Posted by Mike Shah on March 30th, 2017

The popularity of Indian Anarkali dresses has been unstoppable since it made its comeback in Bollywood. Women recognised the timeless and classic design of the Anarkali, with its form-fitting top and A-line bottom that compliments most body types. The name also translates to “Pomegranate Blossom” or “Bud of the Pomegranate Flower,” signifying the beauty and grace of the women who wear it. 

History says the dress was named after a woman named Anarkali, who was a dancer in the Mughal emperor’s court. According to legend, she was buried alive because of her illicit affair with Prince Salim who eventually also became an emperor of India. The dresses were then named after her to represent women who are skilled dancers and passionate lovers. The Anarkali dress is typically made with a variety of cloths such as high-quality silk, velvet, chiffon, plus embroidered with stones, gems, zardosi, zari and such. Traditionally, it is also worn with a Churidar and a Dupatta. Indian women have grown to love wearing the Anarkali because of its decadent design and quality, figure-flattering form, and colourful history.  

Indian women all over the world are looking for the perfect Anarkali dresses, but not everyone has access to it. Fortunately, thanks to technology, you can now buy Indian dresses from online shops. But how to find the perfect shop for you? 

Search for a website that has everything you need—from Anarkalis to Indian food and traditional jewelry. Check their customer reviews if they are widely regarded and trusted. Honest customer reviews will give you a feel if the shop is reliable. Look for shops that have sales and huge discounts that could give you high-quality dresses for cheaper rates. Also be sure that you could trust them with your credit card and personal details. For the whole experience to be hassle-free, research on the shop’s return and exchange policy. Do they accept returns for no additional cost? Also check if they allow order cancellations. Lastly, if you are in need of a beautiful Anarkali right away, check how fast they can ship your order to you.
