Is There A Code In Wearing A Saree?

Refering to the thread in the Civ Av forum about the female Munich LH cabin crew wearing Bavarian "Dirndl" dresses during the Oktoberfest period, there was a post about the significance of the location of the apron knot (on the right "I´m married, engaged, taken", on the left "I´m still available if you ask nicely").

Last week, while having a coffee in our airport terminal coffee shop, I saw a young Indian woman (maybe in her mid 20s), who almost made my eyes fall out, so gorgeous was she in her saree.
I really like Indian women wearing this kind of dress, it looks very feminine.

Now I wonder if there also exist little telltales, like with the Bavarian dress mentioned above (other German regional traditional dresses often have similar sign, e.g. the colour of a ribbon etc., to tell if the woman is still free or already married / in a permanent relationship) with the saree.

Also, do there exist regional differences in India how a saree is worn?

Nope! No such indications on a saree or any restrictions as to if married/unmarried women can wear it. However, it is more common in married women or in a formal situation.

There are slight differences in the way it is worn and of course the type of material but the basics are the same.



Life only makes sense when you look at it backwards.
