Churidar Pajama or Choori Pajama is one of the favorite traditional dresses of South Asia. In the summer season perhaps Churidar Pajama is the most in dress for the women in this region. Churidar Pajama is designed in wonderful patterns and styles which are equally liked as casual and as formal wear too. The trend of Churidar Pajama dates back to the Mughal era during which it was particularly associated as court dress. Apparently this dress very much seems like Shalwar Kameez but it is very much different in its style and wear.
Choori Pajama is the name of this dress in the local language, Urdu in which “CHOORI” denotes as “Churidar” and “Pajama” means “trousers”. Churidar actually means a very tightly fitting pant or trousers which are narrow more quickly, so that contours of the leg are revealed. Churidar Pajamas accentuates the figure and due to this tight fitting the physique is adorably exhibited. Earlier, this dress was called by the British as Moghul breeches, long-drawers, or mosquito drawers.
Normally Churidar Pajama, the favorite South Asian attire is worn by the women with a tunic top which is called as Kameez while Men use Kurta for this purpose. In the most recent years, Churidar pajamas are liked with long shirts and long Dubattas. This dress has also gained significant popularity across Europe and America as many immigrants from the Indian sub-continent have brought this traditional attire along with them to these continents. Churidar Pajama is a splendid variation in the traditional long Shalwar Kameez which has become the most favorite dress among the ladies.
Women with medium height love to use pencil heal footwear with Churidar Pajama while long ladies prefer the traditional Khussa shoes. In both cases, Churidar Pajama enhances the glory and beauty of the user.
