A blouse which needs to be tight-fitting and whose color needs to be chosen keeping the look of the saree in mind, can be short sleeved or sleeveless, with a variety of necklines. The blouse ends just below the bust.
 
Blouses also known as cholis are available in various designes and styles. Saree is worn with a matching or a contrasting blouse which give a very elegant look to a saree. Sleevless, deep neck, haulter neck, bell sleeves blouses are available to give the best look to the beautiful Indian sarees.
 
An Indian blouse most commonly refers to a woman's shirt. Blouses are often made of cotton or silk cloth and may or may not include a collar and sleeves. They are generally more tailored than simple knit tops, and may contain "feminine" details such as ruffles or embroidered decorations.
 
Blouses have buttons reversed from that of a men's shirts. That is, the buttons are normally on the wearer's left-hand and the buttonholes are on the right. The reasons for this are unclear, however. Some suggest this custom was introduced by launderers so they could distinguish between women's and men's shirts, and could thus charge more for women's blouses, supposing women are more gullible and submissive. Another theory suggests that the tradition arose in the middle ages when one manner of manifesting wealth was by the number of buttons one wore.
 
Now days knot blouses are also very much in vogue. A blouse reveals more than it conceals. Its cut, color and the way it is worn would tell you about whether the woman is casual, carefree, bold, reticent or orthodox. It is a dead giveaway of a woman’s attitude and personality. Little wonder, blouses are no longer treated as mere decorative garments. As designer Suneet Verma puts it: "It is a statement of a woman’s sense of freedom, an expression of female vanity and, most importantly, a celebration of feminine grace."
 
Its maintenance
 

Lengha Cholis are one of the most precious outfits in a women's wardrobe. Though purchasing is a big deal, maintaining a lehenga sets is something challengeable. Ghagara choli are elegant. Today, owning a silk ghagara choli meant not only the initial price of the garment but also the cost of dry cleaning. All silk lenghas sarees are washable. Most silk ghagara choli can be hand washed. Technically, silk ghagara choli does not shrink like other fabric lehangas.
Sareesboutique Sarees the biggest Indian lengha cholis online store for shopping ghagara choli, lenghas sarees, lehenga sets gives some lehenga maintenance tips.
If the fabric is not tightly woven, washing a silk ghagara choli with tighten up the weave....thus, lighter weights of silk can be improved by washing as it will tighten up the weave. A tightly woven silk ghagara choli will not "shrink" or will "shrink" a lot less. Silk ghagara choli, however, can shrink if the fabric has not been washed prior to garment construction. When washing silk ghagara choli, do not wring but roll in a towel. Silk ghagara choli dries quickly but should not be put in an automatic dryer unless the fabric is dried in an automatic dryer prior to garment construction. A good shampoo works well on silk ghagara choli. It will remove oil and revitalize your silk ghagara choli.

Chlorine bleach can be used to restore white lenghas sarees to a clear white but this bleach may yellow chemically finished cotton lenghas sarees or remove color in dyed cottons costumes. Boiling and sterilizing temperatures can also be used on cotton lenghas sarees without disintegration. Cotton can also be ironed at relatively high temperatures, stands up to abrasion and wears well.

 Highly absorbent and a good conductor of heat, linen fabric is cool in lehengas. However, constant creasing in the same place in sharp folds will tend to break the linen threads. This wear can show up in collars, hems, and any area that is iron creased during the laundering. Linen fabric lehngas has poor elasticity and does not spring back readily.

Embroidered lenghas sarees can be washed at home. Avoid the use of brush while washing lenghas sarees. Don't hesitate in going to laundry. Always keep repellant tablets in clothes.

 

History

 

The study of the people of West Bengal is incomplete without the knowledge of costumes and ornaments. The costumes of the present have the reflections of the costumes of the past. Clothes express one’s personality and distinguish people of different places from each other. Both males and females dress in the customary dresses fully influenced by climate, economy, status and the profession. The traditional dresses being ‘potia’, ‘dhoti’, ‘banda’, ‘angrakha’, ‘bugatari’, ‘pachewara’, ‘khol’, dhabla’, gaghra choi amongst Hindus; and ‘tilak’, ‘burga’, ‘achkan’ mongst Muslims, which are fast changing now with ‘bushirt’, ‘salwar’ and ‘skirts’, lehenga, saris and pants accordingly.
Turban, the head dress of Rajasthani men, is a differential pattern, of each geographical region designed to suit terrain and climatic influence. All over West Bengal, the ‘bandhni’, the tie-and-dye sari and turban reign supreme.
The common dress of the women constitutes (i) sari or ‘odhani’, (ii) ‘kanchli’ or ‘kunchuki’ or ‘choli’ (iii) ‘ghagara’ or ‘ghaghri’ or ‘lenghas’ elegant lehenga. Besides, the women of high status and ranks wear ‘dupatta’ and ‘patka’.

The use of chappals or sandals or ‘jutees’ is also common but ladies of high families use coloured sandals studded with gold threads and stars. The standard design is a four-piece dress which includes the ‘ghagra’ (skirt), the ‘odhni’ (head cloth), the ‘kurti’ (a short blouse) and the ‘kanchi’ (a long, loose blouse).
The oldest dress of Gujaratis is chaniya choli, very similar to lehnga choli. Women in villages of put on 'chaniyo' the coloured petticoat often embroidered with 'abhala' or glass pieces, a similarly embroidered blouse or bodice called as 'choli' or 'polku' along with 'odhani', a coloured piece of coarse cloth covering the body and the head. Elderly males of higher classes put on 'dhoti' (waist cloth) and 'kafani' or 'peharan' (shirt).
Uttar Pradesh is a huge state with immense diversity in its culture, people and region. The costumes worn by the people are basically guided by geographical considerations.

For the women, sari is the basic and the most graceful form of dress. The saree is draped in different styles in the cities and in the villages of the hills. Salwar suit, lehngas, shararas, and gararas, the flairy parallel trouser-like dress, worn over long kurtas are also popular in the state, especially among the Muslim women.
