No low waist saree

The only reason to wear a low waist saree is to flaunt your midriff. But if your tummy is your problem area then avoid low waist saree as it will bare your hanging tummy which doesn’t look much flattering.

Less number of pleats

If you have a flabby tummy then you must make minimum number of pleats possible. A greater number of pleats will puff up your saree when you tuck it in and will put the focus on your tummy region.

Avoid traditional fabrics

If you have belly fat and you are opting for sarees made of traditional fabrics like tant, banarasi or other fabrics then it will look unflattering on your body. When you tuck in the pleats of such saree it will prove to be a bit difficult. Also it will puff up a bit in the tummy region and highlight your tummy.

If it is necessary to wear sarees made of traditional fabrics then adjust the pleats such that they do not fall at one place only. Also, do not make too many pleats.

Avoid saree with broad border

Broad borders in a saree accentuate a woman’s curves. So, if you don't want to show off your tummy region then opt for dark saree with subtle border or saree with no border at all. Borderless saree just flows along and prevents you from looking voluminous.

Saree with long blouse
