If you know how to drape it right, the saree can be the most figure-flattering outfit you’ll ever wear. Trust us, this classic Indian outfit can show off curves you never thought you had. All you need are a few skinny girl saree tips and you’re good to go! Take a look at these saree draping tips for thin women you need to try out soon.
1. Avoid clingy fabrics.
First off, you need to pick a fabric that flatters your figure. Thin women ideally look best in fluid silks, tissue and cotton sarees as these fabrics do not cling to the body but rather create curves and add an illusion of volume in all the right places.
2. Go the colour block way.
When it comes to colour, remember bright is beautiful. Go with colour block sarees in pop colours like pink, yellow or turquoise. They give the illusion of volume if done right.
3. Ditch the borders; bring on the prints!
Broad, elaborate borders are generally a no-no for lean figures. Make up for that with an attractive print. Taller women can afford to wear larger prints while petite women should opt for smaller, more delicate prints or embroidered butis.
4. High-necked blouses work like a charm.
Next up, is the all-important saree blouse. Choose a high-neck blouse with delicate all-over embroidery. You could also choose a blouse design with slightly puffed sleeves. Avoid tube tops or wide-necked blouses that only accentuate a smaller bust.
And while on the topic of blouses, in-built padding is also a good idea.

5. Low waist drapes accentuate your curves.
Drape the saree slightly lower that you normally would to accentuate the curves of your hips. Also, don’t hide your figure behind a loose pallu. Instead pleat and pin it at the shoulder.
The lehenga saree also looks great on thinner women.
6. Swap the conventional necklace for a kamarband.
A kamarband is a smart way to draw attention to a slender waist. Keep it a simple, slender one over something too chunky. If you’re wearing a kamarband to a day event, an oxidised silver one would be ideal.
