Different Types of Saree Draping Styles In India :

The Sari from the Indian Culture is probably one of the oldest pieces of clothing still worn today. It is a very long piece of cloth which measures about 1m by 5.5m. ( One size fits all!). All women loved to be noticed. Whether it is a party or a wedding, a social gathering is an occasion to get complimented on your dress. Indian women, however, have a secret trick. They know that the easiest and surest way to get all eyes on you is to drape 5 yards of that exquisite creation known as the Indian Saree or Sari. It's something you can never go wrong with as it flatters most figures.

What is wonderful about the Sari is that it is not a costume reserved only for traditional festivals or ceremonies. Irrespective of caste, religion or customs, the sari is still worn by Indian ladies going about their daily chores.

Traditional Style Drape

This is the most common way of wearing the saree. The saree is draped once around the waist and pleats are formed and tucked in the middle facing left. The remaining cloth is slung over the left shoulder to cover the lady's torso. Often the pallu, as the top part is called could be pleated and pinned neatly to the wearer's shoulder or could be left open for the lady to manage.

Bengali Style Drape

Draped without pleats, it is wrapped around the waist and drawn back to the right side and the pallu is slung over the left shoulder. Once again pulled up from under the right arm, it is slung over the left shoulder. Often an ornate key bunch is added to the edge to complete this very feminine and elegant drape.

Gujarati Style
This way of draping the saree is not only adopted in Gujarat but many northern states like UP, MP Rajasthan and Bihar also adopt this style. In this way of wearing the saree, the pleats face right instead of left. The pallu also comes from the back to the front from the right side. The edge of the pallu is tucked at the back securing it properly. This style of draping works very well when you want to display an elaborate border.

Maharashtra Draping Style
Using nine yards, this style is adopted by the older and more conservative women. The saree apes a dhoti style somewhat, with some of the fabric tucked between the legs to divide them. Worn without a petticoat underneath, this saree is rarely seen nowadays except on festive occasions. In this version of the saree, the pallu drapes the shoulder or is used to cover the head.
