While wearing a saree, a petticoat is an important element of the whole assembly. A petticoat is an under layering that provides support to the saree and holds it in place. However, with time, even petticoats got a sexy dupe and that came to be known as shapewear petticoats. However, let’s see which one is better with some factors kept in mind.

Shapewear Vs Traditional Petticoats

Ease in Walk

If you are searching for a petticoat that is easy to walk in, go for the traditional ones as the shapewear petticoats are really tight from below. Shapewear petticoats are thus not comfortable to walk in or even while sitting on the floor.

Drawstring for size adjustments

It is mostly absent from the shapewear petticoats. This makes it unreliable for sarees that have really heavy embroidery but tucking lighter sarees is easy. However, normal petticoats do have drawstrings in them that help to adjust your waist size and also is more trustable when you are wearing a saree that has some weight in it.

Rashes

Rashes are common in plus-size women when they wear shapewear petticoats. Normal petticoats are somehow better than shapewear petticoats as long as getting rashes is concerned.

Body Shape

If your figure is something that you are only concerned with and comfort is not an issue or if you have tried and found shapewear comfortable, you can go for Shapewear petticoats for that ultra-feminine shape while wearing a saree.
