We all love designer wear and all designers love cancan. Every designer makes sure they add a layer of cancan (or a million) under the lehenga/gown to give it that Fairytale Fall and Flair.
But contradictory to Popular opinion we advocate that you Control your emotions and your cancan both! Cancan not only adds to the flair but also adds quite a few problems which you don’t quite think about till it’s too late. Here’s a few things you should consider before you decide to go all out with a gazillion layers of cancan!
Weigh Your Decision
While it makes your outfit dreamier, cancan will add a LOT of DEADWEIGHT to your already heavy outfit! So weigh your decision properly & shed the extra baggage to keep only the amount that your petite body can handle! Psst…also remember – it will play Peekaboo!
It Adds a ‘KICK’ to Your Walk
Too much cancan can turn your dreamy cascade across the room into an Awkward Wobble 😖 ! Make sure you take a proper trial to see how much cancan you are comfortable walking in ‘coz you will pretty much have to kick your way across the room in all those layers!
Consider the Classic Clicks
If you think it will look good in pictures and that’s the basis for your decision to throw in extra cancan, Think Again! All that cancan actually makes it Super Hard for you to try sitting poses. In fact, with all that cancan under your lehenga, you can pretty much forget about that classic must have photo with your pretty lehenga spread out under you! Bummer isn’t it?! 🙁
There ain’t NO Rest in the Restroom
Bundled up in all those layers, you will need an insane amount of time to use the loo and quite a few helping hands! Peeing will seem like TORTURE with Acres of fabric under that lehengha!
Forget About Spontaneity
A quickie with your S.O. is completely OUT of Question!
You Don’t Take it OFF, You Dismantle It!
While it looks pretty when worn….all those layers of fabric underneath actually make for super clumsy undressing. Damn! Plus Popping out of a skirt that stays UPRIGHT with insane layers of fabric even after you’ve stumbled out of it, may give him quite the fright! Haha!😄
It Needs a LOT of Space
You do realize you have to store and keep that lehenga after the wedding right? The amount of space added cancan will occupy is NOT funny! In fact, traditionally fabric with so much work on it should be inverted and folded…quite impossible with layers of stiff net under it!
So wise up and for the love of god, control the amount of cancan you get! Or do one better get a Detachable Cancan Skirt! It will make your life soooo much EASIER.
And you know what, you will look prettier if you’re comfortable rather than dragging dead weight all night long, because ladies a typical Indian wedding takes roughly 8 hours, NOT counting the 4 hour makeup session before and the 2 hours of post wedding games and bonding time with the cousins after! You WILL like the option of offloading some of that weight a tad into the night and then you will thank us for talking you out of adding more layers just to ape that Red Carpet Look!
