Yes, it’s possible. You can look slim in a saree and here are the tips that we have scoured for you.
Fabric is important, so choose wisely
Believe it or not, the choice of fabric is really important. The type of fabric you pick is proportional to make you look slimmer or bulkier. Women’s sarees can be found in so many fabrics which can help you hide those unwanted pounds easily. Pick light weight sarees like georgette, chiffon or crepe. These fabrics tend to stick to your body that flatters your femininity more. But if you wear it in an ugly manner, then they turn out to add to your weight.
Say no to cotton fabric as it tends to spread a bit which will make your frame even wider. However, you can pick cotton silk sarees. Don’t pick art silk saree though as they aren’t suitable for heavy people.
Choose light and tiny prints
If you want to look slim in Bollywood or any sarees, make sure you pick tiny or lighter prints. Even sleek and light embroidered sarees create a slimming illusion. Going for bold and bigger prints will only widen your frame and you would surely not want that. Small motifs and butties make great choices. Big and huge embroideries on the other hand, make you look bulkier. If you are going for printed sarees, choose tiny prints.
Go for narrow and sleek borders
If you have remembered, there are many Bollywood divas, who wear sarees with big borders and look shorter yet bulkier. You will find pretty examples. Big borders create the illusion of bulkier frame and even make the height look shorter.
