  • Chances of wardrobe malfunction are subtly high
  • Coming to the point, make sure that the petticoat you put on is tight enough to be tucked but not too loose.
  • To check, insert two fingers through the space between your navel and the petticoat.
  • If it is too easy to slid the fingers, tighten the petticoat slightly, if fingers don’t go in at all, loosen up, else you’re good to go.

2. Put on your blouse and then proceed to the next step.

3. Tucking Pleats:

  • Start with the plain end of your saree and tuck it in from the center until you make a whole circle and cover the petticoat entirely with the saree cloth.
  • Now, make a few pleats as you hold the ones made firmly. Tuck in the pleats towards the right side, just below your belly button.

4. Adjusting Pleats:

  • Keep the process on and tuck the sari edge finally when done into the petticoat.
  • Repeat cycle and since most silk sarees have decorative hems, make sure when you’re tucking in the pleats, the hem is facing outwards, and don’t pull the saree too high up the ground, since that makes it less appealing to the eye.
  • If you plan on wearing heels, do put them on when you are adjusting the length of the saree.
  • It is easier to wear silk sarees that way.
  • Nobody wants to fall face down to the ground when wearing a gorgeous looking saree.

5. Getting The Pallu Right:

  • Grab on the decorated end of the saree you are wearing- it goes by the name of ‘pallu’ or ‘aanchal’ as you know it.
  • Grab the pallu and put it under your right arms and bring it towards your left shoulder.

6. Pinning It Up:

  • Pleat the pallu neatly and make sure the ironing of the silk saree isn’t disturbed.
  • Pin up the pleats on your blouse on your left shoulder and keep fixing the pleats so there is absolutely no space for imperfection in your look.

7. Finishing Touches:

  • The final step is to cover your chest area and stomach with the pinned pleats neatly.
  • Again, the point to make sure of here would be to take care of the decorative border.
  • The border should be visible when you are done with the saree.
  • So the pin up should be done in a fashion that it balances out both the covering bit as well as the flaunting of the design which makes you slim and tall.
