How to Choose the Perfect Blouse for Your Body Type

Saree is our classic traditional Indian wear. Saree not only makes us look gorgeous, but it also adds a flavor of our culture and tradition. A good saree has to be matched with a good blouse if we want to look our best in this outfit. Saree blouses play an important role in a woman’s look. Saree blouses are available in countless designs, but it is very important to choose the one that suits our body type. A blouse that would look good on a plus size woman, can never suit someone who is skinny. What we wear, reflects our personality to a great extent. Therfore, a perfect blouse is the one which not only compliments your saree, but also your personality. In this article, I will tell you some tips on How to Choose the Perfect Blouse for Your Body Type.

Most of the Indian women are blessed with great assets. It’s good, however a coin has two sides. So, at times it gets little difficult to choose the perfect blouse for top heavy figure. Don’t worry, you just have to be little choosy. Avoid embellished blouse. A blouse with heavy work on chest area is a big no-no for you, as it will add weight on your heavy top portion. Avoid deep necklines, instead go for bare back blouses. Wear monochrome blouse instead of large prints. Opt for blouses made from lightweight fabric like georgette, crepe, satin etc.

  3. I like backless but I am wide shoulder, slim and top heavy so very difficult for me to figure out how to wear my dream without looking odd one out!

    • I guess you should avoid anything with heavy work on chest and the strappy ones and sleeveless. Wear long sleeved or short sleeved backless. Experiment with neck lines.

  4. That’s a very thoughtful and good post…Thnx rashmita…for sharing this info
