Thread: Help with Sarees

    Default Help with Sarees

    Anbu Thozhiyare,
    I need help in selecting a saree. No, not yet This is for my paati for her 50th wedding anniversary. She is in her late 60s and I am at a loss here not knowing what type of saree to choose for an elderly woman (as if I am good in finding one for a younger woman)

    Any pointers/directions will be very helpful and highly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Silix

    Old women usually prefer light colours

    Second in TN pattis prefer color in this order:
    Yellow, blue,grey, green,brown

    Ask u r patti she will be having atleast 10 different sarees with yellow colour with different designs....


    Designs should be kept so small...

    These are some tips i use when i select a saree for my Patti...

    Thatha no worries: white and white

    my paat's normally prefer the simplest material with much less work...

    and ofcourse she do wear that pattu saree,but the jari will be very thin.

    how bout cotton sarees? ... not the cheap ones of course ... my periaamma(she is a patti herself) wears those... even pattu sari ok but not with lots of jarigai n stuff like the others mentioned

    even those softer type sarees r good there r heaps now.. doesnt look too modern n very comfortable to be worn by elderly women

    Thanks lovely people for your tips and suggestions. 2 days on the net and I already have searched a dozen websites,a few hundred sarees and almost a hundred good looking models

    Most T Nagar saree websites, (Pothys, Kumarans, Nalli, Chennai, RMKV) dont have a good collection online/have online shopping. Chennaibazaar and a few other saree sites like tulsi, have some nice sarees but way too costly. Still searching....
