a saree is a garment worn by indian women. do you know how to wear the saree? have you seen anyone or learnt it yourself? do you cover your navel or wear it below it?

hi dear i do wear a saree in fact i was working as a PRO for a hotel before i finished my education and our uniform was saree and initially it was tough and slowly my colleagues helped and i learnt..it is actually worn just below the navel so that it is comfortable but sarees are not revealing unless one wants to do so deliberately..it is a beautiful and elegant attire..

but people or rather women now a days take on saree for granted. they team it up with all the odd clothes so that it becomes all the more revealing. they should be watching their steps. anyways, thank you for the response.

Saree is my national costume.I do wear a saree.I wear slightly below my navel nothing is exposed.I really do not know who taught me or when I learnt it.But as a young girl while growing up may be around the age of 16 or 17 I started wearing a saree.I keep using it so often that in a jiffy I can get into a saree.Its looks cumbersome but actually its pretty easy once you know how to do it.Its a very graceful attire which looks very dignified.Now lots of westeners are showing interest in wearing a saree so most of the shops have these ready made sarees where one can just slip into it.

you seem to be have quite a knowledge about sarees. yes, the foreigners are trying on this attire. the problem lies that why our indian girls are doing too much of jeans and western wear. are they trying to experiment or are they trying to be over smart. smartness is good but at the expense of culture is not good. don't you think so?
