Indian women are primarily known for their modest style of dressing. However, until the early ‘90s, it was not common for women to wear blouses. The idea was coined by the foreign invaders, as per their culture, women wore blouses or shirts with skirts. This was instantly welcomed by the Indian women, who found it comfortable.
The blouse that is probably Britain’s longest export to India has over the centuries gained such great indigenous appeal that it is considered part of tradition itself.
A blouse also added an aesthetic appeal to their bodies and made them look decent. Gradually, wearing a sari with a blouse has become classic Indian wear.
Features of Blouse:
- The length of the sleeves, the depth of the back and width of the shoulder are three main parts to be considered for getting the right fit.
- Blouses usually come in styles such as front open, back open and side open designs.
- They come in simple, basic patterns to heavily embellished designs.
How To Choose The Perfect Blouse For Your Body Type?
Depending on your bust size you must select a blouse type for yourself.
Heavy Busted: Do not go for heavy patterns or embellishments in front of the blouse to avoid unwanted attention.
Small Busted: For those who have a small bust, you can experiment with different types to add volume.
Broad Shoulders: High necks are a complete no-no, as they can make you look even bigger than you are. Tiny sleeves will be perfect.
Heavy arms: Go for long sleeves to cover up those heavy arms and give you a slimmer look.
