The saree, a timeless symbol of elegance and grace, drapes beautifully on every woman. But sometimes, finding the perfect saree that flatters your figure can feel daunting.

Here at Simple Sarees, we know that every woman deserves to feel confident and stunning in a saree, irrespective of her body type.

That's why we've put together these 6 Saree Secrets to help you look slimmer and more elongated without needing to hit the gym!

  1. Know Your Body Type

The first step to picking the perfect saree is understanding your body shape. Are you pear-shaped with wider hips? An hourglass with a defined waist? Or perhaps apple-shaped with a fuller midriff?

  • Pear-shaped: Opt for sarees with vertical prints or sarees with border detailing to elongate your silhouette. Balance your hips with a well-fitted blouse that cinches your waist.
  • Hourglass: You can truly rock any saree style! But for a touch of extra wow, try a saree with a contrasting blouse to highlight your curves.
  • Apple-shaped: Choose sarees made from flowing fabrics like georgette or chiffon. Empire waist blouses that sit just below the bust can flatter your figure.
  1. Fabric is Your Friend

The weight and drape of the fabric can significantly impact your overall look. For a slimmer appearance, opt for lightweight fabrics that drape effortlessly. Here are some of your best choices:

  • Georgette Sarees: This sheer, flowy fabric creates a graceful silhouette.
  • Chiffon Sarees: Similar to georgette, chiffon is lightweight and adds a touch of elegance.
  • Crepe Sarees: This fabric has a beautiful texture and drapes beautifully on most body types.
  1. The Magic of Prints and Patterns

While bold prints can be beautiful, they can also add visual weight. For a slimming effect, choose sarees with smaller, dispersed prints or vertical stripes. Solid-colored sarees with thin borders are universally flattering.

  1. Draping Techniques for a Flawless Look

The way you drape your saree can make a world of difference! Here are some tips:

  • Avoid too many pleats: Stick to 4-5 neat pleats that are evenly spaced.
  • Pleat placement is key: Tuck your pleats slightly towards the side of your navel for a slimming effect.
  • Petticoat perfection: Choose a well-fitted petticoat that sits slightly above your navel for a smooth drape.
  1. Accessorize Wisely

Accessories can elevate your saree look, but be mindful of scale. Opt for long earrings or delicate necklaces to draw the eye upwards and create a lengthening effect. Avoid chunky jewelry that can add bulk.
