I have seen thousands of girls and married women wearing sleeveless blouses with saris, in New Delhi, Kolkatta, and Mumbai. Nobody really bothers and it is accepted as a very common dress.

However, in the South of India, including Kerala and even in Chennai, it is still considered a big taboo. Why should this be so? What is so bad about such a small thing, as a sleeveless blouse?

If women in Chennai also take to wearing sleeveless blouses with saris in a very big way, will the taboo go away?

Members, particularly women who are very comfortable wearing such dresses or who feel strongly against such taboo, may please present their views.
