While many women wear a separate top or bra, the Sari can be arranged so that there is no need for any underwear which is really nice around the home or at informal gatherings.

In the Indian party scene, the Sari is making a comeback due to its versatility. In the westernised party scene, girls generally dress in their tiniest outfit’s but if they turn up to an event where it is inappropriate, they may have to leave or just feel out of place.
