14 Reasons why Indian Girls Hate to wear Saree

1. Cost

The cost of stylish and designer sarees starts from Rs. 2000 to Rs. 3000. Besides the cost of the saree, you have to bear a petticoat, blouse, fall, tailor, jewelry, and dry clean expenses. Also, you can’t wear the same saree on every occasion.

2. Lack of time

Draping a saree is difficult, time-consuming, and requires a lot of practice. The girls in urban India are studying or working at offices so they don’t have sufficient time to drape a saree.

3. Inconvenience

It’s hard to drive a two-wheeler or board crowded public transport while managing the pallu and pleats of the saree. There are even restrictions on the activities you do. You can’t dance, run, walk fast, hang out with friends and go to a pub/gym. Moreover, you can’t go for a pillion ride on a bike in a saree.

5. Difficult To Walk

When girls wear a saree for the first time, they find it difficult to walk. They may trip on their sari pleats and fall down on the floor. Salwar-kameez, jeans or trousers are very comfortable than a saree.

A pair of flip-flops or flats don’t go well with your saree. You need to wear at least a slight amount of heels when wearing a saree.

Saris don’t have pockets like jeans or trousers so girls have to carry a clutch or a handbag for earphones, wallet, and keys.
