It’s a myth that all types of sarees suit any body type. Ever wondered what saree suits your body type? Well, we have all the answers for you.
Pear Shaped Women – A pear shaped woman is typically one that has wide hips and thighs and narrow shoulders. The saree styles best suited for this body type is chiffon, crepe or georgette. These fabrics make the figure look symmetrical by distracting attention from the heavy bottom.
Apple Shaped Women – An apple shaped woman’s upper body is typically larger than her lower body. She’s typically heavy around the stomach. The saree best suited for this body type is one that has embellishments and embroidery. This makes the figure look balanced.
Slim Women – If weight is not an issue for you, slim women should wear fabrics that add volume to the body. These include heavy silks like Benarsi and kanjeevaram, cotton and organza. Lean and tall women can easily carry off geometric prints and designs.
Not so slim women – If you’re struggling with your weight, heavier women should opt for fabrics that shape the body like chiffon, crepe and net. Avoid fabrics that are bulky like tissue and brocade. Short and plump women should avoid sarees with wide borders and big prints.
When buying your next saree, go for something that is flattering for your body type.
