10 Time-Saving Tips for Quickly Draping a Saree Like a Pro

Wearing a saree quickly can be achieved with practice and a few tricks to streamline the process. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you wear a saree efficiently:

  1. Choose the Right fabric: If saree wearing is already a challenge for you, opt for a saree with a non-complicated fabric. Lighter fabrics like georgette, chiffon, or crepe are easier to drape quickly compared to heavier fabrics like pattu or cotton.

  2. Preparation: Wear a fitted blouse and a petticoat (underskirt) that matches the saree color. Ensure that the petticoat's drawstring is tight enough to hold the saree securely.

  3. Start with the Pleats: Hold the saree with the non-pallu end (the end without the decorative edge) towards your waist. Make about 6-8 pleats with the fabric, ensuring they are even and of the desired width.

  4. Tuck the Pleats: Hold the pleats together and tuck them into the waistband of the petticoat slightly to the right of your navel. Adjust the length of the pleats as needed.

  5. Wrap Around: Now, take the remaining fabric from the non-pallu end and drape it around your waist clockwise, bringing it to the front. Ensure that the bottom edge of the saree touches the floor evenly.

  6. Adjustment: Make sure the saree is wrapped snugly around your waist and secure it with a safety pin if needed.

  7. Pallu Placement: Take the decorative end of the saree (pallu) and drape it over your left shoulder from the back, allowing it to fall gracefully over your arm. Adjust the length and pleats of the pallu as desired.

  8. Secure the Pallu: Use a safety pin to secure the pallu to your blouse to prevent it from slipping.

  9. Final Touches: Check for any loose ends or uneven pleats and adjust them accordingly. Ensure that the saree is draped neatly and evenly all around.

  10. Ready to Wear Saree: However, if the above steps seem daunting and you don't want to spend your time and effort in learning how to wear a saree, opting for pre-stitched or ready-to-wear sarees can save time and effort. Ready to wear sarees eliminate the need for pleating and draping, making them an excellent option for those who want to wear a saree quickly without the hassle.
