Sari Saheli- Another great invention!

I came across this device as I researched for one of my previous hubs: How to put on a Sari. As all you Indian women know, putting on a sari can be very difficult-- especially if you are not in practice.

It is a time consuming task and often requires several attempts to perfect the look.

The Sari Saheli could not be any simplier to use. The Saheli has several plastic sheets into which each pleat is created and held in place. It will not tear up your sari or create knicks in the threads. Simply place a clip or pin after sari pleats are complete and then tuck in.

Need to pleat your pallu next? Simply attach the Sari Saheli to the end of the pallu, pleat and then throw it over your shoulder.

Maybe now I won't have to go running to my Mom or a nearby Auntie to fix the pleats on my Sari!

I had no clue that there was such a thing called saree saheli. I have been wearing sarees since forever and still now require mom's help to properdy do a saree. This seems to be quite helpful. Thanks a lot!!

They are incredibly challenging to put on, especially if you wear them infrequently. I only wear them on special occasions and have always needed assistance in the past. It's almost embarrassing to get help with dressing as an adult!

Thanks for visiting TTombs08!
