    Hi,

    I want to buy a silk saree for myself on my sister's wedding. I will be doing my saree shopping in Coimbatore. I am on a little heavy side and want a saree that is rich and makes me look thin .Bugdet is not a issue. Please help

    Regards
    Vidya

    Hi,
    Avoid heavy work sarees in pattu & other material.
    self design pattu sarees, simple work sarees will look better.

    u can go for brasso,banaras sarees also, fabric itself looks rich.
    there r so many models in brasso & banaras sarees. 1000rs to 10,000 Rs. & above
    banaras 2000 & above.

    avoid horizantal half & half design/ prints / ,colors shade sarees.

    vertical half & half designs,/ prints,/ color shade sarees, will suit u.

    If I get more ideas, I will post later

    There are light weight silk sarees and soft silk sarees which are very light as the name suggests which will not show you fluffy.

    I too agree with Ami. Mysore silk drapes well and is not too light. A light weight sari will fluff and not drape too well. Also stitch sari fall for all sarees including silks .

    Happy shopping.

    I agree with mysore silk..but do you get grand sarees equivalent to silk sarees in this variety? I doubt!!

    Brasso and Tissue are simple and elegant

    Ofcourse Chindhu, try out Nalli in pondi bazar. They have wide variety in mysore silk.
    With stones, contrast borders etc. I have a peacock blue one with dark maroon border + stone works on border and near by pallu.
    It looks so grant, I will try posting the picture here if possible.
    It costed abt 3.6k.

    Thanks a lot for your valuable suggestions. I now have a good idea of what type of sarees to search for.
