Obviously, none of us would want to waste our money like this. So, it is very much necessary for you beautiful ladies that which one is the right saree for you.
The choice of the saree needs to be formulated on aspects like your weight, height, skin, and complexion. Also, you need to take care of the fabric and design which you are wearing.
Let’s just talk about the body type as in whether you are thin, fat, tall or short. Shall we get started?
- If you’re heavy/fat/chubby
Wear some light fabrics like poly georgette, crepe, and chiffon and you would look kilos less than you actually are. Do remember that you don’t wear heavy fabrics like cotton, silk etc. If you are thinking to go with that heavily embroidered saree, drop the plan right now. A light weight and soberly embroidered saree is the right one for you. Go with dark colors and don’t forget the magic color black which is the best when you want to create an illusion of being a little thin. Printed sarees are the best bet for you.
2. If you’re thin/skinny
See, you have a choice here – either you may want to look just like you’re or a bit fuller. Whatever it is, these ideas will work for you.
First of all, be free to pick any type of embroidered sarees and fabrics like cotton, khadi, and silk. These fabrics will add some curves around you and also, be wary of the draping style. If you let the drapes be a bit flared, they will look great. Styles like Mumtaz style may not be the best choice for you considering how skinny you’re. But the usual saree draping style is a perfect fit for you.
Pick bright colors for they will really make you stand out. If you have certain areas that you want to highlight, try to pick designs that are focused on such areas.
3. If you’re short
Get ready for some tips to look taller. Firstly, dark colors will help. So, pick them.
Then stay away from wide borders. The wider borders you pick, the shorter you look. Choose long sleeves when it’s about blouses. Will make your arms look toned as well as a bit longer. Pick Chinese collar blouses (if your neck isn’t too thick). Oh! We do feel like a sexist which we certainly aren’t but fashion advice has to be put out bluntly.
4. If you’re tall
Do you know sarees make you look taller? But don’t worry! Focus on the sexy back of the blouses and some heavy embroidery. Printed sarees look amazing on tall women. So, grab them. Try lehenga sarees for party wear occasions.
