Saree is one dress which is loved by all women and we literally mean that. But there are a few women, who no matter how much crave for wearing sarees, don't opt for the option. Why? They're fat. Yup, the tensions, and busy lifestyle has taken its toll on them and their beauty is sometimes reduced due to this. Are you one of them? Have you put on a little more weight than you should have and now you look simply fat when you wear sarees?
We're sure that due to this reason you have started resisting wearing sarees. But hey, don't you worry. Just because you have a few more pounds on your body doesn't mean that you can't look good in sarees, especially when there's a way to look slimmer in them. Yup, it's possible. You can look slim in saree. Here are the ways -
Choose 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.
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.
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. 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.Wear 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.
