Women who are a bit heavier should buy saris, which are light like georgette, silk chignon or chiffon. For the gorgeous option they can try heavy Mysore silk sarees or silk based Kanjeevaram, which looks beautiful and one tends to look slimmer.

For shorter women they should buy saris with small borders or no borders. They should definitely avoid big borders as big borders make one look shorter. Big border are mainly for women who have a good height. For short woman they can go for self or single color it will make them look taller.

Thin women should buy saris, which are a bit fluffy like organza, cotton fabric, tissue and tussar saris. These saris give a fuller effect and give a broad look.

Avoid large prints in sarees, as it gives a gaudy and a huge look. Delicate and sober print on a sari gives a delicate and stylish look.

Dark skin color women should generally buy dark colors like maroon, green, dark pink and avoid light colors and bright colors.

Saris can be really elegant and stylish if worn properly and with right accessories.
