    How to buy Salwar Kameez Online?


    The salwar kameez is a traditional Indian dress that can trace back its history the Islamic Turko-Iranian and later to the rule of the Mughals. It is a popular female attire in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    Over a period of several years the salwar kameez has evolved into a variety of different cuts and styles. In case you want to purchase salwar kameezes online, the most important thing is to first figure out the style and trend which you want to portray.

    Indo-western salwar kameez – Over time the image of salwar kameezes has evolved into a more western type dress. While the basic layout of the dress remains traditional, the cuts and sillhouttes have become western in concept. The resultant dress will have a kurta of shorter length, deeper neckline and in many cases no sleeves.

    Casual Salwar Kameez – Because of the fact that salwar kameezes are very comfortable, they are the most preferred day to day wear dress. Especially during summers when temperatures are very high. Due to the easy availability of cotton in the Indian sub continent, most casual salwar kameezes are made of cotton.

    Party or Wedding Salwar kameez – These are heavily embroidered salwar kameez sets with sequins and stone works added to enhance their looks. Usually soft flowing fabrics like georgette, chiffon and silk are used to make these salwar kameezes. Designers in India and Pakistan are experimenting with styles in wedding salwar kameezes due to its high demand and high price.

    Printed salwar kameez – Printed salwar kameez sets are machine or digitally printed to get fabulous designs on plain fabric. The designs range from flowers to polka dots, geometrical prints and lot others. Printed salwar kameezes are normally worn on a daily basis as they usually are cheap. The designs and prints keep changing according to current trends and fashion.

    Churidar kurta – The churidar kurta is a close fitting salwar suit which is tailored to fit the wearer exactly. The churidar is tight fitting and falls in folds near the ankle. The kurta is collarless and falls below the waist region. The kameez in a churidar kurta is fitted and therefore it usually has a slit up to the waist to allow easy movement. Churidar kurta looks very good on slim woman as it highlights the figure.

    To order your salwar kameez online, you need to decide on the fabric, style, cut and designs. Another thing that needs to be determined is whether or not you want heavy embellishments. On online shopping sites you can often get a good bargain and heavy discounts. Determine your body size so that you don’t end up with a salwar set that is larger than your size. Color is another criterion that needs to be taken care of. Once these factors are determined, you should have no trouble buying a salwar kameez online. Most online sites offer home delivery which ensures that you can shop from the comfort of your home.

    Hello Jaya, I also bought few stuffs from Sareez and they are very good indeed. So, I thought why not write an article on online shopping. Now days lots of online shopping portals are there but choosing the best is very difficult. :thumbsup

    I have bought several SK from utsavsarees. All but one was perfect; the bad one had a kameez that the inner (stitched to the kameez) was longer than the outer! I emailed and they remade the kameez and it is good now.

    Actually, I have bought several items from different online merchants but I think the main problem is stitching and not the quality of the fabric. Its always better to check the background of the merchant first like whether they are in the manufacturing industries or not. Now days, several IT companies opening these kind of online shops without any prior knowledge of Indian Ethnic Wear manufacturing and the result is obvious.
