    Shalwar sawal



    Does anyone know why shalwars are made so baggy? You know what I mean Ė youíve all seen these things laid out flat. An entire family could fit inside one if you open the naala right? I mean, they are w-I-d-e. Whatís the reason for that do you suppose? Firstly I thought it made sense, because it would be a one size fits all, but that canít be right because the darziís still take the naapÖunless they take the naap for other reasons known only to themselves.

    It canít be comfort because if you took a metre of material out of the shalwar, it would still be plenty loose enough. Style? Canít be because you canít see all that material bunched up under the kameez. The only reason I can think of is that aunties like their salan and roti, so when waistlines expand thereís no worries about clothes still fitting. This seems both practical and economical, but how many rotis would they have to eat to fill out one of those things?

    Any ideas? (about the width of shalwar, not how many rotis)

                    yaaro, keep it decent, this is a serious question.

                    One other consideration comes to mind. Maybe it's something to do with maternity? Adjustable shalwar is very useful during 9 months term, kya khayal hai?

                    But then why are men's shalwar's the same size

                        k Xtreme if u want a serious answer .... its all about gettin 'the look'. U see, although salwars are made big, once u put a nara in them all u get to see is this wavy/creasy sort of design. Hard 2 explain but u'd know what i meant if u were a girl.

                        Plus having them so big makes it easier for us to move around and doesn't show the shape of our legs so Islamically they're much better than those tight tight tight salwars that 'kutte walis' wear in Indian films.
                        So, verily, with every difficulty, there is relief:

                          I ones we wear in India are not so big. Actually we have belt on the top. The material is gathered in belt 8-10 inch wide belt and gathered like it is on a dress or skirt. This is done so that they don't appear so bulky at the waist.

                            Sadi:

                            Plus having them so big makes it easier for us to move around and doesn't show the shape of our legs
                            That can't be right can it? Why does it have to be so wide at the waist if the aim is to hide shape of the legs?

                            You can get a baggy pair of levis which will hide shape of the legs, but the waist will be normal size not tent proportions.

                            once u put a nara in them all u get to see is this wavy/creasy sort of design. Hard 2 explain but u'd know what i meant if u were a girl.
                            What do you think happens to the shalwars men wear, they fill up with hot air?

                            Tip for guys: for the Aladdin look, try wearing a shalwar with a waistcoat and no kameez. But don't blame me if you get unusual propositions from strangers.

                              Levis don't hide the shape of ur legs and they're an arse 2 move around in. Infact most trousers (other than combats) do show the shape of ur leg to some degree whereas salwars are so big that finding a leg in a salwar is like looking for a needle in a haystack. In order to get the leggy bit baggy, the waisty bit needs 2 be baggy 2.

                              And as for mens salwars - they're the same as womens. They 2 need the 'wavy' look. Its all about tradition mate. Who cares.
                              So, verily, with every difficulty, there is relief:
