Things You Should Consider Before Buying Saree Shapewear

They say, ‘Modern problems need modern solutions’, and for all your saree problems there’s only one best solution, saree shapewear! Regular cotton petticoats are a thing of the past. This new-age innovation from Clovia is something that’s going to excite you. Most of us are annoyed about the drawstrings which come along with a saree petticoat. It’s too tight, irritating, and goes so hard on the skin. Also, the cotton fabric makes your body look bulky and shapeless. Saree shapewear is a replacement for this horrible innerwear.

In fact, you can actually wear any type of light or heavyweight sarees in shapewear with maximum ease and comfort. Apart from being the foundation garment to your saree, it also shapes your back, abdomen, waist, and thighs to give you a gorgeous lean look while wearing a saree, just like your favorite Bollywood actress.

Find Your Perfect Colour

Yes, it is very important for you to find the right colour which matches with your saree. The right shade of saree shapewear can break or make your perfect occasion. You can’t compromise on the colour, especially when it comes to sarees. Make sure you consider the colour palette of your saree collection while shopping saree shapewear online. Invest in some basic shades like black, red and nude that can go with most of your sarees.

Choose According To The weight of Your Saree

Although this saree shapewear has a strong and seamless waistband to hold all kinds of sarees. But if you’re new to them and don’t want to risk it then you could opt for the ones with a drawstring fastening to give a better hold to heavy sarees.

If you are more into lighter flimsy fabrics like chiffon and georgette then you could go for regular seamless waistbands and if you wear more of heavy sarees then go for the one with drawstring.

They Are Not Just For Sarees!

Well, if you are thinking that this saree shapewear is only meant to serve one purpose, then let me tell you something fascinating! You can literally wear them under your fitted gowns, sheer maxi dresses as well as your lehengas! These saree shapewears can totally be used as your regular shapewear, this smart move can actually save you a lot of money. They provide a smoother look under any outfit you choose to wear

Choose A Basic Shade and Use It Under Your Regular Petticoat

While you decide to choose a saree shapewear for your next occasion, if you think ditching your petticoat makes you feel uncomfortable, then simply don’t. You can go for basic colors like cream and work it under your desired petticoat. This will make you look fit and is comfortable as well. Also, the best thing about this is, you don’t have to invest a lot of money to buy shapewear of different colors, you can buy one basic cream or whitish shade and work in under almost all your sarees! Cool isn’t it?

Do Not Buy Small Size Purposely

If you’re thinking the smaller size you choose the slimmer you look then stop, this is not how the shapewear work at all. Especially a saree shapewear has to be of your size. No lesser or bigger! In fact, the shapewear that isn’t the right size for you will end up giving you more curls and bulges. And, let’s not even start on how uncomfortable it can become while you sit and walk. Saree shapewear can magically transform your boring look to an amazing desi diva one. All you need is to get the perfect one for yourself. Wondering where to get it from? Fret not as we’ve done all the digging for you. Head straight to Clovia and browse through a wide range of colours to match perfectly with your saree.
