- You can go for the Sarees made of light or flowy material, such as georgette, chiffon, etc
- The silk sarees also look amazing at festive time as it provides the necessary elegant look to the personality of the wearer
- If you have a heavy bust area, then you should go for the printed blouses
- In case, if your arms are flabby, then you must not go for the sleeveless blouses and should opt for quarter or full sleeved blouses
#3. Lehenga Choli
- While selecting your lehenga choli, always remember that you are not picking it up for your wedding
