Have you ever attended an Indian wedding? Women busily moving here and there in colorful sarees is definitely a visual treat. Want to own a beautiful saree but do not know how to choose one? Go ahead and read this article fully to learn the most important saree buying tips.

What is a saree?

Saree or sari is a six yard clothing material worn by Indian women in unique style. Different types of sarees are available in various fabrics, patterns and designs. Choosing a saree to elevate your beauty is an art. Become an expert in this art. Even a small variation in color, design and pattern can have an impact in the way you dress up.

Sarees for overweight women:

Sarees are available in lighter and heavier weights. Light weight and slim material always suit obese women. Chiffon, Georgette or Chignon sarees are the commonly used types which also make women look thinner. These types of sarees go well with the shape of the body as if custom designed for that particular person. These light weight and thin variety sarees are easier to wear and maintain. Mysore silk sarees also make these heavy weight women to look slimmer. Make sure you are buying sarees with designs that are not too heavy nor too big. Also avoid wearing sarees with horizontal or cross lines.

Sarees for thin or skinny women:

Howmuchever one eats, due to genetic or other reasons, some women do not put any weight. Looking skinny could be embarrassing for some. Do not worry. Sarees are there to make you look good. Organza, Tissue, Tussar and heavy weight silk sarees with big borders and larger designs help these women a great deal. You can also choose heavy bordered or vertical lined sarees to add beauty. Bright colored sarees do wonders on thin women, but remember, wearing a suitable fashion accessory is very important to maintain the elegance.

Sarees for small women:

When we talk about small women, we should consider their weight as well. If they are petite, the tips for thin or skinny women can be followed. If the small women are heavy in size, they should be very careful while buying sarees with thick designs and big borders. Big borders make you look even shorter and heftier.

Sarees for tall women:

If you are tall but skinny, you should be very careful while picking a saree. Elegance is what you should have in mind rather a heavy makeup. Tall women can accentuate their beauty by choosing sarees with big borders. Tall but slim women can wear a gaudy or rich looking jewelry along with these sarees. Tall and heavy weight women should follow the same tips given for obese women.

Skin color is an another important aspect one should consider before buying a saree. Dark colored women should avoid wearing dull colored sarees. Fair looking women can elevate their beauty by wearing bright as well light colored sarees. The process of wearing a saree gets completed only when the matching blouse is stitched to complement the beauty. If saree is designed with heavy designs and works, choosing a blouse with minimal work will work as a magic spell. For simple sarees, you can choose to wear a heavily designed blouses. Have fun!
