    I'm looking for suggestions to buy low maintenance sarees. Something light weight and something not too flashy . Personally I like organza type sarees but they seem very transparent . I see different types of cotton like soft cotton and mulmul. Do these require same maintenance like cotton sarees ?
    Any website to buy ready made blouse ?
    This is for shipping inside India

    Thanks

    Crepe silk with designer borders are considerably light weight, flowy, low maintenance and simple yet elegant.

    :hello:Bengal cotton sarees could be given a try for warmer seasons. Light in weight but needs bit of starch and ironing for getting that elegance. See images of Kolkata celebs in cotton sarees and Bengali based movies. Just my two cents!

    Dear Op,

    If you are looking for

    pattu sarees I would recommend, these are all light weight and very low maintenance
    - Ikkat
    - Pochampally
    - Uppada
    - kuppadam

    cotton sarees: usually I wear them, hang for a day and fold them in opposite side than before and press at home itself
    - Mangalagiri/Narayanpet
    - mulmul
    - chanderi (my goto these days for easy draping)
    - sugundi (beatiful but needs maintenance)

    I choose "Benaras" soft silk also for traditional pooja gettogethers or small traditional parties they are not too light weight but looks grand with contrast blouses.
