Wearing Saree

Saree wearing: below the navel or above the navel?

A nice comment by Doyel in a blog post

I am 30 years old ,short,plump and fair and have a bit of a stomach.When i used to wear a saree previously i always used to wear it above my navel as i felt self-conscious to wear it otherwise.but i used to feel uncomfortable as the string felt extremely tight and made a deep red line across my stomach.It was my husband who first suggested to me that I wear my saree below my navel.i was afraid of looking trashy but he assured that wearing it one or two inches below the navel would not make me look so.he asked me to keep it covered always with my pallu if i felt uneasy,but wear it below all the same.
One year later,i now feel it’s much better this way.The line has almost disappeared and i have a smooth,soft stomach now.Previously i used to feel a very tight and suffocating feeling at my middle but now my stomach feels quite free and cool…and the thing i was most afraid of…it’s nothing ultimately,people do not treat me trashily.
I can can ultimately end up by saying that I’m a short and plump married woman who wears her saree two inches below her navel…and i like it this way,bcos it’s much more comfortable and cool.wearing the saree below the navel is not the same as flashing your navel in public…you can keep it covered with your pallu all the same and other people would hardly know the difference…but this way it is more comfortable and healthy.I would advise other women to do likewise.

And I agree with her completely. With a saree you have so much freedom of accentuating the parts that you want to and hiding the parts that you don’t want others to see.

You need to use all degrees of freedom allowed by Saree.

One of the other problem that happens if you wear saree above your naval is that if you go out to dinner, the saree that felt comfortable when you wore it before leaving the house is suddenly so tight that it is cutting of blood supply to your lower extremities.

You can avoid that by adjusting exactly how much to lower the saree.

I like the blouse design as well; I know it has been pulled up to reveal a little more skin, but the concept is sweet. There is a choker holding the upper piece and two gathered strings for the back part.

I know you are going to ask me: is the sexiness coming from the saree or the content within the saree? I think it is more of the later.

A lot of the time, the sexiness comes not from the saree, not from the flesh that is wrapped within the saree but the blouse design and how it all hangs together.


Tube top blouse and saree

This had to happen sooner or later. Both of the girls are wearing saree for the first time so they are allowed little more leeway, but if you didn’t have a blouse, wouldn’t you be tempted to put on a tube top? What’s the difference?

Here the tube-top is improvised, but it doesn’t have to be so. A great saree ensemble can be made using the tube top and a saree.

By the way, I also see a day where the half t-shirts will be worn with sarees! Can’t wait for that to happen.

I don’t like this saree as much, but the reason it is being showcased is that the design of the blouse is interesting.

First of all, it is 3/4 sleeve length and it also has a nice design on the sleeve. Add the open neck with matching frill to it and it becomes distinctive.

Most of the sarees have half or at most 3/4 length blouses because the way the sarees are dispensed. The sarees come with a piece for making a blouse and it is generally not enough to make a full sleeve blouse.

We should change that in some premier sarees, doesn’t make sense to save a few dollars and be constrained by the design.

Petticoat – the most under appreciated part of the saree.

5 points if you can name the person who “invented” or came up with the use of petticoat with saree!

Leave your answer in the comment and after a week or so I will post the answer.
