Sari

 
 
 

Saris are traditional women’s garments that are primarily worn by people in South Asian countries such as India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Traditional saris have drapes that can be as large as nine yards long and four feet wide. The fact that there are more than 80 different ways to drape them in addition to the multitude of sari fabric choices makes them a versatile garment that is suitable for a number of occasions.

What is a Sari?

A sari resembles a dress, but is actually a length of fabric that is draped around the body and is free flowing. It may be pinned over the shoulder or left open to reveal the shoulder and draped over the arm instead. A blouse also known as a choli, which bares the midriff, is worn underneath the sari, and this sari blouse may have a variety of different necklines. There is also a special skirt that comes to the ankles and contains multiple pleats. This skirt somewhat resembles a petticoat and has a drawstring waist. Some skirts also have what appear to be flowing trains as well. More elaborate saris also come with their own choli material built in, which must then be taken to a tailor to create the blouse.

Casual Saris

Even though it contains elegant, flowing fabric, a sari dress is not just worn on formal occasions, as some are also perfect for everyday wear as well. Casual saris tend to be made of very lightweight fabric, and may contain sheer panels that allow the midriff to be exposed. They also tend to have simpler patterns, and may even be solid colors. Women tend to wear casual saris whenever they are shopping, running errands or visiting friends and relatives.

Wedding Saris

A wedding sari is traditional marriage attire for many Indian women. In India, red is considered a traditional color for weddings, which is why wedding saris tend to be red with gold embroidery on them. Alternatively, brides who have a traditional marriage ceremony may wear white, gold or cream-colored saris that are adorned with the same type of gold embroidery. Those planning a more modern ceremony might also wear saris that have pink, yellow or orange fabric. Wedding saris are usually made of silk; however, satin, and crepe are popular as well. Brides typically wear these dresses only during the ceremony, and change into another outfit after saying their vows.

Evening Wear Saris

Some saris are designed especially for evening wear, and are ideal for formal occasions. These garments tend to be made from silk, crepe or Georgette, which is actually a crepe fabric that has quite a dull finish. They also have sari blouse with shorter sleeves that are cut lower in the back. Evening wear saris may have elaborate details such as beadwork or embroidery, and are normally paired with bangle bracelets and matching earrings and necklaces.

What to Look For

Regardless of the occasion you are buying a sari for, it’s important to choose one that is well made. The quality of the fabric is important, as not all of them are made from durable material. To check the quality of fabric, make sure it is equally as thick near the pallu, which is the decorative end of the sari, as it is on the inside of it. You should also check gold threads to see if they are genuine by scraping them lightly and checking to see if red is visible underneath.

For a number of women, an Indian sari is a wardrobe staple they simply cannot live without. With so many options to choose from, it’s easy to see why Indian saris continue to be popular, not only in South Asia, but around the world as well.
