Bharathanatyam Costume : Traditional Bharathanatya costume suitable for all ages. The beautiful Pallu (Thallaippu) in the front makes the costume very rich and colorful. Small children will have a blouse with a small pleat in the front, instead of the Thavani (piece covering the blouse). The top portion is called Attached Thavani.
The skirt costumes are used for Padams and small items in Bharathanatyam. This costume is very comfortable and very easy to wear. This skirt styles best for ages above 15 years. Different styles can be chosen in this skirt model like Skirt model with the Thallapu in front and Skirt model with the Cross pleats attached to the normal pleats
Most liked by the dancers .The borders around the legs and the neatly pleated front portion gives a nice look to this costume. This costume will best suit a tall person, so that the three pleats are equally separated.

    When you are centered in oneness, your path becomes clear and

    your life flows in peace and harmony. When you are not centered, then the mind becomes confused in

    endless thoughts and choices and the many potential paths of action. – Lord Krishna
