The first time I used the Saree Silhouette i was worried about the material and thought it might not hold so I tied it super tight. Of course I loved the way it looked and was super shocked when I took off the saree silhouette at the end of the night. No marks on my tummy (I have a lot of belly fat and always have, so I’ve always been in pain and have had red marks on my tummy after wearing a saree). Also loved the fact that the saree silhouette acted as yummy control. So other than give you a nice shape, it is super comfy to be in (I’ve worn the silhouette as a skirt at events) and moulds gorgeously to a tummy. P.S. you don’t have to tie it super tight ladies. It’s the perfect accessory to any wardrobe!
