4: Underskirts:

Avoid cotton underskirts instead of that go for fine satin underskirts. Avoid buying a ready-made petticoat stich a fish cut petticoat that will help you in avoiding any crease while wearing a saree. Also the underskirt should be tied firmly with a drawstring. Because, as you start tucking saree it starts getting loose therefore tie your underskirt as firmly as you can. Also take care of the length of your underskirt, it should be stitched to the floor length also keep in mind that you have to carry it with heels.

5: Blouse:

The first thing to look for is a perfect fit blouse any misfit spoils the whole look of saree. If your blouse is too tight, then your skin may bulge out. Go for slim fitted full sleeves or quarter sleeves. Try to use sheer fabrics for sleeves as heavy fabric full sleeve blouses may give your hands a fuller look which you don’t require. While choosing a neck design don’t go for collared neck or halter neck as it will make you look more bustier. Try deep neckline blouses.

No doubt there are thousands of draping styles, but the traditional draping style is the best one for heavy figures. Avoid Bollywood style of draping as these styles are only meant for the well toned figure. Tuck the saree just below the navel neither go too high or too low.

9: Perfect pleats:

Avoid too many pleats. You need to be very specific with your pleats go for six equal pleats each of 6 inch width. This will give a neat look and as these pleats are tucked to the left side of the navel straight at the front anything messy will spoil the look.

10: Pinning it right:

Altogether, you need three safety pins to tame your saree right. A less number than this can make you worry about your saree and using more pins can bring your saree to a risk of wear and tear. Now the question is where to pin it. Firstly, you need to divide your saree into two parts, one for Pallu and the other part for pleats. Pin that topmost part of the saree where your pleats end and Pallu starts. Then use the other two pins to fix your pleats and to fix your Pallu.
