How to wear a shapewear under a saree?

Achieve that perfect desi diva look in 4 easy steps.

1. Pick the right size

A lot us think that picking a smaller size of shapewear can make us look much slimmer than our exact size shapewear would do. But this conception is wrong, shapewears come in specific sizes for a reason, they are designed accordingly to small, large or extra-large to contour the targeted areas of specific sizes. In fact wearing a smaller or wrong size of shapewear can make you look drab instead of looking fab. You must have often seen ugly muffin tops on wearing a way to tight jeans. A tight shapewear is exactly the same, it may create unsightly bulges and tyres making you look shapeless. This is why it is extremely important for you to pick the right size of the shapewear. Measure yourself around the fullest part of your hips and waist and use a size chart(if available) while shopping for a saree shapewear online.

2. Pick the right colour

Keeping the colour of your saree in mind, pick a shade of shapewear that is closest to your saree colour. Wearing a contrast coloured shapewear can land you in a big fashion disaster. You can shop shapewears online and pick shades from a wide range of colour palette.Colours Available

3. Wear it the right way

The skirt-like slip-on style makes it is very easy to wear a saree shapewear. One has to just simply slip into it and voila, feel the magic work. They are alternatives for traditional cotton petticoats. They can either be substituted for a petticoat or can be worn under a saree. The fabric is so soft & thin that it does not really add any bulk. These saree shapewears are designed with targeted compression to contour and smoothen your back, waist, hips and thighs making them look toned and curvy. You just need to be careful that these targeted panels hug your curves at the right places.

Saree Shapewear Vs Petticoat 

  • Bulky Vs Body-Hugging

Petticoat is the traditional inner layer to a saree. Usually petticoats are made of cotton fabric and tend look bulky under neatly tied saree. Whereas, a saree shapewear is crafted with smooth and seamless stretchable polyamide fabric that hugs your curves in all the right places.

  • Drawstring Vs Seamless Waistband

Traditional petticoats come with a drawstring which needs to be fixed every now & then, but a saree shapewear comes with a seamless waistband that fits you snugly and is strong enough to hold heavy-weight sarees.

  • Flared Structure Vs Mermaid Shape

Petticoats are usually A-line or flared which doesn’t really give a flatter shape. A saree shapewear on the other hand focuses on a mermaid shape, contouring your back, hips, waist and thighs giving you beautiful mermaid-like shape.
