You can never go wrong with saris especially when you have just gotten married and you have to attend after shaadi functions almost every other day. Sari is probably one of the oldest and elegant looking outfits ever because it can make a woman look so graceful and yet stunning at the same time. If you are a newly shaadi bride who loves to wear saris, this blog post will help you in selecting saris according to your body type.
For Pear Shaped Beauties
Pear shape is the most common body type when it comes to Pakistani women. If you do not know what a pear shaped body is like, it is one with a slightly heavier bottom in comparison to the upper body. Women who have this body type can look graceful and gorgeous in saris with light and airy fabrics like georgette and chiffon which drape easily. When draping your sari, go for a ‘seedha pallu’ and avoid mermaid cut because it will draw more attention to your fuller hips. Minimal embroidery and punchy colors look best on this body type.
If You are On the Heavier Side
If you have got some extra pounds lurking around your tummy, you can still look fabulous in a sari. Chunky embroidered saris in a slightly heavier fabric than chiffon and georgette is best for such a body type. However, make sure you get your blouse stitched a little longer and that too, in contrasting shades to cover the problem area and when draping the sari, settle for an ‘ulta pallu’ that will draw attention away from your bulky belly. Always bear in mind, never ever choose a net sari.
Look Pretty in Plus Sizes
Plus sized women tend to shy away from wearing saris but not anymore. Plus sized women can look graceful too in silk and chiffon fabric saris. But never opt for stiff fabrics that can add extra pounds to your already heavy frame. In order to make your flabby arms go unnoticed, you can wear long sleeved blouses and always remember to go for dark colors. Dark colors like black and navy blue and even Prussian blue have a slimming effect on heavy figures. These will look great on you if you wear them of shaadi of a friend or relative.
Voluptuous Women like Marilyn Monroe
Flaunt your figure in saris with snuggly fabrics like net, chiffon and georgette in dark colors. Such fabrics drape easily and have a slimming effect around your tummy. You can be creative when it comes to blouses. You can choose ones with a criss-cross back or halter tops, all depending on what you like.
Tall Women with a Slim Body
If you are tall and you are lucky to have a slim frame too, you can go for saris with heavy borders and big prints that will make your daunting height go unnoticed.
Petite Women with a Slim Frame
Slim ladies who have a short height must always go for small prints and thin borders. Also, pay more attention to draping the sari because unevenly draped sari can give you a very shoddy appearance.
If you did not know already, now you know how to choose a sari that will flatter your body type. Keep these simple rules in mind when going for sari shopping next time and you will look gorgeous every time you don the perfect sari.
