Choli-sari blouse

A choli or sari blouse is a fitted garment which is designed to be worn under a sari. Choli designs can be quite varied, with a range of styles.

The choli goes by several alternate names, in addition to “sari blouse.” In Pakistan, the choli is known as a lengha, and in the Telugu language widely spoken in India, it is called a ravika. In addition to being worn with saris, cholis can be worn under the salwar kameez like camisoles, and they are also worn in the West over jeans and flowing gypsy skirts; many belly dancers in particular like to wear cholis in performance.
