slim In Saree?

1. Choose The Right Fabric

Do you know it all depends on your choice of fabric? If you choose the right fabric, you can look amazing and actually hide those extra pounds. What you need to do is to pick up light-weight fabrics (Georgette, Crepe, Chiffon etc) for they stick to your body very closely but not in an ugly manner, and make you look slender.

Try not to go for the cotton. If cotton is something you can’t ignore, go for the lighter one. There are in fact cotton silk sarees which would go perfectly with your body type. Try it! Avoid art silk sarees at all costs. They are just not meant for fat or plump people.

2. Go for Lighter Prints

To look slim in sarees, you must try to go for the lighter prints – light or sleek kind of embroidery and if it’s just the print – go for the smaller one. The bold and big prints would make you look plump. Remember that the heavy material isn’t meant for you. When it’s about embroidered sarees, go for really small motifs. Avoid the huge chunks of embroidery. With printed sarees, avoid big floral prints. Instead, go for small floral prints or abstract prints. Digital prints also work amazingly to conceal your flabby areas.

3. Pick Sleek Borders

Have you ever seen Bollywood actress Rani Mukherji wearing sarees with big borders? Did you notice how she looks shorter in such sarees? If you’re her fan, don’t get offended. The diva does carry the attire very well but sometimes she misses the point. Sometimes she forgets that she is short and she doesn’t need to look ‘shorter’. But this is something you shouldn’t forget. If you’re plump and short, go for narrow borders to look slim in saree. Big borders are just not meant for short and fat people.

4. Wear dark Colors

Who doesn’t look slim in black? Do you know why that happens? It’s because of the color. If you choose the right color, you can definitely look slim in sarees. Wear some dark colors like purple, black etc and you can see the difference yourself.

5. Drape it well

Draping is the most important part of wearing a saree. Who hasn’t seen some old age aunties wearing sarees in a shabby manner? What’s their excuse?  “We’re fat, that our sarees look like this when we wear it.” But that is not so. They get a shabby, eeewwww kind of look because they forget the importance of fine draping. And this, you should not forget. Make sure you have draped your saree well. You shouldn’t tug in the entire drapes at one place unless you want to show an extra bulged out tummy.

6. Wear A Long Sleeved Blouse

If you wear long sleeved blouses, you would look thin. We know you might love without sleeves or mega sleeves blouses but if you want to look slim in sarees, you would have to give up on that. Go for long sleeves or quarter length sleeves to look slim in saree.

    • There’s no obsession with looking slim. In fact, we’re definitely planning a post to make skinny people look fuller while wearing sarees.
      It’s just a part of fashion to look just the way you’re. If you wear a dress wrong, you might look fat or super skinny. This post just addresses the situation when you look fluffy for no reasons but bad dressing sense.
