Your best friend’s wedding is just a few weeks away and you are nowhere close to the target weight you thought you would achieve. In fact, you have put on a few kilos, what with the crazy festive season, gorging on delicious sweets and lavish meals with friends and family! But don’t lose heart, ladies! On the brighter side, you are one curvy goddess and you have just the body to pull off the sexiest outfit of all seasons — the saree!
The best thing about a saree is that it suits women of all sizes. Done smartly, a saree can work wonders for your style this wedding season. All you need to know are a few tips to choose the perfect one to hide the belly flab and look absolutely fab. So, put the smile back on that lovely face and keep these tips in mind when you drape a saree this time.
1. Pick lightweight fabrics like chiffon and georgette.
Steer clear of stiff fabrics like cotton or organza, as they add volume to your body. Lightweight fabrics like chiffon, georgette, silk and crepe are your best friends. They drape well, give you the perfect fall and accentuate your curves gracefully, by giving your body a balanced look.
2. Make darker colours your best friends.
Pastels and softer shades could be in vogue, but you need to choose wisely. And when it comes to hiding body flab, nothing works better than dark colours. So, let the maroons and blacks dominate your sartorial choices this season for a drop-dead gorgeous look.
3. Choose small prints and delicate embroidery.
Love big and bold prints? Hold on, ladies, that’s a fashion blunder you don’t want to commit, if you have a voluptuous figure. Smaller prints, light designs and delicate but intricate embroidery will help you look slimmer. Check out our store to find your perfect match.
4. Stay away from broad borders.
What’s it got to do with borders, you might ask? Broad or heavy borders might look great when you look at a saree, but they will only make you look bigger. Sarees with subtle or narrow borders make you look slim and tall. A saree without a border too works well too.
5. Opt for fewer pleats and an uncomplicated drape.
All said and done, you can’t overlook the importance of correctly draping the six-yard wonder. While loose and untidy pleats can add volume to your appearance, a saree draped and pinned neatly with fewer pleats at the waist is a great way to look slim and sassy.
So, forget all your worries and pick the right saree to flaunt those fabulous curves in style.
