If you have a pear shaped body and want to look slim in a saree, opt for fabrics that are lightweight. The saree fabric should be thin enough for not adding extra weight to your body. Choose fabrics like georgette, chiffon and crepe as they are extremely lightweight. If you are healthy, you must avoid wearing silk, kanjivaram and tissue sarees. On a regular basis, you can opt for light cotton and chiffon sarees.

#2 Border

Want to look slimmer? Avoid wearing sarees with broad border. Sarees with thin or no border are apt for plus sized women as they create an illusion of a slim and a tall woman.

#3 Draping technique

Besides the fabric, the technique of draping also plays a major role of making you look slim. Make sure you drape your saree tightly. It should not be left loose from anywhere. Make lesser number of pleats to get that tight look. The more the pleats, the healthier you will look. Having lesser pleats will help you hide your unwanted curves.

#4 Colours

Colours play a pivotal role in making you look slim. If you want to look slimmer, opt for darker shades as they hide all your curves as lighter shades amplify your curvaceous body making you look healthy and overweight

#5 Prints

This one is especially important for the plus sized woman. If you have a healthy body, stay away from large prints at all costs. Large prints tend to scatter on your healthy body making you look broad. Women with heavier bodies must opt for tiny prints or motifs. Make sure you opt for small floral patterns as they will make you look slim.
