India, a country with numerous cultures has not one but many traditional dresses. All of them are loose cotton fitting and comfortable to wear. Designs, patterns are unique to every city itself. However, it is sad to say, that the new generation choose Western over traditional. The reason is that the Indian Cotton is being replaced by satin, nylon and other itchy man made fibres and are made tight, uncomfortable to wear. The simple and pretty designs are replaced with fancy laces, dangles, ribbons etc. Also I hope that these materials are ' Made in India'

Sari is the most versatile garment ever invented.
It can be worn by women with any body shape and there is always an elegant style that will suit a particular body shape
A woman will always look elegant is a sari any there will.be no negative stereotype response based on physucal form..
I dare any one to name one garment in the world barring the kimono to match the grace of a woman wearing a saree.

And all kinds of fabrics, be THEY natural or man made are suitable of sarees. Can one say that of any other garment in the world.

We can see a lots of colors in the Indian costumes more than Black and White.
Also we can see more cultural designs and patterns which makes it special.

Are you KIDDING ME?!. India has the best costume ever. Sari's and shalwar suit's are hot as. Indian women just look so sofisticated and beautiful in them. How are all these other countries above India?

Full of decency. One will find all kind of touch in Pakistani Costumes. 4 Provinces has his own cultural costumes showing its geographical importance. Overall National dress is Shalwar Qamees.

Pakistan being a land with mix cultures which includes the nomads of the snow capped peaks, the tribal areas with their own interesting costumes, the balochi ' ajrak', Sindhi karhai, the punjabi shalwar Kameez to the royal ghararas and many more attractive varieties, thus it should be ranked higher on the list!
