SHopping, Style and Us: India's Best Shopping, Style and Self-Help Blog - 5 Thoughts Girls Face While Wearing a Saree FOr The First Time!

If you are wearing a saree for the first time, you know the struggle to fold the pleats right is real. The fact that you can stumble on its edge any time, efforts to pin the saree neatly at all the right places is massive. Probably that's why Women have a strange love-hate relationship with sarees. But low- key, we can’t have enough of this beautiful ethnic ensemble.  After all, how many outfits can work on our body, enhance the curves, make us look every bit feminine and feel beautiful inside out!? However, making saree a wardrobe norm may look easy but it sure isn’t, when you are choosing and wearing the saree for the first time.

We bet you can totally relate to these thoughts that come to one's mind of a saree virgin, especially if they're a raw silk saree virgin!

1)    Aur Kitna pin! (How many safety pins?)

The tutorial you watched on YouTube mentioned only 3 pins. Here, you have used like a dozen of them. But that isn't enough for a first timer like you!  You think… "What if my pleats or pallu go unpinned right before my - um ex? Is it too late to go back to my favourite pair of jeans?"

2)    How do I figure it out?

Yeah, the length of the pallu, the level of it and the jewellery. It is like decoding Nolan’s Inception. There is a chance that you might get it in a screening or two but a saree seems to be a tough nut to crack without your mother or a friend who is pro at it. So, without an expert hand, you think - "have I done it right? Is my pallu too short or too long? Do my pleats go inwards or outwards?"

3)    What on the Earth made me wear a saree?

When you could have just slid into a pair of cargo, a little black dress or even a kurta- why, why did you go for a saree? Even a saree shopping? 

4)    How do you pee?

You finally have the pleats and pallu all-set but your bladder has chosen to act. So, do you pee or not? Or do you hit the search engine to find out how do you pee while wearing a saree? What do you do? You head to the bathroom, relieve yourself. Now, you are fretting over the pleats and length of the saree a hundred times before you exit the loo.

5)    That belly button!

"To show it or not?" is a struggle that we all have been through. You think- former makes it a 'too-much' and the latter makes it 'not-enough-to-look-like-a-diva'.

The bonus!

The most important thing is to feel comfortable when you wear a saree. Practice. Also, choose the right one for you - the colour, the print, the blouse etc. Don’t feel hard-pressed to stick to the fashion norms that not necessarily define you, but create a trend of your own. 

And get ready to rock the ethnic avatar.
