A saree is a long strip of unstitched cloth that is draped over the body. It is popular in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Burma, and Malaysia.
The saree is worn with a petticoat (support garments to hold the saree) of a similar shade and with a matching or contrasting choli (blouse). While the saree can be draped in several different styles, the most common style is for the saree to be wrapped around the waist with the loose embroidered or printed end draped over the left shoulder.
