How to wear chiffon saree to look slim?

Hello everyone,

I'm attending a family wedding next month and I've decided to wear a chiffon saree. However, I'm a little concerned about how it will look on me as I'm not very slim. I really love chiffon sarees and I want to wear it confidently without feeling self-conscious about my body shape.

Can anyone suggest some tips on how to wear a chiffon saree to look slim? Should I choose a particular color or style? What kind of blouse would complement it the best? Any advice on the type of jewelry I should wear with it would be appreciated too.

Thank you in advance!

Hello everyone,

I can totally relate to the concern about looking slim while wearing a chiffon saree. Here are a few tips that have helped me when I wear this beautiful material.

One of the most important things to keep in mind is the drape of the saree. The way you drape it can either enhance your curves or hide them. Try to drape your chiffon saree in such a way that it hugs your body at the right places but doesn't create any bulges. You can wrap the saree tightly around your waist and then let the remaining fabric flow naturally.

Another thing you should keep in mind is the fabric of the blouse. While chiffon sarees are lightweight, they still need a blouse with adequate support. I suggest choosing a blouse that is made of sturdier fabrics so that it doesn't cling to your body's curves. It is better to avoid using fabrics like cotton or silk as your saree blouse since they can be thick and add volume.

As far as colors go, dark shades always work well in terms of looking slim. I recommend colors like dark green, navy blue, and burgundy which will accentuate your body shape and make you look slimmer.

Lastly, accessorizing the saree the right way can make all the difference. If you want to make your saree look more traditional, opt for classic gold jewelry or Kundan jewelry. For a modern look, try out silver, stone-studded or metallic jewelry.

I hope these tips I've shared help you in looking slim and beautiful in your chiffon saree.


Hi there,

I absolutely love wearing chiffon sarees, and I've found that there are a few things you can do to look your best in them. Here are some tips that I've found to be helpful:

1. Choose the right style: When wearing a chiffon saree, I've found that it's best to choose a style that has minimal embellishments or embroidery. This helps to create a sleek and slimming effect.

2. Opt for darker colors: Darker colors tend to be more slimming, so I would suggest choosing a dark-colored chiffon saree. Black, navy, or deep shades of red or green are great options.

3. Drape it appropriately: When draping your chiffon saree, try to keep the pleats in the front as minimal as possible. This will help to create a sleeker silhouette. Also, avoid making the pallu too voluminous, as this can add unnecessary bulk.

4. Wear the right blouse: Choose a blouse that complements your body shape. If you're looking to create a slimming effect, I would suggest opting for a blouse that fits well without adding any extra bulk.

5. Accessorize with care: Keep your jewelry and accessories minimal. A simple pair of earrings and a bracelet or bangle will do. You can also add a slim belt to your saree to create a more defined waistline.

I hope these tips help you to feel confident and beautiful in your chiffon saree!


Hi everyone,

I completely understand where you're coming from. As someone who used to be self-conscious about wearing chiffon sarees, I've found a few things that have helped me feel confident and look great in them.

Firstly, I would suggest paying attention to the fit of your blouse. A well-fitted blouse can make all the difference in how your overall look comes together. Make sure your blouse is tailored to your specific body type, and consider trying on a few different styles to find the one that complements your shape the best.

Secondly, I would recommend choosing a saree that has a simple border or no border at all. Borders can sometimes add unnecessary bulk and create an unflattering silhouette. Instead, focus on finding a saree that is lightweight and drapes beautifully.

Regarding the draping style, make sure that the saree is draped all along the curves of your body, and not pulled tight over your hips to prevent emphasizing your curves.

Lastly, remember to accessorize sparingly. A pair of statement earrings or a simple bracelet can be all the jewelry you need to complete your look. Avoid layering on too many accessories, though, as this can overwhelm the simplicity of the chiffon saree.

I hope these tips are helpful and that you feel confident and beautiful in your chiffon saree. Go out there and rock it!


Hi everyone,

I understand the struggle of looking slim in a chiffon saree, and as a woman who loves this particular saree material, here are some tips that have worked for me.

Firstly, choose a chiffon saree that has a smaller print or is solid colored. Both of these options work really well in making you look slim. If you decide to go for a smaller print, make sure you don't go for something too busy as that can detract from the overall look.

Secondly, opt for a well-tailored blouse. Since the saree material is light, the blouse can add bulk, which defeats the purpose of looking slim. Additionally, a blouse that is too tight can give bulges in areas that you don't want. If you have a large frame, go for a blouse with three-quarter sleeves or opt for a full-sleeved blouse if you have a heavier upper arm.

Thirdly, when it comes to draping the saree, make sure that one side of the pallu is longer than the other, and that it falls diagonally over the body instead of straight down. This helps to create a slimming effect on your top and bottom halves.

Lastly, when it comes to accessories, keep them minimalistic as others have already mentioned. Opt for smaller pieces like delicate stud earrings or a simple cuff bracelet. A small pendant necklace would also work nicely.

All in all, combining all these tips will help you achieve that slimming effect you're looking for. With a well-chosen chiffon saree, minimalistic accessories, and a well-tailored blouse, you will undoubtedly feel confident and beautiful in your attire.
