How To Choose The Perfect Blouse For Your Body Type

Saree is the classic traditional Indian wear that never fails to make a woman look stunningly gorgeous. While it always adds a flavour of our traditions in a woman’s appearance, the ever-evolving fashion has also ensured that they look glamorous in this beautiful attire. And, when we talk about the fashion related to the sarees, it obviously includes the saree blouses as well.

Available in plenty of designs, these blouses contribute as much as a saree, in a woman’s look. While there are a lot of blouse designs to choose from for your different sarees, it is important to select the one that best suits your body shape. It should not only complement your saree, but also your personality. Well, if you are wondering how you can find the perfect blouse for yourself, then here are some tips for you to select one as per your body type.

#1. Top-heavy figure

It is good that you are blessed with great assets, but you too have your share of blues when it comes to choosing the right blouse type with a saree. Isn’t it? Well, you need not worry anymore. All you have to do is to get the logic right. Just avoid embellished blouses, especially the ones with heavy work on the chest area, as they will add weight to your already heavy bosoms.

Instead, go for the plain blouses that are made with lightweight fabrics, such as georgette, crepe, satin, etc. Prefer wearing monochrome blouses and avoid large prints. Lastly, avoid deep necklines and if at all you want to flaunt your glowing skin, then try doing so with the bare-back blouses.

#2. Small-busted figure

Although there are several styles that will suit you, but a blouse giving an illusion of fuller bust would be just perfect for you. And in order to do so, make sure your blouse is well-padded or has heavy embellishments in the front area. As your neck will also be quite lean, it would be a great idea to cover it up with the styles like halter neck, high neck and collar neck.

You should prefer heavier fabrics, like velvet, tussar silk, brocade, etc., for your blouse. Fortunately, you do not have to think twice before shortlisting the colours and patterns.

So, all you have to do to get a perfect blouse made for yourself is, head to the boutique and simply tell the person what style you want.

Well, it is not just the blouse, but also the saree that has to be selected as per your body type. So, here is How to Choose a Perfect Saree for Your Body Type

#4. Broad-shouldered figure

Often, women find it difficult to embrace their sculpted broad shoulders and hence, they end up making wrong fashion choices. Well, if you too have such a body type, then simply highlight your toned arms or your sexy back by baring it all. Wear broader necklines with short sleeves to smartly conceal your wide shoulders.

To avoid making your already broad shoulders look even broader, discard all the thin straps and padded blouses.

#5. Voluptuous figure

You can work your fuller body to your advantage by wearing a full-sleeved or quarter-sleeved blouse. And, as you will cover your arms and shoulders, you can bare your sexy back to create a balance and keep those eyeballs rolling!

However, avoid wearing styles, like puffed sleeves, noodle straps, halters, etc., because then your flabby arms and shoulders will hog the limelight, without even you asking for it! Also, prefer lightweight fabrics with smaller prints or light embroidery.
