People have always found wearing costumes fascinating. This must be why quite a number of people love to hold costume parties all year round. The Indian sari is among the costumes that many find very romantic and mysterious in its sexiness. Because of the allure this piece of clothing seem to give to its wearer, there are a lot of women who wear the Indian sari even if they are not necessarily of Hindu lineage. Although the popularity of the Indian sari as a costume even in Western cultures has reached far and wide, for Indian women, the sari is another matter altogether.

In India the sari is not just a costume, it is a tradition, a way of life that signifies gracefulness among Hindu women. Most if not all Hindu women wear the Indian sari. They don on this piece of traditional Indian clothing everyday of their lives. The Indian sari gives them their identity and conveys the richness of their culture. Many find Hindu women very graceful and sexy because of the Indian sari that they always wear.

An Indian sari is really just made up of a piece of long cloth that measures five to nine yards and is worn draped to the women's bodies. The sari is traditionally wound around a woman's waist with it's other end draped over the shoulder. What makes the traditional Indian sari sexy is that it's upper garment is cut at midriff, baring the curves of a woman's body and showing the skin from below her ribcage down to her navel. This blouse is more known as the choli. There are other women though who prefers to wear their Indian sari in a modest fashion. They would go for a less revealing blouse that they would just tuck into the waist of their sari.

The Indian sari worn before by the ancient Indian women was more revealing because it was donned on bare bodies and there were even no upper garments to speak of. This is not the case though with what is now known as the traditional Indian sari worn by the more modern women. Aside from the choli or the other upper garments that other women might prefer to wear, the Indian sari now is also worn over a petticoat or what is known as pavadai in Southern India and lehnga in Northern India. This must be the Indian women's ways of conforming to the norms of the society that prohibits them from being as revealing as their sexy and voluptuous women ancestors, who had no qualms in showing their bodies.

No matter how the Indian sari is worn now, one fact still remains, the richness of the cloth that is made into a sari still indicates the deepness of a woman's pockets. An Indian sari could be of woven cotton or silk, this depending on the women wearing it. Poor Indian women usually wears saris that has a coarse woven quality and is usually made of cotton. A rich woman on the other hand wears an Indian sari in sheer silk of the finest woven quality. An Indian sari is always woven by hand though. This means that despite its quality, time and money are still spent on it to make it a piece of clothing that is not only meant as a covering for the body but also as a symbol of being an Indian woman.
