One of the most elegant wear for Indian women is the traditional yet modern saree! They are loved by women by all age groups; worn especially on occasions, gatherings and we absolutely LOVE them! Saree draping is more of an art than a technique. It depends on the draping style and the right type of saree picked which compliments your body shape and personality. We here at Borrow It Bindaas would love to share a few simple rules in which you can look taller and slimmer in a saree!

Fabric: Lightweight fabrics like georgette and chiffon stick to the body closely, so they make you look slimmer! Brocade, heavy silk, cottons, and kanjivarans look good on tall and slim women because they add volume to the over all look.  


Color: Go for dark shades. Dark colors make you looker slimmer and they hide the flaws but bring out your curves!


Border Of Saree: Bigger or wider borders will make you look short. So for you ladies, who don’t want that, should go for a slight border or no border at all!


Prints: For a slim look, go for small prints and designs.


Drape Correctly!!!!!: This is the most important rule!!! Draping a saree neatly ensures that you look slimmer and cover up the not so perfect areas!
