Saree fabric is one of the most important collection. Your choice is most important before you gaga about shopping anything online. Picking the correct texture and material of cloth for saree is critical.
So, which is the right material for you?- Always choose a lightweight material to make you look taller as heavy weight saree will make you look shorter.
You have various fabrics like Pure Silk Sarees, Georgette Sarees, Jamdani Sarees, Chiffon Sarees, Kota Silk, Designer Net Sarees, Cotton Sarees etc. Nowadays, lightweight Kanjeevaram sarees are available. If you are on the plump side go for georgette sarees rather than chiffon sarees.
Prints or Borders?
The first rule to wear a saree if you are short in height is to avoid bold big prints and heavy borders.
1. Small and medium prints will look great on you.
2. Sarees with thin borders will make you look tall.
3. To look sensuous choose a saree in a solid and with dark color shades. Plain sarees with a dark color border will make you look beautiful.
Stripes or No Stripes?
Say NO to horizontal stripes. Vertical stripes on a Saree add illusion of vertical height and give the wearer a tall look. Vertical stripe sarees are available in our shop in all colors. But take care that the stripes are not too broad.
Nivi style is one of the best ways to drape a saree for short height, as it will give you a classy and minimal look that will stylise your figure.
