Salwar vs Churidar
 
Salwar and Churidar are common dresses that are worn by the women on the Indian subcontinent. Churidar is a modern design and it can be said that Salwar paved the way for it.

When comparing the two, the churidar is considered to be more artificial than salwar. With the creation of the churidar, one can see a transformation from the traditional to the modern.

Churidar is designed to be tightly fitted from the knee down and looser from knee up. The churidar looks like leggings. On the other hand, Salwar is considered to be a loose pajama-like dress.

Another difference that can be seen between Salwar and Churidar is that the latter is longer. The ends have to be crinkled to fit in at the ankles. The creases that develop when the churidar is tucked in the ankles resemble bangles or churis and thus the name churidar.

There are different churidar and salwar styles available. When comparing the popularity, the churidar is preferred to the salwar.

  1. I am 21 year old girl doing my postgraduation. After my Plus Two class I never worn churidars or Salwar. I prefer always to be in tight jeans and pants along with tshirt or embroidered tops. But now my college authority is insisting on wearing churidars to college. But I want my churidar pants to be too tight without pleats that it stick to my thighs. But my friend is telling it may rip away easily unlike tight pants and jeans. What to do?
