Learn how to wear a saree in Mermaid Style


Basic Terms

Blouse : The Indian blouse called "choli" is the traditional attire and is usually worn with the saree or lehnga. It is essentially a low cut midriff baring blouse. It could either be sleeveless, half sleeves or full sleeves. The choli is cut to fit tight.

Petticoat : A petticoat or underskirt is an article of clothing for women; specifically an undergarment to be worn under a saree. The petticoat is a separate garment hanging from the waist. Saree petticoats usually match the color of the saree.

Pallu: The fanciest patterned end or loose end of the saree that falls on the outside so that the design can be seen.

Step by step instructions :


Methods

  • Wear a petticoat/underskirt tightly tied by a drawstring at the waist.
  • A nicely fitted blouse/top is worn before draping the saree.
  • Tuck the first & upper end of saree in the right hand side at the waistband of petticoat.
  • Take the material/saree to the back & then finally taking it to the front by completing one round & tucking it at the waist hand in hand.
  • Now,tuck the upper border part which comes just at the starting phase of palla part just for support in making pleats.
  • Bring the palla part to the front making a complete round from backside.
  • Start making pleats & then after place the palla at your right shoulder keeping the length of the palla 4� above the floor from the front side & finally fix it up with a pin.
  • We don�t make pleats in this style of draping. So, just adjust the loose parts of saree in front by spreading & balancing it around giving a plain & finished look.
  • Now, drag the last layer of border part from back to front by covering the bust area & then fixing it at the right hand side tightly with a pin along with your petticoat.
  • Now, making the border apart with the pleats put one more pin on the right shoulder for fixing it up.
  • This style of saree makes you look sexy, sensuous & slim.
