A trendy trick is to wear a body suit as a blouse if you are heavier on the top it gives you an option to wear a shaper inside and looks unique.

No matter what kind of sari you decide to wear, you can always change the style by adding a belt to it.

It not only makes you look super trendy, but accentuate the waist line and make you look slimmer.
