The term Bottom Wear has become a fashion phenomenon of sorts in recent times. More so, with new ideas and experiments by kitschy designers, it is Indian bottom wear that has been stealing the limelight more often than not. From the humble Salwars to the very elaborate Dhoti Pants, Indian women are freely and liberally experimenting with their bottom wear with panache.
Gone are the days when there were only two options to chose from for bottom wear when you went to the tailor-Either a salwar or a payjami. The scene is completely different now. Even the humble tailor next door will tell you at least 5 different options that he can stitch for your bottoms.
While a salwar refers to a pair of light, loose, pleated trousers, usually tapering to a tight fit around the ankles, worn by women from typically with a kameez (the two together being a salwar kameez ), A churidaar is something more contemporary in its appeal and look. A churidar is Pajamalike trousers tapering to a tight fit at the calf and ankle and usually cut long so as to gather in folds at the lower leg.
Women have for the longest time been confined to these two type of bottom wear options with their Kurtas and for some more formal occasions, it would be a Ghagra or lehnga to the rescue. A ghagra is a long full skirt, often decorated with embroidery, mirrors, or bells. They still are trending now a days but in their more modern novelties.
