Looking slim on a saree is a growing concern for many!
We keep getting request on sharing the tips/tricks to look fit and slim on sarees. Of course, it largely depends on your body shape, height, weight etc.
Even if you are blessed with an impeccable body, it is rather tricky to pick any saree and look like the flawless model you spot on clothing ads.
Point in case, perfecting saree look is a challenge.
Many tend to make the mistake of picking up wrong saree fabric. We mean you can’t expect to look toned down with a heavy drape weighing your body down.
Next is the draping style. If you know how to put your untamed heavy silk sarees in place with finely tucked pleats, then you are way ahead in the game. However, many fail on this step miserably and end up in a bloated saree look.
And then some just ruin everything with a wrong choice of blouse. Especially those who have flabby arms should be extra cautious on blouse, as it could easily cause a bad saree day.
Today post is to discuss few blouse designs and ideas that can tone down your saree look and make you look slim.
If the extra pounds on your arm are the great concern for your blouse choice, then pick a blouse that has embellished neck line. This way, you can keep your attention off from your hand and take it to neck.
If you wear cotton sarees a lot, sometimes the starch makes it impossible to get the fine pleats and pallu. If this is the case, go for relaxed draping like below and wear with a well fitted three fourth sleeve blouse.
Opt for fancy necks and sleeves that will keep the attention on these attractive places rather than your weak spots on your saree look.
Generally long sleeve tend to make you look thin. So go ahead and replace your short sleeves to full length one like below.
Some make the mistake of wearing puff sleeves with heavy sarees. If you have a slim toned down hand, this by no mean will create an issue. However, if you are conscious of your arm then you need to opt for semi-puff sleeve blouse like below.
If you are the one who like to get your blouse embellished, then please be aware that heavy work will tend to expand your blouse sleeve. Instead opt for innovative prints and color blocks in your blouse sleeve.
It can be creative and also aid you to look slim on your sarees. Even for silk sarees, instead of full embroidery or stone work, opt for brocade or plain printed raw silk blouses. This could cut down the heaviness on your saree look.
Wide neck with arm hugging well tailored blouse is another interesting option for those who want to have an impressive sleeve style. Don’t opt for short sleeves here, instead try elbow length sleeve.
Collar neck is a great way to distract eyes off the sleeves and take it to neck. Avoid this if you have broad shoulders.
Sleeveless blouses may be for slender arms. However if you are not blessed with lean hands, you can still wear sleeveless blouse with a relaxed layer like the one below.
And finally, if you don’t mind to experiment, you can try loose shirts with traditional sarees for a stylish indo-western look.
These are our quick ideas and tips for those who think they pick wrong blouse and that eventually cause major saree blunder. Remember certain blouse styles (Puff, Bell, Sleevless) are not meant for those who are worried of their arm fat. However, you still have other wonderful choices which when carefully stitched will resolve your blouse woes.
