Latest Churidar Designs- Trends for
Comfort and Style

Latest Churidar Designs PatternsIndian women have accepted salwar kameez for various reasons. The first among these reasons is the comfort granted by traditional salwar suits. However, there are certain limitations with the traditional salwar- just with the lower garment meant for covering legs. Plus size women do not see it as figure friendly. The flare of a salwar make them look more bigger in size. Some other fashion conscious women do not find the flaring salwar trendy.

As such, churidar designs - the tighter version of salwar which resembles tight narrow pants- have become the favorite clothing of many women, especially of the young girls. Before proceeding to know the latest trends and design patterns of churidars, let's see why the churidars are preferred over salwars by the young women of India.

Salwar v/s Churidar

A salwar is, no doubt, the most comfortable women clothing in India. The reasons being the amount of fabric used in it ( patiala salwar suit being the extreme example) and the security it provides (by not shifting here and there and also by not revealing any body parts). However, many women think that salwar is not stylish or trendy. It doesn't present the wearer as a fashionable personality perhaps due to the 'so called lousy look' that it gives. These women like to wear churidar for its stylish look. When worn, churidar at once gives a crispy appearance to the wearer's personality. However, due to the tight fitting, churidar is not as comfortable as a salwar is. Then what do these ladies do?


Traditional Churidar Design

Traditionally, women of India have always preferred custom or tailored salwar kameez. However, most of the time, the tailored churidars do not give the desired look- they are either very loose or very tight. If loose, they mar the whole appearance of the salwar suit set. If tight, they become more uncomfortable to wear. Most of the women have to bend down or sit on ground while following certain Indian traditions- like in temples or while touching feet of elderly persons. So, when a new bride bends to touch feet of her father or mother-in-law wearing a bridal churidar kurta, she has to experience a whole lot of difficulties. These difficulties have gradually taught the Indian woman to accept the ready to wear designer churidar kurta.
