    Hi! I am sorry but the information on churidaar is not completely right. 1)Traditionally churidaars were made of cotton but it wasn’t that tight, it was loose till thighs and semi fit on the knees. Later it was made fitted and was a new trend (actress Mumtaz use to wear tight churidaars and kameez)
    2) there’s no patiala churidaar, its called patiala salwar and also there’s no straight cut churidaar, its called pajamas or pants which was invented later. There’s onle one churidaar which you described earlier (as ita called churidaar because of the churi formation near the ankle)
    The rest are all called salwars like semi patiala salwar, patiala salwar, dhoti salwar. To translate in English you can say churidaar look like tights and salwar are similar to pants (there are many variations).
    Just wanted to correct 🙂
